I don't feel I'm training enough /fit/ I'm doing stronglifts 5x5 and the off days make me bored.
Also doing 30mins of cardio per day mon-fri.
Go out for a run
>inb4 hurr cardio kills gains
It's an ancient /fit/ meme. Seriously just go do some kind of cardio on rest days. It will not only help you stay lean, it will also keep you more energetic on days you lift
fell for the m'overtraining rest day meme
I'm having the exact same problem with you.
Just came back from the gym (rest day) doing skullcrushers and pull ups.
To be honest I'm not really experiencing any soreness during my rest days and I've been doing 5x5 for about 6 months.
Not OP but I have a question?
I do SL5x5 and boxing on three rest days.
Now my boxing club started teaching noobs about technical stuff two days of the week which I wanna go to. Is it okay to lift on the days I'm having technical boxing since it's not as intense as the real boxing? If not I would only have one day of lifting every week which will do absolutely nothing.
Do what I do - make your rest days coincide with your study days for your doctorate degree in engineering.
> tfw no days required for a gf.
To put it simply it depends on your goals. Any sort of activity WILL affect your weight training negatively. The more you do the more it will affect it. If you find yourself failing lifts while you are eating/sleeping well then it will probably be your activity level.
