Recuperation Week – No Training
This week is a well deserved rest week. By now you have hammered your muscles for 8 solid weeks. They need this time to fully recover and grow.
After this week of rest and recuperation you’ll find yourself noticeably stronger and more motivated to train. This week is essential for proper mental and physical recovery.
Do not train at all this week. This is a Max-OT Cyclical Recuperation week. It’s critical for full recuperation and maximum muscle growth response.
You should still eat well, but don’t be afraid to indulge a bit. Just don’t go overboard. Use the extra time you have to reflect on the past 8 weeks and plan and visualize the coming 8 weeks. Make note of your improvements and gains and build a strategy of making your workouts even better, more productive, and more intense.
