ICE ICE BABY...
I really don't know what he was thinking making a video in his University of Miami sweatshirt....pretty awesome.
Anyway, the reason for the title and the video is to impress upon everyone that ice baths are "the single best recovery technique, hands down." a quote from my coach Kurt at http://www.pbmcoaching.com/
I will post some numbers after this week. Right now I am hitting some of my highest volume in a LONG time. Everything seems to be coming together. I don't feel that tired and I am getting faster and stronger with each passing day. The training is not beating me down like in past years.
So why am I not tired? Because everything I am doing, outside of training, is dedicated to recovery. Here is what I mean and what you can do.
#1 Ice baths after EVERY tough session
#2 Eating A LOT and often, no cutting cals. Food = Fast
#3 Sleeping A LOT...naps and 9hrs every night.
#4 Self massage/stretching EVERY NIGHT.
#5 Drinking water all the time.
Training is hard, but sometimes recovery is even harder. Everyone can train hard, but doing everything you can to absorb the training is what is going to make you faster.
Have a great week and remember that training goes beyond SBRing.
