Pick a sport means, you name a sport and I will tell you the athletes that play that sport that plan weeks off from either there sport or their training.[/quote]
I don’t care who plans weeks off. It means nothing to me unless this person is making so much progress that it puts most advanced trainers to shame. I am not lifting weights to be average. This discussion is about whether the people HERE should be taking regular weeks off.
The answer is NO, they should not unless they are truly training so hard and making so much progress that most would call them ELITE.
Honestly I think .05% of people on this board are here to compete, that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying just as hard. How many are trying hard, I’d say close to 50% of the people who come on here are trying their best, are they successful…no, but I highly doubt there lack of success is because they took a week off every 3 months.[/quote]
Their lack of success is likely because they are NOT trying that hard whether that be in the kitchen or in the gym. It is either that answer or they literally suck genetically which is rarely the true reason they make no progress.
People who work their asses off usually SHOW IT in some way.
So your saying because this OP isn’t a professional competitor, he should push through the pain in his arm that he got from overworking/working incorrectly his arm? Which is what this genius stated he just got out of all of this[/quote]
I work through quite a bit of minor pain. Whether he should is up to him and his doctor. Further, he should be trying to find out why he is injuring himself so much when, judging by his picture, he isn’t really carrying all that much size.
