The more you train the stronger you get, but when training gets too much it leads to fatigue. When fatigue builds up you experience reduced performance and risk sudden training injury. It is important to take breaks from your regular training to allow muscle recovery.
Tips for speedy muscle recovery
- Take a complete rest from training – missing one or two days cant hurt?
- Hot baths with bath salts,
- Stretching properly
- Stay hydrated day in day out
All the above will all add to the big picture of good recovery and reducing injury.
The tips can also be followed by runners who want a speedy recovery from a half marathon or a full marathon.
