Sounds like there are a lot of sore and tired bodies this week. That's great, but that also means it may be time to take a rest day. Sure, getting moving again does help ease soreness by getting blood flow to the affected areas, but that doesn't mean you need to go all out with a high intensity workout. In fact, you may not be able to do your best in a workout if you're overdue for a rest day, which sort of defeats the purpose of doing CrossFit. The goal is high intensity to create change. Rest days are days where you're NOT taxing your muscles, joints and nervous system with the intensity that is required of CrossFit workouts. They are an important piece of the puzzle that makes up "CrossFit Training" and every body needs them regularly. For those of you that feel that rest days are a wasted day, then think about how you can RX your rest day. It doesn't mean you have to sit on the couch and do nothing all day. You can definitely do that, but you don't have to. Here are some ideas on how to make the most of your rest days!
Workout of the Day
Hand Stand Push Ups
Power Cleans (185/125)
You'll start with 3 reps of each movement, then go to 6, 9, 12, adding 3 of each movement until time runs out.
