Day 58: Rest Day

20 Minutes of Rowing For Maximum Distance

The great thing about training for CrossFit is that there is always something that you can do on a "rest" day that is easy on the body. I have yet to have a day where I do absolutely ZERO physical activity in over 3 months. I don't know if its a good thing or a bad thing but I am seeing good results from this. Try it out. Rather than do nothing on a given rest day, try jogging or rowing for 20-30 minutes or something else that is relatively low intensity compared to the average WOD. I have noticed that it will help in my recovery much better than taking the day completely off. What do you think about rest days?
