Thinking big: Recovery
Over the past 10 years, there has been a massive shift in focus from training to recovery. Athletes around the world have begun investing equal amounts into their recovery (Lebron James reportetly spends $1.5mm a year on recovery) as they do on their training.
With that, here are some of the best up and coming recovery products:
- Theragun: “Theragun Percussive Therapy is massage reinvented™. Dr. Jason created percussive therapy to increase blood flow and decrease tension deep within the muscle, using scientifically-calibrated combination of speed and depth to treat your muscles comfortably by overriding the pain signals sent to the brain.” (Via Theragun.com)
- Hyperice (Normatec): “Dynamic air compression effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.” (Via Hyperice.com)
- O2 Living CBD: Our very own product helps relieve soreness and pain after a tough workout. Specifically, CBD has been known to aid in muscle relief. Our 1000mg CBD Intensive Relief Cream is a go to for many athletes looking to expand their recovery tools.
In all – it makes sense that athletes are starting to realize it’s a two way street. Overworking the body can be detrimental to athletic gains that these athletes strive for on a consistent bases. Go out there and invest in yourself!
