There’s no denying what Crossfit can do for you and your overall health if you do it with any sort of consistency.
If you’re like most of us, you do Crossfit 3-5 times per week… and you love the way it makes you look and feel.
Crossfitters will tell you that they pay good money every month to get their ass kicked… yet they keep showing up again day after day.
Because it’s a cult! (lol, inside Crossfit joke 🤣)
All kidding aside… people love to get real coaching in the classes, they can just show up and not think about what to do, and there’s a truth to enjoying the ‘suffer’ with their friends.
On the flip side, there’s a lack of coaching or training with one of the most important parts of Crossfit… body recovery.
Here’s some simple advice to take your body recovery to the next level, so you can recover faster and get back to your next wod!
Body recovery doesn’t have to be complicated if you just do a few things for a few minutes per day.
Cool down and stretch immediately after your wod
After you pick you pick yourself off the floor and start breathing ‘normal’ again, immediately go for a cool down walk, jump on the rower or get on the assault bike.
Do this for just a few minutes. Don’t go faster than a slow pace, as the goal is to just keep moving.
This will do wonders for your body.
Then spend some time stretching to release your tension and start the healing process of what you just put your body through.
Post workout meal
This is where your protein shake comes in. You’ve probably seen a ton of people grabbing their shakers and attacking it. There’s a reason for it.
Getting your body the right nutrients in the right amount of time will help start the recovery process.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
We’re not talking the beer and wine type hydration, which we’re definitely not against. We’re talking water here.
Replenish your body with fluids to help flush out the toxins and lactic acid build up in your body and your newly damaged muscles.
Get some sleep
‘Go till you puke or die!’ is great in theory, but you’ll eventually do both way sooner than you should if you don’t get some sleep and allow your body to recover.
In fact, your body heals the most while asleep, so go find your bed, pull back the covers and jump right in.
The Next Level
While the basics will get you started, this is where you turn up the volume and really rock out… or go RX+!
We are blessed to live in a time where we have the technology and knowledge to help improve our bodies in ways we couldn’t imagine before.
Think about how powerful supplements are to the athletic community. Think about how much supplements have improved performance (legal of course!), and how much science is going into these supplements.
It’s mind blowing!
Well.. what if we incorporated the ultimate supplement into our body recovery? Do you think that would make a difference?
We think so…
