Doctor's Orders: Don't Omit Omegas!

Take a high-potency omega-3 fatty acid supplement, such as fish oil. The omega-3s in fish oil capsules (EPA and DHA) are more potent than fats in flax seed or flax seed oil. That's because the type of omega-3 in flax seeds, alpha linolenic acid, must be converted in the body to EPA and DHA to provide any benefits. These benefits may include greater fat burning, better muscle growth, enhanced joint recovery, improved mood and cognitive performance, as well as a host of health benefits. Take 2-to-3 g of fish oil with two-to-three meals per day, such as breakfast, lunch and dinner.

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.
