Is it ok to gym on a rest day?
Did W3 R1 last night and enjoyed it. No aches or pains in legs today and feel like I want to exercise.
Would it be ok to go to the gym and get on the cross trainer, bike etc do you reckon ?
Or would a swim be a better idea ?
Yes you can do anything which doesn't have both your feet off the floor at the same time (i.e. little-to-no impact). The cross trainer is perfect.
Thanks so even though the legs will be doing a fair bit of movement on the cross trainer this is ok because there is no jarring action up the legs right ?
I'm not going to regret it tomorrow on W3 R2 am I?
Correct! I've been going to the gym on the cross-trainer in between my runs and felt no after affects. In fact, when I don't go, I feel more tired the next run!
If you read the guide to the plan healthunlocked.com/couchto5... it explains that non impact exercise on your rest days is beneficial.
Interesting read. Thanks.
new pains that go with it. I’m just wondering, is it ok to run at all on rest days or should you stick...
