How to recover after sport?

Hydrate properly

In order to avoid muscle soreness and better recover after sport, it is advisable to hydrate after physical effort. Be sure to hydrate yourself properly after each exercise to avoid pain but also dehydration.

Take a hot shower

To relax your muscles after physical activity, take a hot shower. In addition, it helps to further eliminate toxins that you will have eliminated during exercise.

Regain strength

After practicing a physical activity, you can regain strength but in a reasoned manner. Avoid protein shakes and foods high in fat, sugar and salt. Instead, bet on smoothies or fruit.


To reduce post-exercise pain, do some stretching. You can for example put yourself in the cat position after an abdominal plank exercise. Get on all fours then round your upper back to stretch your back and your pelvis.
