Heya T-freaks. I’m just easing back into working out (recovery from surgery went outstandingly well)and I’d like some new stuff to play with so I don’t get into a rut. I’ve been training three days a week doing chest/tri’s back/bi’s Shoulders/quads on Mon/Wed/Sat. On the “off” days I do ab work, calves and cardio. I respond well to lower reps and generally stick in the 4x4-7 or 5x5 for the core exercises (bench, squat, deads). For the rest of my workout I do one secondary exercise (hammer pull, Arnold Press, Skull Crushers) for 2-3 sets and then I do a circuit or two of supersets. I like to do my cardio within the rest periods between sets, sprinting on my stairclimber for 1-2 mins. I’ve found that the shorter my workout, the more pumped I feel both after and the next day. Right now, my average workout time is about 56 mins, I’d like to get it down to 45-50, but I’m not exactly sure how to make the sacrifice. For those of you who also feel they benefit from a shorter workout, how exactly do you pull it off? Do you hit the gym four days a week? Any info would be, as always, greatly appreciated. Lata.
