The importance of recovery days

Whether you are a sports addict or new to the practice, you have to consider the importance of recovery days. It is often skipped because active people tend to think they lose an exercise day. Nevertheless, those rest days allow your muscles to relax after an intense effort. Even though a regular activity (about 30 minutes a day) is really healthy, an over-active lifestyle may cause serious injuries.

In order to prevent these problems, pay attention to stretch at the end of every workout and focus on the muscles you just worked. It is recommended to hold the stretch for at least 60 seconds immediately after the exercise. A hot bath or shower will also help your muscles to relax and prevent the pain on the next days.

Nevertheless, rest day doesn't mean lying on the sofa all day. You could have an entire stretching routine (from 30 minutes to 1 hour). As you tend to tighten your muscles during the workout, this habit will benefit to your flexibility. It is also possible to use fitness accessories, such as a foam roller, which will provide a massage to release the soreness.
