Monday - Stretching and Cortisol



Rest Day

Work out the kinks in those muscles! Try to spend at least 20 minutes today on loosening up your muscles with massage, foam rolling, stretching, etc. You might have noticed that there has been an increased focus on limbering up lately, and this is in response partly to my observations of CrossFitters in general (myself included) and partly to a few good articles I’ve been reading. Often we put so much focus on the training and slack in the stretching/body maintenance department. Neglecting to maintain muscles can lead to more injuries, more soreness, worse recovery, and WORSE PERFORMANCE. Tight muscles inhibit your ability to perform at your best, so Release Your E-Brake and get loosened up!
