This Scientific technique improves your performance at the gym by 80 percent more!!!

Most athletes know, that getting enough rest after exercise is crucial to high-level performance, but many athletes still overtrain, get fatigued and feel guilty on their day off. Science says, The body repairs and strengthens itself in the time between workouts. Continuous training can actually weaken the strongest athletes. This has been noticed in our Indian athletes from time to time as the coaches don’t give enough time to rest and heal; But focus on training hard only.

Planning recovery time into any training program is important because this is the time that the body recuperates from the stress of constant pushing it to the limits. Rest and recovery also allows the body to replenish energy stores. It also repairs damaged tissues. Exercise or any other physical work changes the body such; as muscle tissue breakdown and the depletion of energy stores (muscle glycogen) as well as fluid loss.

Recovery time allows muscle glycogen stores to be replenished and also allows tissue repair to occur. Without sufficient time to repair, the body will continue to breakdown from intense exercise. Symptoms of overtraining and central nervous system fatigue often occur from a lack of recovery time. Signs of overtraining include a feeling of general lack towards zest of life, staleness, depression, decreased sports performance, and increased risk of injury, as well.

Rest days are absolutely important to sports and athletic performance for a variety of reasons. Some are physiological while some are psychological. Rest is necessary so that the muscles can repair, rebuild, and strengthen. For recreational athletes and Gym Rats, building in rest days can help maintain a better balance between home, work, and fitness.

In the worst-case scenario, too few rest and recovery days can lead to overtraining. This is a very difficult condition to recover from.

Floatation tank sessions have shown to improve athletic performance across a wide range of activities. The activities include: tennis, gymnastics, bowling, rifle shooting, football, golf, soccer, sailing, rugby, basketball throws or dart-throwing, Powerlifting, Cross training, Functional training to name but a few.

Floating in a weightless state of zero gravity and immersed in Epsom salts is the most effective recovery mode for athletes and commoners who need to keep their workouts and recovery safe and to go back to their next routine stress, Anxiety and pain-free. Combined with a workable diet plan and an exercise routine to your abilities, recovery in the form of floatation tanks or sensory deprivation tanks will ensure that your muscles and your nervous system are up to the task at hand.

Floatation tank technique or REST (Reduced environmental sensory input technique)consists of floating in 750 Kg’s of epsom salt and 2000 Litres of water, where the sensory inputs on the brain are reduced significantly. Sensory input when reduced from the environment have immense benefits from its use.

Floating in Float pods/ float rooms maximise the benefits of physical training in just one Hour, compared to the actual growth and strengthening the muscles take place during relaxation, which usually 30-40 hours after the exercise. The deep relaxation enhances blood circulation and the growth of the muscle tissue. The 750 Kg ofMagnesium in floatation tanks can make you recover from injuries. it also allows the muscles to become supple and flexible via building collagen in the muscle tissue.

Dr Peter Suedfeld from University of British Columbia in Vancouver measured the performance of basketball players a day before and after a single session of floating (plus visualisation techniques). The experiment revealed 37% improvement in free throws comparing to a control group! Thats a huge change!

Many sportsmen nowadays use floatation tank sessions to rest, recuperate and practice visualisation techniques to get a winning edge over the competition.

Floatation tank therapy enhances rehab and recovery from sport injuries. Floatation removes the pain of sore muscles and joints. The therapy improves blood circulation that can accelerate healing. It helps to reduce pain through the production of endorphins, which are naturally released in zero gravity environment of a floatation tank.

When B. Dennis, a young and promising cyclist fell from a cliff and broke his femur during the US Tour DuPont road race in 1994, doctors gave him little chances of full recovery. The athlete then used floating tanks three times a week. After 7 weeks of the therapy he won gold and with his teammates beat the Australian record in the 100 km team time trial!

In such a relaxed state your body will have the chance to restore its natural powers of self awareness and healing. The floatation tank also helps speed up the clearing of lactic acid build up and the recovery process from extensive training, which in turn allows you to perform at your peak and be less prone to injuries from overtraining.

A majority of sports injuries are related to muscular tension and can be prevented by relaxation.
