Irregular workout days, need routine help

  1. Irregular workout days, need routine help


    I've worked the typical 3 days split for a long time. It works well for me so long as I change it up a bit. Recently I also started trying Max-OT within the limits of my weight set. I really liked it.
    Of course I only have freeweights (no barbell only dumbbells) so I'm limited both by weight and exercise type. Currently I have enough weight to put 55lbs on each dumbell, which is plenty except for squat and db press. In which case I substitute with med to high reps.

    But, I am now getting a divorce and I have 2 kids. So I can only really work out on days they are with their mother.

    As it is, a typical 2 weeks works out like this:
    Sun: no kids
    Mon: kids
    Tue: kids
    Wed: kids
    thur: no kids
    fri: no kids
    Sat: kids
    Sun: kids
    Mon: no kids
    tues: no kids
    weds: no kids
    thr: kids
    Fri: kids
    Sat: no kids

    repeat

    So, I can't do a 3 day split, plus on Tues/Thrus that I do not have the kids I am in Hapkido, so I can't lift then either.

    I was considering just doing a Chest/tri and Back/bi split. So every day that I can I do one or the other.

    Good idea or bad idea? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    This is what I'd do.

    Sun: no kids --- Full Body
    Mon: kids
    Tue: kids
    Wed: kids
    thur: no kids --- Chest/Back
    fri: no kids --- Legs
    Sat: kids
    Sun: kids
    Mon: no kids ---- Chest
    tues: no kids ----Back
    weds: no kids ----- Legs
    thr: kids
    Fri: kids
    Sat: no kids ---- Full Body (assuming you have the kids the next day)

  3. Looks good. The sat with no kids is followed up with the sunday with no kids.

    Thanks, I'll start looking at my exercises and see what works/what I want to do on the full body workout days. Don't know why, but I didn't even think about that.
