I have followed Schuler and Cosgrove's Hypertrophy I and II programmes (from The New Rules of Lifting) and seen good gains, both in terms of beating records and comments from friends who have seen me grow.
With a months holiday from University approaching, I have been wondering what I should do next.I have an EZ bar and dumbbells but they aren't really heavy enough any more for the big exercises such as rows, deadlifts etc
Although my goal now is to shed excess fat and retain as much muscle as possible, should I:
1) Take the whole month off to recover
2) Take a week off and then go into the "Fat Loss" workouts, bearing in mind my weights may not be heavy enough...
3) Re-think my training strategy and try and find something new
