Is this the missing link in your program? Introducing..

If you are injured, been injured, have had surgery, stressed and are always on the go: YOU MUST READ THIS IN IT’S ENTIRETY.

Most of you know that getting enough rest and exercise is essential to your overall well being, but many are still participating in high intensity workouts, sleeping less and always dieting. It’s a viscious cycle that takes its toll on the body and mind, sometimes resulting in injury that lead into surgery. The body can only repair and strengthen itself if you give it time to while you get full sleep, feed yourself whole balanced meals and commit to an integrative program that works on restoring your body. Continuous training at high intensity and or dieting and restless sleep or all of the combined can actually weaken the strongest individuals.

Restorative and recovery days are critical to overall performance of the body for a variety of reasons. Some are physiological and some are psychological.

Rest is physically necessary so that the muscles, mind and organs can repair, rebuild, and strengthen. For active individuals or those aspiring to be more active, building in rest days can help maintain a better balance between home, work, and body goals.

Restorative and recovery time is important because this is the time that the body adapts to the physical, mental and emotional stress. Recovery allows the body to replenish energy stores and repair damaged tissues.

This is also the time for soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) repair and the removal of chemicals that build up as a result of cell activity during exercise, injury or stress.

We undergo physical or emotional stress, our body adapts and becomes more efficient in compensation. It’s just like learning any new skill; at first, it’s difficult, but over time it becomes second-nature and this becomes your new normal.

Once you adapt to a given stress, you require additional stress to continue to live your everyday life. Are you starting to see the pattern? Stress needs more stress to survive in compensation that can lead to injury. Rest and Recovery needs restorative techniques to progress.

There are limits to how much stress the body can tolerate before it breaks down and risks injury. Doing too much will result in injury or muscle damage, but doing too slowly will not result in any improvement. This is why your practitioners at Fitness Studio 108 customize a specific training program that increase time, intensity, specific exercise selection and integrate restorative and recovery techniques to progress you for long term healthy living.
