How to plan the perfect recovery

Warm down, nutrition, muscle stimulation, sleep, days off

Muscle stimulation

Whilst it may seem logical that the best way to recover is to simply not do anything, sometimes  being static for hours can leave leave your legs feeling stiff and out of sorts. Stimulating blood flow helps to remove toxins that have built up from training whilst also keeping the muscles supple.

Electrotimulation is portable and can be used for training, injury and recovery

Something as simple as a gentle walk after dinner can help and whilst massage plays a daily part of a professional rider’s routine we don’t all have the luxury of a soigneurs hands after every ride, but we do have our own! Try massaging your own calves and quads, gently pushing the blood back towards the heart. A regular stretching routine can be used to relax both the body and mind whilst an electrostimulation device, such as a Compex, is designed to deeply invigorate the muscles and promote faster recovery. Being portable means you can do this practically anywhere and at anytime – at home, in a hotel, in bed or even on the way back from an event in the car – provided you’re the passenger of course!
