Basically, i want something that is gonna be very simplistic, basic, as i am working out in my gargage gym. I am also a teacher and football coach, so my time is very limited. Anyway, what are your opinions of a good routine? that seems pretty sound and hits bodyparts directly and indirectly 2x/week.
I want something similar to this...but i dont wanna do squats and deads on the same day....
what has worked well for u ?
inc. bench: 2x6-8
seated military: 2x6-8
db calf raise: 2x6-8 (they're easy on the lower back)
bb curl: 2x6-8
BB row: 2x6-8

It'll probably work fairly well....give it a try and if you get results, you get results Its not an illogical program.....so, looks good to me.

Just started it this week and already like it pretty good. Basically the workouts are quick and u are hitting the core lifts. I workout out in my garage with a rack cage system and my setup is pretty sweet. Ill keep ya posted

I did something very similar this summer because I was always so tired from working that I barely had any energy for the gym. I liked it, strength increased, I dont know how it would be for size gains, since it was summer when I tried it I cant gain size for anything during the summer, keep us posted.

hey nate dogg, I feel the same way about gaining muscle during the summer. why do you think that is?
For some reason it just comes on easier in the fall/winter. I think part of it is because of a schedule with school, plus not so much partying and working like the summer.
But for the thread starter: Just remember not to go to failure if you're going to hit the same muscle group twice in one week. IMO I tried push/pull and HST (full body workout 3x per wk), and liked HST better.

For me, I am working so much during the summer it messes with my lifting schedule and diet big time, a 12hr day is a little on the short side for me during the summer. I have a fast metabolism anyways, and then put on top of that working and being active out in the heat and that is alot more calories burned. I have been able to gain a little strength during the summer, but I always lose weight, never fails.
