Active recovery is basically just doing light work on your rest day to get some blood flow to your muscles. An example would be going on a long walk/hike type thing, maybe doing a few minutes of jump rope, some bag work, light weight lifting etc. The important part is you aren't over exerting yourself but rather just doing something light and easy.
