I know this is an old question (and yes, I’m a newbee), but I’ve read through all the old discussions on this topic and also read the two programs carefully and still don’t quite get it.
Would it make sense to do the upper body workout on M and F of week 1, with part I of limping on W, then in week two do Part II
M: Part I of upper body
W: Part I of limping
F: Part II of upper body
M: Part II of limping
W: Part I of upper body
F: Part I of limping
and so on?
I have a feeling doing two lower body and two upper body a week would be too little recovery for me, and I can’t really work out on weekends, limiting my ability to do a slightly more stretched out program.
Even the above might be too much, so I thought about going to simply two upper body and one lower body per week, alternating the lower body workouts in limping. But this seems like maybe too long between each part of the limping workouts.
Background: I’m 39, reasonably good but not great shape (body fat 15%). After a lay-off of a year or so, I’m just finishing the Men’s Health Ian King 6 month program.
