As some of you already know, my life has been hell lately, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up at the moment. It’s affecting my training, energy levels, motivation and overall sense of well being.
I don’t have the energy or desire to do some of the workouts that I’ve done in the past (most recently, I’ve done six months of CW’s stuff with good success and plenty of Renegade Training prior to that).
So, to help save time and spare the little energy, desire and motivation that I have, I’m wondering if I can get feedback on those that have or currently are using the One-Lift-A-Day program by Dan John.
If I go that route, I may do one or two lifts a day, something along the lines of the following:
Day 1: Power cleans and back squats
Day 2: Bench press and rows
Day 3: Deadlifts and power shrugs
Day 4: Chins and close-grip benches
I would do it every other day or two days on, one day off, or whatever fits into my schedule. Accessory work would be performed as I felt necessary or had the energy to perform.
Because of what is going on, I need shorter workouts that will hopefully keep me motivated and allow me to continue making gains, but I refuse to stop lifting heavy or trying to get stronger in the meantime.
And I just don’t have the energy or desire to be doing 4-6 exercises per day three-to-four-days-per week.
(And no, I’m not a newbie to T-Nation or training/nutrition).
