R.E.S.T. DAY……aka- Stay at home and think about working out. But believe it or not taking 1-2 rest days a week is part of the process. I love getting in the groove with my workouts and I'm having so much fun that I want to do it everyday. But I know that it's so important to take a day off from strenuous exercise. WHY? Because when you are working out tiny tears are forming in your muscles. These tears are good though. But they require rest to repair and that''s how we get stronger, fitter and leaner! You can be lightly active on your rest day by going for a walk, riding a bike or do your grocery shopping. These things will quicken your recovery! Plus, it helps to keep those muscles loose and moving.
