    I take a week off every 2 - 3 months. I find that I come back stronger and more focused. The week off gives me time to revamp my routine and diet. I also load up the MP3 player with some new songs and it's like a fresh start when I hit the gym the following Monday.

    In the gym
    I used to fear taking any time off from the gym when I was really big into lifting. I didn't want to believe that my body needed rest but now I rest when I need it. If it means two days off in a row then I do it.

    I wish I could still do it non stop and not need the rest but now with a career, fiancee, and other activities it takes its toll on the body. I also think that lifting so heavy for so long really friend my muscles and I am already starting to pay a little for it.
