Understanding the difference between rest and recovery can help you figure out the best course of action for your particular situation. For recreational athletes, most coaches recommend one day of complete rest each week. Research suggests that more competitive athletes may need as much as 48 hours of rest, after especially hard workouts. The need for rest in these instances is related to. But if you’re doing moderate or vigorous aerobic activity, rest days are essential.
It’s recommended to take a rest day every three to five days. If you do vigorous cardio, you’ll want to. If you’re experiencing limited mobility or stiffness after a workout, give yourself plenty of complete rest days until the soreness subsides.
You can try some easy walking or foam rolling if you feel up to it, but otherwise, recovery is likely what you need. The Benefits of a Complete Rest Day vs. Active Rest Days.
A rest day doesn’t necessarily mean you have to lie in bed all day. Instead, try embracing. You can get away with stacking a few hard days together, but you do eventually need relative rest. That doesn’t necessarily mean a full day off, but it does mean more than 24hrs where you aren’t working so hard. Otherwise, you break down.
What used to be easy will feel harder and your strong efforts will be slower. Recover Days vs. Rest Days. Ultimately, whether or not you need a complete rest day is based things like your fitness level, the intensity of your workouts, the duration of your physical activity, and if your body signals that it needs them. So, for the typical fitness enthusiast, one full rest day weekly is likely sufficient, while competitive.
With the possible exception of Bruce Banner’s, muscles need a certain amount of rest in order to strengthen and grow. But while some say muscles need one to two days of rest to recover from. The number of rest days that you take each week really depends on how intensely you train, especially relative to your fitness level.
In a nutshell, this is a good rule; if a muscle group is still sore from a previous workout, do not train it intensely again until it has healed and is no longer sore. However, if proper recovery time (rest) is not given then the body can not regenerate. The body will store less glycogen which is why you will look flat when you overtrain. If this imbalance between intense excess training and inadequate recovery (rest) time persists then performance will decline.
Yes you need rest days. Well, you need rest days if you are giving it enough effort/intensity. This is when your muscles recover and grow. I wouldn’t go 4 days straight of lifting; split it up. The way you handle your off days can greatly affect your ability to build muscle and get stronger.
For the dedicated lifter, the problem isn’t that you take an occasional rest day. The problem is that you don’t take ENOUGH rest days and you don’t time them wisely in your training week. Off days can be.
