Workout Notes from Candice (our programmer this week):
- Push that Sprint. Push the burpees and squat like its hot! You do get a full 60 seconds of rest ya know.
- Keep that chest up on those squats. Keep your form. Sometimes when those reps start climbing and we are going for speed, we have a tendency to bow more and squat less. Chin up, chest high y'all.
- Modify the sprint by using the row/bike/elliptical.
- Its been a while since we have done this one. Go check out the comments from the last time, they are actually quite entertaining.
Calories on REST days?
I get this question often, "If I'm not working out should I eat less?"
Rest days are commonly only 1-2 times a week. We rest so our bodies can recover, but we also need fuel (calories, vitamins, minerals & other nutrients) to fully recharge.
We may be burning fewer calories on rest day, but in order for our muscles to recover, we need adequate food and hydration. I suggest you eat all your normal meals, providing they are balanced. Doing so will make your workout the following day much stronger and more productive.
