My schedule is super busy this time of year. Between fathering, husbanding, amateur landscaping to keep the HOA’s panties untwisted, work, work, and looking at myself in the mirror, I only have two days I can get to the gym for barbell lifts.
I do however have a job and time spent waiting for my kids’ practices that afford me opportunities for bodyweight work. I also do my diligence with conditioning and recovery.
My question is for those with experience running the 2-day a week plan. Did any of you really get into a third workout day with assistance work? If so, what was your opinion?
I currently follow the two-day a week template, Squat+Bench on Wednesday and Deadlift+Press on Saturday. Main lift + FSL, super-setting rows and chin-ups. Finishing with core work and face pulls and/or curls.
My body tells me I can handle 25-50 reps of push-ups, chin-ups, weightless or light weight single-leg stuff on a third day. My job is very active and I do that stuff at work anyway. I don’t expect you guys to know my body better than me, that would be weird. I just like hearing ideas and experiences.
