Gold's Gym Names Restorative Fitness 2020's Top Fitness Trend
Restorative fitness will bring a welcome balance to gymgoers who dove headfirst into 2019's HIIT (high-intensity interval training) trend and are currently experiencing burnout and overtraining injuries. Restorative fitness centers on the idea that the body goes through a cycle of stress and recovery, and high-intensity workouts aren't effective when the body is stressed, as from an intense workout. New data suggests that varying workout intensity to include low, moderate and high, rather than aiming for maximum effort every time, makes all exercise more effective. Using heart rate variability (HRV), which is the time between heartbeats, and elements such as sleep, nutrition and physical exertion, people can determine where they are in the recovery cycle and what level of workout will most benefit their body. Wearables that can now combine HRV and other recovery variables to calculate a "recovery score" will let users know at a glance what type of workout they should do.Lower-intensity yoga and Pilates classes will aid in a restorative regimen. They can be combined with recovery techniques including cryotherapy, sauna, compression and percussion therapy to prepare the body for a more intense workout.
