Maybe you’ve just started CrossFitting. Maybe you’ve been going at it for a few months. That last workout was brutal, wasn’t it? It probably left your legs/arms/abs/back feeling like rubber.
Should you take a day to rest? It depends.
If you’ve worked out 3 days in a row and you’re super sore, ya, take a rest day. If you’ve only been in once or twice this week, you have no excuse.
Sound harsh? It isn’t. If you’ve done a workout that left a body part unusable, we can tailor a workout for you that will target other body parts. For instance, let’s say the workout is 21-15-9 reps of pullups and pushups. If your arms are toast, it’s easy to substitute squats and lunges. Even if you’re injured, we can still modify the workout.
So as you see, there really is no good excuse for missing a workout due to soreness. Get in here and get moving!
