She Is Careful And Strategic

After a nasty elbow injury that forced her out of the 2021 CrossFit Games, Wells has become more careful and strategic about her moves in this year's competition. Almost a year after the injury happened, Brooke shared a post showing how "stoked" she was to do a clean 247-pound deadlift. She also reminded everyone that it is much smarter not to push the body to its limits and risk injury.

"remember to stay in your lane if you’re in a similar situation! maxing out is SO FUN in the moment (for a few minutes), but is it worth the possibility of a set back (for days/weeks) 🤍" she wrote on the Instagram caption.

She Has A Positive Mindset

Despite the physical limitations, Brooke remained positive throughout the ordeal. She underwent reconstructive surgery and shared her journey with her fans, who were all rooting for her fast recovery.

In a previous Instagram post, Brooke shared an update on her elbow recovery and expressed that she was set on turning her tough situation into a positive, learning experience.

"This process has been an incredible experience for me. I can feel myself growing through it and I’m absolutely committed to making this injury the best thing that has ever happened to me. 💪🏻"

She Takes Sleep Supplements

Getting enough sleep is essential to recovery and Brooke made sure that she gets quality shut-eye by taking a supplement with sleep-enhancing vitamins and minerals.

According to Sleep, sleep aids in muscle growth and recovery, making it a crucial tool for an athlete's rehabilitation. During sleep, the body produces growth hormones and repairs cells, tissues, and more. Athletes are advised to have seven to nine hours of sleep every night, while elite athletes need nine hours or more.

She Stretches A Lot

To make sure the muscles are warm and ready to work, Brooke starts her exercises by stretching. This is especially important for those who are just recovering from injury.

Flexibility is just as important as strength training and muscle building. Without regular stretching, the muscles become tight and weak, which makes the body at risk for joint pain and muscle damage.

She Has Clear Goals

Brooke laid out her goals early in her rehabilitation to make sure her path to recovery was clear. Aside from working on her body, she also made certain that her mental health was in great shape.

"my goal for the season this year is to have my body be the healthiest ever physically (no nagging injuries) & peak in the later stages of the season!," she said in an Instagram post. "no expectations, just doing MY best."
