What to Do After a Competition?

By Rob | In Coach's Blog, Uncategorized | on January 8, 2012

Did you do the CrossFit West Houston Civil War: Racked and Loaded? You are most likely somewhat sore, maybe a lot sore. So what should you do. Here are some things to do:

  1. Rest. Three or four workouts is a lot to do in one day. No need to rush to the gym or rush to workout again. Relax you earned it.
  2. Ice Bath. Fill up a tub with cold water. Add ice. Sit in it for at least 5 minutes. Even just a cold water bath will help with recovery.
  3. Foam Roller or Lacrosse Ball. There was a lot of work done yesterday. Agitate the soft tissue to work out any kinks, knots and left over lactic acid. Get the blood flowing so you can repair.
  4. Massage. Treat yourself, go get a massage. Nice dark room. Soft music. And relaxing full body massage, sounds pretty good to me.
  5. Relaxation Breathing. Breathe like babies do, through your diaphragm. Lie on your back, close your eyes, put your hand on your belly, slowly breath in and make your hands rise. Feel the stress leave as you slowly exhale.
