Improving Your CrossFit Performance

Bottom Line:


CrossFit is a challenging sport!


Participants primarily focus on strength and conditioning and add in a healthy dose of competition for good measure.


Their training programs typically incorporate a wide range of exercises - everything from kettlebell-specific exercises to high-intensity interval training (HIIT) involving explosive plyometric movements to Olympic weightlifting and elements of powerlifting.


CrossFit success comes down to consistency and dedication, and a common goal most CrossFitters share is to improve their WOD (that’s workout a day for the uninitiated).

 

And we know that to do that, they’ll need a plan that allows them to not only achieve their best performance, but that also helps ensure their body can recover quickly.


The last thing any CrossFitter wants is for injuries to pop up, slow them down, and potentially keep them from going to the gym altogether. 


That’s where we come in.



Why it Matters:


If you’re a CrossFitter looking to optimize both your performance and recovery, there is no better choice than chiropractic care!


Did you know…


Recent research has shown that chiropractic adjustments can positively influence your nervous system in ways that result in increased strength.


What’s more, adjustments can help to improve your spinal motion and reduce your body’s overall inflammation levels which, in turn, can help speed up your recovery.


To put that all together:


CrossFit is a popular, high-intensity style workout that focuses on strength and conditioning.

Improving your core strength and flexibility can help reduce your likelihood of experiencing injuries during and between CrossFit sessions, and chiropractic care can help.

In a recent study, researchers found that athletes experienced a measurable and sustained increase in strength for up to 30 minutes following chiropractic adjustments.



Next Steps: 


Crossfit is challenging.


It’s demanding.


It’s intense.


That's all part of what makes it so much fun!


And to make sure you stay at the top of your game and in the gym, you’ll want to make sure to balance all that activity with the proper rest and recovery.


Your adjustments will go a long way towards keeping you strong and active, and our expert team is also happy to recommend nutritional supplements and pain relieving creams to help you achieve your CrossFit goals.


So, if we’ve got you thinking about looking up a CrossFit rehab chiropractor in Webster, go ahead and give us a call before you hit the gym!

Testimonials

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
