HOW TO: GET THE MOST OUT OF EVERY WORKOUT

1.) STRETCH!!!

One of the easiest things to forget but also one of the easiest things to add in. Even if you know you aren’t very flexible; even the basic simple stretches held for at least 30 seconds can do a world of good for your body. Stretching after you finish your workout increases the blood and nutrients to be sent to your muscles to help rebuild them!

2.) COLD SHOWER:

This is a tough one, I know. You know how ballerinas (or any athlete, for that matter) will get in a ice bath after finishing long hard rehearsals or practices? This is the same kind of idea, just not as painful ; ) It helps to lessen the swelling of muscles and also supposedly shortens the recover time after a hard training session. This is really is more for after quite an intense session, rather than just your average run.

3.) PROTEIN PACK:

The statement that 80% of muscles are made in the kitchen is 100% true. Your body needs to give your muscles supplements to keep rebuilding. While exercising, your muscles are breaking down (hence the burn 😉 ), so be sure to give them the right kind of fuel to continue developing. If you’re looking for some ideas for quick protein; check out some ideas found in this post.
