Alright, I'm still stuck.. I went back to a 3x/ week strength training at highh intensity. But I keep thinking about the people in nondeveloped countries that have amazing bodies, and they are doing high intensity stuff everyday. I'm thinking of a woman washing her laundry in a river while squating, and using her core to stabalize her body as she uses her back and shoulders and arms and hands to scrub all her families clothes. I'm not talking lifting weights strength training stuff but body weight activities. So she might wash clothes one day, help clean an animal the next, carry buckets of water each day, squat during much of her activities, etc. Same goes for a man. He has various activities that require strength and repetition, but he doesn't take days off from living to let his muscles recover. Wouldn't they repair and rebuild while he sleeps at ight like all the other cells in his body? All that to ask, why do we have to rest in between workouts if our workouts only consisted of body weight activities. Again, I'm NOT talking about squatting hundreds of pounds or lifting weights. But couldn't I do planks, squats, pushups, etc every day and get stronger because these activities are a part of my everyday activities?
