I also have a good heating device for warming up my body before I play ball
I’ve done many different hobbies in the past. At one time it was drumming, then it changed to cycling road bikes with my friends in college. I got into beach volleyball when I was 25 years old and it stuck with me all the way up until now at the age of 54. My body doesn’t jump as high as it did and I can’t hit as hard anymore because of a torn rotator cuff I got about 8 years ago. I didn’t know it at the time but that injury would forever change the way I played. I learned that after playing you need to become your own cooling technician, using ice to remove any swelling of the joints. The body gets inflamed from overuse and cooling down the body with some kind of cooling equipment such as an ice bath is the best thing you can do for it. I’ve been playing for almost 30 years and discovered that I don’t need to take all of the pain medications if I learn the right methods of recovery. I like to program my smart thermostat to keep my room cool at night when it’s hot so I have a good night of rest. Our body does most of its healing and recovery when it is at rest during the night. I also have a good heating device for warming up my body before I play ball. I also had to have my heating repaired in my house because it seemed to be working inefficiently. I have learned a lot from many years of injuries I guess.
