There's plenty you can do outside of the box to complement the work you're doing in class, and active recovery days are the best time for taking advantage. Endurance, flexibility, strength training...we've got suggestions that cover all bases. If you want to work on endurance... Running is a great way to build up your stamina. Choose whether you want to go for time or for speed, and then head on out the door. A good run outdoors buys you some fresh air and a change of scenery. For an added challenge, find a steep hill to incorporate into your workout. Or sign up for an obstacle run with some of your gym buddies. If you want to work on flexibility. Yoga can help you become more limber, which helps with the gymnastics we do in class, and ultimately the range of motion that is crucial to your lifts. And, it comes with the added bonus of total relaxation. The different asanas (poses) will stretch every part of your body, and with so many styles of yoga to choose from, you're sure to find one you like. If heading to a studio isn't your thing, find a video online or use an app and do it at home. Daily stretching is another great one to add into your routine. Just ask a coach for some ideas if you're unsure. If you want to work on strength training. Everyday tasks that you probably don't think twice about help build your strength. Next time you go grocery shopping, pack your bags as heavy as you can without risking them breaking, park the car a little further away, and carry in as many bags as possible in one trip. Alternatively, find a sturdy backpack and fill it with anything that will add weight to it. Then walk around with it on. Instant weight vest. What are your favorite things to do on active recovery days.
