Recovery (torture) Tools



Alright, welcome back everyone. A couple days ago. I slightly injured my back, so I figured this week I'd cover some recovery aspects and why recovery is so important for your weekly routine and planning it into your schedule. So it's not a matter of if you're going to get injured, it’s only a matter of when you're going to get injured. So you want to have the right tools to help with that recovery so you can get back to action and training as fast as possible.

So as you can see here, I've got quite a different assortment of of tools and things and I'm not saying you have to go out and buy every single one of these, I'm just saying overtime, based on your injury, you may need a different kind of recovery tool. So to give you an idea of what’s out there and available. Here is our Standard foam roller, these are pretty common in most gyms and pretty cheap. We have peanut roller bars, which are good for going along the spine.

We have small lacrosse balls. We've got some bigger mobility balls good for getting into the glutes. We have some of bigger balls that vibrate.

And then we have all kinds of different rollers, this is for your calf for you or for your shin. Foot rollers, quad rollers, floss bands; psoas release, which will help with the psoas by laying on top.

Then we have these nice little TENS units that are compact and able to apply some different electrical stimulation to the muscles.


We have the red light therapy, which is good for all kinds of different things from skin, to muscle recovery, to sleep.

And then lastly we have the good old ice bath here, helping with those sore muscles.

Basically you're going to get hurt at some point or another so have the tools available to help you get back into action, et back healthy again and start with your training.
