Recovery is a critical component in an effective exercise regimen. And by that, we do not mean staying horizontal on the bed all day long (although nobody’s judging if that’s what you want to do!). Active recovery means replacing your regular high-intensity workout with another less intense form of movement, such as yoga. Incorporating active recovery in your fitness routine means your muscles not only gets time to rest, but also delays the onset of muscle soreness. More importantly, active recovery prevents strain injuries and bolsters the immune system. Besides, a little variety can’t possibly hurt anyone and we can’t be hitting hard all the time. So, allow your body time to rest, recover and get superfit.glow.
