Congrats to you all who punches the clock each week, you made it to Friday! Even though this workout is far from rest, lets chit chat about it. Rest and recovery can be a difficult thing for a lot of people. It is for me. I understand the importance of rest and recovery and taking complete days off from the gym. But, if you are like me, there is no time to rest! I have goals to achieve! And that’s what I have to keep reminding myself of, I won’t hit my goals if I am overworking and straining my body. It actually might set me back. Today, the cold season train hit me and I am feeling far from my 100 percent. I am supposed to do legs and butt today but I decided to take a rest day. A year ago, I would have walked into the gym aches and pains and all and done my workout. I probably would have either injured myself or the entire workout would be complete crap and a waist because I wasn’t able to perform at my highest degree. I’ve come to realize that rest and recovery is a necessity in order to make gains in the gym. If you are constantly breaking down your muscle then when are they supposed to repair themselves if you aren’t giving them a chance to heal? Listen to your body, listen to your tweaks and pains and allow yourself to rest. Your body will thank you.
