    I need to start lifting again. But trying to squeeze it into my schedule is making me nuts. Here's a typical 2 week period for me:

    Week 1:

    Sunday - Off
    Monday - Wake up @ 5:45, hour commute to be at work at 7:30, off @ 5:30, hour commute home, BJJ class from 7:30 to 9:00 (or 9:15, or 9:30, depending on what we're doing)
    Tuesday - 5:45 wakeup, work @ 7:30, off @ 5:30
    Wednesday - Same as Monday
    Thursday - Same as Tuesday
    Friday - Wake up around 6, at work around 8, off around 4
    Saturday - Off

    Week 2:

    Same as above, but with Friday off.

    The lifting program I did prior to Katrina that I liked and saw results with was 4 days of lifting (2 days back, chest, bis, tris/ 2 days legs/shoulders), 2 days of abs/cardio. I figure that dropping the abs/cardio is fine with the BJJ.



    I'd also like to get my wife to workout with me, but on a different weight training schedule, where she's lifting 3 times a week, different body parts for each workout.

    Roughly, I'm seeing my schedule being as follows:

    Sun: Off
    Mon: BJJ
    Tues: WO 1 (after work)
    Wed: BJJ
    Thur: WO2 (after work)
    Fri: WO1 (after work, or morning if it's a Friday I'm off work)
    Sat: WO2 (morning)

    Is lifting 3 days a week going to be an issue? I'd like to not do lower body work on a day prior to BJJ. And my wife would lift with me on Tue, Thur, and Sat, albeit on her own program.

    MTWRF: Get to gym by 5:45-6, lift for 45min to an hour, shower at gym, go to BJJ class (which, I assume, has something to do with giving blow jobs:o:confused:).

    you know, you should just write out your routine so we can sticky it and refer everyone to that thread so that they can become mini ISWs
