Rest is Essential For
Straight from Wilton Manors personal trainer Joe Kozma
- Rest between sets and recovery days are vital to any good workout
routine. Unfortunately, most men do not realize this so they skip the
rest days and exercise a bit anyway, which is completely
counter-productive. In order to get the best out of your workouts, you
need to make sure to get the proper amount of rest so your body has time
to recover as well as build the muscle torn during your exercises. I
will tell you that rest is equally as important as the exercise itself!
are two different meanings for the term resting. One is the resting
between sets while the other is full days of rest focusing more on
As you may know, workouts usually involve performing a
certain number of repetitions and sets. When dealing with heavier
weights, it is recommended that you take a three to five minute rest in
between each set. The repetitions will be lower, but the heavier weight
will impact the targeted muscle much more than a lighter one. When
performing with lighter weights and more repetitions, a thirty to sixty
second rest in between sets will suffice.
Rest days are more for repairing and rebuilding your
muscles. While you are exercising you are tearing muscle fibers apart,
which is what you are aiming to do. This process is known as
micro-tearing. The body will repair these tears during the time you
sleep, as well as make them larger and stronger than before. If your
quality of sleep is poor or if you skip out on resting and workout after
an intensive workout day, your muscles will still be torn and will not
perform at their best.
The harder you work out, the longer you will need to rest.
This is the main reason a lot of men target certain muscle groups each
day instead of a full body workout. By only working one muscle group one day, the next day can focus on another one so the torn muscle fibers have time to heal. It is still good to have full rest days so your body can recover at maximum efficiency.
