Recovery Day.

Recovery is about pro-actively speeding up your recovery. This involves getting blood flowing, massage, ART, active recovery, mobility work, foam rolling, yoga, compression, voodoo flossing and anything else that might promote recovery. The activity selected must be restorative for you. It can also be an opportunity to work on a skill, but the effort expended should leave you feeling energized at the end of the session, not depleted. Get some blood flowing to aid in your recovery. 

A.) Movement:
