When your workout contains intensive reactive strength methods at the main part (muscle performance that results in a great push within the enlargement-shortening cycle) or small side games with small arithmetic correlations 3v3 2v2 1v1 (increased and violent eccentric muscle contractions), then you create a muscular injury from training process (muscle fiber breakdown).
The forces being developed are massive (they can reach up to 5 times the athlete's body weight) where muscles, tendons set and joints are called to cope. If at the end of the training you use static stretches in the recovery proccess for your players, there is a risk of increased phenomenon and swelling of the injured tissue.
Follow the following demo program after the training to speed up your players' recovery:
- Slow tempo jog across the pitch x 4 repetitions
- Gentle hip-knee mobility exercises across the pitch x 4 repetitions
- Discharge low back-torso with fitball help
- Consumption of a 2: 1 or 3: 1 carbohydrate-protein restorative beverage
