How to wash lifting gloves?

Experienced lifters, how often do you take extra rest days off?

I have been training for two years. Sometimes I feel burnout when I don't get enough sleep in a night or when I have been training hard for weeks. Some advocate taking a week off after every couple of months but that would be too much for me. What about an extra few days off every once in a...
