A2Pretty bad here in America, maybe worse in England and Ireland. The Scottish drink whiskey straight so that's not good. Then you have stereotypical, yet true problems among Native Americans with alcoholism. The average Native American on a reservation has a life expectancy of 48.
Now lets turn to Mexico, they have an even worse problem.

Q. Why is enough rest important after fitness training and does it have any other benefits?

A1your body needs to recuperate, so do your muscles. if you do not rest enough you may suffer overtraining and be sidelined from injury.
A2When you exercise, you lead to muscle atrophy and when you’re at rest your muscle starts forming. Its rest which makes your muscle, exercise makes the space for this. Many other benefits are there as it recovers the torn out muscles and as well reduces the body heat and also gives you enough power to increase on your next set of training.
