Recovery from Workouts Should be Active
Have you ever realized after a long break from exercise, your first day back is one of your best workouts? Athletes should put in equal amounts of planning and energy into their recovery; sleeping, eating, and soft tissue work. Without these methods of regeneration, the breakdowns achieved during training can never be compensated for.

While Sparta coaches are on-site with hands-on soft tissue techniques, such as Active Release Therapy, several options are also available to do on your own. Perhaps the most widely used AND effective is to release your IT band, the muscle running down the side of your leg. A cheaper, longer lasting solution to a foam roller, is a thick PVC pipe. 10 repetitions down each leg for this muscle, and others such as the calf, will go a long way to increasing your performance goals.
