I’ve been dreading it for a while, but realized I should take a week off from training. I just spent 3 months on CW’s HFT and it did marvels but I’m now switching over to CT’s HSS-100 and will be following his recommendation of taking a week off after each block.
So I’m in my week off & still doing soft tissue work, dynamic stretching, static stretching, and jumping rope. I only jump for 10 minutes (but it’s continuous at around 1300 reps in those 10 mins). I’m not doing my surge or creatine since I’m not lifting and wondering if I should be doing these at all with the cardio. I believe the answer is no.
However, since it is exercise, is my ability to tolerate carbs post-rope-jumping the same as if I’d lifted weights? Or should I just stick to the regular P+F meals post-workout? I made the assumption that my body can handle carbs better after jumping so I had some in my next meal but will avoid them if it’s incorrect. Note that I do soft tissue work, 10 minutes of dynamic stretching, then 10 minutes of rope jumping in a row, so I think it’s like a light 25 minute workout.
Thanks in advance!
