Caro thanks for bringing this up! I am also curious about how to maintain my aging body as I continue to pursue aerials. At 54 I am really noticing recovery time for me is waaaay longer than it used to be. I normally wake up in pain the day after a training session. As much as I would like to train every other day I feel like my body needs/wants more breaks. Having been a dancer most of my life I am used to feeling the “good” aches and pains (lactic acid build up high LOL) after hard physical exercise . I think the key might be cool downs and better longer warm ups. And Epsom salts. And Chiro. LOL!
