I was pondering my next routine and realized how pointless the most careful planning was if I suddenly quit 10, 20, 30 years down the road. It's akin to meticulously counting carrot calories and eventually going on an all-out binge.
So now I'm wondering about how to make weightlifting part of my lifestyle, for good. (Cardio and stretching is easier to manage, I find).
I was thinking of simply placing a certain amount of exercises and training prescriptions and pulling them out of a hat. I'd train on non-sore days when I have the most time. Obviously this won't be conducive to much hypertrophy or specific adaptation in the short term (due to the persistent variation), but I think it could yield good results in the long term.
Any thoughts? Has anyone tried anything similar?
