Get educated on the ill effects that running for long distances as your sole form of exercise, on a consistent basis, can have on your metabolism. Women, especially, have a huge misconception about how to properly lose weight and get a proper physique.
Main takeaway: if you know any women whose primary goal is getting a “lean and toned” physique while still maintaining a normal diet, make them aware of this. They should be doing weight training (especially circuit training), not running themselves to death every day in combination with a starvation diet!
Seriously though, don’t do anything strenuous on your rest day. Or really anything at all.

Watch this video of former Navy SEAL turned coach Mark Divine, the creator of SealFIT and the “Unbeatable Mind” program, as he explains the different concepts of visualization.
Believe it or not, perception is literally reality. Knowing this, it follows that success originates from the mind.
To those who are saying, “Yeaaaah right, this is a bunch of bullshit,” I say to you, “Don’t knock it, til you’ve tried it, friend.” Envisioning true success (which itself must be practiced, you can’t just do it once and expect results) will improve your results and your life as a whole. It just will.
