Five ways to recover the day after a good workout

Personal_Finance / Health and Fitness Sep 24, 2020 - 05:42 PM GMT

By: Sumeet_Manhas


We all know the feeling of getting back home after a nice workout. Feeling good about ourselves and the fact that we just did something good for our mind and body. But the next day can feel like a literal hell if you pushed yourself a bit too hard during the workout. And this is why you always need to recover after working out. Most people are not built to work out every single day and most of us also need a day or two for our bodies to recover after working out - to make sure that we are able to work out again later. In this article we give you some of our best tips on how to recover - as fast and good as possible - the day after working out.

1: Active recovery

Active recovery does not mean that you should not take the time to let your body relax after working out. Even though the feeling you get during and after a workout might be similar to the feeling of being in love or the feeling of winning a big jackpot in one of the best online casino sites - you should always plan some time to let your body recover from exercising. But this can also be done with so-called active recovery. This means that you - after for example going for a long run - can let your body relax for a few hours. After that you can boost your recovery by going for a walk to get the blood and oxygen flowing and to remove any waste products in your body.

2: Stock up on protein and drink water

The things you eat - and the things you do not eat - after a workout have a great impact on how quickly you can recover from your workout. It will also have an impact on the results that you get from working out. The best thing you can do for yourself and your body after working out is drinking a lot of water and eating something with a lot of protein in it. Whether you prefer eating meat or vegan or vegetarian alternatives, the most important thing is to stock up on protein after working out. The body needs protein to refill the body’s energy stocks. You can also go big and drink protein shakes if you do not think that you can get enough protein from  your regular diet. Also remember to drink a lot of water. Before, during and after working out. This is alfa omega.

3: Work out - again

Don’t get scared when we recommend that you work out again to recover from the first workout. But, if you are up for it, there are certain types of exercise that can help your body and your muscles recover after a hard workout. Yoga and stretching will help your body recover because they will increase the blood circulation in your body and thereby make sure that the tired muscles in your body get a lot of fresh blood pumped around to wake them up. Another benefit from doing this type of exercise to recover is that you will become more flexible which in the long run can help you become more efficient in other genres of exercise. Yoga will also have a positive impact on your circulation, breathing, and health in general.

4: Sleep and relax

This might sound like a pretty obvious advice for recovering from a workout - but that does not mean that it should not be said. It is very important that you relax and get a good night of sleep after working out. It is essential for your body and muscles that you get at least 8 hours of sleep every night to be able to properly recover from your workout. Sleep is essential for a lot of things - but mostly for your physical well-being which will also be influenced by your level of exercise and recovery from working out.

BONUS: If you get enough sleep you will be less likely to eat snacks and other unhealthy things. This will most likely have a negative impact on your progress and results of working out. And if you keep getting cravings, what’s the point of exercising at all?

5: Re-charge

Re-charge is sort of all of the other four tips combined. What is most important if you want to get the most out of your exercise is that you relax and re-charge after pushing your body to it’s limits. It is first of all important that you cool off after working out. Some people do this by taking a cold shower or going outside. This will also help speed up the recovery phase after working out. After that you should slow down. Not necessarily sit on the couch for the rest of the day - but restrict yourself to limited exercise for the rest of the day or preferably for 12-24 hours before your next workout.
