High intensity workouts continue to be the hottest and fastest growing passion among athletes and those in fitness training. Many have been obsessed, which has led to over-training and injuries.
Tough workouts aren’t going away anytime soon, but people are finally focusing on good habits to offset their physical toll and focusing on the importance of muscle recovery. We know about the diet and exercise balance and now people are incorporating recovery as an important factor to a healthy lifestyle. The old rule of health is 70% nutrition – what you eat and 30% physical activity. To get true balance, one MUST add regular recovery to the percentage mix.
The use of cold for the benefit of health is found world wide in athletic locker rooms. Cryotherapy is the “I” in R-I-C-E (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). This treatment is recommended for the care of many injuries, particularly those caused by sports or physical activity, such as runner’s knee, sprains, and tendonitis. Now the athlete himself/herself may be in control to add the “cold benefit” after their workout.
Train Harder. Muscle Recovery Faster!
A session of Cryotherapy immediately after exercise has been proven to enhance muscular recovery by constraining the inflammatory process. Regular use of Cryotherapy promotes anti-inflammatory properties, which decreases recovery time by up to 50%, to improve ability to train, recover, and perform. Adding Cryotherapy to your routine will help keep your body in peak physical shape and give you an edge on your opponents. By reducing muscle soreness and improving range of motion, this therapy allows for a more intense, higher volume training, enabling you to maximize your full potential.
As more people recover properly and see how much better they feel, this habit may be the new obsession.
