#b #qa #autoimmunedisease  #fitness 

Don't let the thought of soreness after exercise cause you to put off your workout for another time. When you test your body's limits, it's normal to feel it the next day. Even if it's just a little. Granted, some might use this as an excuse to skip the next workout, but there are really quick and effective ways to help your body recover. Follow these tips and spare your body the pain. That way you'll avoid getting out of bed the next day being an ordeal.

Stretch
Stretching is an important part of your workout. Before and after. Stretching after your workout will loosen tight muscles and send a signal to your brain that the workout is over. That it's time to relax.

Eat protein


You may already know that Freeletics training takes its toll on muscles. That's not a bad thing. That's why you get faster and stronger every week. You just have to make sure you nourish your body with plenty of protein, vitamins and minerals, as they help in muscle regeneration. Eat protein-rich foods and some fruit or vegetables half an hour after each workout. Try fish such as tuna and salmon, nuts and seeds, and lean cuts of beef.

Sleep
When you sleep your body repairs itself. It doesn't necessarily have to be 8 hours. Just make sure it's just the right amount for your body to recover from intense workouts. And make sure it's a good deep sleep too - no snoozing and no interruptions!

Stay hydrated

Always have water on hand for when you finish your workout. If you're giving it your all, you're going to get overheated and start sweating. Drinking water helps to calm the body and start the recovery process.

Cool down
Don't stop suddenly when you finish your workout. You'll end up dizzy afterwards and sore the next day. Just by walking for five minutes, your body returns to a relaxed state. It's important for your circulation, and you'll avoid making climbing the stairs the next day an ordeal.

Your workout should be hard, of course. If you want something, it costs you something. But you should never ignore what your body tells you. Recover quickly. Do your workouts even faster. In the Freeletics Knowledge Center you can find out much more about recovery, what processes are at work and how you can speed it up.
