Doctor's Orders: Pro Antioxidants!

Take a mix of antioxidants. A good cocktail can have an anti-catabolic effect by quenching free radicals formed during and after intense exercise. In your antioxidant regimen, include these top performers: 400-800 international units of vitamin E; 500-1,000 milligrams of vitamin C; and 200 micrograms of selenium. Get the rest from your daily servings of fruits, vegetables and even nuts.

Active Rest

Remember that every rest day should be an active rest day. Rest days are for recovery; they're not an excuse to be lazy. Get out and hit 15-30 minutes of HIIT cardio today, or perform 30-60 minutes of your favorite activity: hiking, biking, walking, playing a sport, etc.
