MAKE TIME FOR RnR: REST & RECOVERY ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS


Just as each individual responds differently to training, a recovery program should be tailored to your response to training. Taking the time to plan out recovery is important to the success of a training plan.


During training the body will go through Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage (EIMD) followed by the inflammation process. The characteristics of EIMD include pain and tenderness within the muscle, decreased muscular strength and power, and increased muscular stiffness, resulting in decreased range of motion. The extent of EIMD is greater in individuals who are not used to a given exercise stimulus such as a new type of exercise, or volume of training. As a result, you’re more likely to experience delayed-onset muscle soreness, (DOMS); which is characterized as muscle soreness 24-48hours post exercise and explained by increased inflammation. This process is necessary for adaptation and improved muscular function. However, an imbalance between exercise and recovery leads to constant physiological stress resulting in fatigue and decrease in performance. Therefore, recovery should be actively and purposefully planned into your training routine.
