Let me rephrase that. The only time I have to train Monday-Friday is either 8-8:30 (need to shower and be at work by 9) or for a half hour during lunch (I live close to work). That’s not enough time to go through 2-3 exercises unless I superset them (which is impractical with my home gym setup). So my options are:
Day 1: barbell press/dumbbell front squat
Day 2: barbell squat/weighted ring push-ups
Day 3: deadlift/kettlebell overhead press
Ring weighted pull-ups done on another day (low volume, higher intensity and once a week due to elbow issues) and kettlebell swings done two other days (10x10).
This way I can keep the same sets/reps scheme and get my training completed in 25 minutes or less. I have to do something like this or similar as I don’t have time for an hour workout during the week (Saturday I like to do outdoor trail runs, biking, kayaking, etc)
