Strength & Conditioning
One of the important facets of Physical Recovery is strengthening and conditioning the body. The human body is one of the most resilient organisms on this planet. It is capable of adapting to the stresses we place on it, so long as it’s done in a proper progression. The long term benefits of strength and conditioning increased strength of the muscle fibers as well as increased formation of bone tissue and reduction of percentage of body fat.
One of the tenets of physical recovery is to get the hardest working muscle in your body back into peak physical condition. The heart is the hardest working muscle in the body and it shouldn’t be overworked. Physical recovery will entail a gradual progression into peak cardiovascular fitness through purposeful movement.
Flexibility & Rest
Rest is one of the most overlooked tools on the road to physical recovery. Not only does rest help with memory formation, it also reduces the amount of inflammation in the body, allows for your body to lose more fat with exercise, and lowers your stress levels!
Diet & Nutrition
A proper diet is the final tenet of physical recovery. Your body is resilient but cannot take care of itself unless it’s given the tools to do so. Everyone needs the proper blend of macro and micro-nutrients, form amino acids in proteins, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. Furthermore, the consumption of processed foods has been shown to increase levels of inflammation within the digestive system, having negative ramifications on its innate healing processes.
