Recovery may be the most overlooked aspect of exercise. Everyone seems to focus on how many minutes to bike, what heart rate to run, or how much weight to lift. Improvements in fitness, however, occur during the recovery period between workouts, not during the workout itself. Since the recovery period is so important to maximize gains in fitness, you and your clients can benefit from guidelines on how to optimally recover after workouts.
