If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking that’s a little oxymoronic. If you’re active you’re necessarily not resting. This is why you don’t catch people doing sit ups while also napping. Immediately I thought it was yet another fitness misnomer.
And yet, it works. It beat my ass but I felt great yesterday and am feeling pretty good, albeit gloriously sore, today. Still, the idea of active rest makes me giggle a little bit.
