Gym after one week off

#1 Postby EdensDemise » Mon Nov 11, 2013 10:47 am

I didnt go to gym for one week. not because i didnt want to but because i had some problems and a lot of things to do.
in this week i even made IF 2 times and i felt great but i feel my muscles are a bit soft. and i felt like i am really back with the training. i thought about to get more higher with the weight maybe 5 kg more. is it ok after one week off ?

Yeah go for it, just make sure your form is good
Taking a week off every now and again is good for recovery (provided you are training hard) - my log

Well. If you can move the extra weight, put it on. If you cannot, don't.
It's really that simple ;)
