Get yourself back in shape for your next workout faster with these tips
Top-up with cinnamon:

Half a teaspoon twice a day in coffee reduces muscle inflammation.

Have a Brazilian:

Tea, that is. It reduces pain and swelling like ibuprofen. Drink 2-3 cups the day before a workout for faster recovery
Newcastle University

Go hot and cold:

Take your muscles from one limit to the other to enhance your recovery. Press an ice pack against your sore muscle for a minute, then submerge it in hot water for a minute. Alternate 12 times to be ready for your next muscle-blast.

Australian Institute of Sport

Avoid the sauna:

It may be relaxing, but making your way to the hot room straight after resistance or weight training can impair your performance for days after.

Mark Verstegen, fitness author

Drink tea:

A compound in your cuppa triggers insulin secretion, which lowers the amount of sugar in red blood cells. Sip a cup of black tea after your workout to reduce blood pressure by more than 40%.
