Resting is for whimps?

A response someone once gave me when coaching them

But I will re-phrase this in relation to resistance/strength training:

 

‘Not resting long enough is for failures’

 

AND

 

‘Your trying to make breakfast, lunch and dinner as one meal…yuck’

Let me expand before you think I’m being harsh!…

 

The notion in fitness, is too much rest is bad, that it shrinks the benefits from the training

 

Sure thing…

Not trying your best is going to do diddly squat for you, but when it comes developing strength, power, tone and definition to the body, this isn’t the case

 

Now I don’t want to recycle previous insight I’ve shared with you on making sure your rest periods are ~3 minutes between key lifts (Due to the need to replenish the energy system which fuel’s heavy and explosive movements)

 

But make the point, when done with the correct loading and technique, then you will realise its going to trigger something great….

 

BIG improvements in the qualities you want to improve in your body

 

Take someone we coach at CP who today honed her technique and range of motion on a press up…

 

She’s pretty fit, but got up out of breath feeling ALL of the key muscles working overtime, purely because this blend of:

 

  • Appropriate rest
  • Technique
  • And optimal loading…

 

Delivers a pin point, super targeted training effect in your body

 

Use these good rests to perform mobility and stretch work in, we do this in targeted joints dependant on where each individual member has issues, to kill 2 birds with 1 stone

 

This is a big reason, we’re not advocates of under fatigue, circuit type training, where you’re doing everything at once, particularly with technical exercises…

 

By trying to do everything at once, you really are trying to make your 3 course pub lunch, into one dish!

 

Keep the metabolically fatiguing training on one side (fitness/conditioning)

Keep the strength, power, mobility training on another

Don’t throw it all in to the mix at once
