Recovery seems to be a sticking point for a lot of first responders. We deal with a lot of stress and experience critical incidents that can cause both short term and long term trauma. The job comes with a crazy schedule and therefore a perceived lack of time, in many cases. We add additional stress upon ourselves through training, both physically and mentally.
So what can we do to help ourselves? How does recovery play a role in the life of an LEO?
Let’s start with what recovery means. One definition is the following:
“A return to a normal state of health, mind or strength.”
For us at Effective Fitness, that version is the most important to us. We strive to give that to you after every workout session and beyond. So how do we accomplish that?
A healthy state of mind for you will be different...
