The cycle in a competitive bodybuilder's training year when their main objective is to acquire muscle through weight training and a relatively high calorie diet, without regard for fat and water accumulated in the process. Before 2000, this translated to a gain of 25-45lbs from the day after a show to their peak off season weight, before commencing the second cycle in their training year, namely the pre-contest stage. In recent years, most bodybuilders have attempted to keep their off season weight closer to their pre-contest weight, in order to minimize time spent doing cardiovascular training to lose fat and water retention, and more time training with weights to preserve precious muscle mass. The pre-contest cycle is oriented around gradual fat loss (generally 8-15 weeks out from a show) through calorie reduction and the introduction of cardio training in conjunction with weight training. Different types of steroids, fat burners, and other pharmaceutical aides are used in this period as opposed to the off season.
German bodybuilder Markus Ruhl's off season weight is well over 300lbs. But his contest weight is generally in the 275-280 range, to best showcase his impressive biceps and the detail in his upper back.

Ronnie Coleman, 8-time Mr. Olympia winner, generally took 2-3 months off training after a major show. This would signal the onset of his off season, during which he let his body rest and discontinued dieting until the preparatory phase for the next contest.

The pseudo training that occurs during foul weather times in anticipation of the up and coming prime seasons for outdoor recreation. Involves searching out abnormal exercise routines like; going to the gym, swimming at indoor pool, the climbing gym, old fitness equipment in the basement. That pursuit of fitness contrasted with increased detrimental activities such as beer drinking, watching movies, partying, and a net calorie gain.

The period of time following a break up from a relationship in which steady pussy was readily available. This refers to the need to begin jacking off again because the pussy one once cherished in their relationship is no longer available for every-day-use.

This is something one must prepare and train for prior to entering the said jack off season, much like spring training in baseball.
"Dude, I am about to break up with that cunt; I gotta start hitting the gym and working the forearms to start training for jack off season."

"That sucks!"
