    taking the weekends off?

    How many of you guys take the weekends off from training? And if you do, do you do anything? (like cardio or other activities)?

    I do. I don't do much except eat and watch sports and maybe go to work if I feel like it. I'm trying to bulk though.

    I actually have had my best results when I have taken two consecutive days off from training. The most I did was occasionally walk my dog but it was recovery time well earnt!

    I almost always take the weekends off (totally). I have found that by Friday's workout I am usually exhausted and sore everywhere. If I take the weekend off, I am fresh and ready to hit it hard again on Monday. Taking the weekend off does not included diet though. I adhere to it strictly, always.

    Myself, I NEVER TAKE THE WEEKENDS OFF. haha, you see lifting is my life, and when a normal person is out partying "having the best time of there life", I am out lifting "MAKING the best time of my life". I for one LOVE lifting on the weekends because I don't have school, and I don't have anything normally, and I can get completely readied and physced up to lift, I can plan it EXACTLY as I want, and I don't have to be in any rush WHATSOEVER.

    Weekends are actually my more "on" days. Since I work M-F, I love to spend most of time @ the gym on the weekend.

    I take the weekends totally off. From diet and work outs. The most activity I get on the weekends is if I am going to the store or cleaning up the house. OF course, I'm also not training to compete.

    Oh yeah ... and I have to take it off anyway .. because the gym is closed on the weekends.

    I always take the weekends off. I need to let my body recover. When I keep going I can't do as much and I start to get sick. My body really responds to a few days off and then I can go back on monday and give 100%. It is not good to workout everyday without a break. On the weekends we do other fun like in the summer we have a boat and so we swim, ski and do all that. In the winter we have snowmobiles. It is still exercise, but different and more family fun.
    Take a break! Your body will thank you

    When I have taken the weekends off, by the time I get to the gym on Monday I am pumped, more motivated, and have much more strength!

    If I train 5 days in a row then I take the weekend off and I don't do anything except rest. Of course the weekends means that I'm grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, playing with the kids, studying, visiting family...probably more stuff than what I do during the week.
    During the summer I like to go for a long run on Saturday or Sunday mornings.
