Most athletes know that getting enough rest after exercise is essential for high-level performance, but many still do not understand the function of sleep, and overtrain even feel guilty when they take a day off. The interesting thing is that the body recovers and strengthens by taking days off between workouts, otherwise continuous training without rest can be debilitating for the athlete.
It is important that the athlete understands that as the exercise more intense, more recovery is needed. Plan training and pay attention to your body. This takes you to modify your program, depending on need. Be wise to recognize that more is not better, and for greater physical performance, there must be a balance between exercise and recovery.
