For most (if you're following the calendar) Tuesday was a day "off" which means REST. Rest is important in the cycle of training. A Day "off" gives your body and mind a chance to heal. Feeling sore after working out is also fairly common. Muscle soreness is caused by damage to the muscle fibers themselves. Which is what is needed to increase muscle strength. So taking a day off to rest helps to allow your muscles to rebuild and recover and helps to prevent injury.

This is also why it is best to have at the very least 24 hours in between weight workouts, I suggest 48 hours in between working muscle groups. And be sure to get a good nights sleep!

So with all that said... I had my Circus School "workout" last night. We worked mostly on the fabric and the rope. So lots of climbing and gripping. At the end of each class we do "conditioning", last nights conditioning was pull-ups on the rope/fabric, followed by 15 burpees, and then handstands (on the wall for me).
