What is the difference between “Recovery Days” and “Rest Days?”
Rest is just that – nothing. Relax, veg-out, hang with the family, watch tv and generally get off your feet. Rest is important both mentally and physically.
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.
