This is my first posted rest day. I will do these every so often to remind us that we need to rest. Crossfit prescribes a 3 on, 1 off cycle at the most. There are many athletes that may slightly modify, sometimes 4 on, 1 off or 4 on, 2 off or 2 on, 1 off. The point is, you need to be taking rest days. If you’re following a Crossfit regimen of working out, your body needs it. If you find yourself in a lull, feeling that you have plateaued in your training, nutrition, etc…take a break. This is one of the hardest things for me to do as well, but incredibly necessary. If you haven’t rested in a while, or are feeling the “need” to. Then do it, no WOD, no cardio, no workout, nothing. Also eat some good fatty food, bacon, steak, avocado, ice cream? yummy.

Crossfit works. It works specifically because of it’s “relative intensity”. Watch this great video and hear one of our founders, Coach Glassman, speak about this “intensity”.
