#THEDAILYGRIND 007: 4 Reasons Why You Need Regular Massage
Can massage really help you build muscle and get you to your goals quicker?
A week into the New Year and the first week of that new training programme. Are you feeling sore? Does every muscles and sinew ache? You might even feel like you’ve been hit by a freight train!
The chest is tight. You’re back is tight. Even your arms shake as you try to hold a pen and make those notes in that important meeting at work.
Your colleagues are looking at you, not as the picture of health and fitness you thought you’d be, but battered and broken like someone 50 years your senior.
And as for the two days after leg day… Well let’s just say you probably weren’t alone in struggling to get on and off the toilet for those two mornings.
These feelings and sensations are totally normal, especially if heavy weight lifting like I recommend in my Aesthetics Through Strength programme is new to you. Even I still get tight and sore after a tough workout. It comes with the territory and it’s almost like a badge of honour. A sign that you put the work in. That you battled through those last few reps when your body was screaming at you to stop.
Now’s the time you need to think about recovery. Nutrition, rest and good sleep are all necessary elements of recovery. And you can take this a step further with regular sports massages.
In this article I’m going to take you through 4 benefits of massage and how it can help your training and actually get you to your goals that bit quicker.
Results, quicker? Sounds awesome right? Let’s go…
