NUTRITION – SLEEP – RELATIONSHIPS – ALONE TIME – PLAY TIME
Recovery is something that every client (and trainer) needs to work on. I constantly encounter people that exercise really hard 4-5 days a week yet fail to get any positive change in their health, performance, or weight on the scales. When you probe a little deeper, you might find out that they have zero planning in place to help them recover. They might have poor sleep, they can be dehydrated, or, more often then not, they are a little bit too stressed out.
“All work, no play makes homer go crazy”
If you’re taking your training, or life a little too seriously, in that state of heightened stress, you will find it very hard to loose body fat, build strength, or have healthy joints and a strong immune system. You will feel like you are spinning your wheels and getting nowhere.
If you feel like your trying your best, but your getting nowhere, or you just feel tired all the time, use this recovery checklist to get your training, and your health, back on track. You can call this better organisation, recovery advice, life coaching or whatever you want!
Try this for 1 month every day and make a real record of this in your training journal, and see what happens next!
