I started doing Romwod after my last half marathon. The bf showed it to me during a painfully slow rest week after the last Rock n Roll half in March. I can’t believe how much more flexible I have already become.
I almost wish it didn’t work so well, because it can be really hard to get myself to do it after an already long and hard workout. But I never regret doing it.
There are two ways you can go:
1. Daily Romwod – you just log in and it gives you a romwod routine to do everyday. They vary in length from 11 minutes to 45 minutes. For the longer ones, there is usually a “short on time” option, which is really nice.
2. You can go looking for routines that target specific body parts, how long you have time-wise, and whether you want to increase, recover, prepare ect.
It is similar to yoga, except you get yourself into the positions and just try to relax. You stay passive in the position through the discomfort of the stretch. It is pretty interesting to hear the theory behind, which they explain as you go through each pose. It is very popular in the crossfit community, but is gaining a lot of popularity in other sports and discipline as well. The mental toughness behind it resonates with me both as a marathoner in training and a competitive equestrian.
It is $14 a month, but I think it is worth it. I like that I can do it anywhere off my phone, iPad, or computer. I would highly recommend it! I never go to yoga classes at my gym because they are always at 11am or some time that I can’t make.
