Day off. It’s been a few days since I took a break from the gym. Since I’m retired I don’t worry too much about over training, but do listen to my body.
Overtraining and the Importance of Rest Days
I cannot stress to you how important it is to really listen to your body when exercising. Your body will tell you to slow down, help you avoid injuries, and definitely tell you when it’s a good time to take a rest day. Follow your routine by all means, but don’t be afraid to take a rest day. Your body will thank you for it and you’ll see some definite gains when you get back to your workout in a day or so.
Happy Tuesday All!
I’ll see you tomorrow…
