Just out of the pool, sitting down holding your breath around 4 - 5 times a day? Just curious whether or not this affects you in anyway and also if skipping a day deters your progress. Thanks.
From personal experience, yes, it is bad. Just like in any other training, you must have some breaks. Skipping a day every now and then is only good for progress, at least in my case.

At least for me, training every day (by that I mean at least a couple of max statics per day), starts to cause all kinds of things. I'll start to loose sleep, have digestive problems, etc. which cumulates and after a week or so I'm simply pooped. Performance starts to go down, I'll start having problems in every day life due to not sleeping well enough and so on.

Now I train 3-4 days in a row max, then at least 2 days completely off. This is still more than generally recommended, I think.

Someone propably has a more scientific answer...
