Those who consider themselves to be among the ‘hard core’ or ‘dedicated’ gym goer can often find that they start to have slight aches, pains, niggles and take just that little bit longer to recover than they did before.
Slower recovery does happen as we age, that’s just one of those unfortunate consequences of a long life, however, there are plenty of ways you can aid your recovery and keep your body younger for longer.
Longevity is the key and here are two ways on how to achieve if:
Do this daily – Foam rolling and some basic stretching. You could even take up a yoga class once per week.
Do this once a month – Have a full body massage.
If you do those two things you will find you recover faster, have less aches and pains, and generally feel better.
Before you say there is not time to foam roll/stretch in the day let me interject, you can do it when you’re watching TV. As for the mass you will need to take some time out and invest a little cash but it is 100% worth it.
Here are some useful links to get you started:
Do those and you will reap the rewards or longevity.
