THURSDAY’S WORKOUT

ACTIVE REST & RECOVERY

SF_Insta_Tiles3
TODAY WE WOULD LIKE YOU ALL TO PERFORM AN ACTIVE REST RECOVERY WORKOUT OF YOUR CHOICE FOR 45 MINUTES.

AN ACTIVE REST DAY WILL ALLOW YOUR BODY TO CONSOLIDATE THE HARD WORK YOU’VE BEEN DOING. MUSCLES RECOVER, ADAPT AND BECOME STRONGER AND YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM HAS A CHANCE TO REGENERATE. 

INCLUDING APPROPRIATE REST IN YOUR TRAINING PROGRAMME CAN ALSO HELP TO PREVENT A WORKOUT PLATEAU OR OVERTRAINING, WHICH CAN ALSO LEAD TO A WORKOUT HANGOVER. 

SOME EXAMPLES OF ACTIVE RECOVERY ARE: 

  • SWIMMING 
  • YOGA 
  • WALKING OR JOGGING 
  • CYCLING 

FOR YOUR STEADY STATE WORKOUT YOU SHOULD AIM TO BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN A CONVERSATION FOR THE DURATION OF YOUR WORKOUT. IF YOU WEAR A WATCH OR HEART RATE MONITOR, AIM TO KEEP YOUR HEART RATE BETWEEN 120 – 150 BEATS PER MINUTE. 

WE HAVE ATTACHED A PODCAST FOR YOU TO LISTEN TO DURING YOUR ACTIVE RECOVERY SESSION.

HAVE AN AMAZING DAY EVERYONE!
