So I’m finishing my undergrad mid-December and have about 7-8 months free before I start school again in August. I’ll be living back at home where my mom doesn’t mind providing me with as much beef, eggs, chicken, or any other food as I need. I’ll be out of pretty free of stress. The only responsibility I will have is finding/working a job that I’ll just be using to save up, not necessarily pay for rent/food/anything else. I can probably get 7-10 hours of sleep a night.
I’m currently on a 5-day relatively low volume split and making decently steady strength gains. Wondering if I should keep this, or do something a little more extreme during this short time period. Once August starts, school will be totally kicking my ass (more stress, less sleep, less gym time, probably less food) so I want to make the most of this time.
So, if you had 7-8 months free with a job + gym + decent food, what would you do? I know some people have done some short-term crazy things over summers, so think of this an extended summer. Did you make exceptional progress over a free summer or other time off?
