Thursday, September 5
Love this post from Professor of Exercise Physiology Dr. Eddie Jo. He is pointing out the obvious, but we all get caught up in thinking we need to do more or take the right supplement when sometimes what we really need is some rest and recovery.
Read the full caption on the post for more information, but remember this quote, “Rest, or simply dialing it back, is just as important as training. In fact it is a part of training and should not be viewed exclusively from it.”
If you view your rest days and sleep as part of your training, you won’t get so worried about missing a workout or a day at the gym. It can be hard to be consistent during different times in your life, but taking some time off can be valuable.
Don’t beat yourself up over a missed day or two. Plan your rest days when you can, but if you can’t always plan ahead that’s ok. There’s always another day to train, but you have to make sure you are recovering so you can see your adaptations.
