So - I have a relative who is a trainer at a Globogym. She claims that I should not be doing anything with weights if I did any weight training the day before. She was dumbfounded when she found out that I had a 3 on 1 off and 2 on 1 off schedule and that our WODS usually involve some sort of weights (but sometimes just bodyweight exercises) each workout. She also balked at the idea of working the same muscles two days in a row (or opposing muscles). She would prefer weights one day, cardio the next, and then weights the next day, etc. (She also is trying to convince me to stop Crossfitting because it’s hard on your body…..Which was funny because my body never felt this strong and in shape in my life).
All I know is that I’ve been doing this and I feel fine. When I feel extra sore I’ll take an extra day off. Is there some sort of scientific support for not skipping a day between weight training? I would love to be able to respond to her criticism intelligently but I don’t know where to begin.
I apologize in advance if this question has already been answered.
Thank you for any help or advice you may have.
