In the passive recovery section:

"Id mention that even with the benefits of active recovery, most coaches advocate and most athletes take at least one day per week of complete active recovery."

Solid article. Strong finish. And I don't think I even found any typos.

That was my take home point (personally), :"if you can't be calm about it - stay home." Ideally, I'd love to grease the groove so to speak, but my limited experience has taught me that I'm extremely bad at remaining calm whilst near the metal.

My 5/3/1 "deload"s slowly become heavily biased toward "soul-crushing" rather than "restorative", haha, until I learned to just stay away from strength and cut cardio down to at most 1/3 volume. Been seeing much better results since.

Recently I've acquired enough dignity to just do specific mobility stuff at home. No extra weight to think about loading myself with - no problem. All I have to do is resist the urge to move way too fast.

Dan John wrote something recently about this, how he doesn't believe in easy days anymore. Becuase if he goes to the gym, he loses control.

But he fails to realize that the problem isn't with easy days. It's with him. So he's better off just staying home.

Fun article. Likey. As a lazy person in the "brisk sofa" category, maybe I should take this to heart.

I do love me a good parenthetical statement.

Based on doing the generic bulking routine, how often does one best incorporate active rest days? One workout of upper and lower each per week?
