I LOVE training,4 days off was to go to my girlfriend that lives in enother EC country…
in 3 years very rarely I have had days off…never liked the confort side.[/quote]
Exactly… if you typically take very little time off, then taking four days off all of a sudden will seem like a shitload of rest to your body. Your muscles don’t know you had a good reason for doing it.
And overtraining is always possible. Try doubling your training volume for a week and see what happens. Also my point was that you WEREN’T overtrained enough to need that much rest.[/quote]
Are you saying that if a 4/5 day rest is coming up (that can’t be avoided) that adding in extra training volume beforehand would be beneficial because you’ll have more time to recover from it?
Edit: Should have quoted your other post about overtraining.[/quote]
CT has said so in the livespills. I believe he used the term ‘overreaching.’ But yeah, he’s mentioned that calculatingly exceeding your body’s ability to recover with your standard rest interval can be productive if you have a longer-than-usual layoff coming up. [/quote]
Sounds interesting. I might give that a go if anything comes up in the future. I only had 5 dad off recently because I was really busy with university interviews. I decided to take them as complete rest days do I could come back really fresh.
