I have been enlightened to something called active recovery workouts. Nothing earth shattering- basically every 6-8 weeks based upon how im feeling, I will force myself to take a week (5 days plus weekends which I never train) to do a deload/light active recovery workout twice a week.. Like on Tuesday and thurs or fri.
This is big for ME, coming from the more is better mentally, which I am slowly but surely changing. Just wondering if anyone else does similar things, and what workouts/types of lifts you recommend.. I'm thinking two full body workouts with just some light walking and minimal Ab work. I might also throw in a day of yoga or some extreme stretching. If I'm inactive too Manu days in a row, I go nuts!
