Question: Working Out

Would you recommend taking breaks in between work out days to allow the body to recuperate from the previous day's workout?

Answer

The average person should be practicing strength training 3-4 times a week. It is, however, the intensity of your workout that will determine how often you should be training. As a general rule, train each muscle group twice a week, but if you are working muscles to complete exhaustion, you may need to limit sessions to once a week. Remember to keep a day between muscle groups to prevent over-training. Abdomen exercises can be allotted to both your upper and lower training sessions, therefore practiced daily.

As a general rule, you also need to take off one full day a week from all forms of exercise.
