Saturday 7 August – Rest Day


REST DAY

The funny thing about rest days is, who really gets any rest?? Our rest days are more along the lines of active recovery, i.e. stretching and moving about. Another HUGE thing to remember on rest/active recovery days is to eat right! Taking time away from daily workouts isn’t enough, you have to eat right in order for your muscles and joints to recover.

AskMen.com wrote an article on the top 10 post-workout recovery foods. The number one winner was 1% chocolate milk! YESSSS… love that stuff! Number three was a peanut butter and honey sandwich. Back in high school I wrestled and in order for me to wrestle in the 112lb class (yes you read that right) I had to cut down from 115lbs. This alone was completely draining, and after weigh-ins at the meets we would hog out on bread and honey for some energy.                                                                                                                           Here is the article: Top 10: Recovery Foods It has a lot of useful information, too.

Who knew?

Speaking of active recovery, work on your double unders this weekend.

    Went to the Y for some lifting. Body weight bench press and practiced some push jerks. Did much better. Threw some toes to bars in and finished with dips. Good “rest day!”
