How to Recover Quicker from Workouts

Fascia Relief Techniques and Stretching

Foam rolling is a good way to relief muscle sourness. When you do foam rolling it mimics that of a massage in which your Fascia which connects most of the tissue in your body stretches out. This intern alleviates tightness and may aid in recovery. In addition to recover I would say stretching is necessary. Stretching increases the blood flow to your muscles which well help to speed up your recovery. If you’re interested in Fascia Relief this foam roller is an item I would recommend.

Eating Foods that are High in Amino Acids

Eating foods that are loaded with Amino Acids will increase muscle protein synthesis. This means that you will be able to build more muscle in a shorter period of time. Some foods that are really high in Amino Acids include. Beef, Pork, Chicken, most nuts and a variety of other meats.

Getting more Sleep

If you are someone who likes to stay up late and has to wake up early I have bad news for you. One of the most overlooked parts of recovery is getting sleep. During sleep your body is at rest so you can rebuild muscle fibers more efficiently. This is mostly because during stages 2 and 3 of your sleep cycle your body releases HGH(human growth hormone). In addition during sleep blood flow is increased aiding drastically in muscle recovery.

Eating more Protein for Muscle Growth and Recovery

Another big part of recovering from a workout is getting enough protein in your diet. Protein is the building blocks of all muscle in the body. When you eat foods that are high in protein your body uses that protein to repair muscular tissue. I would recommend getting about .75 to 1.5 times your body weight in grams of protein. If you are eating more protein then that you are just wasting it.

Though if you have bad form when Exercising your recovery may not be muscular. You may be causing damage to your joints and tendons. Check out my Exercise Form page here http://fittnessathome.com/common-exercises-form/
