Athletes Post Exercise Recovery

LinkedIn discussion post on Executive Athletes: What do you think is the most effective method of recovery? As I am getting older I am finding that recovery is taking longer and longer and the time between hard efforts are the same.

Response: A 45-min cool down (15 minutes for every hour of intensive training) can present a barrier to sports training. Although it’s ultimately an individual matter, the time it takes to cool down can be drastically reduced with better adaptation by working with the physiologically correct recovery protocol.

What needs to be accomplished? Homeostasis… at a completely new Peak Metabolic Potential ™ (PMP™). What does this require? Equitable distribution of the vascular and lymphatic circulation to all tissues in the sequence that prevents competition for oxygen, harmonizes each hormone plexus in the five anatomical cavities, restores balance between the central and peripheral sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, equalizes muscle V02max throughout the body, and normalizes core temperature – for starters.

If accomplished without stress, the resulting chemical balance or acid base equilibrium provides the ideal cellular environment for recovery at an accelerated rate. The idea that this is possible within a five to fifteen minute cool down, is revolutionary. It has to be experienced really to be understood, the concept is so radical.



Try pHx™ Dynamic Stretching

When I set out to identify the exact exercise sequence and pattern that could radically reduce the time it takes to reach peak physical condition for the 2010 Olympic games, I knew it was a daunting task. How do you maximize the metabolic electric potential for sports performance in as little as 5 to 15 minutes without disrupting chemical balance of body pH? How do you balance V02max in all the muscles that fast without making the body acidic? These are the critical questions since most exercise deaths are the result of heart attack. Body pH balance is necessary for heart health, conditioning speed, and overtraining injury prevention/recovery. A revolutionary dynamic stretching warm-up cool down that can rapidly restore body pH balance at the same time that it equalizes V02max in all muscles, is required to achieve pH fitness at Peak Metabolic Potential™ (PMP™). Almost four decades of testing and research has produced Body’Fit pH Fitness™ (short form… pHx™), It’s now possible for sports athletes to get More Out of Exercise™ without acid pH stress in 5 to 15 minutes depending on the speed and rep pattern of the 24 movement/ breathing exercises in the Body’Fit pHx routine.
