Post-workout recovery: listen to your body

Sufficient rest time is crucial in order to reach your goals

Welcome to week six of our eight-week fitness challenge. We are well over the halfway point. If you have got this far you should congratulate yourself.

This week we will be discussing post-workout recovery and the importance of it for your body.

Is recovery really that important?

No matter how fit you are and no matter what type of training you have a passion for, be it running, cycling, swimming, weight training or anything else, your body will need to recover.
