YES! It's a thing...
Updated: Dec 15, 2018
I KNOW some of you were waiting for this post :) So here it is. Yes, you need a rest day, or two. Listen to your body. It DOES need days off. There are many reasons you need these days; here are two of them:
1 - If your sleep patterns are all over the place over-training could be the culprit. Too much exercise can put your body in a constant state of restlessness or on high alert making a good night’s sleep tough to achieve. Your rest days can bring down your alertness and heart rate which can help you get a better night's sleep.
2 - The first thing we learn about strength training is that when you lift weights, you're essentially tearing muscle fibers. Without proper rest for your immune system to repair and grow the muscle, you will miss out on the benefits of your training.
So there you are...it's okay, and it's necessary. Now go add some weight to that bar!!! #healthymindhealthybody #ptwithSuzanne #SuzanneKemp #move #strongissexy #musclesinmotion #lovetolift #newyearsresolution #mettle #girlsofiron
