    depending on your goals i like to eat ALOT on my off days to stay fueled and ready to go for the next heavy workout. Also a sufficient amount of sleep.

    Eating right. I like workout days because the entire days is structured, and after working out feel so good I have interested from straying from my diet, but off days I dont get the luxury, so thats it for me.

    You should try and focus on eating more on training days since your maint. cals are going to be higher these days because of the training you're participating in. Anyway I think the most important thing on an off day is rest and relaxation.

    I agree with all of you, especially the rest and relaxtion. With all of the supplements and pre-workouts we take I think allot of us tax our CNS and a good days rest (and some Reset A.D.) can help fatigue!
    Do you guys suggest any extra supplements on OFF days? Maybe higher intake of BCAA's, Glutamine, Waxy-Maize? I am trying to bulk up.
