Heather Jackson | Why Recovery is Essential for Triathletes

recovery for triathletesHeather Jackson is a professional triathlete out of Bend, Oregon. Competing or participating in triathlons requires a great deal of training and dedication. What many triathletes don’t realize is that recovery is a crucial component of the process.

Why Recovery is Important for Triathletes

  1. Consistency- When your body is fully recovered, you can train at your maximum capacity and feel good while doing it. If you focus on speeding up your recovery, you can train every day at your highest level.
  2. Progression- Being consistent in your triathlon training allows you to progress week after week, month after month. The progression may take time, but keep putting in the effort and the results will follow.
  3. Injury Prevention- In order to be consistent and progress, athletes need to stay injury free. By allowing your body to fully recover, you drastically decrease the chance of an overuse or fatigue related injury from setting in.

How Can Marc Pro Help Triathletes?

Marc Pro speeds the recovery process so triathletes can get back to training faster. Marc Pro allows for a full recovery between training sessions by using active recovery techniques. Unlike other methods or traditional active recovery, Marc Pro won’t cause any fatigue or break muscles down.  Over 100 professional teams and countless elite athletes choose Marc Pro because of its effectiveness.

“It’s been just this progression for the past 2-3 years and improvement in my results from being able to recover better after each training session and then follow all that up day after day. So for me, recovery, thanks to my Marc Pro, has been huge the past 3 years.”

Being an Ironman champion, Heather knows how important recovery is in the sport of triathlon. Bottom line, “if you’re not recovered, you’re not going to be performing your best, you’re going to be fatigued, you’re not going to be getting the most out of yourself, you’re also going to be opening yourself up for injury.” Heather Jackson uses her Marc Pro during her downtime to ensure she is fully recovered and ready to go for the next raining session or race.
