Some recovery tips
Lately I feel like I am constantly sore, but I kind of love it.... It's like a constant reminder of all the hard work I've been doing, but there's a fine line between good sore, and "I can't move" sore.
First things first, if you're not foam rolling after your workouts, you need to change that Grab your foam roller while you're body is still warm and roll on! It's one of the most effective ways to relieve sore muscles. Pop on out when you're watching TV and give yourself a little roll-out. It feels sooooo good and will help improve flexibility and mobility.
And if you want a little help getting used to using the roller, I just wrote a blog on six of my favorite body areas to foam roll. Check it out! Pair your roll session with these lower body stretches and you'll be feeling incredible.
Oh, and also, you know there are stretching and active recovery vids in the LSF app, right? When this challenge wraps up and you have a little extra time on your hands, I definitely recommend checking them out. Girl, recovery is SO IMPORTANT! Give your body some love!
