Making Shift Happen

26. How to Know When to Take a Rest Day or Train

Jul 12, 2021 | Podcast | 0 comments

Do you know when to take a rest day or train? While rest days are important to your overall progress, you may not know when or how to determine if you should take a rest day. In this episode, I outline 5 simple tips to help guide you to decide if it’s better for a rest day or to train.

Here are other episodes you may find helpful, one of which I reference in the episode:

Be the first to learn about my #ShredStrong and #Moderation365 program launches + join my newsletter to never miss an update

In the coming months, I’ll release my periodized strength and conditioning program for mountain bikers, #ShredStrong. This is the same training program I follow myself, and it WORKS. I may be biased, but my athletes aren’t – they see PRs on their rides as well as crush their climbs.

In late 2021, I’ll also release my #Moderation365 nutrition program to help you learn how to navigate food and develop a healthier relationship with food that allows you to trust yourself.

Be the first to learn about these programs by joining my email list – I only email my list 1-2 times a month, and I’d love to have you join for my monthly tips on nutrition, fitness, and health.
