4 Ways to Recover After A Workout ~ #SciencePlusNature #PROcureHeals


Here's the honest truth about me - I hate working out! I have a free lifetime membership to all military gyms and there's even a treadmill in my home. My husband owns a weight bench and there's a myriad of weights that can be used. However, until recently, working out has not been on my mind because of how I tend to feel after an intense workout, and the time it takes to recover.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PROcure. All opinions are 100% mine.


Lately, getting back into shape has been on my mind more frequently than it has ever been. After a visit to my doctor, the dreadful news is that I'm overweight and it's affecting my health. Back pain has always been an issue for me, and once again, my physical therapist recommended that I recommence yoga as it's not as intense or stressful. Every once in a while I may make it to the gym for a high intensity workout and cardio, but not as often as I would like to. Nonetheless, after an energetic workout at the gym, my body generally feels as though it's been through the wringer. So how do you recover after an intense workout? I want to share these four ways that I get it done.


1. Massage Massages not only feel great and aid in relaxation, but they assist in working out the kinks and knots while improving your circulation. I generally have my husband massage my back after a workout, but once a month I get a deep tissue massage which really helps my muscles.

2. Stretch Stretching after a workout should always be part of your routine. Just as you stretch before your workout, stretching after a workout is beneficial. It's also a quick and easy way to help your body recover, it can help those sore muscles and can even help reduce your risk for injury.



3.  Replace Fluids and Eat Recovery Foods
You generally deplete your energy and lose quite a bit of fluid when you workout due to sweating. Replacing those fluids such as with electrolytes or preferably water is a great way to help your body recover. Eating foods high in protein within an hour of working out can help to repair tissues and get you ready for your next workout challenge.

4. PROcure Epsom Salt Rub

I used to love soaking in the tub in Epsom Salts, something that my parents taught me years ago. We always kept Epsom Salts on hand for sore and aching muscles, but using PROcure Epsom Salt Rub is so much easier. I get the same relief without actually getting into the tub.


What I love about the PROcure brand is that they don't contain any ingredients that leave me scratching my head. They have no harsh chemicals and the PROcure Epsom Salt Rub actually contains Aloe Vera which is an ingredient that I have personally used for years while living in the Caribbean. The PROcure products that I have personally used have all worked extremely well and FAST! If you suffer from sore muscles and you're looking for fast relief, consider using the PROcure Epsom Salt Rub.

PROcure Epsom Salt Rub is available for purchase at Walmart, Amazon, Walgreens and Rite Aid, and to get you started here's a PROcure product coupon just for you!

  20. There aren't many things better than a relaxing bath after a hard work out! I most always add epsom salt to my water but I may skip that now and use this afterwards!

  32. I'm a former division I athlete and I can definitely attest to the importance of stretching and replenishing your body of everything it lost during a workout and amping up on those proteins! A lot of my teammates swore by episom salt baths, too.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ohh.. Cassidy LOVES this. It's a great product. My sister is a good trainer so I usually fuel her with questions because recovery is as new to me as working out itself!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm glad you've found something that helps you recover from your workout. I don't enjoy it much either but I try to walk as much as the weather allows and I do enjoy doing barre!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you for this post. I am thinking of getting back into a routine exercise program and since I have not been physically active, I know it is going to hurt once I start again. I got to get myself some PROCure before I start exercising again.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oddly the only part I like about working out is how sore I feel afterwards because it makes me feel accomplished. But that salt rub looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This definitely sounds like a product that is right up my alley. I would definitely need to recover after working out - ha ha!

  39. That epsom salt rub looks amazing! I love using epsom salt for so many things, and this seems like a really wonderful option for after working out!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think this would be good for my son's achy muscles after he comes home from sports practice. He tends to overdo his work out sometimes and leaves him stiff and achy. Thanks for the review. I will be getting a tube of the PROcure Epsom Salt Rub.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  45. This looks like a great product! Although I'm not really working out right now, so much has me sore this month. The holidays somehow adds some physical strains with hanging holiday lights, long shopping hours and so much more! I'll definitely check this product out for my husband and I!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh I would love this! My bath is broken so I can never take a bath with epsom salts, which really help sore muscles! I am looking for this!

    ReplyDelete
  47. As much as I love taking baths especially with Epsom Salt, sometimes I'm just to tired to put the bath together. I love idea of getting the same results with a rub. Definitely going to pick this up next time I'm at the store.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've heard of epson salt bath but not a massage rub. It sounds like a interesting product that I need after a workout.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I need to check this out because I love epsom salt baths after working out but I hate keeping the bulky bags of salts stocked, they take up so much room in my cabinets.
