Day 5: Rest
As you get stronger, you can gradually increase the difficulty of your workouts in a few ways. You can increase the weight you are lifting, increase the number of sets or reps you are doing, or decrease the amount of rest you are taking between sets.
Here are some additional tips for getting the most out of your workouts:
Focus on proper form over weight. It is more important to do the exercises correctly than to use a lot of weight.
Breathe properly. Exhale as you exert yourself and inhale as you relax.
Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout.
Get enough sleep. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
Eat a healthy diet. Eating a healthy diet will give your body the nutrients it needs to recover from your workouts and build muscle.
