Getting relaxed after workout is as much important as getting a right diet after a workout, because both will make you ready for next workout and prevents you from side-effects of workouts. So let me tell you few techniques about getting relaxed, you might have heard about few but other may be new to you.
Well you all have heard about it. So I’ll not say much on it. But just remember one thing, stretching is the base to get your body relaxed properly and you can’t avoid it any cost.
USING FOAM ROLLER
You might have also heard about it. And if you haven’t then let me tell you. It is used to massage huge muscles of the body like hamstrings(thigh muscle), Back muscles(both lower and upper), calves etc.
Way to do it: Place a foam roller on the ground and then place your calves on it and now roll on it from up and down such that it should be moving from knees to your ankles. Do the same on other parts of your body.
It is really a new technique, as we know foam roller is used on bigger muscles, it will be used on smaller muscles where form roller is not effective.
Way to do it: Take a Tennis ball and roll it over your body parts or muscles that are sored or can get sore. And try to find the parts which are paining and then try to roll the ball on that parts.
Yes, my favorite, and master of all other relaxing techniques, in which knowingly or unknowingly your whole body gets relaxed, but yes you should know your limits as it is, in itself is a very tiring sport and it tires you without giving any warning. To sum up about swimming, all the injuries that your body might have acquired during workout, will be absorbed by the water.
So now go out and do hard workout, as now you know ways to get relaxed.
