Let’s face it, we can’t go to the gym every day. Sometimes we have prior commitments, sickness, vacation, or are just tired.
Rest days can be some of the most productive days in your fitness schedule because they allow your body to reboot following a hard workout. I usually follow a schedule of working out every day but Thursday and Sunday because of my schedule, but you may adjust yours differently.
Taking a day off allows your muscles to build up tissue lost from lifting weights or running. You can also take the day to eat red meats and indulge on that one meal that you’ve been wanting to eat all week.
So kick back and relax. After all, it’s the weekend!
