Last year I got my training so wrong! I destroyed myself by over training, not resting, not taking the time to recover or giving my body what it needed in terms of sleep, supplements and many other things.
This year, I knew I had to train differently if I was going to make it to the start line of the Marathon des Sables. So I have been trying a whole range of things; new supplements, new diet, working with a naturopath to get my health back on track, training with a personal trainer, doing journalling, meditation, crystals, oils, epsom salts, hot baths etc
I was on twitter, as I am most days! And I heard about Absolute 360 - A brand new company who were offering something new and different. I was intrigued.
My mindset is now, I will try anything new and give it a go and see what happens.
I want to do everything possible to support my recovery and my training.
So Absolute 360 is clothing and apparel which is all about; wellness, performance and recovery!
After reading that I new I had to find out more!!
What is it about Absolute 360 that makes them different? The difference is INFRARED.
So this is the science bit!
The human body emits infrared radiation all the time. The yarn in the material absorbs the infrared radiation from the wearer's body and the yarn re-emits the absorbed infrared radiation as far infrared (FIR) waves. The far infrared waves then penetrate into the body stimulating cellular metabolism and improving micro-circulation.
There is a diagram below which explains it as well!
When do you wear it?
You can wear it while you’re training and it will help improve performance and endurance. You can also use it as a recovery aid after exercise or even every day for an improved state of well-being.
I will probably be wearing it 24/7 to get all the benefits out of it!!
So what are the benefits for you?
Improves: Body thermo-regulation, cell metabolism & blood micro-circulation.
Reduces: Inflammation & muscle spasms, muscle & joint pain, swelling.
Enhances: Recovery & performance
Increases: Tissue Oxygen Circulation
