    should you choose to except it.

    i'll try to make this as simple as possible.

    basically, this is a list of what i have and the goal i want to accomplish with those things:

    backyard gym = barbell, ezcurl bar, squat stands, bench, weights, rubber matting, chalk (can use squat stands for dips, fyi)

    i'd been doing a sort of 5x5 type routine, squats monday, wed, friday, bench and deads every other workout, standing military and power cleans on non-bench/dead day.

    the problem: i've started surfing and i really can only go @ 6am. weight workouts are at 6-7PM. so in the morning for surfing, i'm already beat down.

    i would like some kind of endurance type routine that i can split into 2 workouts that cover the whole body, instead of strength specific routine that is the same.

    meaning i can do workout A monday, B wednesday, A friday, next week is B monday, A wed, B friday etc.

    i've tried a few things but i dont know wtf I'm doing, really, so need some suggestions.

    I'm guessing some high rep low weight stuff should be good but i dont really know how much volume is too much?

    obviously cable stuff is out. right now i'm pretty much limited to squats, bench, deads, power cleans, standing barbell things, barbell curls, etc.

    and pullups between the stands.

    thanks in advance, i know this is probably a mess, i'm rushing thru it. :eek4:

    Yeah P90X is known as the beach body routine, I got laughed at last time I mentioned it but it looks like an intense workout. I have the videos, you can get the log books and stuff like that online ...

    instead of 10 set of 100 curls, just do 1000 curls straight. :mamoru:

    why not do the same routine and instead of going heavy and beating yourself up go for 4x12 or something? :dunno:



    barbell complexes could be done on off-days pretty easily... just replace 20 mins of F&N time with em and you'll be good to go :mamoru: they might even help with recovery.

    i thought about doing the same routine with 4x12 but i was thinking that would be too much volume?

    unless maybe i can just split up the volume somehow...

    like if i'm doing 5x5, that's 25 reps. so if i do 3x10 or 3x12 maybe?

    dunno

    :dunno: I'm doing 4 x 8-12 on most of my exercises now except deadlifts and I like it.

    Honestly I think 5x5 is more rough on my body personally than higher volume stuff... but also I'm doing a bodypart split so I have 6 days to recover and do more exercises per bodypart at a time... I guess the best thing is to experiment with what works best for you given your surfing schedule and recovery rate
