A short cool-down interval can help you transition from vigorous exercise back to regular life.
- Gentle exercise
Transition from your primary workout to 3 to 5 minutes of mild exercise.
The motions done here should resemble your primary workout but done at a lower intensity. If you just went for a run, by way of example, cool down with a couple of minutes of fast walking. A cool-down after strength training may contain repetitions of a prior lift but done in a considerably reduced resistance or weight.
2. Static stretching
A static stretch necessitates holding a stretch pose for a brief period, usually 30 to 45 seconds. (Dynamic stretching involves active moves.) Static stretching helps to increase flexibility.
3. Healthful re-fueling
Eating and drinking healthily within 3 hours of exercising is essential to your recovery.
Avoid sports drinks which are high in calories and sugar.
