Muscle Matters - Paul Haslam
A well-structured program will include planned rest breaks to allow the body to grow and recover. Try a system strength athletes use called periodisation, which maximises the effects of the overcompensation process.
Usually, 3-4 intense training weeks are followed by a rest or unloading cycle. That doesn’t mean zero gym work, rather a big reduction in volume and intensity. Or you could have “active rest”, which may involve running and swimming, yoga or playing sport.Got any other body bothers? Send your most curious conundrums through to Paul today.
