When we run our 21 Day Challenges or have clients want to Up the Ante, often the discussion leads to training twice per day.

Repeatedly working out at a high intensity without giving yourself time to rest and recover, will actually stop you from making any progress fitness-wise. Your muscles grow when you rest, while overtraining can actually make your weight plateau and negatively affects everything from your sleep to your mood. But it’s not just your muscles that benefit from a bit of time out. Rest is important for your motivation, too. After all, your mind is the driver behind you achieving anything, including your fitness goals.
