Bodybuilding Off Season Workout
Off-season training for any competitive bodybuilder is a time to gain size, strength and power without getting over-trained. Many bodybuilders fall into the trap of thinking that more is better in the off-season if they train hard for an hour then training hard for two hours is better.
This has now been proven wrong as sports science shows us that if you are training with a high intensity your body turns from anabolic to catabolic after the first hour of hard training. This means that training hard for more than an hour will only get you to lose muscle and not gain any strength.
The off-season training routine listed below is just an example presented with the assumption that you are drinking lots of water, resting at least 48 hours before you do the next workout and eating plenty with at least 1.2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight.
The 3 day spilt routine below is trained a day rest between each workout and then two days rest on the weekend. As you will see the supersets listed should be done with a maximum of 90 seconds rest after each superset. The superset will not have any rest between the movements.
