Recovery: Products

Training alone doesn't make you a better athlete. It is the stress caused by training and the subsequent rest/recovery period that produces those changes to your body.  To ensure you maximize your fitness here are some fueling products we recommend.  

Recovery Sandal/Shoe: OOFOS

Performance is all about periods of increased stress followed by recovery.  One of our favorite ways to relax after a race is to take off those muddy shoes and slip on something a little more comfortable.  OOFOS makes recovery sandals that absorb 37% more impact than traditional running shoe foam.  They come in a variety of styles and colors including recovery shoes.

Order yours at OOFOS and don't forget to tell them the CTG Pro Team sent you.

Post-Training Comfort: dryrobe

A big part of post race recovery is just being comfortable.  The most comfortable product we know also keeps you warm and is a portable changing area.  The soft lining will keep you toasty in the coolest conditions and the waterproof outer shell will keep you dry.  Even on hot days, you can literally zip it up and change in the middle of a crowded festival.

Recovery Compression: Marena Sport Tights and/or MudGear Socks

Although both are designed for racing and not necessarily recovery compression (which is usually tighter), they can be used for both.  If you are on the line between two sizes, use the larger one for your race kit and the smaller one for your post race recovery.  The tight pressure of these garments will help circulate the blood and clear waster products.  Best time to put this stuff on is immediately post-race or hard training session.  On a final note, the long Marena Sport compression and long Mudgear socks will give you the best recovery.  


For more information on Marena Sport compression see this Mud Run Guide article.

High End Recovery Product: Compex Electrical Muscle Stimulation device

An Electrical Muscle Stimulation EMS device is basically a series of electrodes that hook to the targeted muscle (aka muscle you want to improve). The device then sends electrical currents through your muscles making them forcibly contract. Model dependent, the device comes with several settings including endurance, recovery, resistance, strength, pre-warm up, explosive strength and potentiation.  It provides a portable recovery device you can actually use at your desk or while sitting on the couch.
