Taking days off?
Before I ever thought about using gear, I was not a big fan of taking days off. I always felt like a lazy fat azz went I did nothing. I use to do 30-45 minutes on the treadmill on off days and it would keep me energized (physically and mentally).
Now that i'm on gear, I really feel like i'm wasting my time and my money if i take a day off from the gym. I woud think a lot of us would feel this way.
My question is .....does it hurt your gains (while on gear) if you don't take a day to do nothing? I was arguing that with a friend who told me I will get way better results if take a day or two a week off and just sit around like a couch potatoe and eat and sleep.
I would like to know how everyone else deals with this, and if you also feel like a peice of crap if you take a day off and do nothing?

Theres not a **** thing wrong with taking off a day or even a couple of days a week. Your body needs rest as much as it needs to work out. Don't let your conscience get to you.

Resting is when your body grows the most.. Sit around all day and rest up!
