  1. Rest days…. whats your opinion on them when training for a bodybuilding comp? How often would you recommend them and would you do no exercise these days? I know rest is good but dont want to use it as an excuse to be lazy and not get gains…

    1. I think they are crucial, especially for bodybuilding. Your muscles grow outside of the gym, not in the gym, and you won’t lose gains in just a day. I think at least one full rest day is great. I have 3 rest days, and all I do is a 20 minute walk. You could do some light movement/mobility work, but it’s perfectly fine to do nothing. In fact, I think greater gains can be achieved through rest days.
