    taking a rest after 90 days?

    ive been at it for 12 weeks coming up and i know you're suppose to take a rest with suppliments after 90 days, so i was wondering after 12 weeks of training is it ok to take off ( one week) ?

    i take a week off every now and then but it's not usually planned... sometimes life just gets too hectic or i may catch a cold or something... which just happens to be every 8-12 weeks (minus the cold... that's only about twice a year)

    I take a week off about every 8-12 weeks as well. I can usually feel it catching up with me.
