RECOVERY

WHAT IS RECOVERY?

Many Athletes take their recovery time for granted and only realise its importance when it’s too late. At CAP we teach and educate all of our Athletes how to recover and heal their body properly between sessions or leading up to a big game or trial. This will be a balance of exercises and the food they are eating before and after sessions.

Understanding how to balance your training and everyday activities is the key to how an Athlete can help achieve top performance and health. This is why Recovery is so important and something we encourage and remind our Athletes to take seriously. Recovery is included in some way in each of other three pillars.

MOVEMENT: Teaching our Athletes how to stretch and do proper active recovery after a long game or tournament is essential. Too many Athletes start off the season with small injuries which could have been easily fixed with proper recovery but, ignored the signs and usually results in serious injuries in the long terms. Proper recovery is essential for all Athletes in order to allow their body and muscles to rebuild and grow.

MINDSET: Recovery in this pillar is taking the time out to allow your brain and mind to refocus to encourage positive moods and motivation. This can be achieved through Yoga, Meditations, Sleep or even a day out with family and friends to do nothing related to sports.

NUTRITION: Studies have found that Athletes that lack in sleep tend to overeat and consume more fast food and junk food. This results in lack of energy, concentration and weight gain overtime which will result in poor performance.
