Top Recovery Strategies To Enhance Your Workouts

Happy Spring! I hope you are doing well and enjoying the extra hour of daylight that signifies Spring is here. Every extra minute of daylight creates more opportunity for working out and some extra “play-time” in the evening. It’s a GREAT time of year!

I was speaking to a committed client at Fitness Quest 10 last week about top strategies for recovery after her workouts. This client trains 3-4 times per week, eats well, and gets about 7 hours of sleep per night. She wants to lose 15 lbs and ramp up the intensity and frequency of her workouts another day or two per week but often finds herself sore. We explored ways for her to recover optimally, feel good, and get the most out of her workouts.

Optimal recovery is an essential part of everyone’s fitness regiment. Check out this short video clip with some of my “Top Recovery Strategies.” These are the strategies that can really help you perform and feel better.  Let’s get 1% better today – take a peek of the video.

Train hard.  Eat right.  Recover smart.  Live inspired!

Peace and God Bless,

    Hey Todd,

    I love the video! I have a question. Scientifically, why is it best to foam roll before a workout? And is that before the warm-up too?
