Hey all, I started body building about 2 months ago and have been lifting for a couple of years now. Currently I am mid way through CW’s ABBH program and I just had a quick question.
The program calls for a lifting schedule of every other day with an upper and lower body swap. (i.e. upper, rest, lower, rest, upper, etc.) Now for those of you who aren?t familiar with ABBH some of the low rep heavy weight workout days end up only being about 20-25min. in length.
Having such a short workout and then taking a day off honestly; I sort of feel like I?m cheating myself. I am really getting into body building and want to approach this new lifestyle in the best and most effective way possible.
So basically my question is this: Do any of you who have been body building for a few years now have any suggestions as to what I could do on off days that wouldn?t hamper my growth, and even more so, help it? I understand the importance of the rest and recovery, but again, these 20 minute workouts followed by a day off, I just don?t feel like I am working hard enough!
Thanks in advance,
