    body resistance????

    I was wondering if it is ok to do body resistance stuff on the days i dont lift weights. My schedule is
    Mon-chest and tris
    Wed-back and bis
    Fri-shoulders and traps
    I would like to do pushups, dips and chin ups every tues, thurs, and saturday and was just wondering if this would effect my muscles at all as far as overtraining or recovery.

    why don't you want to lift weights? IMO, there is no substitute for pumping iron

    I actually make push-ups, dips and pull ups (not chin ups) an integral part of my routine, albeit heavily weighted.

    you need to let the muscles that you've worked rest on those days off, there is no point in doing body resistance stuff, just make sure to stretch

    doing body resistance is same as working out - which means, you're not giving your muscles time to recover & grow.

    You already said it.........SQUAT! and rotate itwith leg press. Throw in some lunges, leg extensions, leg curls and you'll be good to go.
