How many days should I work out per week and how many rest days should I have? You might have already asked these questions. You are maybe also wondering why would you need a rest day? Let me tell you something, when it comes to exercising more is not always a good thing.
For your fitness plan to be successful you need to take regular breaks so your body can recover. This applies weather you are an athlete, you are training for a marathon, or you just want to get in shape. Skipping resting days can result in getting injured or burnouts.
