Every March, Swerve Fitness hosts their annual Swerve Madness competition. Participants pick a partner and ride it out for a month long community challenge. Multiple categories mean more ways to score additional swerve points and rewards! If you're attending most days this month, with a particular goal in mind, you'll need a particular method of recovery!
Dan Giordano of Bespoke Treatments was invited to deliver and lead a discussion on recovery at Swerve's 46th street location to help kick off the month long competition. Dan touched on topics regarding the right way to fuel pre and post work out, proper stretching, recovery accessories such as the foam roller, and the importance of getting a good night's rest.
Participants attending the discussion were avid Swerve spinners, with questions concerning how and when to foam roll, the technology behind compression, and what a rest day should look like. When exercising as much as the Swerve Madness sign-ups are, it's crucial to give your body what it needs.
Dan explained that knots and adhesions in muscle and fascia tissue can be addressed effectively through the use of a foam roller with peaks and ridges, shown here at Rove Goods. This is an important element of any pre or post workout accessory, as they increase blood flow and circulation in the muscle assisting in a much faster recovery.
Dan's delivery was invaluable to any athlete, and we wish all of the participants of this month's Swerve madness all the luck as they battle it out to for all the packages and perks!
