so how retarded would it be split a workout into 2 workouts on a given day?

    like if you dont have a full hour+ to workout, but you can do half a workout at lunch and then the other half after work?

    i'm getting back into it but trying to schedule everything so it's convenient.

    doing rippetoe, i do squats first every workout, 3 days a week. i could do squats at lunch every workout day and then do the rest when i get home, after i pickup my son, or in the gym before i pickup my son.

    the issue is i dont have time to do the full workout and still be on time to pickup my son, if i use the gym. i can do the full workout after i pick him up, if i do it at home.

    or, i can do partial workout after work, pick him up, and finish workout at home.

    i just tried it at lunch and was able to get 2 exercises in.

    bench with reps of 5,5,3,2,2,5,5,5
    and deads with reps of 5,5,3,2,2,5

    squat rack was taken or i'd have done that first.

    I'm sure there are plenty of professionals that split routines on a given day.
