🐝💕Hey Busy Bee’s Health Hack 3️⃣0️⃣is more of a ‘it’s ok – don’t panic post’ rather than a hack. To help you understand that have time off is OK👌🏻
➡️Are you worried your time off from training will affect your gains? affect your weight loss? … stop don’t panic read⤵️
➡️Here are my tips and advice to panic less about having time off from training⤵️
➡️You will not lose all of your ‘gains’ muscle will not just fall off you in a matter of days💪🏻
➡️All your strength will not just disappear-you will not become weak over night.
➡️You won’t have to start from the very beginning when you return. NO you may have to taper down slightly to help against getting an injury but once the muscles are aware you are training again you will be back again quickly we have muscle memory to thank🙏🏻
➡️Time off from training can actually be very beneficial – your muscles & body can rest, grow & any niggles or pain can actually recover & you can get back to training even better & harder.
➡️When you rest/take time off you can feel stronger physically and mentally – If it doesn’t work for you physically and you do feel weaker after returning – just think of the mental benefits think of how your mind can take a break from planning, preparing and sometimes worrying/stressing about training 🧠 ➡️It is important to know the difference between needing rest and being lazy. If you are feeling stressed, sleepy, and your nutrition is not on great form, your emotional and you may just need recuperation and you probably need rest so take it 💤
➡️Just a note if you are working both on aerobics & weight/resistance training & you take time off from working out, you will see your endurance decrease quickest but you hold on to your strength gains longer. (I will explain the science another time.
➡️You will not lose all that you have worked for in a few days or couple of weeks.
➡️Keep mindful of what you are doing how you are training & when you are resting. As you can see rest is necessary and so is training so a combination of the two is important for growth and repair👏🏻
➡️hope this helps angels, rest is good & spa’s are a great excuse for a proper REST that’s what I say!🧖🏼♀️ ➡️Happy #Tuesday much love J💜
