Use Recovery Time To Get Stronger to Jump Higher

  1. 1. Use Recovery Time To Get Stronger to Jump Higher
  2. 2. When we are training hard trying to better our jumpingstrength and performance we need to think aboutrecovery time.Its this recovery time that we will actually gain from theresults of our training.Doing squats and bench presses will tear down ourmuscles and the recovery time will build them backstronger than before.
  3. 3. If we do not take advantage of rest so we can rebuild,we may continue to progress at getting stronger forsome time then eventually will reach a point of noreturns.Many people, when they stop making progress in theirstrength gains will try to do even more to get past theirsticking point.
  4. 4. Mostly what really needs to be done is cut back a littleso the body or muscles can have time to rebuild.Your body may be breaking down faster than it canrepair.Sometimes just cutting back on workout intensity or thenumber of reps is all that is needed to start making gainsagain.Or you may need to take a day or two off during theweek.
  5. 5. There is a thing called systemic fatigue which is when yourbody is broken down like from heavy weight lifting and nowyour brain is aware of it.You can feel run down and moody with a lack of energy.It can take about 48 hours to recover from systemic fatigue.You can generally gauge if you have recovered fromsystemic fatigue say after a weeks rest you are able to do thesame bench press weight you could do before.If you can only do less your body may still be fatigued.
