What is Synergy?
The interaction of elements, that when combined, produces a total effect that is greater than elements as individuals. MySynergy strives to restore your body's natural synergy for improved performance and wellbeing.
What does this mean for me?
As we age, our body's ability to regenerate new tissue slows down, which is crucial for our overall health. Although exercise is beneficial, it's crucial to prioritise the recovery stage, which is often overlooked. Neglecting this stage can lead to injuries of varying severity, hindering training performance. Regardless of training purpose, whether for a specific event or for enjoyment, recovery should not be taken lightly.
Why is recovery so important?
Recovery is a crucial phase that allows your body to repair any damage resulting from physical activity, ensuring optimal performance for future activities. Failure to prioritise recovery can lead to suboptimal performance and increased risk of injury over time.
How can I recover?
Rest - Sufficient sleep is crucial in promoting recovery from both physical and mental exertion during exercise. Experts recommend a duration of 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to support optimal recovery.
Hydration and nutrition - To support the recovery process, it is crucial to provide your body with adequate nutrients, including macronutrients such as protein, fats, and carbohydrates, as well as micronutrients obtained from fruits and vegetables. Additionally, staying hydrated by consuming sufficient fluids is essential.
Massage - During physical exercise, the body undergoes continuous stress and pressure due to changes in force, direction of movement, among other factors. As a result, waste products like lactic acid can accumulate and impact the muscles. Sports massage can help alleviate muscle tension, facilitate the dissipation of lactic acid, and enhance blood flow to the muscles. These benefits aid in a quicker recovery time, allowing you to perform better in subsequent events or workouts.
