Training is not enough to reach your maximum sports level. Being fundamental to perform a good training, there are also a number of other factors that are basic to increase your performance, and that fall under the term Invisible Training. We talk about aspects such as nutrition, sports supplementation (when necessary), physical care such as massages and, above all, rest.
After intense sports activity the body needs to recover and prepare again for the next effort. It is necessary to recharge the energy deposits and regenerate the muscles and tissues that may have been damaged during training. In fact, the improvement in our physical form does not come at the time of training, but with the overcompensation that occurs in the body when we rest behind it. It is the sequence “stimulus-fatigue-rest and overcompensation” that improves our fitness… as long as we rest properly. If you crush yourself to train and not rest well, not only will you not progress, as you feel fatigued, but you can compromise your health. Therefore, if a good night’s sleep is important for anyone, for sportsmen and sportswomen who demand more from their bodies, it is even more important.
