2 recovery weeks
2 recovery weeks
12/12/12 10:48 PM
Hey guyz, I am wondering if it is ok to take have 2 recovery weeks for this christmas because i am on round 7 of p90x and i followed it the same for all rounds never skipped a workout except for kenpo every now and then. its been so long since ive talked to any of my friends and im thinking that 2 recovery weeks wont hurt my strength and endurance right?

well im just hoping that these 2 recovery weeks will help my lower back pain and ill feel refreshed to workout again.

if anyone can help me or let me know if 2 recovery weeks wont hurt my gains or anything please let me know! i have never took 2 weeks off before so im thinking if i have 2 recovery weeks isnt it just like having a extra recovery week after p90x like some people do. this wil be my first time taking 2 recovery weeks by the way.

thx for taking the time to read this hope you guys got some tips!

The only thing that might happen is a bit of a loss of stamina. I know most would say don't take 2 full weeks off because it is real easy to get out of the habit of not working out. If you are having lower back issues you might want to check with a doc about that.

I have taken a couple of weeks (due to illness) and other than an effect on cardio there wasn't enough visible difference that I worried about it.
