Recovery done properly.

Recovery done properly.

Hi, My Names Daniel Griffiths. I am a Personal Trainer and a qualified Massage therapist.

I work with a range of different clients, from high performing athletes to every day people who want to live a pain free life. My hands on approach to recovery and training has allowed me to help hundreds of people in Auckland.


With over 15 years of experience in the industry i have pretty much tried it all when it comes to recovery. I have compiled a list of my “Top 5 tips” to help you improve your recovery from training but before we get into that i want you to understand this:

“Precover before you recover. Take a tip from Brandon Marcello: “Sleep and nutrition are NOT recovery, they’re Pre-Covery. If you don’t have good sleep and good, consistent nutrition, it doesn’t matter what recovery strategy you use. You won’t get much out of it.””

Alright, let’s get started!

1

Get a massage on steroids. Active Release Therapy is almost literally that. It’s a serious massage that’ll work your muscles back to their prime.

2

Go for a float. Set up a sesh in a sensory deprivation tank to give your mind and body a little recharge.

3

Strike a yoga pose. Try out Yin Yoga or ROMWOD (Range of Motion Workout of the Day) or GoWOD to get those deeeep stretches that target your connective tissues.

4

Up your foam rolling game. Try Gua Sha scraping with an ART practitioner. (I can do this aswell if you need)

5

Walk it out. Literally just go for a walk. And if you can, ditch your shoes and socks – some super sciency dudes say it’s better for recovery. It might be a lie, but I gotta say, getting your toes in the sand or the grass feels pretty damn relaxing.

And that’s a wrap. Feel better yet?
