Truly listening to your body and knowing when to take rest days has always been a challenging part of fitness since it’s easy to fall off the wagon and lose motivation during this downtime. As a trainer and die-hard health enthusiast, it’s always been difficult for me to mentally and physically take a break from what feels like progress. However, after years of training both myself and others at modelFIT, I’ve learned that rest days between exercise are when the body sees (and more importantly feels) the most progress.
modelFIT has pioneered and customized a unique approach to mindful and dynamic movement that builds graceful strength and confident presence, and rest days are part and parcel of this method. The deeper you get into your exercise regimen, the easier it will be to determine how much rest you need on any given week. Here’s a simple guide to get you there.
