I have been working out pretty hard, about 2 hours a day 5 days a week. Cardio between 750 to 1500 calories and lifting hard 4 days a week. I know that I should have rest days, so I take Sat and Sun off, but I get so depressed these days. All week I fall right a sleep at night and I feel so happy after my work outs. On the weekends when I don’t work out I get so depressed. Saturday I’m just kind of lethargic, but Sunday are down right horrible. Today I’m almost in tiers wishing it was Monday so I can go to the gym.
My question is: Will doing a half hour or so of light cardio on my 2 off days hurt me that bad, or does my body really need 2 days of nothingness to repair?
Right now I’m trying to lose body fat, and muscle maintenance. Does any one else experience this off day depression, and if so what do you do?
