Nutrition and recovery go hand in hand. Like bacon and eggs or peanut butter and …. well pretty much everything. But actually what is recovery? Optimal recovery is multifactorial with nutrition, sleep, massage / therapy, movement and sleep all playing pivotal roles in recovery from exercise. This month we will provide everything you need to supercharge your recovery.

The nature of CrossFit places huge emphasis on recovery. If you rock up to the gym - walk on the treadmill for 15 minutes, do 20 crunches and stretch does that require the same recovery as crushing a hero WOD? We want to make you healthier and better at CrossFit, and recovery is a huge part of this.

There is an incredible amount of science and technical terms when recovery is on the agenda. From glycogen replenishment,  cytokines, neural drive and TNF- α it can be overwhelming reading about this. This month we will work through some practical advice to help maximise your recovery
