Friday, January 6th, 2006. A new year and a new muscle mass building season is now well underway. However, most of the training I have done so far this year and for the last two months of 2005 (since my last bodybuilding competition), is not at all like typical off season training for me. It has been much lighter and much more like pre-contest training, and today was more of the same. Read on and I’ll explain why, and I’ll reveal some of my secrets for getting killer weight training workouts when you can’t or choose not to train heavy.
