4 essential habits to speed up Muscle Recovery
Habit 1 – Stretching
Stretching your muscles after your Calisthenics workout is very important for muscle recovery. It does not have to be right after your workout, as long as you do it before you go to sleep. Why is this so important? Because your muscles are under a lot of tension during exercise. This causes your muscles to be really tight after your workout. When you stretch after your workout you will lengthen your muscle fibers, which will release the tightness in your muscles. If you had a push workout, you should stretch your chest, shoulders, and triceps. If you had a pull workout, you should stretch your back and biceps. We will give a few example stretches which you can do after your workout.
Muscle Recovery for your chest
- Stand at arm’s distance next to a wall;
- put your hand, a little above shoulder height, against the wall;
- keep your arm as straight as possible;
- turn with your body in the opposite direction;
- hold this position for about 45 seconds;
- do the same with the other arm.
