#restdays are an essential part of training. You may feel like you're slacking, or you may worry that you won't build strength or increase speed or lose weight. Time off allows your body and mind to fully recover and grow. Never taking a day off sets the body up for a breakdown. You become more susceptible to severe muscle soreness, a suppressed immune system, improper sleep, a decrease in strength and performance, and injury. Rest days also benefit your mind: Scheduling a mandatory break from training will help you get excited to jump back into your program! #restandrecover #musclegrowth #strengthgains
