The “Rest” Is Up To You.
“The Importance of Building “Rest” Into your Exercise Routine
By Carl Brister
Since the days of Adam in the Garden of Eden, men have been told that we are supposed to work. Adam was given working papers from basically his first days on earth and after the fall he had to work or till the land in order to eat. So most guys I know have taken this mandate to heart and believe that in order to get results from anything, especially in the gym, we must constantly work. Far be it from me to differ as I too believe in hard work and giving 100% in all that we do, however, I have come to appreciate hat little line in Genesis 2:2 that says “by the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. “ (NIV)
