Nutrition & Recovery

A Training program, by itself, makes you weaker.

It’s rest, recovery and food that makes you stronger.

It begins with Sleep. Then Nutrition. At the end of the day, if your training is awesome, but your nutrition and the rest is shitty, you will be outrun by life.

CrossFit Bathurst will keep emphasizing on nutrition . So if you’re not ready to sacrifice and make a few changes in your lifestyle outside the gym, than maybe we’re not right for you. But if you truely want a better quality of life, we will be more than happy to help you along the way!

Keeping nutrition simple

These aren’t the newest techniques from the latest cutting-edge plan. They are simple, time-tested, no nonsense habits. Here goes:

  1. At every meal, you should eat lean PROTEIN (meat, poultry, fish, eggs.. )
  2. At every meal, you should eat Carbohydrates (vegetables or fruit)
  3. At every meal, you should eat Fat (oils, nuts and seeds)
  4. Drink lots of water. Skip the sugar crap!
  5. Avoid High Glycemic Carbohydrates (rice, potato, pasta, sweets, processed foods, etc. Avoid milk products.

Put the above-mentioned habits to use over 90% of the time and you’ll gain energy and mental clarity. You’ll achieve optimal body weight composition (lose fat, build muscles). You’ll improve your fitness and enhance performance (strength and endurance) and have faster and more complete recovery from training efforts. You’ll also reduce inflammatory, improve your overall health and sleep better.

On Recovery…

At one time or another, we’ve all felt sore, fatigued and generally beat up. It’s the result of training. But, adequate recovery allows for more training and ultimately improves performance. Just don’t do it before it’s too late. Look at your body, like the maintenance of your car.

A clean nutrition and sleeping 8-10 hours a night in a dark room, is a good start. Recovery also involves stretching and soft tissue work such as massage therapy and self-myofascial release.
