Hydrate As Soon As You Wake Up

Most people reach for a cup of coffee or hot tea first thing in the morning. While the intake of caffeine certainly helps with feeling alert, the first thing we all should drink in the morning is water. It makes sense if you think about it. You just spent six to eight hours sleeping. That is six to eight hours without a sip of water. This means that when you wake up, you are on the verge of dehydration. Instead of sipping a cup of java first thing in the morning, try drinking two glasses of water.

Training Harder? Sleep Longer

If you are increasing the duration and/or intensity of your training sessions, you also need to increase your rest time. After arduous and demanding workouts, your body will need more rest. Consider sleeping an hour longer or incorporating afternoon naps into your schedule.

Consider Group Training

If you train alone, it is easy to fall into a rut or skip training all together because you only have to answer to yourself. If you decide to train with a group, you will suddenly have new sources of motivation. Your group members will help you stay accountable with your goals because you have committed to training alongside them. Group training also adds a social aspect to your workouts, which can make them feel more fun and less dull.

Try Post-Workout Massage

Massage is a great way to relieve post-workout tightness and soreness and while scheduling a professional massage after every workout is impractical, you can achieve similar results with personal massage tools. Foam rollers are used by athletes of all kinds for relieving tension after a vigorous training session.
