We all know that CrossFit training is meant to push you hard in order to obtain tremendous gains. Once your workout is over though, it is a good idea to rejuvenate so you can outperform during your next round of training. One good way to get yourself prepared is Sports Massage, and here are 3 reasons why.
Reduce Fatigue – CrossFit is strenuous and can lead to swelling and tension in your muscles. To maximize your workout and alleviate pain, Sports Massage can revitalize your body by increasing blood flow in tight muscles. By reducing your fatigue, you will be able to work just as hard in your next training session, and possibly more frequently.
Prevent Injury – To prevent injury during your next Cross Fit session, sports massage helps to alleviate minor injuries due to muscle overuse and overextension. By alleviating these minor muscle injuries before your next workout, you can avoid more serious injuries that will put you out of training for longer periods of time.
Increase Flexibility – When muscles are overused, such as in constant AMRAP, the muscle may start losing flexibility. Along with Yoga, sports massage should be included in your regular routine to help keep you flexible and strong.
So, whether you are looking into getting into CrossFit or a frequent participant, working sports massage into your routine may just help you take your workouts to the next level. Call us today to learn more, 757-675-9077, or stop by and check out our Hampton CrossFit training facility for yourself.
