While frequently working out your body is likely to start to stiffen up. There are a few things to be done. Stretching, foam rolling, and now here at CrossFit Hydraulic you have the option of body tempering.
Body Tempering was developed Donnie Thompson, by the only man to powerlift 3,000 lbs, and taught directly to Hydraulics Powerlifting coach Donny Smith. It is used in some professional football weight rooms and with a number of powerlifters across the globe.
But what is body tempering and what does it do? Bodytempering.com says “Simply put, the X-Wife diffuses (Dispersal) tissue and its crushing weight relieves tightness involving fascia, muscle, veins, organs and nerves. They aid in ridding toxins (toxins are strongly acidic, metabolic waste and molecules associated with inflammation but not limited to) specifically from the fascia, veins and nerve encasement’s. Like a rolling pin kneading dough.” Muscle and Fitness did a great write up here: http://www.muscleandfitness.com/workouts/workout-tips/body-tempering-improve-physical-performance
Here is Hydraulic’s own Donny Smith demonstrating Body Tempering. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to give this a try.
