How long should you let a muscle rest before you retrain it?

Is their any way to recover faster
IF you are working out HARD 1) Have a carb & protein shake after working out 2) Make sure you’re eating enough in general. 3) Make sure you’re eating enough complex carbs. These are more important than proteins 4) Get enough sleep.
Steve whats more effective,doing the same routine excerises week after week or changeing routines week after week? i guess it doesnt matter,just how intense u train will give you results,right?
Yes BUT doing the right exercises with intensity is the best. I bench and incline bench every week for chest becasue they are the best exercises for chest. Why take them a way just to do another exercise which is less effective? This si what people don’t understand about P90X. If a fast balls, curve balls, or jump shots are working you don’t stop doing them!
I’VE GOT SO MANY QUESTIONS!!! haha
so can i workout each night if i work a different area of my body
Yes, that’s what I do!
how much time do you spend per workout? is an 1hour30 min too much for the body??
Nope. My workouts are 90 minutes without cardio!
Hi Steve. The recovery process seems like a mith to me sometimes. I travel a lot and I see this construction workers in development countries who phisically work their bodies very hard every day and can see well develop muscles. I don’t know about their health but, my point is, they do develop outstanding muscle without considering a recovery time. Any thoughts?
Sure. Slow continuous physical labor is not quite the same as explosive, intense weight training. This activities stresses and damages the muscle and uses up valuable gylcogen. Both of these activities are really what recovery is about. Healing the muscle and replacing glycogen.
I was woundering if you could help me with some.After my workouts i don’t seem to be sore anymore, i was woundering if u could tell me why this is and if i am still gaining muscle and strength even though i aint sore?
You’re not sore because you’re getting into shape. Your muscle have gotten bigger and they are used to the weight you’re using. Time to increase the intensity by increasing the weights, sets, reps, exercises or a combination of all of these.
Ok, Tahnks. Just one other thing when i do bicep curls i fell it in my forearms more than my bicep. Is this due to bad form or too heavy weights?
It’s do to the fact that your forearms are also being worked. These muscle not only grip but the also flex the forearm.
Thank you very much you have been a great help, and i will report back how things go.
Mr. Turano i was wondering why it was that i train my arms and chest and feel no more soreness. it makes me think im gaining no muscle and my arms arent as tight(hard) as they were when i started lifting. please Help!!
It means you’re getting into shape. Don’t worry, that’s what suppose to happen. Time to increase the weight a bit!
Hi Steve. I am at the point where I can’t wipe my butt because my biceps are so huge. Also, I cant wash my hair. Some dude at the gym told me I am swole. I do not know what this means. Does this mean I am like Peter from Family Guy? Love your body, or at least love mine.
P.S. I’m black
…yes i mad, brah. negs for yew.
Negs? how do you get those.
P.S. I don’t care
Start ripping ass more often, studies show that ripping ass makes the amino acids in your body flush throughout your system. Thus causing faster repair after muscles have been worked out and are repairing.
You must smell like absolute SHIT if you can’t wipe your ass or wash your hair! negs
I think nobody can give you any better advice, no personal trainer or fitness guru, but YOUR BODY. After training just rest as much as you feel what time is needed to recover.
negs negs negs? neg your ass fuckums
Hey Steve, I started doing high intensity training after reading a book based on the workouts of Mike Mentzer. I have 3 different lifting days and usually resy 3-4 days between each workout give or take a day or 2 because of work, school, ect… Anyway, say I were to do legs 1 day then didn’t do them again for a week and a half or so, is this too much rest? Should I be training more often? I’ve heard that rest is a big part of muscle repair and growth but almost 2 weeks is a long time. Thanks
