Training should be an important part of life. However, fitness enthusiasts won’t see results if they don’t allow their bodies to rest.
It’s easy to get excited and carried away working toward a goal. When people start to notice changes it becomes more motivating to skip a rest day and just keep going. Often we forget that our muscles can’t grow unless they’re able to recover. For that reason, training regimens should include at least one rest day per week.
