The number one mistake people make when working towards their riding goals is failing to recover properly. Believe it or not, proper recover is just as important as crushing your training sessions. That's why in this episode of Dailed Health, I share the practical strategies I personally utilize for optimizing my recovery that you can easily implement into your training program. I want to put a large emphasis on the "practical" because it's easy to find a recovery modality on google, but it's not as easy to actually apply it in your life. The strategies I discuss are all practical, low-cost, and highly effective.
