Working In

Working In.

A concept I explored on a Bare 5 blog post a few months back. Recapturing energy through restorative and regenerative activities. Recharging our metaphorical battery.

In preparation for baby number three I am going to take a break from working out and focus more on resting, recovering and working in. I’ll still be active and post a few things here and there the next few months but nothing too structured.

As always, if I come across any cool workouts I’ll share them for anyone interested.
