Is it good to have rest days during workouts?
Yes. You don't necessarily need to take the whole day off. Just alternate the certain muscles you plan on working, or maybe divide your body in half and do upper one day and lower the next. If you are wanting to build strength and size you need to work hard then let your muscles rest. When you work out, you essentially tear your muscle tissue. That is the burn you feel. You need the resting day to let them rest and rebuild new tissue. That is muscle building. If you want to build up big use heavier weight, at low repetition. And the opposite for staying lean and slim. Use lower weight and more repetition. Remember to always stretch before and after a workout, use proper safety techniques, eat healthy, and stay hydrated.

Yes, they do.. Think of it this way: you do not grow muscle in the gym. What you do in the gym should stimulate muscle growth outside the gym, which means that recovery is as… important as exercise. Exercise is like medicine: too little is not effective and too much is counter-productive. In both, it's important to get enough without getting too much. It's best to do both cardio and weight (strength) training for fat loss. Cardio will burn extra energy during and immediately after your walks. Weight training will build muscle, which is your metabolic furnace that will burn calories 24 hours a day . It is not necessary to do intense cardio (such as running) for fat loss. The best cardio is mild exercise such as brisk walking. It is sustainable and it will not interfere with proper strength training. An excellent program is to go for a brisk walk six days of the week. The best time to walk is before your first meal of the day. Walking two miles will retard additional fat gain, while walking 3 to 6 miles on average will help you lose fat. "Brisk" means walking at a 4 mph pace. If you have not been walking, build up to that very slowly. You need not do all your daily walking in one session. It's only necessary to do proper weight training for about 45 minutes every 4 or 5 days. (Do a whole body routine. Focus on the major, compound exercises, which are full squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, and chins. Learn proper exercise technique and do it on every rep.) So doing mild cardio such as brisk walking is fine with one rest day per week. Doing proper strength training is fine with only one workout every 4 or 5 days. So both have rest days, and, together, they will greatly accelerate your fat loss. You can use this sustainable program until your dotage.. If you have not been doing the weight training, you will find that, unlike cardio, which can be boring, it's actually fun. If you adopt and sustain this program, you will love your results. Train in good health! (Before significantly changing your exercise habits, you may first wish to obtain the blessing of your physician.).
1 day is enough. Sometime 2 days. Depend on your body.
work on a different part of your body every day
Hi , you should probably spend 1-2 days of rest between your workouts. it also depends how hard you workout at your workout. if you do an easy workout then only rest one day, …and if you work hard, the rest two days. you should workout 4 times a week if you want big muscles that show. drink lots of water and dont eat junk period.
You are under 18 and you are wondering whether you should work out every day or should you rest giving 2 days rest from your last workout?
You don't need 2 days rest. do cycles, lower body one day, upper the next, then mix lower with some explosive lifts like clean+jerks and snatches. then mix upper with auxiliar…y lifts like curls and tricep extensions, ect. as long as u don't just keep working the same muscle group everyday, u don't ever need a whole day rest. but one a week would be a good idea for your joints.
What is the number of times you do a lift without resting during a muscle-training workout is called?
it is termed as repeat (shortly reps). Say some body performing bicep curls (either using DB or barbell) can perform 10 curls without rest we term it as 10 reps. After taking …rest if again he/she continues 10 reps it is termed as set2 where as the first one is termed as set1. Say somebody performs 10 reps curls taking some rest in between these 3 times then the equation will be 10(reps) X 3 (sets) = 30 curls (total)
You need to wait at least 48 hours before working chest again, the longer you rest the lower the risk of overtraining
A good weight training and cardio routine, visiting the gym 3 days a week, might consist of something like this: Monday - Chest, Back, Abs Wednesday - Legs (Quads, Hamstrings…, Glutes, Calves) Friday - Biceps, Triceps, Shoulders This is just a general workout, using the principle of focusing on two or three muscle groups per workout, working them hard, then allowing them to recover for the rest of the week. You can throw in some cardio (no more than 30 minutes) AFTER your lifting routine if you want to only work out 3 days a week. Another option would be to do a full circuit 3 days a week, doing a single workout for each muscle group on each day rather than working a couple of groups really hard. This method can result in a higher calorie burn if your goal is to burn fat/lose weight. A good rule of thumb is to build all your workouts around basic lifts that target larger muscle groups. The foundation of a chest and back workout, for instance, will probably be bench press, pushups, pull-ups/lat pulldown machine, and some variations thereof. If you want to add more isolated moves after that, you've used the bulk of your energy on the workouts that do you the most good. Check out fitness magazines and websites for examples of good individual workouts to add into your routine. By changing your workout every few weeks (4-6 or so) you can keep your muscles from getting used to what you're doing and avoid plateau.
or you can have a day off and do nothing but eat and sleep. sleeping in regular intervals will help too.
Yes better to remove shirt while doing gymastics.
on my workouts i tend to listen to various artists and songs, but i would recommend using any good adrenaline filled songs if you get what i mean so it gets you pumped
