No doubt highly individual but I wondered if anyone had similar experiences.
I’ve always completed 99% of my workouts just fine. Some are easy and some I struggle through but I almost always complete them. Recently, though, I’ve twice experimented with having 2 or 3 days off in a row. These days off are taken at the “end” of my week. On both these occasions, the following workout has been pretty catastrophic. Complete failure of the workout about half way through with no hope of salvaging much. After a couple of back pedals and attempts to get back in to the work, even at a reduced intensity, I just call it a day and hop off the trainer.
I know I often perform better with a bit of fatigue but I was surprised to find that additional rest seemed not just not beneficial but actually detrimental
Anyone else have a similar experience?
