• When training ramps up, personal care should follow

    This is the time of year when northern hemisphere endurance athletes ramp up their training plans. It doesn’t matter if the athlete is training for a triathlon, a road cycling event or a mountain bike race – training volume and intensity is increasing.

    When training is increasing, it is also time to increase self-care. This means making sure that stretching, massage and high quality rest are as much a part of your routine as a workout.  

    Tools like a massage stick, the pillar of pain (foam roller) and the Thera Cane are good to have in your toolbox. These can help maintain body care between massage, chiropractor and/or acupuncture treatments.

    If you are tough on your body, take extra care to treat it well after tough training sessions.
