Rest Day!

Please be aware that at least every 5-6 weeks of training on the Z-Fit schedule (3 days on, 1 day off) you should take off about a week from any strenuous conditioning. Your body needs the time to heal and rest. Don’t become a couch potato or eat fast food for a week, but simply don’t do any metabolic conditioning/hypertrophic strength building. Play some sports for fun, take the dog for a walk, but nothing too crazy.

I know this might sound crazy, but you will not lose any strength or conditioning, and you’ll be able to come back harder and stronger after your body has completely healed.
