No days off. It’s an idea I’m borrowing from Kelly Starrett. Some say I’ve already been living it, but as it pertains to fitness and performance, I want to share it with all of you. No days off does not mean no rest days. Quite the contrary, rest and recovery are key to continued progress. No days off means that even on the days you’re not working out you’re still working on improving yourself for tomorrow. Spend 5 to 10 minutes on mobility and soft tissue work, dial in your nutrition with some food prep, get 8 hours of sleep. We’ve discussed rest day best practices in this space before.
As I’ve mentioned, big things are coming. Whether you’re planning on competing this year or not, we are all a part of the CrossFit Fenway team, and we all need to support each other. Let’s work together, keep each other going forward, and make 2011 a year with no days off.
