Recovery is the most critical component of an exercise program because the changes that make us faster and stronger happen during recovery. It is the key to mitigating injuries and allows the body to recover from exercise stress. There are various ways to include recovery in an exercise program, including active recovery, total recovery, or implementing periodization into training plans.
Recovery from exercise is an important piece of a well-balanced, effective training plan. When recovery is part of your training plan, you will be able to train at higher intensities reducing the risks of overtraining. If you aren’t sure if your program includes proper rest or recovery ratios, you can meet with a Fitness Specialist or Strength and Conditioning Coach at your Semper Fit Fitness Facility for a fitness consult.
Respect can mean different things to different people in any situation. Coach Nick Gounaris, the Combat Fitness Training Specialist for Headquarters Semper Fit and Recreation, talks about his perspective on respect as a strength and conditioning coach.
