When I take them, my supplements are rather basic so I stick to Amazon.

Here's another benefit of regular exercise...


I've been working out 4-5 times per week for many years now.  Ever since I started doing this, I think I've had maybe 2 mild head colds.  Now in my early 50s, I don' t remember another 5-8 years stretch like this health wise.  I attribute this to exercise.

Anyone and everyone - What are your thoughts and approach to rest time?  I finished a circuit, and am taking about 1.5 weeks off before starting the next circuit.

I rest for a week every 8-10 weeks.  I still do some cardio that rest week, but no lifting.  I have found that to be the right pace for me.

Along with all of the supplements/vitamins I take, exercise has kept me from getting extremely sick.

If you've been training hard for a prolonged period of time, planned deloads/rest are expected. A lot of people who train will "deload" with an "off" week that may still include lifting but at an EXTREMELY lesser load than they're used to. Or, like you said, just take the time off. Your body isn't going to suddenly forget it's progress and fall off a cliff.

Little off topic but Method Man, at 51 years old, is pretty strong. Watched recent videos of him benching 315 for 4 reps, squatting 315 for 5 (not that impressive) and pulling 500 lbs.

Might be old news, for some, but an interesting read for those having issues making gains....

I feel like they could have used another word rather than "LOADS" of protein. lol
