HOW WE DO IT

  1. Dynamic Warm-Up: Sessions begin with a dynamic warm-up routine to increase blood flow, elevate heart rate, and prepare the body for the recovery exercises ahead.

  2. Stretching and Flexibility Exercises: Athletes engage in guided stretching exercises targeting major muscle groups to improve flexibility, alleviate muscle tension, and enhance joint mobility.

  3. Foam Rolling and Self-Myofascial Release: Athletes use foam rollers, massage balls, or other tools to perform self-myofascial release techniques, targeting tight muscles and fascia to reduce muscle soreness and improve tissue quality.

  4. Recovery Modalities: Various recovery modalities may be incorporated, such as ice baths, contrast therapy (alternating hot and cold treatments), compression therapy, or therapeutic massages, to facilitate muscle repair, reduce inflammation, and aid in overall recovery.

  5. Active Recovery Exercises: Low-intensity exercises, such as light jogging, swimming, or cycling, may be included to promote active recovery, increase blood circulation, and help flush out metabolic waste products from the muscles.

  6. Breathing and Relaxation Techniques: Sessions often incorporate breathing exercises and relaxation techniques, such as guided meditation or deep breathing exercises, to promote mental and emotional relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being.

  7. Group Support and Motivation: Group sport recovery sessions foster a supportive environment where athletes can connect, share experiences, and encourage each other, providing a sense of camaraderie and motivation during the recovery process.

  8. Education and Guidance: Coaches may provide educational content on topics like proper nutrition, hydration strategies, sleep optimization, and injury prevention, empowering athletes with knowledge and strategies to support their recovery outside of the sessions.

  9. Cool-Down and Reflection: Sessions typically conclude with a cool-down period, incorporating gentle movements and stretching to gradually bring the heart rate down. Athletes may also have time for reflection, goal setting, or journaling to enhance self-awareness and mental focus.

The content and duration of group sport recovery sessions can vary based on the specific goals, needs, and preferences of the group and coach.
