Mike living up to his namesake, showing off some immense will power to complete Monday’s workout. Nice job brother.

Rest Days
How do we know that we are getting all that we can out of each workout? Sure we know that we can lift more than we could a few months ago and that our “Fran” time is faster. That is a sure sign that we are fitter, but are we doing everything that we can? We definitely eat well, relative to all of the other folks out there plodding away, hitting the mickey D’s 3 times a week. But what about our days off? There are two types of rest days for us to consider; active and inactive rest days. On active rest days you should be out doing something fun, but not overly stressful on the body. On inactive rest days, you should be in full relax mode, maybe hitting up some hot springs or some mobility work. One thing that both days have in common, they should be mentally relaxing. Another thing is that you should be sleeping as much as you can make happen.

With the new addition of the competition team, I wanted to remind you all that with all of the additional work that you are doing, you need to make sure that you have a lifestyle that supports your growth. Whether you like it or not, you are now athletes. Treat yourself like it, make sure that you make the most of your rest days as it will ensure the greatest adaptation from work days behind you as well as giving you the strength to destroy the workouts that are coming up. Now, go sleep it off, you will be stronger for the effort.
