Five-Minute Recovery Class


In this Five-Minute Recovery Class, Fitness Expert Gideon Akande takes you through his go-to recovery routine featuring some of his favorite products. Taking time to recover after a workout is essential because it indicates to your muscles that it's time to relax and release any tension that came from exercise. For Gideon, that means using his go-to foam roller from Hyperice, strapping on his Normatec compression boots, and drinking a scoop of his favorite recovery supplement.

The Vyper 2.0 from Hyperice is a strong, sleek, and durable vibrating foam roller, and it's the first step in Gideon's recovery routine because it's a great tool for relieving sore muscles. It helps him target specific points of tension throughout his body. If you don't have a Vyper 2.0, don't worry! You can follow along with your favorite foam roller. After a few upper body stretches, Gideon's next step is using his Normatec Compression Boots. Now, these boots are definitely next level; Normatec is like the best massage of your life. It’s proven to help with lymphatic drainage, and decrease pain and soreness. It uses dynamic air compression to create a restorative massage that helps you feel refreshed faster. The Normatec Compression Boots are a good investment for anyone who works out regularly or feels constant tension and soreness in their legs. You can get a more in-depth guide to using the Normatec Compression Boots here.

Throughout his recovery routine, Gideon makes sure he can get a few sips in of his Vital Proteins Vital Performance Recover Supplement. It provides the hydration he needs to keep him going while giving his muscles the vitamins they need to stay strong. No matter how you choose to stay hydrated, you want to make sure you're drinking water before, during, and after your workout. This class is perfect for anyone who wants to take their recovery time to the next level without having to give up a lot of time. You can find Gideon's reviews for his go-to recovery tools here.
