Myth: You need to kill your muscles with many exercises and not rest more than one day a week in order to see good results!
False! I always hear this myth a lot whether in the gym, from my clients, potential clients, and friends. I see them doing exercises for each individual muscle and staying more than two hours on the weight training alone! Some also join more than 3 exercise classes a day in addition to their weight training. They don’t rest much during the week, and prefer to take two days off maximum a week. In this article I will discuss the risks involved in over training, their negative effects, and what is the right way to plan your exercise program.
