When it comes down to it, our recovery routines should be given just as much thought as our workout routines. We can learn a valuable lesson from professional athletes from previous generations, athletes who now have trouble getting around and performing simple tasks because they've pushed their bodies to the limits.
When we work out, we put our bodies through tremendous strain. It's important to have a plan in place to recover properly.
Drink coconut water right after your workout -- it's a great way to get a quick hydration boost. Make sure to have at least half your body weight in ounces of water per day to stay properly hydrated.
Stretch it out after your workout. If you can develop a yoga practice, this is all for the better. For every hour you work out, you should stretch for half an hour. Your body and joints will thank you!
