When is Your Off Season?

How long should your off season be? I hear that you should always have an off season. What do you guys do during your off season? Anyone play baseball?

This year I’ve been playing softball from April until the end of August… and I can’t wait til the season’s over so that i can hit the weights again.

You don’t lift during the season?

I play baseball almost everyday… no time to lift.

Summer is definitely off for me. As a student it’s really the only time for extended vacation and whatnot, and I don’t really drink much during the year but rather save it for the summer months. It’s a good time for me, I just eat maintenance, play some recreational sports (tennis, volleyball, and basketball), and lift about three times a week when I can. Even when I’m on vacation I’ll do pushups, squats and chins hanging off a balony; I really can’t help it.

I lift all year round, same for cardio. My off-season is basically when 15s rugby is not on, so june-aug and dec-early mar.
