#WorkoutWednesday: Rest Day Style

Happy Wednesday All!

I hope you all are having a great week! This is an untraditional #workoutwednesday post. While sticking to a plan and grinding 24/7 are great ways to achieve goals, I think rest days and listening to your body is also important.

After the past two workouts, I have noticed that my body is not just sore, but I am actually having sharp pains in my lower back and hip flexors. This is a huge indicator that it’s time to hit the breaks, and let my body rest. Therefore, I am not working out today, and that’s okay! Instead, I am still going to eat nutrient dense food, stretch a little, and hit the hay early.

But, if you are dying for a new workout, check out last week’s leg day!

Remember, your body isn’t a machine! And even if it was, machines break, too. Listen to your body, and take a rest day if you are noticing extra soreness or pain!

What’s you favorite recovery-day activity?
