Embrace movement-based recovery and get results
You don’t need to be working out and training hard every day to reach your fitness goals. In fact, doing so would be counterintuitive, since our bodies need time to rest and regenerate for optimum results. Your muscles need to be able to repair and slower forms of movement are also beneficial for managing stress levels.
Recovery and regeneration should be an important part of any fitness regime. Having 1-2 days of active rest a week is recommended for best results.
