You can only get stronger through rest and recovery. Wahoo sports scientists Neal Henderson and Jeff Hoobler break down everything you need to know about both active and passive recovery. You’ll learn about why a little R&R is so critical for performance, how to do it properly, and some key strategies to help you get the most out of your days off the bike.

Rest is not a four letter word…or is it???
Thanks for the episode! Now I’m thinking about riding during recovery days. I prefer riding my bike instead of driving a car when meeting friends etc, which typically means about 10km with 100m vertical.
When training with a plan, is it always Ok to ride “extra” like this or should I sometimes choose car because of the plan?
@Ohannula Volume and intensity are different things. If you are just doing easy spinning then it is probably fine but certainly keep an eye on how you are balancing additional riding with the work that is scheduled in your plan.
