3.30.13 ARWOD

Active Recovery

  • 20-30 minutes of light-moderate cardio of your choice (optional)
  • 15-20 minutes of foam rolling

Foam rolling is a great (but slightly painful) method to get rid of soreness by breaking up lactic acid buildup in the muscles.

Do 20-30 rolls over each muscle group (here’s a great look at how to do this): quads, glutes, calves, hamstrings, upper back, lower back, piriformis, ubulus…. it’s boring but it’s part of my life.

Utilize this active recovery day to get rid of any soreness buildup from this week’s workouts. You’re going to need the mobility on Easter Sunday when you’re throwing those little kids out of the way to get to the eggs.
