Tuesday Attitude: Between

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.” -Etty Hillesum

In the myriad interpretations of this quote , be sure to include “The most important part of your fitness/workout/training program are the Rest/Recovery days.” Give those legs and arms a break. Feel what it’s like, the enjoyment, liberation, intensity, when you workout on fresh legs at CF!

    I can attest to this. Prior to adapting to a “rest when needed” schedule, I would often train 6 days on, 1 day off or sometimes every day doing some sort of planned exercise. In the fall, however, I began a strength program which required rest if I were to improve my lifts. Since doing that, I rest at least 2 days a week or whenever I feel my performance is lacking. Take into consideration that your muscles are being broken down over and over again, they need time to recover and build.
