There’s no doubt that exercise is important for weight loss but taking a break is also important, especially when it comes to building muscle. Many people think that the “magic” happens when you’re lifting weights or exercising intensely, however, your muscles actually grow when you’re resting.

From Self.com:

“You always have to remember that when you’re working out, you’re not actually building muscle, you’re tearing it down. It’s in those recovery periods that the recovery and reparation happens and hotness occurs. Try splitting up your routine into sections of two or three days, making sure to schedule rest days in between. Five days a week allows the flexibility for you to stay on program and also keep those rest periods nice so your body can recover. So if you’re looking to achieve ultimate hotness, kick back, relax, and take a day off.”
