Sometimes You Need A Break


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

For various reasons during the past year I have taken breaks from exercise. I find that after taking some time off, I come back feeling stronger and more motivated.

If you are feeling tired all the time, you aren't progressing in your workouts, you aren't having good workouts, or you just feel blah about working out, take some time off. You are probably suffering from burnout and your body needs time to recover.

    My doctor told me I needed to let my muscles repair themselves as they get tears in them. He suggest I exercise 4 times a week but try to do more using different machines.
