    Yardwork- Thats not an off day

    I get like that when Im "on", I feel Im wasting my goodies if Im not in the gym (more of a mental thing than physical). Who knows brother, maybe you're addicited.

    maybe you're using your workouts to let out aggression or relieve yourself from stress

    you could find something else to do on that day to give you a similar effect

    good point pogue , my job requires lots of patience and lots of explaining things to people who should know them already or not be near a car, and i have limited patience anyway. so i do tend to build up agression.

    well, i'm not quite that bad but i do get a little cranky when i take a day off. whats helped me is to remind myself i need that day off to grow and recover....and always when i return to the gym i'm ready to go....

    I hate days off too bro. But you gotta do what you must for rest and recovery.

    i believe im in the minority as fas as off days go. i listent to my body whether to take a day off, just do cardio, or lift. this averages out to having a day off every 4-5 days. Sage

    Workouts help my mental frame of mind immensely. So I guess I am in the same boat.
