Rebound Training is a targeted way to help your body shift into the the recovery state. This is where the gains of fitness are made.
This template was designed to give you an overview of what a Rebound Training workout looks like and how to use it within your training program.
Rebound Training will:
- Increase blood flow throughout the body to promote tissue repair
- Cause a spike in anabolic hormones that increase protein synthesis and recovery
- Shift the body into the recovery state and accelerate results
2 - Recovery Zone Training
Recovery zone training is an incredibly effective way to help jump start your recovery by increasing blood flow and circulation, without causing additional stress on the body. The key to this is selecting the right intensity (the recovery zone) and choosing low impact exercises.
4 - Recovery Cool Down
Although it's often forgotten, the cool down is just as important as the warm up. This is because it helps return the body back to its normal resting state and jump start recovery.
The goal of the cool down should be to bring your heart rate down below 100bpm and help turn on the parasympathetic nervous system. This is the branch of the nervous system that's responsible for recovery and it can be stimulated by going through a specific cool down process.
