Rest and recovery apply to all sports. Simply because it’s during the rest period, our bodies are allowed to adapt to the stresses associated with exercise and are provided time to repair tissue damage. In addition, through sleep, the body releases the hormones that help with growth and replenish the body’s energy stores to prepare us for our next training better.
Every exercise triggers a stress or training response. When we push ourselves beyond our limits, our bodies undergo “stress” with depletion of energy reserves and damage of tissues, which our bodies will eventually repair and restore to maintain homeostasis. Our bodies will constantly adapt to the stress applied to them, such as the type of training we engage in based on our fitness goals and is accomplished through the recovery process.
After training, our bodies need a sufficient amount of rest and recovery. To adapt, there must be a time for rest when the body isn’t receiving any stress so that recovery can occur. Not having enough recovery periods can lead to incomplete recovery. The body will break down and become weaker, keeping off any potential gains and increasing the risk of injuries. The greater the stress, the greater the need for recovery. Recovery from exercise is a make-or-break period in which individuals are either at risk for adverse events or up for favourable training adaptations.
The human body will continually adapt to new stress levels until it becomes efficient and capable of achieving even higher physical demands. Training results in gains if the stress and recovery processes are managed appropriately. Depending on the type of training, our bodies will attempt to cope and match the physical and physiological needs the type of training requires, so our bodies adapt to it. Although exercise provides critical stress that drives beneficial adaptations, it is during recovery that adaptations take place. Intense training creates the need for longer recovery that leads to adaptation.
Recovapro understands how vital training is for improved performance. But as critical is the recovery period. So Recovapro comes up with a line of recovery tools to help you recover faster and more effectively. The faster your body recovers from a workout, the sooner you’ll experience the changes that your training can provide you, so you can continue to challenge yourself, provide more significant training stimuli, and achieve greater physical gains. So YOU TRAIN TO RECOVER, AND RECOVAPRO WILL BE AT YOUR AID ALL THE WAY!
