Weight and Resistance Training - 30 Days Shred (Strength Training) - 30 Days Straight??

Hey all,

I am not sure if this is in the right forum but...I am doing the 30 Days Shred program. I was always told that when strength training, the muscles should have time to rest. To get maximum results, should I be doing this program 30 days straight or incorporating rest days?? Thanks!!

i don't take a rest. i am in the 20-something thread a lot and there are many of us doing the 30ds there. i don't believe very many of us take a rest. i don't feel like it is necessary. i don't think the strength training that we do is so intensive it requires a rest. just my opinion though. you know what your body needs. if you feel like resting, then do so, but if you feel like you don't need to, don't.

There is a thread in the exercise video forum for 30 day shred:

I'm not familiar with the 30 day shred but I imagine if it is cardio weight training where you are using fairly light weights, then you don't need to rest unless you feel sore.
