    just like the title says, how often do you guys/gals take a break from working out in general? also mention how long your break period is here and how often.

    also use this thread to discuss when it is optimal to take breaks from training.


    im just curious to know how others feel when they need a break. longest break ive had was 5 days and i been working out for 5 months.:hsd:

    I end up taking breaks about every 5 weeks or so due to my cycle of tests, I dont like it but when I have 3 test in engineering classes on the same day I need the extra time

    After 12-16 weeks of intense lifting I'll take a week off.
