I’ve got a busy couple of months coming up, so I’m thinking of cutting my training sessions to 2 days a week. I’m still a relative beginner. Goals are to maintain the muscle mass I have, and increase strength over this period. Is this a reasonable goal if I’m only working out twice a week? And how would you program this? Right now, I’m thinking:
isolation circuit - bicep/tricep/abs
My initial thought was to do 5x5 for the big lifts. But would I be better off doing 3x5 plus 3x10 instead? And how could i work in some dips? They seem like a great bang for you buck exercise when you have to be selective.
For the record, I have seen Dan John’s article on the subject, but I just can’t wrap my mind around the extremely limited exercise selection he suggests. Anyone try his routine with good results?
