Health Tip: Make the Best of the Off Season

Health Tip: Make the Best of the Off Season

(HealthDay News) -- When your sports season ends, it's time to take a break from competition and give your body a rest.

The American Council on Exercise has this advice:

  • Take two to four weeks off to let your body rest. If you've been injured during the prior season, talk to your doctor about when it's safe to resume training.

  • If you felt your body lagging during the latter part of the season, it's time to improve your endurance.

  • Focus on improving speed, strength and power. Work on goals specific to your sport.
