What is active recovery? Active recovery is low intensity activity designed to flush your sore muscles with blood thereby accelerating the healing process for sore muscles. If you’ve never done it before you’ll surprised to see how much it accelerates recovery compared to doing nothing. If you’re doing the challenge and today is day #4 in a row resist the urge to come in and go hard. Instead take it easy. Go for 30 straight minutes and then do one or two of the sessions from MobilityWOD.com like the one above.
