The Easiest 20 Minutes of Your Day…Guaranteed: ROMWOD – Cherry Hill CrossFit
We all know the importance of maintaining our bodies, especially with how demanding our sport is. Day in and day out we punish our bodies with rigorous exercise and activity. It’s only right that we spend just as much time aiding its (our body) recovery. Easier said than done…
Everyone’s busy. We barely have enough time to take an hour or two out of our day to workout, let alone another hour or two to stretch, mobilize, meditate, etc. Well, the folks over at ROMWOD (Range of Motion Workout of the Day) have made it easier than ever to take care of your body. It will be the easiest, and likely, most impactful, 20 minutes of your day.
Now let me state that I have absolutely no affiliate with ROMWOD, nor are they compensating me in any way for this blog. I’m just that impressed with it. I subscribed to ROMWOD a little over two weeks ago after seeing some of my favorite athletes posting pictures and videos on social media of their daily mobility. Since I am currently sidelined with an injury, I figured I would spend this time working on mobilization and range of motion. Offering a 7 day free trial, ROMWOD was an easy choice, so I subscribed.
ROMWOD allows you to follow along with their daily range of motion programming, or can choose routines based off of your specific needs:
The routines are about 20 minutes long, perfect for a pre workout warm up or sneaking in before bed. Every once and a while the programming will call for a longer routine, maybe 40-45 minutes. Don’t have that kind of time? ROMWOD also gives the option for a “Short on Time” version. My biggest obstacle when working on mobilization on my own was that I never knew how long to hold a pose or if I was doing the pose properly. Am I breathing correctly? ROMWOD walks you through from start to finish, explaining each position and where you should be feeling the stretch, how long to hold, and even helps with breathing counts. It makes everything truly effortless on your part.
Two weeks after my first experience with ROMWOD…..I’m hooked! It has easily become my favorite part of the day and sometimes I’ll even do the routine twice (prior, it was a battle for me to even sit down after lifting for just 5 minutes to stretch!). The most impressive part is that I’m seeing results every day. I can get further into these poses than I was ever able to before and my range of motion has increased dramatically. If you are looking for a simple solution to maintaining your body, ROMWOD is the way to go….guaranteed!
