8 Things to Do After a Volleyball Tournament

After my volleyball tournament over the weekend, I realized that I have developed a pretty sweet post-tournament recovery regimen for myself. The night immediately following my tournament was not met with agony, heavy eyelids, or crawling from my bed to the bathroom -- unlike previous tournaments. Instead of regretting playing volleyball all day, I had a lovely date night in DC with my boyfriend. It was great!

Please enjoy this infographic I have put together for those who are interested in learning more about my little recovery routine. While it is my post volleyball tournament routine, it doesn't mean that it is explicitly for volleyball players. In fact, this route is pretty much the exact same thing I did after running my first half marathon less than two months ago.

I must note that, while I have nearly a decade of coaching experience (including my IMPACT certification), I am not a doctor. You should totally make sure that you consult with your doctor on any over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication you may be interested in trying.

Do you have a routine to help speed up recovery and give your muscles a little extra love after a grueling competition or workout? Please share it in the comments!

In addition to the 8 things below, make sure you stay hydrated, friends! Best of luck to all of my fellow volleyball players during the USAV season!
