I’ve been training every week for the past 3-4 months without any breaks and I’m starting to feel run down. I went to do chest this morning and I just felt very tight, my bones/joints were somewhat achy and I had a pain in the palm of my hand. I just don’t feel 100%.
I’m bulking right now and I’ve gone from 205 to 225ish in about a month in a half with some decent strength gains. But now I feel like I’m just on this treadmill and I need to just relax for a week.
1.) Good idea to take a break?
2.) What should my nutrition look like should I decide to take a week off, assuming I was and will continue bulking when I go back to the gym.
