The whiteboard talk just ended, you finish the warmup and are ready to get going on the WOD but all of a sudden you see a bunch of people run to their gym bags, kick off their sneakers, grab their weight belts, wrist wraps, knee sleeves, and lifters, what is going on here?!? They look like they are ready to go into battle with everything on, but is your equipment being used properly?

  • Hike (nothing crazy here, find a nice easy slope and go for a walk outdoors)

NOTE ABOUT ACTIVE RECOVERY – The activity selected must be restorative for you. It can also be an opportunity to work on a skill (like swimming or rowing), but the effort expended should leave you feeling energized at the end of the session, not depleted. I would also always pre...
