The Value of RecoveryJanuary 23, 2019
Some of the hardest training I do is in the Recovery process. Massage, acupuncture, chiropractor, cold water dousing and fasting are a staple of my personal recovery routines. Daily mindfulness and prayer are also a big part of my mental health routine. Needless to say, it is ‘active’ recovery.
I know … I know … Power is so sexy, recovery not so much. Many times we are on the road to recovery only to easily step off the path and become trapped in a cycle of ‘over-train’ syndrome. Beating our bodies up for no good benefit.
We all must focus on active recovery so that we don’t destroy ourselves with the hardship and pain of work, life, and training. It’s a very difficult balance, recovery, and power but Systema training can help you find this balance.
Like all things, you need to practice them to get good. Start training today I guarantee it will change your life in the best possible way.
PS – If you know someone who is just working too hard, pushing too long or burnt out (we all have one of those). Be a good friend and share this with them. Better yet get them to FC and show them the good things we are doing on the mats!
