I had the pleasure of speaking to one of our members today regarding his training after his workout and he told me that he was feeling exhausted. After some probing, I discovered that he had been working out intensely five to six days a week without ever taking more than a couple of days off. When I asked him why he never took a few days off, doing nothing, he told me he was worried about losing the gains he had made. You cannot lose your strength or endurance in a week! In fact, our bodies need rest to recover, especially after long periods of consistent, high intensity workouts. Here's a basic introduction to overtraining.
Also remember in addition to your rest, your nutrition and supplements are an important part of proper and full recovery. As with anything, ask your coaches if you want some more insight into your volume of training and overall rest.
