Why De-Load?

26 June 2013

So why are we “taking it easy” this week?

1. Lifting weights does not make you stronger. RECOVERING from lifting weights does make you stronger.

2. Your joints, cartilage, tendons and ligaments need more time than muscles to recuperate.

3. Overtraining causes injury. Active rest promotes recovery and strength gains.

That’s it in a nutshell. We’re de-loading for another three days. When you emerge, you’ll be better than ever. Trust us.
