Rob Riches on Active Recovery & the Travel Roller
What are you doing between sets during your workout? Staring at the mirror? Grabbing a drink? Being a chatty Cathy?
It that’s the case, maybe it’s time to re-think your recovery period, both between sets and between exercises. Many studies, including this one by the Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine show active recovery is better for you than just zoning out in front of the mirror.
Active recovery could mean light cardio, stretching or Travel Rolling! In this video Rob Riches, a world champion fitness model who has appeared on magazine covers such as Fitness & Health and Maximum Fitness, uses the Travel Roller for a little active recovery. One look at Rob’s physique is enough to convince me to start getting my butt in gear during my rest period!
