March 22, 2018 – Recovery

Recovery Day

If you are feeling really good today… great! use that energy to spend some extra time on mobility. Youtube is a great resource here… what feels achy today? Your feet – roll them on a lacross ball and work some toe strengthening. Your hip flexors – spend some time rolling them out + stretching.

Dont forget to prep some food so we can crush the next few days.

Mobility and Maintenance
* Choose 1-2 Thoracic Mobility Drills and Spend 10-12 minutes on them
* Choose 2-3 Lower Body Mobility Drills and spend 10-12 minutes with them.
* Choose 1-2 Upper Extremity Mobility Drills and spend 5-10 minutes with them.
– AND/OR –
* Body work from a licensed body worker (ART, Graston, acupuncture, etc…)

Nutrition Preparation
* Ensure that you have quality foods prepared in the appropriate quantities to fuel your efforts for the remainder of the week.

Mental Restoration
* Different for everyone – could be meditation or could be gathering with friends; the key is to engage in activities that make your life full and help you recharge your batteries.
