Recovery tips from Elites Recovery fundamentals Athletic Greens Thank You InsideTracker! This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker, one of the most reputable blood testing companies in the world. They were founded in 2009 by aging, genetics, and biometrics scientists to help you analyze your body’s data and get a firm idea of how well you’re responding to training.
Understanding your body’s biomarkers, from stress hormones to testosterone to Vitamin D, can help you figure out if you’re over-training, under-training, optimally training, or if you have a health issue that might be affecting your running. But the best part is that they give you personalized optimal ranges for each of these biomarkers and a host of ways to improve these markers through diet, lifestyle, or exercise changes.
I’ve personally gotten three Ultimate tests from them and the process is simple, easy, and very eye-opening if you haven’t done a deep dive on your biomarkers yet. Of all the investments you can make in your running, this one is like getting a detailed checkup or regularly scheduled maintenance for your internal physiology.
If you’re ready to take control of your health and optimize your training, get 25% off any of their blood tests with code STRENGTHRUNNING at InsideTracker.
Thank you Therabody! If you want sound recovery, a big part of that is circulation. One of the reasons why massage feels so good after a hard effort is because of circulation: it brings fresh, oxygenated blood to your legs. The RecoveryAir by Therabody does that without needing someone to give you a massage. Plus, you can do it on the couch while you watch Netflix.
What I love about the RecoveryAir Jetboots is that the pressure travels from your feet up to your heart and this graduated approach is more effective. The compression goes beyond your normal blood pressure while also monitoring it to prevent over-constriction. My personal preference is to use the boots the day after a hard day so I’m not giving my legs more than they can handle.
