If you’re a competitive person or athlete, chances are you’re training plenty hard. Even if you’re just getting started, you probably think going hard will get you results. But if you’re not thinking about recovery strategies, then you won’t be able to take your performance to the next level. We’re not just talking about sleep, good nutrition, and massage. It’s even important to rest during your workout.
miCoach’s Blue Zone is engineered to deliver this crucial active recovery. In the Blue Zone, you’ll slow to a point where your body can recover—and that’s why it’s so important.
The Blue Zone is a break for your muscles. By resting at strategic times while you work, you’ll be in a position to work harder when the plan calls for it, achieve more results, and be more likely to sustain that success.
miCoach workouts call for the Blue Zone when you warm up, cool down, or need to recover between bursts of high-intensity intervals. They’re also used as a long workout after a previous hard day.
Over the course of a miCoach plan, you’ll encounter Blue Zones at key points to help balance your training. Don’t underestimate the importance of these easy efforts. Remember: Taking it easy can be just as valuable as training hard in helping you reach your goals.
