What's the most time you've taken off not due to injury?

    Thu, 2006-10-26 15:02 — battongeor227

    I've heard that some people train every day, but i find that very hard to believe in that the body eventually has to rest for about a week to recuperate. I've done it to where I can go for about 4 to 6 weeks but eventually I need about a week off. Is this true of everyone or are there people that literally train everyday without rest?

    Some people can train all of the time. Usually they are younger and their bodies heal faster. I am old and need time off on a regular basis. :cool:

    i'm 32 and find that my hands and joints definitely let me know if i've had a busy week on the mats. with doing the podcast (and other responsibilities like life / job / etc) i only get to train 2x a week. it sucks and i wish i had more free time to go, but now we're on a caleb-rant.

    to answer the question, the most time i've taken off not due to an injury is probably 10 days. after that i start fiending pretty bad, and need a fix.

    the good side of taking time off not due to an injury is that i find my game is a little refreshed. sometimes i feel like if i go strong for like 8 weeks straight that's when i get in a training rut, and my game is kinda stagnant. with the occasional week off i come back to the mats refreshed and have some really good days on the mats.
