6 Tips to Speed Up Recovery & Prevent Soreness

 Whether you workout twice a week or five, I'm sure you've experienced DOMS (delayed on-set muscle soreness). While pushing yourself in your workouts can leave you sore the next day, here are some ways to speed up muscle recovery and prevent soreness.
Pre-workout nutrition
Don't workout on an empty stomach. The best pre-workout meals have carbs and protein to promote muscular endurance, provide energy and help speed recovery. Don't like eating before, use Aminos to prevent muscle breakdown.
Eat nutrient rich foods post workout
Carbohydrates and protein are key minerals for muscular recovery. Try eating a banana and protein shake post workout to replenish your muscles.
Staying Hydrated
Proper hydration before and during exercise increases oxygen to your muscles, which gives your muscles more stamina and also aids in their recovery as you work out.
Quality Sleep
We lose more muscle during our sleep cycle than any other time. We recommend at least 8 hours of sleep and adding a Casein shake to help feed your muscles during its natural recovery cycle.
Active Recovery
Doing some active recovery, like biking or walking, help to stimulate blood flow and circulation to the muscles helping to relieve soreness.
Avoid over-training
Make sure your body is getting plenty of recovery time between workouts. If you like working out during the week, try taking the weekends off.
