REST IS A WEAPON – use it!

Especially if you guys are doing intense workouts, your rest periods and recovery days are the times that your body adjusts to the stresses you have put it under and gets stronger. It’s desperately hard to have the discipline not to train really hard, or take a session or two off, but I promise you’ll notice the difference if you do. Your training should have a ‘cyclic’ nature about it – train, train harder, train hardest, recover… repeat.

There is no way the body can improve if it doesn’t recover at some point.

We had a great rest day today! 🙂 My husband, son and I went for a long walk, to the park, I got to lay out at the pool for the first time in awhile (I have to get tan before our cruise next month!). Now I’m more then ready to get back to the gym tomorrow!

  1. Rest days can be the toughest mental challenge! I like your “work hard, harder, hardest” methodology 🙂
