“Regeneration in Training” While some are still struggling to make the jogging shoes once a week or throw the sportswear over a few weights, many others are so heavily gripped by the urge that they do not want to leave the gym.
What is still a blessing for the personal trainer can become a problem for some clients in the long term. Because when our clients have generated so much motivation in themselves, that one has only to control the whole thing correctly, the task of the personal trainer is a lot easier. However, overloading must be avoided at all costs.
I have had the experience that Regeneration in Training is generally underestimated
It may be the case that athletes develop so much ambition/desire/commitment that they want to do 5x-7x a week for sports, but one sees as a personal trainer often confronted with the question, which is actually the right measure.
Of course, this always depends on the dose, in what intensity I train and what I do at all. I would like to focus on the question: “What can I do for optimum regeneration?” And “Is it the same as regenerating?”
Pausing means in the context of physical work/movement that I set this work/movement completely or for the most part. So if I do not move the body parts that I used before in the training. This may mean, for example, that on Sunday I look at the latest episode of my favorite stanza and spend the rest of the day in bed. A popular way to spend the rainy days.
But this form of “non-moving” really is effective and helps my body to process the workout optimally and restore the performance or increase the output level. It is certainly part of the regeneration of the performance, but only the tip of the iceberg.
What sort of restoration should I choose to get the best out of it?
Basically, pausing by definition is somewhat passive, while recreating is something active. For me, the recovery is not about waiting until a certain state (the recovered body) has stopped again, but I look for ways I can use to restore this condition more quickly.
What are the possibilities for actively supporting the regeneration of the body?
- Conscious diet with fresh and healthy ingredients
- Slight movement/training of the claimed body region
- Mental recovery
- Sufficient sleep
- Do something good!
I would like to clarify why “Sufficient sleep” and “Pausing” appear in the list, as both are obviously passive forms. Pausing is not bad per se. However, seeing it as the sole form of restoring performance is, in my opinion, incomplete.
Not all forms of recovery aim to bring about a purely physical recovery. The mental part, in other words, to have a free head, is a very decisive factor. Stress has a great impact on the sense of well-being and so it is also the other way round. A spirit that is calm in itself has a positive effect on the body. I like to ask myself several times a week the question, whether one has already done something good.
It is possible to actively support the regeneration in training after a hard training session and you should not underestimate these factors. In a good training, it is not only about the (training) unit itself, but also the meaningful linking of different factors apart from the training and a healthy balance between them such as rest, diet, and mental health factors a lot of personal trainers do not even consider.
