My girlfriend wants a new workout for when our gym opens back up tomorrow. Most of the weight training routines she has done have been ones I provided her with, often from this site. The last one she used was Art of Waterbury.
Here’s the thing…she doesn’t really get that into lifting and her primary goal right now is to get leaner. She gets bored spending alot of her workout lifting (would prefer to do cardio) and doesn’t like doing too many different exercises.
I suggested something like this:
Mon - Squat, Row, Bench
Wed - Deadlift, DB Military, Lat Pull
Fri - Squat, Row, Bench
Mon - Deadlift, DB Military, Lat Pull
Wed - Squat, Row, Bench
Fri - Deadlift, DB Military, Lat Pull
Week 3 - same as 1
Week 4 - same as 2, etc.
She could be done in less than 20 minutes and have more time for cardio. I was wondering what rep ranges/cycle would be good. I was thinking something like 5x5 (increasing weight each set) for two workouts then 3x15 or 2x20 for the next two, then just keep alternating each two workouts.
How does that sound?
