I will be the first one to tell you that sometimes there is not enough time in the day to get everything done! Between work, family, the holidays and oh yes working out it seems like we all can be running at full speed daily. Sometimes we need to be reminded to stop and smell the roses. Well here is your reminder from your neighborhood mobility man, stop and cool down!
Yes i am referring to dedicating enough time after a workout to make sure you are taking proper care of your beat up body! Why is it so important to make sure you have a proper cool down? Well for starters it will help you with your day after muscle soreness. Ever got done working out and then had to leave quickly to get somewhere on time? Did you find yourself abnormally stiff later on that night? This is because you just beat down your tissues and left lactic acid and toxins to pool together in some kind of magical soreness stew! The only way to get this garbage out of your tissues and help with the healing process is to make sure that you continue with your blood circulation, pushing out the bad blood and bringing in the new blood high in oxygen and nutrients.
We do our best to help facilitate a proper cool down by offering mobility after class and all the extra tools needed for you to concentrate on those aching areas. As much as we can offer the only thing we cant do is make more time in your day, this is up to you. So next time when you want to rush out the door just remember the magical stew that is brewing!
