Active Recovery (ARWOD = Active Recovery Workout Of the Day)
- 20-30 minutes of light-moderate cardio of your choice (optional)
- 20-40 minutes of yoga
Active recovery days are fairly flexible. Pretty much anything that elevates your heart rate for 20-30 minutes will do. Hehe. Hehe.
I like to do intervals on the treadmill or stationary bike.
As for the 2nd part of the recovery, you read correctly. Yes, I said yoga. According to this article, by the website One Result, yoga’s benefits include “faster recovery, greater flexibility, and increased strength.” YEAH SCIENCE! YEAH BITCH! In addition, it provides a great mental catharsis and leaves you feeling extremely refreshed and ready to take on the day.
I usually do the 20 minute routine on the “Simply Yoga” app for iPhone. Seriously.
