Post Workout Tips


So you finished with your workout session, what to do? Don’t just hop off the treadmill or whichever cardio machine you were using and neglect the cool down. The same goes for fitness classes , do not leave before the cool down/stretch  portion of the class.

Cooling down after exercising is just as important as the warm up. I think of the cool down like dessert. Yes, you heard me, this is the best part of your fitness routine.

 

This vital part of your exercise program promotes recovery as well as preventing injuries and helps to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness.

Always replace the fluids lost after a workout.

Stretch your hard working muscles, hold each stretch for 30 seconds, please, please do not bounce.

Make good use of the foam roller.
