are rest days a meme?
He's black, who cares what he does
>Is recovering a meme
Yes it is. Lift every single day and report back in a year with all the massive gains you'll acquire
can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not, it’s a genuine question, obviously a rest day once or twice a week makes sense, but there’s people taking them multiple times a week even multiple days in a row at a time, it seems counter productive considering your goal is to exhaust your muscles and force them to grow
>your goal is to exhaust your muscles
It takes him a really long time to run 3 miles, holy shit.
Because the program is BS.
You're body need a minimum 2 days a week between each muscle group. Yes rest days are extremely important and sometimes you need multiple rest days in a row sometimes even a week. I've had times where I was plateauing with a certain weight, took a week off and when I came back I blew right through the same weight I was having trouble with. I'd even argue that rest is one of the most important aspects besides diet. You could have perfect training but if you're not resting right it doesn't mean shit
>You're body need a minimum 2 days a week between each muscle group.
That doesn't necessarily mean you should do rest days, just that you should change what you work day to day.
Your body and CNS needs rest also if you're lifting any actual weight and actually pushing yourself.
ask me how I know you can't even bench 2 plates
No. Lifting hard needs to be matched with resting hard. I was lifting 6 days a week for months and making slow to no gains, then work became busy and I could only lift 3 days. I consistently felt the same but my lifts went higher each week.
>considering your goal is to exhaust your muscles and force them to grow
Lifting is the stimulus to make them grow. Resting is when they actually grow.
Think of your muscles as fruit on a plant. When you want larger fruit, you prune it to force it to make larger fruit. Pruning the rest/sleep. Miracle Grow is the juice.
He typically runs around an 8:30 mile for four miles, according to strava
depends if your goal is longevity no. If you need to be in incredible shape for a short duration yes.
weightlifting is different from doing calisthenics
CNS fatigue among other things

I learnt the hard way
upright rows and biceps is what I do everyday
Aren't situps bad for your spine?
yes. he broke his back doing them.
He broke his spine, his spine is broken.
>I BROKE MY BACK
what do you mean by that?
>MY BACK IS BROKE
didn't he have a motorcycle accident?
>are rest days a meme?
dunno, but I've been doing 1.5h of some sort of exercise everyday since july. haven't had any injuries or huge burnout yet. Some of the days admittedly are just 1.5h of walking, "active recovery". but i've gotten quite lean and strong. I probably wouldn't recommend highly intensive exercise everyday unless you have superhuman recovery.
You can do no rest days but you would have to eat a lot of food and the right food. You'll need to sleep at least 9hours
Wait but I though people always said you have to do some sort of pull exercise or you’ll get injured/imbalances
Who thinks they can do 2000 sit ups, 500 dips, 500 pushups, and 500 shrugs in 3 hours?
