As someone who’s been putting in consistent effort with your CrossFit training regime, you should now be noticing some significant improvements taking place. While most people are quick to notice the outer physical changes that are occurring, few stop to realize the physical capability progress they are making or consider the changes taking place inside their body.
Let’s take a quick peek at what’s happening right now as you continue with your ongoing effort with your CrossFit workout routine.
First, above all else, if you’ve been training hard, you should be noticing some significant improvements in your overall strength level. Gone are the days carrying a bag of groceries into the house felt like a challenge or, depending on your strength, lifting a couch to move it across the room.
Now you should be finding that everyday tasks just feel easier and this is due to the increased muscular power behind you.
Your Muscular Endurance
In addition to more muscular power, also notice your muscular endurance level improve. Because CrossFit sessions are so physically demanding and have you going full out with little rest, you’ll be noticing that you don’t fatigue as easily throughout the day either.
You can perform strenuous tasks for a longer period of time. While you used to feel tired quickly, now you should be noticing a significant improvement in how long it takes to you reach that point of fatigue.
Your Balance And Agility
Because CrossFit sessions incorporate many different exercises that will target your balance and agility, you should see some transfer over benefits into your real life as well.
You should find that you simply feel more ‘on top of yourself’ throughout the day. You don’t lose balance as easily and you’re more agile as you perform various movements.
If you happen to perform recreational or competitive sports, you should be noticing a significant benefit in your performance as well.
Your Insulin Sensitivity
On the inside of your body, chance is taking place as well. One major change you should be proud of is the fact that you are seeing increased levels of insulin sensitivity occurring. This means that your body is better able to deal with any carbohydrates you eat from fruits for example, shuttling those nutrients into the muscle tissues, rather than storing them as body fat.
This will also help to lower your risk of diabetes as well.
Your Blood Pressure
Finally, don’t overlook the positive benefits on your blood pressure. As your system has become much more fit over the last few weeks, your heart won’t have to work as heart to pump blood all around your body.
Your circulation will have improved and your heart health will be significantly enhanced.
So as you can see, there are many positive changes taking place in your body right now. Keep up your effort and these will only continue to expand.
