The other big slice of the recovery pie involves relieving muscle soreness and re-energizing your body. Massage, ice baths, sauna, foam rolling, and cryotherapy are some of the tools you can use post-workout to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and help speed up recovery so you can attack your next workout with intensity. This kind of activity was known to originate from the stone-lifting traditions of Ancient Egypt and Greece. But nowadays, there are competitions for bodybuilders. In competition bodybuilding, participants show their developed muscular build through their own posing routines and specific poses required at the competition. They are judged based on muscularity, conditioning, and symmetry.
