Although you probably don't like to admit it, deep down you know your body is crying out for a rest. But as usual, you push through. Mind over matter, only the weak need rest, no pain no gain, I'll sleep when I die, and besides, busyness is importance and I like being important. Yet once again you hear the quiet call from within... “stop, rest... please!” What do you do? Do you listen to your body? What is rest to you?

For competitions like the Spartan Race, which require strength-endurance, a high-carb diet at least one week prior to the race is recommended. The evening before, a “pasta party” would be ideal to fill glycogen stores up with a big portion of pasta or potatoes.

Or alternatively some people may only get sore muscles from certain workouts, and not others. Then this leads them to think those workouts are less effective than the ones they feel post-workout soreness from.

The modern world seems determined to put you on your backside. Our ancestors worked in physically demanding farms and factories, but modern technology has taken away that physical strain. We’ve swapped standing for sitting, which is a serious problem for the three muscles that make up your buttocks. Sitting doesn’t require any engagement from your derriere. The average American sits anywhere from 8-15 hours a day. Combine that with the time spent sleeping, and you could have disengaged gluteal muscles for nearly 20 hours a day.
