Welcome back! I’m posting this a few hours later than normal because of my inability to stay awake. Which conveniently, is the perfect segue for today’s topic. This week we’re going to talk about recovery, the very thing my body decided I needed. We’ve all been told how important sleep is but I don’t think it’s talked about enough. There is no amount of supplementation, nutrition, yoga, stretching, ROMWOD (which is yoga), ice baths or muscle contracting machines that are going to benefit you more than sleep. Everyone has elements in there life that prevent them from getting eight or more hours of sleep (parents especially). But the reality is that if you want to recovery optimally then sleep needs to become a priority in your life. And of course every night won’t be perfect, just try to be consistent with your sleep and the results will speak for themselves. Today’s post “How To Optimize Recovery” has a plethora of information on this subject.
Here are some fun moments from this year’s Crossfit Games.
