I am doing the Mike Mentzer program, working out intensley and taking days off from the gym between workouts. The question I have is regarding sports activity, during a bodybuilding phase. My goal is to bulk up and increase my muscle mass, but I also play tennis 3 times per week. How does this impact my bodybuilding results? Would my tennis practice prevent my body from getting the adequate amount of rest to allow my muscles to properly recover and grow?

As far as bulking up and building as much muscle mass as possible, Mike Mentzer would tell you to keep cardio, sports, etc. to a minimum for best results. Because all that activity burns up calories and cuts into your recovery ability between workouts.
