pretty interesting, would you recommend taking a week off every 3-4 months of training for this reason?
i should also mention i didnt often hit the same thing twice in the week (might in the future when i have more free time), but yeah
Personally i take 2 layoffs a year, usually lasting 2 weeks, every now and then i'll also take a 7 day layoff. When i go back to training i feel like a new man.
Do you remember the movie Copland, Sly Stallone gained 40-50lbs of fat and stopped working out for about 5 months for the role, i recall him saying in an interview "its the best i ever felt", when he went back to training and proper dieting again he made some of the best mass gains of his life.
Food for thought:)
