Default recovery

what do you guys do to recover after a gnarly of riding. And i dont mean stuff like kicking back and enjoying a few beers but shit like an ice bath or icyhot. And also how effective is it when you wake up the next day.After a normal day of riding i feel awesome at night but i wake and i feel like every one of my muscles are being stabbed.

I am a big believer in compression. It's very popular in endurance sports circles but not so much in snowboarding. I used to do cold water soaks but some days the thought of dipping into an icy bath just hurts too much. In the summer after a long trail run or mtb ride I might still do a cold soak, but then it's 90F out rather than 20F.

compression recovery research

stretch before and after. take protein. once you start going more often your body starts getting used to it.

a light cardio workout the day after works great. I usually go to the gym and get on the treadmill and do a steady jog for around 20-30 minutes. It gets the blood flowing and reduces the lactic acid build up.

Also, taking a protien shake after riding is good to help your muscles recover during sleep.

Some people (myself included) think that the soreness is a great thing, because it means your legs got a good workout and are getting stronger.

I hear that. I relish the soreness. It lets me know I did something. It's the cherry on top.

Hot tub with a few beers and a ice cold bong does wonders. Or just a hot hub is fine too. Or a hot shower or bath if there is no hot tub. And also drink plenty of water, if I'm also drinking alcohol an extra glass of H2O for each drink should counter any dehydration.
But like others said snowboard everyday for a few weeks and your body doesn't really need any recovery time.

Ice and I use a product called BioFreeze, mostly Homeopathic stuff and some OTC pain relievers.



Works for me
