HIKE CARDIO: EASY
The day after you hammer your legs in the gym is the MOST IMPORTANT cardio day in the week!!! Your muscles are tired, torn and stiff. Hike Cardio: Easy is the no-backpack, low intensity “stroll” up the mountain that is designed to get blood flow into the sore muscles and loosen them up. (HIKE CARDIO: HARD is for tomorrow).
This is not a day to push or kill yourself. It’s a brisk hike, with long strides and controlled steps. Stretching before and after your workout will enhance recover time and reduce stiffness. Drink a ton of water and NEVER skip this day, or else… Feed your SALOMON SPEEDCROSS— they deserve it.
