NROLFW one week off after stage 1

OK so I am just finishing up my special workouts where you do as many reps as possible, and then it says to take a week off.  For those of you who followed this work out and took a week off what other types of exercises did you do?  Did you take exactly 7 days off? 

Did you change your calorie intake since you weren't training?

Re: NROLFW one week off after stage 1

  • I never took full weeks between stages. Sometimes a few days if I felt like it, and a few adys here and there for holidays or vacations and stuff.
  • This is totally what I was thinking of doing.  I can't imagine a full week off every few weeks.

  • I wanted a week off after Stage 1. I'd been sore every day since I started. It was nice to heal.

    Since then, I take the time off that my work travel forces on me. In the book, he basically says rest weeks coincide with family vacations. The major point is that time off through the year is good for you, and you shouldn't worry about taking time away from the gym here and there.

  • I'll be in Mexico during my off week, but I'm hoping walking the beach and playing int eh pool with my little one will help keep the refried beans from attaching themselves to my butt.

  • I only took a break week between stage 1 and 2.  I start 4 on Saturday and I don't take break weeks anymore.  During that week I did only cardio for 7 days...I've never taken a FULL break with NO working out.

     

     

  • How useful are the special workouts? I can understand that you want to see how far you've come from the beginning but is there any other purpose?

    Endurance.

    And it is really rewarding to measure progress. It's only 2 workouts... I have no idea why you'd skip them.

    This!  I think that's the only stage with special workouts.  I kind of wish they all did.  It was great for my confidence.
