Rest from training?
Taking a break from training can bring you many benefits if you know how to take advantage of it
Muscle fatigue and rest from training
As we have told you on several occasions, doing excessive physical activity does not favor you.
Sometimes people believe that overloading the muscles with training will help them achieve their goals quickly, but the body does not work that way.
It is advisable from time to time to take a break and stay for about 3 weeks without training.
Resting from training works as a kind of reset for the body, helping it to recover better and return to physical activity with more energy.
How to take a break from training?
Start slowly, resting for only one day, that is, you stopped exercising for 24 hours and took advantage of that time to sleep.
During the break, take time off to spend with your family and friends. During this time you can also replace casein or protein shakes with antioxidants and vitamins.
What is the consequence of resting from training?
At first glance you will believe that you can gain or lose muscle mass, however, you will feel the benefits of having rested when you resume physical activity. Initially, you may see yourself “deflated”, but this does not mean that you have lost muscle mass.
When training the muscles gain volume by the retention of liquids and effort. This visual increase in volume is temporary, all the volume that you maintain during the rest period is a muscle that you could really build during the training.
When you resume training you will feel that physical activity has an even greater effect on your body and this is one of the greatest benefits of rest, enjoy it!
