Great video on the science of exercise recovery to clarify any confusion:
- Massage is good for you but if you cannot afford one everyday use a foam roller.
- Compression boots and socks are helpful but only after a workout.
- Stretching does not appear to help with soreness or improve gains.
- Cold water immersion is not worth the time and effort.
- Eat carbs after a workout within 2 hours to fastest glycogen replacement.
- Skip supplements and eat whole foods.
