“Did you hurt yourself tonight?”

My wife saw me hobbling in the door, with ice strapped to my ankle after footy training.

“No, Rach, it’s all good. Just helps me recover better.”

I could see the relief in her eyes straight away!

It’s now a regular occurrence – me, walking in to the house with ice strapped to me somewhere!

And it’s the beginning of my recovery after tough training sessions.

When you workout, your muscles actually experience small tears in the tissue, and then when the tissues come back together, that’s when growth occurs.

To help that process along, it’s really important to recover properly, and allow your muscles the time to bounce back.

There are several things I do on a regular basis to help me recover, and I’ve talked about them in this week’s video.

What do you do to help you recover from your workouts?
