CrossFit is a high intensity, physically demanding activity that places strain on your body. While this exertion is beneficial to muscle development and cardiovascular improvement, it can, at times, leave even the most experienced athlete feeling sore and run down. It is quite common to place more emphasis on the workouts themselves and neglect the recovery process that your body needs to make even more progress. To compliment your hard work in the gym, follow these recovery guidelines and reap the benefits!
It’s probably the most common excuse that we hear (or perhaps have used ourselves): “I’d love to make it to class, but I just don’t have time.” Really? Is that truly the case? Do you not have time OR are you not making it a priority? Try saying this instead: “I’d love to make it to class, but it’s just not a priority.” Oh---not really what you want to hear, but most likely a little closer to the truth.
