Make the most of your rest days

Help your body recover with these self-care strategies from pros.

Eat well and hydrate: “You should be feeding your body nutrient-dense foods, like lean proteins and veggies,” says Rosante. “And be sure to drink plenty of water.”

Use a foam roller: “Imagine knots on a rubber band�trigger points are like that, and exercising can inflame them,” notes Rosante. “Rolling out breaks them up so you cna move better.”

Walk around: “Long walks help increase blood flow to the muscles,” explains Rosante, “bringing oxygen to fix damaged tissue.”

Don’t binge on junk food: “A rest day is not a cheat day,” notes Holder.

Don’t stay up all night: “Sleep is key for your body to recover, repair�muscles, and reset the brain,” says Holder. “Not getting enough can increase food cravings and push your body into chronic stress mode, making it harder to meet your goals.”

Don’t train�duh!: Sounds simple, but it can be challenging. Proper rest optimizes the body for future workouts. And don’t worry: “No gains will be lost in one or even two days,” adds Jon-Erik Kawamoto, founder of JK Conditioning in Newfoundland, Canada. To put it another way: Namaste…in bed.
