I am 38 and I have been nice and regular at the gym for at least the last year and a half.
I have a three day split;
Tues: Chest / Tri / Abs
Thurs: Back / Bi / Calves
Sun: Shoulders / Legs
I do cardio about 4x week.
The problem is, I *CAN'T* do two days in a row of lifting - I need at least one day in-between to recover.
i.e., if I miss Tues workout and do it Wednesday, I need Thurs to recover to hit the usual body parts. Even though I am not working those muscle groups, my body just wants to time off.
Anyone else like this?
