Day-After Game Recovery Workouts

Recovery workouts the day after a game are extremely important to a team’s performance. By completing recovery workouts you can help to accelerate adaptation and maximize performance. Some recovery tools include:

  • Stretching
  • Getting a good night sleep
  • Light aerobic workout (only at 60%)
  • Pool sessions
  • Relaxing your mind
  • Eating right
  • Massages
  • Contrast Shower
  • Hyperbaric oxygenation
  • Hydrothearapy

If you don’t allow your body to recuperate, it will lead to damage muscles which then lead to:

  • Contact Injuries
  • Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
  • Muscle Contractions
  • Muscle Pulls
