In this article, I would like to tell you about REST in sports. Now that you have started training, the right rest has become an integral part of your regime. You need to rest not only between the exercises but between trainings as well.
Many people think that the more you train, the better you grow, progress, and in general, you become more fit. But this is a delusion. The muscles grow and recover, when we rest, eat, sleep, in other words, at the time when physical activity is reduced. You would ask how it is? We grow during the training because exercises result in microfractures of tissues etc.. Yes, that is correct, but during the training, muscles destroyed, and restore when you rest. At the same time, anabolism, the formation of new cells and tissuesoccurs.
Can you train every day? Of course, you can, but the loads must be balanced very clearly and only under the supervision of a professional trainer who will create a schedule of your workouts, diet, even sleep! Your regime is must work like a Swiss watch, otherwise, it will result in being overtrained, a decline of strength and power, and apathy.
I do not want to write to you about the complex physiological processes in the human body. The whole point is that if you exercise more than rest, the body releases more stress hormones than the restorative hormones. So your body collapses faster than it recovers. It’s simple!
In conclusion, I will say that rest is the most important aspect of the sport, both professional and amateur. Eat right, go to bed before midnight and your body will thank you.
