Men's Health (UK) - - Maximise Your Downtime -

SHOUL­DER SAL­VA­TION

Tight shoul­der mus­cles are in­evitable in the mod­ern world, but they’re not in­cur­able. The unique banded move­ment that this sys­tem utilises both in­creases your mo­bil­ity be­fore work­outs and strength­ens in­jury-prone ar­eas, such as your ro­ta­tor cuffs and scapu­las. Crossover Sym­me­try In­di­vid­ual Pack­age £149 uk.crossover­sym­me­try.com

DAM­AGE LIM­I­TA­TION

These are not your av­er­age leg­gings. Re­duce ex­er­cise-in­duced in­flam­ma­tion with com­pres­sion tights that live up to the name. Con­strict­ing your mus­cles lim­its the sore­ness felt hours af­ter train­ing by help­ing to re­move the ache-caus­ing enzyme re­leased by a stren­u­ous work­out. A great ex­cuse to stay in work­out gear. 2XU Power Re­cov­ery Com­pres­sion Tights £ 110 2xu.com

DESK MAIN­TE­NANCE

A day at the of­fice is no ex­cuse to ne­glect your body work. Com­pact and con­ve­nient, rolling this un­der­foot while an­swer­ing your emails will in­crease cir­cu­la­tion and com­bat stress, thanks to the way your foot con­trols the align­ment of the rest of your body. Trig­ger Point Nano Foot Roller £23 wig­gle.co.uk

STRETCH AND DE-STRESS

Poor range of mo­tion in the gym is an early warn­ing sign that your move­ment needs a fresh ap­proach. Whether you do it first thing, be­fore bed or af­ter train­ing, fol­low the habits of top ath­letes by per­form­ing daily stretch­ing rou­tines that take only 20 min­utes. ROMWOD Ath­lete Plan £10 per month romwod.com

CARB FIX

A post-work­out serv­ing of this macro blend will set you up for faster re­cov­ery and in­creased en­ergy lev­els for the rest of the day. It con­tains nat­u­ral sources of nu­tri­tion, from honey to sweet potato pow­der, and gives your mus­cles all they need to re­pair and grow.
