Training intelligently with a properly organized training strategy is key to the advancement of your fitness in endurance sport. Your ability to rebound, recover and be ready for the next day of training is a key separator among competitive athletes. Strategies to accelerate recovery include optimized nutrition (pre-during-post), adequate sleep, regular body work and equipment that is sized and fit properly to you (ie bike fitting). A great way to bridge deep tissue therapy appointments is to do self-myofascial release work using implements like a foam roller, TP massage ball, the Stick or Tiger Tail. Another method of accelerating your recovery in through the use of gradient compression as conducted through a unit like Recovery Pump. Here is how the Recovery Pump works.
I’ve used my Recovery Boots over the past few years both as part of my triathlon training recovery regimen but also during pregnancy to ward off swelling in my legs and ankles. I never had issues with edema and my legs felt great even through my third trimester!
