If our body isn’t fully recovered before our next workout, our next workout will suffer – plus we risk injury.
We don’t need to be 100% but should be well-rested.
There’s a difference between being slightly tired and sore and being drained, exhausted, and hurt.
It’s a fine line. Know where we stand. Know the difference. Use our judgement.
If we aren’t rested and recovered, we can do more harm than good. It can be detrimental to our body and health.
If we need a break, rest. Take a day off. Fully recover. We’ll come back stronger, feeling better, and with more energy.
If we decide to train, consider cutting our workout short, cross-training, or an active recovery.
