In the month of October our focus is Recovery. For us, recovery refers to the methods we use and the steps we take to allow our body to rest and repair.

These include but are not limited to:

  • Sleep
  • Time spent outside the gym
  • Hydration
  • Nutrition
  • Posture
  • Stretching, mashing & rolling
  • Stress management
  • Compression

Recovery is multi-sided and includes more than just muscle repair. It involves chemical and hormonal equilibrium, nervous system repair, mental hygiene, and more.

This month as we explore this topic we hope to give some clarity to the how and why it’s so important to our overall health and wellness.

Here’s what we have on deck in the weeks to come:

  • 21 Day Mash & Roll Challenge
  • Hydration’s Role In Recovery
  • What Is Active Recovery?
  • Making Recovery Part Of Your Routine

We hope you’ll stick with us, participate in the comments and conversations on Facebook. Many of you are wrapping up race seasons or beginning a new training regimen. Now is a great time to learn new methods, and set priorities that include recovery.
