    What Non-Weightlifting Activities Do You On Days Off?

    In recent years I have changing my workout routines from this


    • Eat
    • Lift weight
    • Increase resistance
    • Repeat

    To this

    • Eat
    • Lift weight
    • Increase resistance
    • *Effective non-weightlifting activity*
    • Repeat


    I find by doing that, it opens my mind up a little more and leads to a happier bodybuilding life

    I often go for massages

    That is, Shiatsu, Swedish and Thai full body massages. But what activities do you do on your non-weightlifting days to break the routine up.. or some other benefit?

    What Kind of course? I'm always looking for activities that I can do that will benefit my bodybuilding body and mind, without actually doing any 'bodybuilding'.

    Hey stayfit, just wondering when you say "*Effective non-weightlifting activity*" What sorts of activities does this include that does not do any actual bodybuilding on off days?

    Hi Ark 94

    This could be anything that will give you benefits such as


    • Help remove lactic acid
    • Lengthen your muscles
    • Help relieve stress (Ease the mind)
    • Help prevent injuries

    Yoga, different types of massage, dance. Even guitar hero or rockband (The drums). Or anything that has the 'fun' factor.

    Foam Rolling, stretching...swimming.

    I really try to do whatever I can with my son. In the 8 months of Summer that means we go to the Beach 4x a week. Now, Winter, we go to the playground at the mall.

    I carry a heavy pack, where heavy boots, and walk my ass to the top of a high mountain, then I get to ski powder the rest of the way down. Lots of benefits, certainly not helpful to a bodybuilder though.

    I alternate lifting days with bicycling days then treat myself to a massage as a reward for hitting workout targets.
