Rest days why they are important

Post by DarrenW29 »

Rest days why they are important

when we train we breakdown muscle tissue but also are central nervous system gets hit intensely to for optimising muscle growth you need to rest listening to your body is very important during a growth phase training 3-4 days per week is more than enough for stimulating muscle development and more isn’t going to increase the rate of growth

What I’ve found to work is high volume heavy loads do more in that session more body parts trained but give yourself more rest days

The biggest freak to take bodybuilding to the next level was Dorian Yates who trained 4 days per week people forget rest is the most important factor here and giving your body the building blocks rest to repair the damage and come back bigger stronger than before

Train both strength and pump for hypertrophy strength and hyperplasia pump so different rep range in your training program

When you look at your training go by days not weeks so if you rest but day 8 you hit the muscle you didn’t train during the week that’s ok because we go by days not weeks

Signs of recovery
Good pump
Strength increase
no loss of strength
enjoying training
no muscle pain

big sign here when you feel your training is like a chore your joints ache and you feel weak mentally and physically this screams overtrained

So next time think of rest days as a good thing and days no weeks when it comes to your training

Rest days are the days you grow most, because all the food you eat that day is to build and recover since you dont have any effort that burn calories .
That´s why i never train more than 3 days in a row and never more than 5 days week . You need rest to grow and me ready to work harder every workout .
I use a method that works amazing on grow weak body parts : I take a off day after i train a weak muscle , like saturday i train legs and sunday is rest to make sure all the food i eat on rest day goes to build that legs .

I have a question about training frequency for you guys.

How long are you spending in the gym when you are only training 3 or 4 days a week?

Currently, I am training 6 days a week, but some of those gym sessions are only 45 min at time. I don't feel like I'm overtraining or hindering growth.

What are your thoughts?
