    Re: workout schedule

    Meaning... 2 workouts per day Sat and Sun. Too much?

    Sounds good to me, plus u can do squaTs by holding two 5lbs -10lbs db on each arm . At least u can work them out a bit with light training.

    Re: workout schedule

    You can workout on Fridays after work can't you?

    Friday- chest
    Sat- shoulders/ biceps
    Sun- back/ triceps

    Or not necessarily in that order, personally I do not like doing 2 push or 2 pull exercises the same day. Jmo. Oh and that is one hell of a work schedule lol.

    No. Not too much but it would really be dictated by your goal. I did 2-a-days, 6 days a week for 5 straight years when I was competing.

    No doubt about it those were the best growth years of my life. It requires a lot of time management.

    thanks cashout... Do you think each muscle group x2 a day is not counterproductive provided i eat accordingly and rest? Or just hit chest am and shoulders pm?

    im thinking 4 exercises 7 sets 3 warm 4 working.

    I tried it a couple of different ways when I was doing two-a-days an the configuration that I started with was this:

    AM - PM
    Monday Calves/Hams - Quads
    Tuesday Chest - Back
    Wed. Arms - Shoulders
    Thursday Calves/Hams - Quads
    Friday Chest - Back
    Saturday Arms - Shoulders
    Sunday Off Off

    I changed it up as some body parts responded better than others over those years.

    Again, I was strictly bodybuilding so this might not work for someone who is try to train for strength or powerlifting.

    plus with a three day full body workout, doing strip sets, on the main lifts, and possibly cardio thru the rest of the week, or even p90x, because it incorporates weights and cardio, could be doable, or just simple steady state cardio for 30-45 min at say level 7 would do u very well!
