You've seen many "Rest" challenges over the months but this is such an important, nay essential, part of a healthy fitness program--so here's another chance to take good care of ourselves. Starting now, build in one full rest day into your workout week. Plan your schedule carefully to accommodate daily activity in all domains of your life--those demands may not be restful! R U up for this?

Rest and Recovery Challenge rules

  1. Starting now, build in one FULL rest day into your workout week. Plan your schedule carefully to accommodate all the demands in your busy life.
  2. If you can't kick back and unwind yet, at least build in a super-easy day that requires very little physical and mental effort.
  3. Monitor your progress and performance--a daily log or journal is a great way to do this!
  4. Consider joining the Relax and Recover Tribe--let us know how/what you're doing :)
  5. Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.

Recent advice

“Started this last month by having a super-easy day each week. This month its a full rest day per week and I really enjoy that day...often indulging in a bubble bath and similar pampering...and spending the day relaxing with my kids and watching movies.”

Bridget C Rest and Recovery Challenge

Contributorgold Bridget C This is absolutely a habit now, I used to always pack my exercise rest days with a huge list of things to get done but I now make sure every week I give myself a true day off from all bar the bare minimum and don't feel guilty about taking the rest, I work hard for it the other days!

Bridget C Rest and Recovery Challenge

Contributorgold Bridget C Great challenge for me as I normally spend my exercise rest day busy catching up on household/social stuff so this week I planned today as a real rest day with minimum responsibilities and will do my best to keep it up each week :)

Contributorgold Carol Ann B going to make my rest day a Saturday each week.. partly because our family schedule is too busy for me to fit in any exercise.. but mostly because I can relax on Saturday evenings watching 'Strictly come dancing' soon.. oh yeah!!
