You have been sticking to a workout routine for the past couple of months, lifting weights, attending yoga classes, playing sports or whatever physical activities you enjoy. Noticing an increase in your energy levels and major improvements in your frame making you wondering if you should take a well deserved break from all the intense training you’ve been partaking in.
I highly advise that you aware of the consequences that may arise from this so called “well-deserved time off.” After just two weeks of carrying out a sedentary lifestyle, your blood pressure, weight and even brain will encounter some harsh alterations.
Believe it or not, months of hard work, dedication and commitment to your fitness goals can all be done away with in the span of a few weeks. While you may believe that some time off from physical activity could do the body good, that is not the case. Taking a few days to recuperate could do the body good but pushing a break any longer than that could be detrimental to your gains and overall health.
