I will admit to taking lot of time off.
I need it. It helps keep the time I spend in the Gym more intense.
There are some days where I will do something else “deload” like swim or just do a very small workout like a barbell complex
or a metabolic conditioning work out.
but there are other factors too.
Work, and travel, I work in film and television production after two 12+ hour days, Or a Day that in itself is very physical-Im not training that night.
And I travel for work quite a bit, so there are times where I am limited to hotel gyms,
or I get creative with running, calisthenics
body weight stuff.
If time allows and I feel recoved I will do 4 days a week of strength training and two days of other stuff.
If I am strapped for time I will do two and two.
I need a balance of rest and work.
