Active Recovery - Low Intensity

Bike / Swim / Row / Run / Sled Drag / Prowler Push

30:00 Minutes

Active recovery focuses on completing a workout at a low intensity, but just high enough that it gets the blood moving and helps reduce residual fatigue in the muscle. On a recovery day, running at a low intensity for a short duration such as less than sixty minutes or riding for less than 75 minutes can help speed recovery. Besides running or riding, you can try out other activities for crosstraining. For endurance athletes looking to spice up their training, try out rock climbing, going for a walk in a park, cross-country skiing, or getting on the dreaded elliptical machine.
