Recommendation would be to rest as long as you want, AUTOREGULATE your rest periods and train when your ready. -Eric Helms Muscle and Strength Pyramids #motivation #fit #fitfam #fitspo #gymlife #fitness #lift #flex #gym #fitnessmotivation #iifym #focus #instafit #dedication #followme #instagood #ripped #flexibledieting #muscle #shredded #gainz #dedicated #flexfriday #lifestyle #macros #trainhard #success #legionofboom #iam1stphorm #1stphorm
