So I was thinking about dropping some body fat in the next weeks so I figured I would star adding some conditioning into my 5 day split. Right now it goes something like this:
DAY 1: Quads/Biceps Isolation
DAY 2: Chest/Calves
DAY 3: Vertical Pull/Abs
DAY 4: Rest
DAY 5: Hams/Triceps
DAY 6: Horizontal Pull/Shoulders
DAY 7: Rest
I tired to put isolation exercises as far away form compound movements that could be affected by them as far as I could (is this the best way to go or is it better to schedule isolation exercises for a muscle together with compound movements that also work it (for example chest/triceps, back/biceps,…)).
So the (other) question is how to incorporate some conditioning into the routine. I wanted to start with 2 sessions a week and add some more as progress demands.
- Would it be better to do something like farmer walks, small circuits, etc at the end of the workouts? if so, which workouts would be suitable for this?
- Would it be best to schedule conditioning drills on the other two (rest) days?
I would appreciate any advice regarding this issues. Any input would be helpful
