More Pressing Matters to Attend…

Iron Grip CrossFit – CrossFit

We train strength while under cardiovascular stress because it helps to make us fitter than we would be without it. It also teaches us how to push through obstacles that have no care for what state of fatigue we are in or what stressors we have already experienced. We learn more about ourselves this way.

After yesterday’s workout, it will be important to give our muscles a little extra care. This will make today’s workout a little less harrowing and set us up for an even better workout tomorrow and/or the next day. Here is a video from Kelly Starrett, a Doctor of physical therapy. He makes some very good points about caring for the soft tissues (muscles, mostly) in order to simply perform better at life in general.
