Something I would really like to start discussing with everyone is the importance of rest days. You should be taking one at least every 3-4 days to ensure your body has time to rebuild everything we are working on in our WOD’s. Rest days don’t have to be spent on the couch, but shouldn’t be so “active” that you might as well count it as a WOD day. Read this article written by Nuno Costa at CrossFit Invictus about his views on rest days. I think he has a great perspective. More to come!
