Why Post-Workout Pliability is So Important
When you put as much focus recovery as you do your training, your performance will reflect it. But recovery isn’t just resting — it is also an active process that will improve your performance and longevity. You can achieve this through post-workout pliability work. Post-workout pliability supports your body’s natural process of repairing and rebuilding muscles after intense activity.
The approach is similar to our own pre-workout pliability, but there is less force and less speed as we contract and relax our muscles.
During exercise, muscles fatigue and develop micro-tears. In the process of repairing themselves, your muscles become inflamed and lactic acid builds up in the tissue, both of which restrict the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood flow.
This all is a normal process. Most of us have felt that “pumped up” feeling we get after a workout. This isn’t anything necessary for muscle growth, it’s just lactic acid and temporary inflammation, which cause your muscles to feel tight and dense.
Post-workout pliability via our assisted devices, like our TB12™ Vibrating Roller and Vibrating Sphere, focuses on reducing inflammation and lactic acid buildup. This allows blood to circulate more freely and expedites the recovery process by helping muscles return to a more natural, long, and softened state. Ultimately, you’ll be able to work your muscles more frequently as you do more post-workout pliability work.
You shouldn’t let tight muscles slow you down. Proper post-workout pliability benefits you and is definitely worth it. It will alleviate muscle soreness and help you stay ready to perform — every time.
