Your body needs time to rest in between exercise sessions so that it can repair itself properly—and come back stronger. Plus, if all your body gets is physical stress without rest, you can reach the point of diminishing returns, or the point at which more exercise doesn’t result in any more progress.
Rest days are an essential part of any well rounded fitness program. They help your body recover from workouts and allow you to come back stronger for your next. But if you’re a go-hard-at-every-workout kind of person (like me), or you just hate the idea of taking a day completely off from exercise (also me), it can be actually be HARD to take a rest day! Active recovery workouts let you get in some activity while giving your muscles and joints the rest they need to bounce back stronger than ever. By performing an active recovery workout on your rest day, you can give your body a day off while giving your mind a refreshing mental break from vigorous workouts.
How Often Should I Take an Active Recovery Day?
If you’re training more than five days per week, or you just hate the idea of taking a day completely off from exercise, consider subbing out one of your weekly workouts for an active recovery day. If you’re currently training three or four times per week, you can turn a couple of your “off” days into active recovery days to keep building strength and aerobic fitness even when you’re not working at your hardest. That being said, complete Netflix and chill rest days (as well as sleep) are a worthy part of your training routine, too. There’s nothing wrong with taking days off completely, so don’t forget to listen to your body and give it a break when it needs one.
