Recovering is something that I place a lot of of importance in when working with my athletes.
For example, new research tells us that our risk for injury can be decreased by almost 50% if we get 9+ hours of sleep. Unrealistic? Maybe. But it doesn’t change the fact of how important it truly is.
Contrary to popular belief, I don’t believe that the industry of fitness has an over-training problem, but rather a complex and multi-factorial under-recovering problem.
Simply put, your training program could be driving you into the ground beyond your ability to repair with volumes, intensities, frequencies or methodology that is a mismatch for you.
But how would you know? If you’re a coach, how do you know if the program is right or wrong for that specific athlete or client?
Individualizing the program to meet your goals and needs, or the goals and needs of your clients, is one of the most important topics we discuss at our “Train Smarter, Not Harder”workshop.
Our next workshop is being held at @ Erie Shore CrossFit on January 26, 2019.
We hope to see you there!
