Gym 80 days no break

In no world is it effective to work out 80 days in a row without recovery. You are 100 percent not working out properly and wont see results without injury. So far off the mark about fitness. Active recovery is a thing but in 80 days of acutally effective workouts you would need complete rest days. Otherwise you arent working out properly and wont see any results without damage, and lighting the wick and both ends…

Please come back!

I adore listening to these lovely and talented people, it’s like sitting around and chatting with artsy friends (which I don’t have in real life). I hope they make more podcasts, although I know they’re all very busy! It really is great advertising for DesignCuts as well, I’m glad I found this and I may have to just binge listen to all the episodes since it’s been a while since I heard them.
