It´s very tough for me to follow a solid and structured program when I´m on the road with my truck for a few weeks or months. I don´t have acces to my equipment or even a hotel gym because I sleep in live my truck and therefore I can´t do my regular 531 routines. The only equipment I have are my adjustable bowflex dumbbells from 10-90 pounds and two kettlebells in the back of my truck.
Because I´m sitting a lot I want to maintain healthy hips and strong legs, thats my number one priority but I´m not sure, because I don´t have the experience and I´m not a professional like you, how much is too much!?
For the one leg stuff, I will cut down the reps, for sure but:
When I want to train my legs/hips with a double leg squat movement, where I have zero knee pain, like the classic DB-squat,
-how often per week should I train them in my case to build/maintain strong legs/hips for my job? (I usually do three workouts per week on the road but like I said, I´m not sure how often I should train legs directly with the DB-squat for example)
-how many reps would you recommend for DB-squats in these sessions when the DB-squat is my only and main movement for legs/hips?
-do you really perform 100 reps for DB-squats three times per week?
-what is too much wear and tear for the hips, how many reps per week? Like I said, I want to stay healthy and don´t train like a butthole!!!
If you don´t mind and you have a few minutes of your valuable time, I would appreciate when you can answer my questions or give me a recommendation or a sample workout “for truckers” and how often I should train my legs with DB-squats as a main movement and how many reps etc.
I´m also a member of your private forum but I appreciate that I got your attention here and that you are willing to help me out and take your time to help all the other guys also here.
Thank you very much for everything!
