BB, definitely build in the Rest weeks, it's when you get the benefitof the training. I work on general principleof two weeks of training, and then a rest week, as I know I need more rest. OThers works on 3 weeks training and 1 week rest.
Pm the 2:1 ratio, I find I can maintain quality worksout for the two weeks, whereas I struggled if I tried to maintain it for a third week. During the rest week, if I'm feeling recovered then I might 'train' properly on the weekend.
Strong bodies ar emade on the sofa, not in the gym!
