Here’s your situation:
You’re aloud to workout three days a week, but each day has to be the exact same workout. This workout that you continuously perform is the only workout you will be able to do for the rest of your life. You’re aloud a maximum of 5 lifts / exercises in the workout, no more.
What would your full-body workout be? Would like to see some peoples choices of exercises, any input would be nice. Cheers![/quote]
As you get stronger and continue to perform full body workouts and you’re doing some serious exercises, you’ll either have to cycle the intensity by 1) cycling the weights so you have an H-L-M format as explained above with percentages or amount of reps, or 2) create a H-L-M format by varying exercises that have different stresses on the body.
For example, for legs on heavy day, you can do deadlifts on medium days front squats, and light days lunges.
I never understood hypothetical, theoretical, and unrealistic posts, but if people care to talk about those sorts of things, fine. It’s just that anyone with a barbell wouldn’t even need to do the same exercises over and over and over again, such as in the example for legs I give here. [/quote]
I know its not very realistic, but its good to see what other people consider their best ‘bang for your buck’ exercises. Can never be too old or too experienced to try out some new stuff and learn from what others have found worked for them. I’m never literally going to do the same 5 exercises for the rest of my life, I’m just curious to see what others might share. I’m no ‘expert’ in weight training, so there’s plenty of room for experimenting and learning.
