Sometime after a tough week of training you just feel like you’ve been thrown in a high-speed blender and then been hit by a truck. Your whole body is sore, your muscles ache, your motivation starts to wane and its a lot harder to get in the right frame of mind for training. Well last week was one such week for me. After teaching thirteen private classes, five regular classes and my own personal BJJ training, my body and mind were obliterated And it was only thursday afternoon! I still had a Thursday night class to teach, three private classes and a regular class on friday to teach(Not that I am complaining, I love my job! 🙂 !!!!).
Well I decided to take a little time out and get a Thai massage and that is the reason for today’s post! Not only did I survive teaching on thursday night and friday, I loved it! A good massage can do wonders for your well-being. It can:
-relax you and help you think clearer
-relieve built up tension from daily life and the week’s training
-increase flexibility and range of motion
-improve your mood and state of mind
-help reduce the risk of injury
-improve your circulation
-and help you recover and sleep better
So next time, you’re feeling a little worse for wear, try getting a good massage and see how much it will help you and how good you will feel afterwards! Given the opportunity I’d have one daily! 🙂
Good luck with your training and Happy rolling!
