Do you even stretch, bro? If you ask me about feeling sore, I’m always going to run down the same check-list of questions with you: - do you stretch after your workouts? If you’re looking for long, lean muscles, stretch after you’ve exercised. Not stretching will create a more tight, bulky build. - foam roll/lacrosse ball? Yup, it hurts. But it hurts so good; maybe not in the moment, but tomorrow, you’ll be thankful. Foam rollers are , but for a deeper massage, a lacrosse ball is . I think a lacrosse ball is particularly helpful with sore glutes, hips, feet, shoulders and forearms. - drinking enough water? You should be drinking at least half your body weight in ounces every day. If you need help, download “Plant Nanny”, it’s the greatest! You’re welcome. - rest day? Everyone does this a different way. Some of you chose/need to be active every day (to stay sane). I feel ya! #mypeople BUT, you can’t go hard EVERY day and expect your body to respond EVERY day. You must allow your body to recover. So ... if you HAVE to move, do some active recovery days instead of a straight rest day (long walk, row, bike ride). - finally, protein/BCAA? These are essential to your fitness routine, both for muscle building and muscle repair. Don’t skip your recovery drinks. My FAVORITE during-workout drink - #pro6+ @elevatedsportsnutrition
