Sweet Sweat UK & Europe
Congrats on another great workout! You’ve dropped the last barbell, ran your last lap, curled the last rep, squatted your last squat, crunched your last crunch. You’re almost at the finish line.
We know the last thing you want to do after a workout is…well, anything…so we devised a fast and easy post-workout routine to have you vegging out in no time.
Walk for 3-5 minutes until your heart rate drops below 120 bpm.
Perform static stretching— target the major muscle groups you worked, holding each pose for 10-30 seconds
Want to make this step even easier? Use a therapy gun. There’s a reason these instruments are taking the world by storm (and why there’s currently a wait list to get one!) Therapy guns utilize percussive therapy techniques to increase blood flow to the target area and reduce inflammation.
This means reduced soreness, increased mobility, and a grateful future self.
And remember to keep drinking water throughout the day. A hydrated body is a happy body.
Don’t worry if this sounds complicated— have a banana & check out this recipe for a super easy (and delicious) protein smoothie.
So, sit back & relax. You’ve done the heavy lifting— let your body handle the rest.
