I was wondering if the following program seems sensible:
Day 1: Chest & Biceps
Day 2: Cardio
Day 3: Shoulders & Triceps
Day 4: Cardio
Day 5: Back & Fore arms
Day 6: Legs
Day 7: Off
I need a separate day for legs because I have a weak knee and I need a full one hour for a customized, doctor-recommended work out. I can’t get over the fact that I can’t train each body part twice a week. Any comments/suggestions?[/quote]
Maybe do cardio in the AM and weights in the PM.I would try this so that you are not overworking some of the muscles. Like when you were doing chest/biceps one day, you turn around and work the biceps again the next day when you hit your back. I have found out this can lead to overtraining of your biceps quickly. I recently switched to a push/pull split and it seems to feel good to me. I dont feel as if I am punishing myself everyday.
For instance, on Mon(Push) bench press/shoulder press/triceps/squats. Tues(PULL)Lat pull/rows/biceps/leg curls. repeat on Thurs and Fri. I do cardio in the AM, I find it helps loosen me up. I know a lot of people say dont do cardio before weights, but it all depends on what your goal is and how you respond.
Personally I find it to be great. Before, I would just hit the weights and end up injuring myself. Now, after cardio, I’m loose and can hit the weight with no problems. Sorry if I am rambling, I will check in later, gotta go!!GOOD LUCK!
