no offense to Ethan, but hes not Michael Phelps. Saying that resting is when you get noticible diffrence is exactly correct... but that doesnt get you actually bigger, faster, stronger. Its just how you look, not true strength or strength building. With basketball still at least a month away (in the states, that is to say) now is the time to overload muscles and shake the rust off the agility.
Still take days off like v-unit says, but keep the start of the season in mind.
