Are you crushing it in the gym, day after day pushing your body to new limits? Are you hitting the gym 5-7 days a week just because you love the WOD posted or feel so good, why not? Are you hitting so many PR's that your name is always on the PR board!
We are thrilled that you are making so many strides in your fitness but we also know that rest and recovery is extremely important for your long term performance and goals.
I know, but you still want to come to the gym, you feel better after you get moving and will take a rest day tomorrow. Does this sound like you?
If so we have a solution. Take 1-2 days a week for and use them as an active recovery with the below WOD. This is a Jason Khalipa staple that he uses when he wants athletes to recover and stay fresh in their training.
Here it is:
EMOM for 20-40 minutes (you can pick)
Min 1 - Bike
Min 2 - Step Ups
Min 3 - Row
Min 4 - Skip
Min 5 - Plank
As a recovery, this is meant to be at 50-60% effort.
Now on the flip side if you are looking to get some extra cardio in your life you can use this exact workout at 80% effort and get your SWEAT on!
Give it a try next time you are feeling sore but still want to hit the gym.
