Top 10 Habits – #9

Today’s Habit is #9 – choose a recovery strategy.

Itโ€™s not the training, but the recovery from training that makes you better. The training must be done to get the benefits of the recovery. Sorry!

Recovery is something you actively pursue, not something you let happen.

If you have been training long for awhile now, begin to focus on targeted recovery strategies. Each day, choose a recovery habit based on your nutritional level, goals, and training schedule.

Here are some examples we recommend:
๐Ÿฅ—Eat healthy meals that includes lean protein and lots of veggies and fruits
๐Ÿ˜ดWork on your nightly sleep ritual, take a nap or just rest
๐ŸถDo some fun โ€œnon-exerciseโ€ activities such as walking the dog or shooting some hoops
๐Ÿ•‰Take 5 minutes to do some extra stretches or do yoga
๐Ÿ›€๐ŸผTake a bath with Epsom salts
๐Ÿ’†๐ŸปGet a massage or use a foam roller at home
๐ŸŒณSpend some quality time in nature
๐ŸคDare to be quiet – learn to meditate

Reach out if you are ready to begin your journey!

On Friday for the next 10 weeks, I will be introducing one of our top 10 habits. We work with clients to develop these habits slowly so that they work into their lifestyle. We all have different occupations, family situations, stressors, obligations, etc.

These habits are GUIDELINES that you adapt to fit your needs as you begin to develop them and incorporate them into your daily life.

I decided to go from #10 and count down to #1. Fitness and nutrition changes are tough enough, and then throw on all of the conflicting information and it’s even worse.

We try to cut through the noise and simplify the changes that can have the most impact.

I didn’t say it was easy to implement, but they are simple concepts to understand. We can help apply them to YOUR situation.
