The two main types of methods used widely today, i.e., classical and reflex zone massage originate from massage techniques used in antiquity. Today's sports massage is fundamentally composed of five basic techniques, namely: vibration, stroking, kneading, rubbing and percussion, the combination of which form the massage programme.
This is a topic we hear very little about. After an evening jog, we return home or to the car, get in and that's the end of training. Exhausted muscles considerably contract by the end of training, which is why they need to be stretched for these muscles to regenerate faster, reduce their fragility and last, but not least to prepare them for the next training.
If you happen to decide from one day to the next that sports is missing from your life and you urgently intend to change this, you have made one of the best decisions in your life. However, you need to know that although you have definitely committed yourself, your muscles are by no way ready to take the strain.
