1. Gulp down water!

Drink loads and loads of water after the whole exertion. This is because your body has shred out all the water in your body through sweat and you would be dehydrated if there is no proper intake of water or glucose. Make sure to not push down your energy level to the ground strike.

4. Mellow down last 5 minutes!

Make sure when you are about to complete your workout session, make your pace slow for the last five minutes. This helps to avoid the immediate panting and tiredness, cooling down your body.

5. Stretch few nerves!

After a heavy cardio session and a good treadmill run, one needs to stretch their legs and arms to loosen up a bit. This doesn’t mean you cause yourself more pain. Make sure to stretch to a point where you don’t feel any pain. This stretching session is important for the tightness of the body due to the workout to make it loose and flexible.
