    Even if you did it'll come back. I had to take 16 weeks off in 2016 due to an injury and I'm stronger now on some movements

    I will do a de-load week here and there where I lift really light. It lets my joints and body recover while I am still training. I will also take extra days off when I can feel I need it. It is all about understanding your body.

    Listen to your body if it feels like its breaking down then taking some time off can be beneficial!

    Re: Rest

    I never take a week completely off from the gym but if I am feeling burnt out, I'll do a de-load week.

    It's really up to you. You won't loose any muscle during a week off from the gym but you might gain some weight if you aren't active in other ways. That's the biggest problem I see people get into when they take a week off from the gym. They take it completely off of all exercise and then gain a bunch of weight.

    During your week off from the gym, I would purse other forms of activity like yoga, swimming etc.
