Why Rest Days Are Important

Have you ever worked so hard that you left the gym feeling utterly drained? Or waking up the next morning feeling sore, hardly able to walk? We’ve all been there.


And usually, we assume this full-body exhaustion means we had a good workout - but this is NOT true. Exhaustion, muscle soreness, and lack of energy mean something else: Your body is in recovery mode. Recovering from what? Inflammation.


Yes, hard workouts cause inflammation. After getting into ‘high gear’ during exercise, it's your body's natural response. And it is VERY important to allow your body to get the rest it needs to recover. Otherwise, you can risk injury, poor immunity, and more severe health risks.


So, whether you do heavy weightlifting or jogging or even walking, make sure to get the rest and recovery you need. This will help you ‘recoup’ from your heavy workouts and exercise. Plus, will help you stay healthy in the long-term for maximum performance!
