Ugh! Getting back into a workout routine feels great… until the soreness sets in! We all know that consistent exercise offers so many benefits for our body and brain. But before the benefits kick in, it may seem that sore muscles, stiff joints, and fatigue are all we  gain. At CopperJoint, we know that you’re more likely to stick with that workout routine if you don’t have to suffer through extreme muscle soreness, inflamed joints, or any number of other ailments. So try these simple tricks to minimize those downsides and maximize your workouts.

1 • Rest

Every good trainer will emphasize the importance of rest. Whether your exercise routine consists of cardio or weight training or both, rest is crucial. Insufficient rest can lead to burnout and fatigue, making your body much more susceptible to injury and exercise much more difficult. If you weight train, you should always rest 24-72 hours between training the same muscle group.

2 • Sleep

Sleep is another critical part of rest and recovery. During sleep, the muscle-building hormones are active and the muscle-depleting hormones decrease. So be sure to maximize your workouts by planning plenty of rest between workouts and creating a healthy sleep routine of eight hours a night.

3 • Hydrate

Exercise and an increased metabolic rate both require more hydration and dehydration can slow the recovery process. Getting water and electrolytes is imperative to a faster, less painful workout recovery. A good rule of thumb is to drink one liter of water for every 1,000 calories burned.

4 • Fuel

A post-workout snack is an important way to refuel your body after a tough workout. Having a snack high in protein to help muscles recover and carbohydrates to help replenish glycogen is ideal. Some great snack ideas include low-fat greek yogurt with berries, a fruit smoothie with whey protein powder, or brown rice cakes with peanut butter and banana.

5 • Compression

Lastly, wearing a CopperJoint compression sleeve to help stimulate circulation and prevent inflammation is a simple, affordable, but highly effective way to maximize your workout and keep your workout recovery time at a minimum. Remember that all compression sleeves are not created equally! With CopperJoint’s copper-infused compression sleeves, you know you’re getting quality, anti-microbial, anti-slip technology to work for you so you can workout without the pain. Order yours today!
