I know rest days are important for recovery. But HOW should I spend those days? And are there other activities I can add into my daily/weekly routine to help me maximize my results?
Recovery isn’t just taking a day off every now and again. Recovery can be viewed as everything outside of your training sessions themselves. How well your body recovers is determined by stress, hydration, nutrition, sleep, and muscle recovery exercises. Making a conscious effort to maximize recovery allows you to get the most out of your last exercise session and to get the most out of the next one.
In other words:
What you do BETWEEN your workouts determines what you get FROM your workouts.
