5 Things You Should Do After Every Workout

This is a sponsored post with BODYARMOR as part of the Mom It Forward Influencer Network.

I actually am one of those people who say that they enjoy workouts. Between lifting weights with a personal trainer or even just my favorite dance fitness classes I’m one of those regulars at my local gym. I’m not sure how my workout has become the hardest yet most rewarding part of my day but that’s exactly how I feel.

 

5 Things You Should Do After Every Workout

  1. Do A Proper Cool Down – Your muscles have to go form an active burning state to a recovery state. It’s important that you properly cool down this allows your body to cool down. Just a five minute cool down is effective.
  2. Stretch It Out – This year I’m working on my flexibility so I actually enjoy stretching. Stretching allows your muscles to again recover but it’s about balance you don’t want to stretch too much and strain something. Find balance within your stretches.
  3. Roll It Out – Roll out your muscles with a foam roller. This helps increase your flexibility and blood flow. It helps me prevent being super sore as well and feels wonderful after a harder weight lifting workout.
  4. Eat Something – Consuming protein after a workout is important. It not only provides your muscles with much needed energy but allows those muscles to heal faster.
  5. Rehydrate – The more you sweat the harder you’re working. It’s not only important for your overall health to stay well hydrated but it’s also an essential part of recovery when it comes to working out. You’ll feel better and see more benefits if you are properly hydrated. BODYARMOR is a premium, sports drink that provides a superior hydration. It is packed with electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins and is low in sodium and high in potassium. It’s the perfect after workout drink for recovery.

    I really need to be more active and drink more water!



  2. Kristina Prewitt on February 5, 2018 at 5:57 pm

    I definitely hydrate and eat a protein bar but I am horrible at cooling down and stretching out. I am always in such a hurry and I need to take the time to slow down and focus on leaving enough time to properly unwind after a workout.



  3. Katherine S on February 2, 2018 at 6:18 am

    After a good workout, I take a cool rag and roll it up & dangle it around my neck. And I take a ice cube and rub it on my forehead & arms. While drinking a gatorade or powerade. Sometimes I drink a bottle of luke warm water so I don’t get cramps from downing ice cold water while my body is super hot.
