It's not enough to simply follow a training program and forget about it the rest of the day. To truly get the most out of your body, you need to listen to it, be perceptive and most of all...be proactive.
The best and most resilient athletes listen to what their body is telling them and have taken the time to learn about their bodies, and have a toolkit of exercises, stretches and practices without needing a coach or therapist to prescribe them.
The following is the perfect detox from the rigours of sports. If you feel achiness in the morning, before/after sports, or anytime at all. This short circuit will gently drive blood flow to your knees, strengthen them and restore range of motion.
Walk Backwards - 180 seconds
Isometrics - 2 sets of 45 seconds per leg
Couch/Elephant Walks - 2 sets of 60 seconds
Some extra myofascial release along the quads, hip flexors and more can also be very helpful
