How’s the sugar crash?

Posted: March 11, 2012 by Jason in WODs

So since the Paleo challenge ended yesterday I am assuming you all rushed to Dutch Bros. and grabbed blue rebel energy drinks blended with some delicious torani syrups. I know I did!!! With that said, you are all probably feeling a little under the weather. For those who remained strong, more power to ya!

I want to go into a topic debating what rest really means. The importance of rest cannot be overlooked. If you train and train and train but do not listen to your body when it says enough is enough you will be doing more harm than good. CrossFit prescribes 3 days on 1 day off. If you are going as hard as possible in the gym you should be extremely sore by that 3rd day. Now with that said, what does rest consist of? is it sitting on your couch all day watching movie? NO! I like to use the term Active Rest. On your rest days you should go out and atleast walk around, keep the blood flowing. Go on a run, ride a bike, swim, play a sport! Get off the couch and have some fun!

then handstand hold…..find a wall and hold a handstand in the locked out position for as long as possible. You can have your back facing the wall or your stomach. either way.
