Recovery is one of the most important aspects of sports performance. At the forefront of correct recovery is sleep, hydration and nutrition. Don’t let anyone tell you that any recovery method is more important than those. But if you are looking to optimise recovery, then the 1% improvements are needed. This is where recovery creams, muscle guns, recovery boots, etc… Come in.
Premax Skin care
The skin is the biggest Organ in the body and plays a crucial role in temperature regulation. This is a vital aspect of performance. Skin can also get annoying where blisters occur or chaffing. The amount of times I’ve been uncomfortable in a race or a run because of Irritated skin, is uncountable at this point. This especially applies to the longer distance runners and anyone doing an Ultra marathon or a mixed terrain race. Skincare is a must.
Premax isn’t your typical Skincare company. They specialise in skincare for sports as the founder Randall Cooper discovered when giving treatments prior to Premax, athletes found creams and lotions to be greasy and pore-clogging which didn’t allow the skin to breathe and therefore hindering performance. Having used Premax first hand, in a variety of weather conditions, all their products are a refreshing feeling and are now included within my daily training. Whether that’s the warm up cream for the early morning runs, or the Anti-friction balm to prevent blisters. (Mainly caused by the Vaporfly’s).
