We constantly hear it from our trainers and therapists. “Recovery is the most important aspect of a workout”.
This is true, however did you know that what makes recovery effective is the specificity of our recovery program. That means, that yes, there is actually a wrong way to recover.
So let’s talk foot recovery.
With our feet carrying the weight of our daily movements, if any area of our body deserves a little TCL it is them.
Are you currently recovering your feet?
If so, how are you recovering your feet?
If you are looking to upgrade your foot recovery game or to start an easy and effective foot recovery program – we got you covered!
Your Foolproof Foot Recovery Program
We recommend the following three steps to performed daily, ideally at the end of a long workout or end of the day.
Step 1 – 5 Point Neuro Ball Release
The below 5 points on the foot correlate to certain muscles and tendons that insert and cross the bottom of the foot. By hitting these 5 points in a pin-point pressure release you are sure to feel that ideal foot relaxation and letting go of foot
Founder’s Tip! Avoid rolling the bottom of the foot to prevent a guarding response. Instead stand on the Neuro Ball dome or RAD Micro for 30 seconds on each point.
Step 2 – Stretch Toes with Naboso Splay
We think of toe spacers as something only for those with hammertoes and bunions however this is not true. All of us can benefit from stretching the small muscles at the front of the foot.
Founder’s Fact! The ligaments that run under and between the joints of our toes are actually connected to your plantar fascia. This means Naboso Splay is also a plantar fascia stretch!
Step 3 – Improve Circulation with Activation Insoles
Yes, we love barefoot but if you are looking for the complete foot recovery program, we need to bring in just a little more textured stimulation to the feet. We recommend at least 30 minutes additional of walking around with the Activation Insoles.
I personally walk around in my slippers with the Activation Insoles while getting ready for dinner and playing with my daughter. After 30 minutes I’m back to being barefoot!
Founder’s Tip! If you instead prefer to use a Standing Mat in your kitchen or bathroom, this is also a great way to get that additional stimulation when cooking or doing dishes.
The final step to getting the best results with our Foolproof Foot Recovery Program is consistency. The best results are seen if the above 3 steps are done every single day!
Can you do it more than just at the end of the day?
This is definitely one area where more can be better.
