"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Physical Activity After Workout

After I finished Dr. Darden's new book a few months ago, I went into the workouts with the mentality that after I left the weightroom I wasn't suppossed to do really any other physical activity or I would risk overtraining. Is this correct and am I suppossed to just sit around when i'm not lifting?

Cause being an active guy, I love playing sports and staying in shape. So what are we allowed to do in terms of excercise after we leave the gym? Can we run, can we swim, etc. Just thought I'd put this out there.

I wouldn't give up any activity that I really enjoyed a lot. There is more to life than resistance training.

Resistance training should enhance your ability to perform in other activities not replace them. Unless it is pilates, plyometrics, aerobics or some other nonsense.

If you were looking for the maximum muscle growth possible, then these other activities done with any kind of intensity would undoubtedly hurt you..but to be honest with you, if these things are an important part of your life, I would say do 'em and your weight training will still add to your looks and performance.

I love to Dance, especially the Latin variety. I feel this has had no effect on my weightlifting.

Yoga. Calms the mind, soothes the soul and lengthens the myofascia.
