I prefere doing a fullblown workout and resting after does is maķe a diffrence if u rest inbetween or after?

31 Jan
Idk. I rest after, to me if I rest between I loose motivation. I rather go through it balls to the wall, then rest. I don't think it matters as long as you stay hydrated. Good luck!

I heard you burn more calories if you go straight through the workout

I would rest AFTER also..Just pace yourself so you wont burn out early and keep water, also eat a good meal after you are done...

After finishin the workout take a protein shake....preferably whey...it helps in immediate muscle repair....as it is absorbed very fast due to the insulin spike after workout

I dont like them they taste nasty lol tried all diff flavours aint fr me usually drink lucozade or rockstar

Why dont you try ON gold whey protein? There are various flavours to suit your tasting...and I gues this much sacrifice for taste is worth it.

I would say your good resting as long as they don't turn into little naps lol I read that after resting for than 2:30 mins you have to start your body up again, to get your heart rate up and body burning that fat!

A lot depends on your goals.   If your looking at cardio, then go for it all out.  If you are doing weights it depends on if you are looking to build strength, power, hypertrophy or endurance.

Check out my topic post about resistant training and maximizing your goals.  It talks out weight, reps , sets and rest periods for each.

Depends on the workout.... with cardiovascular exercise the more intense the better tho if your not needing any rest during your workout I question the intensity per your fitness level...your workouts possibly  may not be challenging enough anymore and you could possibly go to the next level... intensity is not being able to go through a workout without rest intensity is whn your workout is above your fitness level and you have to push through even if it means 1 min or 30 seconds to catch your breath...as far as protien shakes immediately after your workout thts only for weighttraining as your muscles for a window of and estimated time frame bout 10 minutes after a workout are more apt to absorb for lack of better word the protien as well as bcaas nutrients etc. If your not trying to build muscle thn its unnecessary...as long as your filling your personal macro nutrients for the day frm a clean diet your fine infact more then fine

It actually depends what you are working out for. If ur lookin to loose fat and get shredded then a high intensity interval training kind of work out with no rest is ideal. That is what I do. When you want to bulk up with heavy weights u need ur rest so that u can lift heavier in the next set.
