Rest Repeat

Recommended Posts

Resting is important... But so is genetics.

How long do you rest after a heavy session? .. 1 day or 2?... No rest days until weekend?

i used to do it everyday, now i have a rest day after a session.. 2 rest days if it was naughty.

would 2 heavy days and 1 rest day be worse? .. prob, you'd repair less and be starving.

Just listen to that Body Bro, I usually take a rest day after a Compound day (Deadlifts/Squats) although this week I've felt good so did 6 days in a Row, I'm meant to go this morning but may have today off too, that will make 3 days in a row off, zero sh1ts given, I'll go in the Morning.

Wut?! 

Don't think of it as days/weeks, just go by your body, what in that says anything about a 9 day week?

How much rest you need, when you should take it, and how you should "rest" is really determined by your training and diet.

For me i train 4 days a week, 2 max effort days, 2 dynamic effort days. And i take a deload every 4 weeks.

A deload isn't usually used in a conjugate system, however i find it beneficial.

Or just train more smartly and not trash the muscle so you can recover efficiently for the next workout . Isn’t difficult . I can easily train 6 days a week on a low volume routine ppl twice weekly and that being natty also .
currently doing a more higher volume approach with 2 days on 1 off and repeat  .more volume more rest needed .
