Untill 2013 i plan to focus on medium and light weights plus flexibility and some aerobics. My goals are A gain 5 to 8 pounds (of muscles) and B gain some strenght and stamina (not get real big nor real powerfull). I am 54 with 10 months training, naturally gifted for endurance and flexibility not strenght (short muscles bellies). If i bulk more cutting will be easy (an other area i do very well).
I plan to work out days 1, 2, 4 and and 5, 1 and 4 upper body… 3, 6 and 7 being grow/rest days(off gym). 2 of the off days will include 20 min. light aerobics (either cycling or rope jumping).
WO days will split early 35 min. medium load, 4 to 6 hours later 25 min. light work. The light volume will mean mostly compounds, high intensity via mostly sets to failure and rest/pause.
Unload periods will probably last 4 to 6 days after about 6 work weeks. So am i right to think 4 times 35 min. wich are 4 times 12 mins. of intense work will not be taxing my CNS too much ?
Any feedback, comment or suggestion is very welcome.
PS. Off days are there to optimize results i would use less of those for my pleasure wich i plan to do when i get in maintaining mode.
