    Time off from gym

    Hey guys, I was wondering what your thoughts are on taking a week off from the gym every so often. My last week off was in Feb and I haven't missed a workout since. Do any of you guys take time off? Do you find it benefical?

    Thanks,
    Jimmy

    id only take some time off if you're really run down because there's bound to be a time when you cant get in the gym for 5 or 6 days and that's when your break should be.

    NEVER!! NEVER EVER TAKE TIME OFF!! One week will turn into 2, into 3, etc. Try getting more sleep if you feel burned out and changing up your routine and diet. I was about to take a month off this summer and found out the reason i felt like hell was lack of sleep.

    You got to listen to your body... for example if u feel burned out, tired, and not seeing results for a while, that means change things up... first off takea week or 2 weeks off, this is very good for the body... mentaly no, but other wise yes. think for a moment.. You have been beating ur muscle all year.... it needs to repair or take a break.. like school like work.... need a day off or vacation .... so every 8 weeks take a week off or whenever u feel like burned out take a week off...

    Yes, a week off can be beneficial if you have lost that motivation and feel like you are just "going through the motions" a week may bring back that intensity. Once a year I take 4 weeks off and occassionaly take 1 - 2 weeks off. You wont lose all your muscle mass and you will probably be stronger when you come back to the gym.

    Dude, I take 3-4 days off every so often and that's it. If I took a week off, I probably won't go back to the gym. Be careful.

    Either take a week off or go much lighter once in a while. Usually, you'll need a break around every 8-12 weeks if your intensity is up to par.

    Even though I usually experience a drop in my fitness level, taking a week off from the gym can be beneficial in more ways than we know. Personally, I just prefer to deload heavily by reducing my volume by 70-80%.

    I take a week off every 3 - 4 months and I've never had a problem getting started again ? You should normally just start a little bit lighter when you "return" but I normally just reduce my bench press by a few pounds but I use my normal poundages for all my other excercises because I normally feel really energised after having some time off ?

    Take at least 2 weeks off every 6 months. During those 2 weeks do NOT go near a gym and stop all supplements except protein shakes IMO. You'll come back mentally refreshed, your body will love it too. If you're trying to bulk up you might even gain a few pounds? When you get back into the gym take the first week to fart around and then kick up the intensity each week until you reach another plateau and need another break. It works wonders!!!

    Going lighter is not a good idea. Staying heavy and reducing volume is the proper way.

    Taking time off is very important!
    You allow the muscles to heal . You will lose a little strength but that will come back ; in fact you will gain more size and strength after the strength returns.
    2 weeks here and there for a total of four weeks a year is what I do. You should figure out what is best for you.
