The important thing to keep in mind is that you must first and foremost rest the body in order to promote the cellular regeneration and repair needed to properly detoxify the body. Maybe the second most important action we can take is to keep our blood pumping fresh oxygen throughout our organism as much as possible.

So the challenge is to find the balance between activity and rest. During a detox program is NOT a good time to try to improve athletic performance. In general, you can continue with your exercise/training routine but at 50-70% effort.

You must listen to your body, if it wants to rest, rest. Unlike normal training where “pushing your limits” can be a good thing, in this case, it will be counterproductive. Athletes will find that by staying active, but less active than normal, once they finish the program they will return to their training with more strength, focus and endurance.
