A planned recovery and down time are important to real lasting fitness progress.
1) Schedule “down” weeks and recovery workouts
The recovery process should be proactive, planned and effectively executed. It’s important to remember that you break your body down when you train and your body is in a fatigued state. A lack of proper recovery can lead to overtraining otherwise known as under-recovery or over-reaching. Building fatigue upon fatigue results in the inability to adequately adapt, resulting in more fatigue, inflammation, missed lifts and shitty workouts.
2) Ample recovery time between workouts
Ensure you have 24-72 hours rest between intense workouts. Less rest is needed between sub-maximal workouts ( Like Lite Cardio or Yoga).
It has been shown that lack of adequate sleep can decrease the reduce tolerance to training, alter mood, increase perception of fatigue and negatively affect the physiological mechanisms responsible for adaptation from the stresses of training and normal life!

Dehydration can reduce performance potential, the minimum amount of water intake per day for males is 3.7L/day and 2.7L/day for females. Individuals can intake more but never less than these amounts.
5) Eat Well
