It’s Friday! Which means we get to have our active rest weekend! The term “active rest” or “active recovery” applies to training schedules used by athletes. In the recent past, athletes were encouraged to rest completely after a competition or on a day off. But newer research shows that engaging in low-intensity exercise during “rest” is better for maintaining fitness levels. Low-intensity exercise flushes out lactic acid and delivers healing oxygen to the muscles. Any activity that keeps the target heart rate in the 60 – 65% range is low-intensity exercise. Active rest activities are easy recreational movements like going for a bike ride or a hike. So go out, enjoy this beautiful weather, you deserve a break! But first, hit this workout real hard!
