Recovery
A key role in the process of enhancing your behaviors.
There are several exercise recovery techniques and strategies that can aid in the process of attaining your objectives.
Recovery strategies one may implement may include tools, such as foam rollers, percussion instruments for physical manipulation, and several others mechanisms, such as the use of compression boots. These recovery techniques may assist in the muscle growth process, as well as in preventing future risk of injury. Improved range of motion, reduced muscle soreness, and even reducing stress are other benefits one can come by from applying these techniques.
For example, the use of Compression boots post-training, may help alleviate pain by reducing inflammation and swelling. Compression boots may accelerate recovery by decreasing lactate accumulation in your legs by repeated vascular compression and release. Increasing circulation in your legs and relieving (DOMS)- Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, is another benefit of utilizing compression boots.
Percussion instruments such as massage guns, can be used accelerate recovery time by reducing tension in your muscles as well as assisting with DOMS. These instruments can be used to separate scar tissue and increase blood flow. Percussion instruments may increase range of motion throughout your body, which may be beneficial for performance purposes. Increased range of motion can lead to muscle growth, as well as strength. By taking your muscles through new found ranges of motion, they are inclined to maximize on the recruitment of muscle fibers, therefore enhancing muscle growth. It is contraindicative to use massage guns for individuals who are pregnant, wear pacemakers, or have diabetes with complications such as neuropathy.
Foam rollers are other portable tools that may be used to improve range of motion, as well as accelerate recovery. The use of foam rollers, also known as self-myofascial release, may be of assistance to decrease pain, improve range of motion, as well as increase blood flow that enhances blood lactate removal. Foam rollers may be used multiple times a day. It is contraindicative to use foam rollers for individuals with hypertension, pregnancy, areas of injury, osteoporosis. It is not recommended to foam roll areas such as your cervical spine, or lumbar spine.
In conclusion, there are various techniques and strategies that one may use to enhance and accelerate the recovery process, propelling you towards your objectives. Whether the use of compression boots, foam rollers, or percussion instruments, the idea is to optimize your recovery by minimizing the risk of setbacks and improving your efficiency. As you continue on your journey towards achieving your goals, prioritizing your recovery may be a pivotal point to focus on to promote peak-performance.
Remember to always consult your physician or primary care doctor when considering the use of these tools or instruments.
