Get in an active recovery workout with Coach Jackson's Tonal workout Less is More

Strength training every day can actually harm your body’s ability to build more muscle. If you’re on a fitness schedule that requires you to complete difficult workouts daily, you should consider swapping out one of those workouts for an active recovery routine.

Coach Jackson created Less is More as an effective way for you to keep making progress in strength training by giving your muscles a much-needed break.

Do a Low-Impact Workout on Your Off-Days

Active recovery workouts like Less is More are an important part of any fitness routine. If you don’t incorporate off-days into your schedule, Less is More is the workout your body needs.

Without a rest day, your body will not have time to heal and get stronger. Low-intensity movements help decrease recovery time from intense workouts by boosting blood flow to your muscles and tissues. That means that you’re doing yourself a favor by taking a moment to slow down. Your body will be able to send much-needed nutrients to your muscles so that they can repair themselves and you can get stronger.
