I need your advice. I am presently one of the top competitors on my college's gymnastic team.
I practice very hard, year round. I also have been bodybuilding for three years now and I enjoy it as much as gymnastics. My problem is this: Our gymnastics team practices from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. weeknights. I have classes that begin at 8:00 in the morning. I usually do my bodybuilding workouts from 1:00 to 2:00 Monday, Wednesday, ~and Friday afternoons. My afternoon workouts take a lot of energy, and when it comes to gymnastic practice I'm pooped. I don't want to give up bodybuilding or gymnastics because I enjoy both very much, so I'm left with the problem of when to do my body work.
I've thought of doing my bodybuilding after gymnastic practice, but this wouldn't give me enough sleep (only 6 hours). I'm also afraid that I'm over-working my muscles and not reaching my full potential. Can you think of a solution to this problem? I'm anxious to hear from you.
As to finding the time to work out is concerned, you will have to decide this for yourself! One thing I will suggest is to take 3 Argintine Beef Liver capsules and 3 Amino Acid tablets every three hours, also 6 phosphorous free molusk and egg shell calcium tablets 3 times a day at meals.
