You finally got your feet up under you where you have a routine of working out and eating right and you are doing it like clockwork. You take your supplements, throw on the music, and grind out another workout with the mission of gaining results. Days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months to where it becomes second nature. But just as we need a vacation from the daily grind at work so do our bodies. So make sure you take a week where you get away from the routine, and if you like me and must do something, drop it down to a light work out where you are just walking or stretching. You can even look at going to the zoo, local walking trail or beach and walking around enjoying the scenery. The point is to make sure to rest and allow you body to recoup and relax your mind. That rest will do wonders as you will come back refreshed and energized. When was the last time you taken in some R&R?
