Exercise is a way for men to showcase their strength, however, proper rehabilitation and care are equally essential. NIKSA presents you with a detailed post exercise rehabilitation and care guide for men, including stretching, massage, and body care methods, to help you recover vitality faster and more comprehensively.
1. Proper stretching:
Timing: Immediately after exercise
Overall body stretching: including full body stretching of the neck, shoulders, waist, and limbs, with each area maintained for 15-30 seconds.
Focusing on exercise areas: Targeted stretching is performed on newly exercised muscles to relieve muscle tension.
Breathing deeply and exhaling shallowly: When stretching each time, combining deep and shallow breathing can help improve muscle flexibility.
2. Effective massage:
Timing: Within a few hours after exercise
Self massage tools: Use massage rollers, massage sticks, and other self massage tools to roll and massage tired muscles.
Local deep massage: You can choose to seek professional masseurs for deep muscle massage to promote blood circulation.
Alternating hot and cold massage: Using a hot and cold towel or massager for alternating hot and cold massage can help alleviate muscle fatigue and swelling.
3. Body care and repair:
Timing: The day after exercise
Hot water soaking: Taking a hot bath can help relieve muscle tension, increase body temperature, and promote blood circulation.
Sleep quality: Maintain sufficient sleep time to promote the body's self repair and metabolism.
Supplementing nutrition: Increase protein intake, help muscle repair and growth, while maintaining sufficient water intake.
4. Moderate activity and rest:
Timing: Days after exercise
Low intensity activities: Engaging in light and relaxing activities such as walking or swimming can help promote recovery.
Regular rest: Avoid continuous vigorous exercise and give the body sufficient recovery time.
Progressive training: Gradually increase the intensity of exercise during the recovery period to avoid sudden intense exercise that can cause injury.
