We recently caught up with one of our brand ambassadors, Rasmus Andersen, to chat about how CBD has fit into his lifestyle, what’s coming up for him and what he has been up to recently.
Rasmus is a well-known Crossfit Games athlete. The Crossfit Games are the world’s premier fitness tests in which the winner is deemed the fittest athlete in the world. Rasmus has already competed in 5 Games with many more to come. In 2018, he finished 8th individually. In 2019, he and his team of Lauren Fischer, Tommy Vinas and Reagan Huckaby finished 3rd at the Team Games. Pretty great we must say.
We partnered up with Rasmus about a year ago and ever since then, he has used CBD to give him an advantage in his recovery, sleep and lifestyle. He has become a big advocate for CBD in the Crossfit world, and an important brand ambassador for Rejuvia.
We asked Rasmus to give us a rundown on everything he has been doing recently. Here’s what he had to say…
On what he’s been doing since the Holidays…
“I was traveling a lot over the holidays. [I visited] Nicaragua, Argentina, Colombia and Denmark. I got back mid-January and since then I’ve been dialing in my nutrition back in order to lose some weight and lean out for upcoming competitions. Besides that, wedding planning [with fiancé Lauren Fischer] is taking up quite a bit of my spare time right now which is great.”
On where he usually trains…
“I typically train at Invictus in downtown San Diego. We have a good group of people training together and it’s always a good amount of fun. It creates a very competitive environment, which is great for good quality training.”
On his recovery protocol…
“I always finish my sessions with a protein and carbohydrate shake. If it was an extra hard session I take some CBD right after my session as well to help calm [me] down and get back to normal. When I have sore muscles, I apply CBD balm on those specific areas. It smells good, but I feel like it helps release some of the soreness as well. Beside that I use a sauna and ice baths a few times a week and try to get bodywork once a week.”
On how CBD fits into his lifestyle…
“I take CBD drops every night! That’s my number one supplement priority at night. Not only does it help me fall asleep, but I also get a deeper and better sleep. I’m experimenting with other CBD products such as softgels and lotion, and so far I’m super happy with the results. I didn’t know about CBD until about a year ago, but it has become a game changer!
On the benefits he gets from CBD…
“The main effect that I receive from taking CBD is the ability to calm down. It helps me with my soreness and inflammation as well, but where I see the most results is when it comes to my sleep and the ability to relax after an intense workout.”
On what’s next for him…
“My next competition is in Dubai at the end of March. After that I have a few more in the pipeline, but these aren’t confirmed yet. However there should a good amount of competitions coming up soon, so very excited about that!”
Rasmus is looking forward to continue to introduce Hemp CBD to the Crossfit world. He is definitely a pioneer, but is enjoying the benefits of CBD day after day. Keep following along with our blog to hear about his future competitions!
Rejuvia recently joined forces with CrossFit Games athlete Rasmus Andersen. Rasmus decided to sign on with Rejuvia to be an ambassador and a new pathway to bring hemp CBD into the CrossFit world.
CrossFit and CBD
There are numerous CrossFit athletes nowadays that use hemp CBD to their advantage. The CrossFit world has always been keen on athletic performance and recovery, and hemp CBD is now part of that picture. There are numerous other athletes who have decided to partner with CBD brands across the country, but in CrossFit, Rasmus is one of the biggest names in the sport to decide to sign on with a CBD company. We are so happy he decided that Rejuvia is a company Rasmus believes in and supports.
Rasmus Andersen and CBD
With the new explosion of CBD usage in CrossFit and other sports across the country, Rejuvia is thrilled to partner with one of the best athletes in the country to spread the power of hemp even further. Not all athletes are ready to add hemp CBD into their daily routine, so we are incredibly proud that Rasmus took that step and is being a huge advocate for CBD and CrossFit.
Based out of CrossFit Invictus, Rasmus is elevating his performance to new heights and consistently using CBD as he does so. This August, Rasmus competed in the team CrossFit Games and earned a spot on the podium with a 3rd place finish. Yep, 3rd place. That’s a pretty big deal.
Rasmus says, “I started taking (Rejuvia) because I had trouble falling asleep and after taking it for a while, I can highly recommend it to anyone who has the same issue.”
How Does Ras Use Rejuvia?
In the Gym: Rasmus uses Rejuvia typically post-workout and at night before going to sleep. It fits perfectly into his active lifestyle.
On the go: You can find Rasmus taking his hemp CBD with him wherever he goes. Easy to carry and pack, Rejuvia is the perfect travel buddy.
Tinctures: Our peppermint tincture is his favorite and he uses it at night after a long day of training. There is nothing more important for recovery than sleep.
More Accomplishments of Rasmus
Ras has competed in five total CrossFit Games. You can think of the CrossFit Games as the Super Bowl of CrossFit. In 2018, he finished as high as 8th, which means he’s is in the top-ten of fittest men on the planet. He also finished 3rd in the 2019 team CrossFit Games. Needless to say, he’s pretty good at what he does.
