Richard Seven of the Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest Magazine follows Dan Wilson through an offseason workout with trainer Peter Shmock, a former Olympic shot putter.
In the article, Seven mentions that Wilson takes a month off after the season “to clear his mind and allow his body opportunity to recover and recharge. Shmock calls this ‘active rest,’ and says it is critical for amateurs like you and me, too.”
Good thing, too, since I do a lot of “active rest.”
Okay, so it’s just regular rest.
