Tom's 1 Minute Pro Tips - Should I Take a Rest Day?
When it comes to exercise the vast majority of people do one of two things: Too little, or too much. Too little often means being inconsistent and exercising sporadically. People who do too much are extremely motivated, generally for a short amount of time, doing more than they can handle both physiologically as well as psychologically.
