Flexibility, Stretching, Mobility and Recovery Training
Much emphasis is placed upon the act of physical training itself - which exercises to choose and how to perform them, for example... and not enough attention is focused on the warm-up, cool down, preparatory stretching and recovery drills.
These are essential components to getting the most out of your training and staying injury free and should not be overlooked.
Simple stretching and warm-ups are a given prior to your workout, but what are you doing post workout to ensure that you maximise recovery and progress?
Using something as simple as a foam roller or mobility ball will help break down knots and adhesions in the muscle and increase blood flow to speed recovery and reduce soreness.
