When you drive your body to its limits . . . extra maintenance is required! Rest and recovery or maintenance are critical components of any successful training program. They are also the least planned and underutilized ways to enhance performance. You may not be aware there is a difference between rest and recovery/maintenance or how to properly implement them both. If you train for ten hours per week, you have 158 non-training hours or 95% of your time left for rest and recovery. Where is all of this “extra” time going and why do you walk into your workout dragging? Most easily defined as a combination of sleep and time spent not training, rest is the easiest to understand and implement. How you sleep and spend this time is very critical. Recovery or maintenance, however, refers to techniques and actions taken to maximize your body’s repair. These include hydration, nutrition, posture, muscle balance, core strength, stretching, myofascial release, massage, stress management, compression, and time spent standing versus sitting versus lying down. Recovery is multifaceted and encompasses more than just muscle repair. Recovery involves chemical and hormonal balance, nervous system repair, mental state, and more.
