Get Swole: Cory Gregory's 16-Week Muscle Building Trainer - Day 5
You grow outside the gym, not in it. Support your gains and maximize growth by taking your rest days as seriously as your training sessions.
It's no secret that rest is crucial for growth. In the gym, you damage your muscle fibers and accumulate metabolic stress; outside the gym, through rest and proper nutrition, you repair those damaged fibers and synthesize new muscle. If you cheat your rest, you cheat your overall growth.
The Foundation Phase of Get Swole has three full rest days so you can maximize your potential for muscle gain. Use your rest days to prepare meals for the week, spend time with family and friends, prepare for the next week of workouts, and recover your energy. Stick to the nutrition plan, check out the supplement schedule below, and get swole outside the gym.
To support recovery, spur growth, and help prepare your body for the upcoming week, take the following supplements on your rest days.
