Post-Game Routine

After your game be sure you drink more water. Ideally you eat protein within 30 min. so your body has material to repair your muscles. A protein shake would be ideal. Resting after each game gets you ready for the next one. Especially when you have a few hours in between. Eat a good meal and rest while it digests.

At the end of the day here is a bath recipe to help your very sore muscles:

2 cups of Epsom salts
¼ cup of sea salt
2 cups of baking soda
Soak and then rinse the salt off and drink more water.
We lose 2 cups of water just breathing at night.

Get a good night’s sleep and you’ll be ready for your next day of games with a lot less soreness in your body.
