So, you just finished an awesome workout.

You’re feeling phenomenal.

Somehow though, you also feel like collapsing too.

You’ve maxed out on reps.

And you’re downright exhausted.

I understand.

But wait, don’t pass out just yet…

If you want to make the most out of your workout, there some essential things you need to do.

The list below are examples of some things you can incorporate in to your post-exercise regimen.

Oh, and don’t worry, most take less than 10 minutes.

If you want to feel even more amazing, if you want to MAXIMIZE your results and mood, consider this post-work routine:

  1. Drink Water: This one might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many ladies forget to hydrate after a workout. Especially in the heat. It’s important to replenish your body with the water it loss during your exercising. Always be hydrating.

  2. Stretch: Stretching can be considered a cool down activity. And right after a workout, it helps relax your muscles and prevent post-workout injury and cramps. Try doing stretches that correspond to the muscle groups you worked on for the best results.

  3. Use a Foam Roller: Ever wanted a deep-tissue massage right after a workout? Well, you’re in the right place. Because the foam roller does just that for your muscles. Like stretching, it helps prevent injury. But post-workout, it helps apply dynamic pressure and healing. Ladies, take advantage of this free massage. No spa required.

  4. Eat a Post-Workout Snack: Like hydrating, many ladies also don’t eat after workouts and this is a problem. Listen: Not eating won’t help you lose weight. It will actually cause your body to retain weight, for survival because your body will believe it is in starvation. So, please eat nuts or berries or even greek yogurt after your workout. A healthy mix of protein and carbs will do.

  5. Log Your Workout: Writing down your workouts and progress can be extremely powerful. Logging workouts doesn’t just provide insight on what you’re doing, but also holds you accountable and provides a mental boost, as well. By journaling, you’re able to reflect on your journey and the strides you’ve made to improve.

  6. Sleep: We’ve spoken about the importance of a good night’s rest before. Poor sleep is a major risk factor for weight gain and obesity. Talk about reversing your workout results. Rest is also important for your body. You need adequate time to recover and sleep is the best way to recharge and provide your body the boost it needs to conquer the next day.
