ANNA'S TABLE: REPAIR + RECOVER
HOW TO REFUEL AFTER YOUR FLYKICK SESSION
So you’ve signed up for the October challenge. There are a raft of prizes on the line. It’s getting serious. We want to see you succeed, so we’ve put together a quick list of tips to help you make it through those burpees over the next in four weeks… ready, you got this!
1. SPACE YOUR CLASSES OUT
Don’t be a hero! Allow for rest days. You have four full weeks to get your best score, so there’s no need to try and do them all in one go – build up your score each class and allow your body to recover between sessions. If you have time, get on the foam roller, head to a yoga class and do some stretching at home. Your body will thank you!
2. UP YOUR NUTRITION GAME
Another way to help your body to recover in time for the next session is to make sure you’re eating well. As well as getting the right fuel into your body before a session, what you eat after your session also has a huge impact on how efficiently your muscles will repair and recover. Confused about nutrition? Check out our previous blog posts on how to eat before and after a Flykick session.
3. DON'T SLACK ON THE STRETCHES
We love a good stretch here at Flykick. While we do dedicate a full nine minutes to stretching and mobility during the class, only you know how well it’s working for you. During this section, ensure you’re feeling the stretch every time rather than just fully resting. This is going to prime your muscles perfectly for the bag rounds, making it far less likely for niggles to occur and hold you back from your next session.
4. BRING YOUR MATES
Even the most self-motivated people need a little helping hand sometimes. Get your mates involved. Almost anything seems like more fun if there’s a social side to it. Plus, you’re more competitive wit a familiar face keeping count too! Don’t forget that we have a referral scheme!
5. PLAN AHEAD
Booking your sessions in advance not only secures your spot, it also means you have to be organised for the week ahead. The benefit of this is that you’re less likely to have other plans come up and get in the way. Knowing when you’re coming to class also means it’s more likely that you’ll be mentally ready, at your peak and in the zone.
