Sticking to my weekend theme of getting outside in the great outdoors, I’ve used a light jog to get my AM cardio done. Remember that your heart rate needs to be sticking at around 65–70% of your maximal level for optimized fat burning and to counteract catabolism. Something else to remember this weekend is that as your weight drops down, your macro calculations need to reflect that otherwise you’ll be overeating.
Use this weekend to let yourself recover adequately after a very intense training week, in preparation for an even more demanding one ahead. Recovery isn’t about not feeling sore; it’s about being physically able to outperform your previous best. This only happens when your endocrine system is healthy, your cortisol levels are well balanced and your CNS is fully replenished. This is the true definition of recovery!
