When to take a Rest Day

We were having this conversation recently at a session. and it’s important so I figured I’d share it.  The question is, when should I take a rest day. There’s a few members of the group who are really into their training. They work out with me 4 or 5 times a week. And run a few times a week too. And that is excellent.

But, should you have a rest day? How many? And what exactly constitutes a rest day?

Consistency vs intensity

I’m sure we’ve all seen it on FB and Instagram. The posts that go:

I’ve smashed a killer workout
I’m so hard, I’ve run xxx. I’ve squatted xxx
I’m so sore, I did xxx

These posts shout out about Intensity. But we hardly hear anything about Consistency.

Let’s talk about Caffeine

Anyone who knows me will know I looove coffee. Strong and black and sweet.

It’s my “treat”. I use it to wake up. I use it to concentrate. I use it when I want chocolate. I use it when I want a break. I use it when my kids have wound me up. I’ll regularly have 5-6 shots in a day. more if we’re doing homeschooling!!😲
