Bodyweight Exercises for Cyclists: Rest
How to Rest:
Rest sounds good, right? It's quite enjoyable and it allows your body to recover so that it can come back stronger. It's surprising how many cyclists refuse to rest, but I might rest a little too much. ;)
If these bodyweight exercises are wearing you out, take some rest days! First, make sure you are getting at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Second, whenever you feel worn out, lie down on the couch and take a nap.
Why you should Rest:
Rest allows your muscles to rebuild and get stronger. Without rest, you can't improve! You also feel refreshed after you've had a good rest.
