Recovery + Cardio Suggestions:
On Saturdays and Sundays, if you’re feeling beat up from the week of crazy workouts, do yourself a favor and…
Foam Roll each major body part (quads, lats, hamstrings, calves, back) for about 30 seconds each.
2. Take a nice long walk to get the blood flowing to all of those sore muscles to help loosen them up.
3. Take an epsom salt bath.
4. Supplement with turmeric (and black pepper for absorption).
5. Get a full 8+ hours of sleep every night!
On the other hand… If by the weekend, you’re feeling like you have some more time on your hands and you’re wanting to keep moving, here’s some cardio suggestions:
- Low Intensity Steady State: keeping your heart rate down enough to where you could have a conversation on the phone while you exercise and be fine. You should be able to hold your pace for 45 minutes to an hour.
Examples of this would be: Stairmaster, Incline Walk, Beach Walk, Elliptical, Bike, etc. as long as your heart rate stays out of those higher intensity zones and you don’t feel winded.
