My thoughts on Improving Workout Recovery

Hey CrossFitters,

I took a minute over on my blog to jot down some of my thoughts on how you can improve your workout recovery, starting before you even workout.

It's written for beginners, but veterans may pick up a tip or two as well. Would love to hear some feedback on it or suggestions to add to it.

This is great info for me, I'm a newbie. I still have issues with the whole recovery and am bad about hitting the garage rushed for time. I get in all of my warm ups, skill building, strength, the WOD, then go straight back in the house and finish up the nightly house chores while I'm still catching my breath, never thinking beyond the protein shake or dinner. I don't even own a foam roller, and boy do my legs needs one after dead lift work last night.

Re: My thoughts on Improving Workout Recovery

Nice article OP!

Quote:
•5g Creatine + 3g Beta Alanine + 5g Citruline Malate
I try to be as natural as I can with my diet. I just try to hit a diet which I can do "till I die" so I dont wanna use any supplements. Is it possible to improve my own body's production of these "things" and improve it naturally? (I know when competing, supplements are a must, but for the rest 99% of the time I dont believe they are needed).

Quote:
•Consider having coconut water with you either during or pre-workout. It can help improve workout recovery by keeping you hydrated and replenishing electrolytes – just like Gatorade but without all the sugar. A lack of electrolytes can lead to muscle cramping.
I believe this is only needed if workout lasts 1h+, body should have enough stored to under 1h workouts, true?

Quote:
•With protein, Hydrolyzed Whey is the best option, it’s the most rapidly absorbed by the bloodstream
Is this really mandatory, the hydro whey? Because its really much more expensive than regular whey and some say its only 12 minutes faster, which really is not a big deal in my point of view?
