workout of the day WOD

“That which yields is not always weak.”
– Jacqueline Carey

The athlete who never takes a break is destined to breakdown. Healing is a key ingredient in fitness gains – training wears you down, recovery is what builds you up stronger than when you started.

Active recovery is the process of letting yourself heal from previous workouts, not by sitting still, but by moving. Stretching is one of the best forms of active recovery while alternative forms include: low intensity swimming, jogging, or cycling.

Suggestions for Active Recovery

  • For every hour you spend at a desk, stretch 5-10 minutes.
  • Participate in a walk-in yoga class.
  • Invest your energy in procuring and cooking wholesome and nutritious foods.
