Day 3. Rule 3. Take at least 1 (or two) days off from hard training each week. Walking or yoga are fine.
If you read yesterday’s post, you know my wife (46) and I (53) like to workout a lot. So we sometimes have to force ourselves to take days off, knowing that too much exercise can become a for of stress on its own.
We have 3 teenage boys and work full time, so sports and school and work all create stress that can add up. Rule 3 can be easier said than done. But substituting some yoga for a strength and conditioning workout can be a perfect sub. We like Rodney Yee and some of the stuff in the beachbody app.
