How to choose the best training and recovery products

Choosing which topical analgesic and joint support products to use before, during and after training, can often be more exhausting than the training itself!

Do you need heating or cooling products? Do you need joint support, relief from inflammation or to eliminate lactic acid build-up? And what order do you use them in?

To eliminate some of the confusion and exhaustion from your training, body and muscle expert and official massage therapist for the USA Eagles Rugby team, Daliah Hurwitz, give us some valuable advice.

 ‘Before you start your exercising it always helps to use a product that can help you to effectively warm your muscles up, this will help to stimulate nerve receptors and strengthening the muscles before exercise begins,’ explains Daliah.

‘If you have any muscular or joint issues, you can also use a joint spray or rub before starting to help promote joint and cartilage health.

‘If there is one product, I tell everyone to use either before or during, and especially after training, it’s Magnesium. Magnesium is crucial for over 300 chemical reactions in the body! Besides promoting energy production and bone and muscle health, it also aids in mental clarity. It has been found that transdermal absorption of magnesium is far more effective than taking a magnesium supplement as it can bypass the digestion system and be fully absorbed into the body through the skin. Before and during exercise if you can apply a Magnesium spray or gel to your body, this will help you through the training, and afterwards, if you can either soak in a magnesium bath or once again apply more cream or gel this will help tremendously in your recovery process.’
