I’m trying to up my conditioning and get stronger. The ultimate goal is to build a good looking body by getting better athletically. So would this routine work:
Monday: Weight Training
Wednesday: Weight Training
Friday: Weight Training
I don’t have time to workout on the weekends because of my current work schedule.
Weight training days consist of one of the following full body routines, all done on a 5 x 5 scheme. After I weight train I usually do some light steady state cardio for 20~25 minutes. I cycle through these routines:
Single Arm DB Bench Press
Single Arm DB Row
Single Led RDL
Single Arm DB Shoulder Press
The conditioning routine is the deck of cards training routine I got from rosstraining.com. Basically, I take a deck of cards and assign a conditioning exercise (push ups, burpees, box jumps, double unders, jumping jacks, dumbbell swings, pull ups, etc.) to a color. I draw a card and do the number of reps the card shows (face cards are 10 and aces are 11).
So do you think I can achieve my goals with this routine? Or is it too much? I know I’m sort of jamming all this into just the weekdays but those are the only times I can consistently workout.
