In this video, we’re going to talk about recovery and how you can determine your recovery level.

If you’re an athlete, there are a lot of different tests you can do to determine your recovery. But, if you don’t have access to tests like a heart rate recovery test, you can go by other factors.

You have the body recovery rate, and then you have the being recovery rate. In your mind, you may be someone who can handle intense exercise, but your body may be older and not able to handle it. This can result in serious injuries. 

Body recovery has to do with your ability to repair. There are repair proteins or enzymes in the body that do the work of repairing damage at the DNA level. These repair proteins require nutrients, or they don’t work that well.

Your adrenal glands help you adapt to stress. If you have a lot of stress in your life, it builds up, and your adrenals won’t be able to function as well. One of the most important things to do for this is to get plenty of sleep.

How to measure recovery level:
• Heart rate – Test
• Sleep – You can’t sleep at night after a good workout
• Blood pressure – Your blood pressure goes way too high for many hours after you work out and it doesn’t rebound
• Mood or stress reaction – How long does it take you to bounce back from stress mentally
