Welcome to recoveryworkout.com!

Whether you’re a CrossFitter, a power athlete in competitive sport, a marathon runner or triathlete, a bodybuilder or even a regular Joe/Jill who simply enjoys pushing the envelope, recovery is important to you. Or at least, it should be. You probably already realize that the intensity of training required to help you reach your goals takes a toll on your body. Since you’ve found your way here you probably also realize that you need an effective recovery plan to avoid winding up burnt out or injured. That’s where we come in.

We’re here to help with the following:

  • reducing aches and pains
  • decreasing inflammation
  • improving circulation and removing metabolic wastes
  • maintaining high quality nutrients at a cellular level
  • reducing systemic acidity
  • regenerating tissue and reducing overall breakdown
  • improving active joint range of motion as well as passive flexibility

Our philosophy encompasses all aspects of lifestyle. There are many contributing factors to properly recovering from the intensity of exercise you are likely experiencing. It’s more than simply quaffing a post-workout shake, taking a rest day here and there or getting a massage once in a while. Those strategies are definitely important, but they are a small part of a bigger picture.

Recovery is a broad topic that spills into all aspects of life including some obvious areas and some not so obvious ones, including:

  • nutrition and hydration quality and timing
  • active and passive rest days
  • sleep quality and quantity
  • stress moderation and nervous system balance
  • post workout modalities
  • healing therapies such as physio, massage and chiropractic care
  • joint mobility and flexibility
  • training smarter, not just harder

The information found on this site is based on research as well as experience and intuition and is intended as a pool of information. As a general rule, consider all reliable information; read with an open mind, ask questions and practice on yourself as well as your clients. You may be surprised to find that people will respond differently to any given practice. After all, we’re all different beasts with slightly different biochemistries, physiologies, likes and dislikes, all of which will play a part in the overall effectiveness of training and recovery.

Starting in October 2012 we’ll add sample workouts to the “Workouts” page to help with your recovery process, improve your range of motion and maybe even give you some new warm-up drills for your usual training. They’re intended to be used as a training supplement 1-2 times per week for those people who are regularly exposing their bodies to a high amount of stress, either through intensity, volume or load. They can also be used more often for those people who are feeling burnt out, those with limited flexibility or those who tapering their training. If you’re unfamiliar with

We’re also continually updating the information, writing new articles and generally rambling about the goings-on in the world of recovery information. So feel free to look around, get in touch with us if you have any questions or comments or check back soon if you can’t find what you’re looking for.
