    Accumulated fatigue

    How often should you take a break from lifting to reset any accumulated fatigue? And how long should the break be?

    No one answer for everyone and every program, it’s not always a full break, and it’s not always for “accumulated fatigue”.

    It depends on how much fatigue has been accumulated. That's the real answer.

    Just keep in mind that if you have to take such breaks very frequently. (I.E: every 2-3 weeks) - you probably have to fix something in your program, or life.

    I would go off of how you're feeling, how you're recovering, how your training is potentially suffering, nutrition, hydration, sleep/recovery, etc. All these factors play apart in your question.

    How often is going to be different from individual to individual.

    Very simple, you get feedback from how you feel. It's a bit like measuring your weight. Novices might panic after 1 bad day in the gym and think they need to rest. More experienced lifters will know that bad days happen and it's only if you get consistently poor performance 3 or 4 workouts in a row that you are due for a rest.

    I usually take a weekend easy every couple weeks. Occasionally I take a midweek day off if I'm really feeling it. It'll change person to person with diet, age, sleep schedule, genetics, weight, fitness, ect.

    I train every other day. I never train two days in a row. I don’t need to plan or schedule any “breaks.” Ever. Breaks happen when life gets in the way.


    For someone who’s on a frequent program where they are making demands on their body 5-7 days a week, they will tap into recovery, wear out “fight or flight” response, find their body in a perpetual “resistance stage” until ultimately, injury or illness occurs….so what’s the recommendation? Typically 6-8 weeks, plan a couple of extra days rest and or reduced intensity of training.


    Typically the mental burnout occurs before real physical exhaustion.
