Rock and ROLL! With POUND, there’s no getting past being sore. It comes with the territory, right? When you’re ROCKING as much as you are, you need to be ROLLING too! 🙂
Whether you have a roller or need to borrow one from the gym, find some time to roll out a few times a week. After your workout, your muscles tighten up. Foam rolling is like a deep-tissue massage. Rollers help release tension points, loosen your muscles and help them return to their relaxed, elastic state — ready and raring to go for your next workout. You can grab one from Amazon or any sports store.
Turn up the Hydration!
During an average 45-minute workout, you can lose up to 20oz of fluid. In order to properly recover, you have to hydrate! Dehydration can cause muscle cramping and headaches — none of us have time for such things! 😉 Make sure you rehydrate by drinking at least 16oz of h2o after you POUND the pavement. Jazz up your water by adding some flavorful Cool It Cubes!
Throw together a quick fruit salad within 45 minutes of working out and reap the benefits! Not sure what to throw in? Pineapple is anti-inflammatory and helps your muscles recover. Watermelon helps with muscle soreness and is an excellent source to replenish electrolytes. Kiwis are packed with vitamin C and potassium. So eat up!
