So, what do you do while you are resting? Normally, these activities are what I do:
- Stretch my muscle. While stretching is usually regarded as only a pre-workout activity, experts found out that stretching during the workout itself is a great way to accelerate the blood flow and trigger an increase in muscle strength. But, taking precautions not to overextend your muscles.
- Adjust (increase or reduce) the weight.
- Also, go drink some water. Maintaining fluids during your workout is great for keeping your system replenished and your strength intact. Dehydration is one of the worst nemeses that your body can encounter during the sweat session. Also, that walk to the water cooler helps keep your body warm, rather than to remain stationary in a seated position, where your body can quickly become comfortable and thus inactive.
