  1. Fuel your body well pre-workout

Believe it or not the best form of recovery begins even before hitting the gym. Read up on the best type of meals or snacks you can have pre-workout, to ensure that you not only train better but also assists in muscle recovery.

  1. Stretch

A lot of people focus on stretching before the workout but not after. For the best recovery ensure that you stretch for a good twenty minutes with a lot of focus on the muscle you were working.

  1. Soak in a bath

I prefer a shower but when I have overdone it, I enjoy soaking in a bath with some bath salts. Some athletes combine a mixture of hot and cold showers or an ice bath.

  1. Get a massage

Nothing quite eases the muscles like a massage but the price tag can tense them right up again. You can do a self-massage and even use the foam.

  1. Rehydrate

Straight after the work out drink water, supplement it by having a protein shake as protein assists in muscle recovery. My brother swears by drinking a recovery supplement as it gives him energy.

  1. Light workout

It is best to give your muscles a two-day break but you need to keep active you can achieve this by taking brisk walk around your neighbourhood or going for a swim.

  1. Avoid over training

For the best recovery do not overdo it. Pace yourself do a workout that matches your fitness level and listen to your body when it says it’s too much.
