Did you know it is possible to back up day after day to train for whatever your fitness + movement goal is without burnout, without that heavy muscle feeling, without constant colds or sore throats, without depleting your energy…? Yep it absolutely is. And the key… Your recovery. The single biggest factor in performing your best whether it be chasing world titles, going for a PB, running out on the pitch with your team or simply wanting to be in your best health is your recovery. This is often the overlooked or not taken seriously. Not only is performance enhanced when you can recover so is your longevity. If you want to be able to continue to show up for your fitness + movement goals no matter what age, the secret lies in how much effort you are putting into your recovery.   In this episode I explore
  • The reasons you shouldn’t skip your cool down
  • Why it’s important to be in the parasympathetic state as much as possible
  • The key nutrients needed to help you recover
  • How your Immune System can play a role in your recovery
  • Why the Liver is important for your recovery
  • How to mitigate the effects of inflammation + stress
  • Key nutrients needed
  • Why recovery is important at any age
It really doesn’t matter what your fitness + movement goals are, recovery is just as or even more important than the training session.   PLEASE NOTE: This podcast is generalised information and should never be taken over actual medical advice.

Quotes that made me hum…

{

Our central nervous system has two main arms.

The sympathetic side is also known as our flight or fight. Adrenalin and cortisol sit in this sympathetic side.

The parasympathetic side is also known as our rest and digest system.

The kicker here is that you can’t be in both at the same time

 

{

We need to stress our bodies so they can upgrade.

We also need to mitigate and balance that stress with proper recovery.

{

Another often overlooked contributor to recovery is the liver.

All of the by products of the degradation and repair of your muscles are processed by the liver. We need this to be in top working order.

In fact as nutritionists your liver function test can tell us a lot about what could be hampering your recovery.

{

Recovery is also just as important whether we are 15 or 50.

 

{

Depending on what type of training you have done and how long that training session has been, you have a defined window of time in which your muscles are open to using the carbohydrate you eat to replenish it’s stores of glycogen.
