I understand the danger in 'overtraining,' spending too much time in the gym, and the importance of rest, but I don't think it's [i]that[i] big an issue for someone who is highly motivated and who's goals go beyond simply just being strong or big for no other reason than that. I also believe that cryotherapy, soft tissue work, stretching and nutrition play a big role in recovery, which I also take seriously, other than just resting (anyone is free to correct me if I'm wrong).
If you're saying that you're probably not at the level where you have to worry about that.

That being said, what are people's opinions on using the prowler or sled dragging for a recovery workout? I've been doing the CA WODs {just finished the strength cycle, on week 1 of the bulgarian cycle) w/o the metcon and I feel this could be very beneficial.
Try it out.
