An introduction to basic recovery techniques, this program is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to decrease pain, improve flexibility and range of motion, and help you to reach your fitness goals! It might not be your typical workout, but we assure that your body will be thankful you joined. We will discuss a new technique every week including band-assisted and active stretching as well as self-massage, progressive muscle relaxation, and reflexology...just to name a few!

Hop on and get ready to face the week with 30 minutes of stretching exercises that will hurt so good! We will work to improve flexibility, increase strength, and expand your range of motion in each session while sharing the knowledge you need to combat muscle soreness, pain, and tension after those hard workouts throughout the week. Proper recovery increases the bloodflow to your muscles, stimulates growth and healing, and retrains your muscles to comfortably get just *that much* longer.

Adaptive Adventures programs offer a variety of high intensity and stregth based fitness programs that encourage you to push your physical limit daily. Though these programs typically involve short warm-up and cool-down exercises that increase and decrease your heart rate, it isn't often that much time is spent on recovery. This program is designed to show you the best ways to stretch and care for yourself after exercise and give your body the help it needs to do its thing and be the best it can be!

Recovery of tissues including muscles, tendons, and other connective fascia is so important and so often overlooked when fitness is considered. Recovery of the body and mind through stretching, meditation, breathwork, massage, myofascial release, pressure point therapies, and other techniques is proven to be effective in diminishing risk of injury, boosting regeneration of both body and nervous tissue, improve mental health, and increase exercise performance.


Active and Isometric Stretching (12/14):

Active stretching is a technique that uses the antagonistic relationships of muscles to come into a deep stretch. In this techinque, you will hold a contracted position for a set time, usually 60 seconds or less, without moving. Isometric stretching targets muscle by coming into a stretched position, then breifly counteracting the force of the stretch and then relaxing, stimulating different bundles of muscle fibers to engage and release during the stretch. These techniques are most effective to increase flexibility and range of motion through the training of muscle fibers to extend through a motion. These techniques can also decrease muscle soreness after exercise, and allow for muscle relaxation that reverses the tension that exercise creates. A stretch band will be used to apply the necessary pressure during isometric stretches. If you do not have a stretching strap, you can use a towel, belt, shoelace, long-sleeved shirt, heavy resistance band, or any other long and flexible object!
