Workout Summary

Not all your workouts have to be high intensity, circuit style training sessions.

While most athletes enjoy pushing their bodies to the limit, recovery is 50% of the equation when training for results.

Performance and aesthetic based training needs to have equal emphasis on recovery as it does on harder workouts. The Battle Ball Recoup & Recover Workout is the perfect choice to perform on an off day, between intense workouts, or even as a cool down or warmup to a harder session.

The Medicine Ball Recoup & Recover Workout will alleviate soreness, correct imbalances, and improve work capacity.

Workout Instructions

Perform as many reps as possible in 30 seconds. Do not rush through the movement, this workout is not for time. Perform all exercises in a slow-controlled manner. Rest as needed between movements and between groups as possible. If increased aerobic capacity is the goal, rest as little as possible during the workout.
