So the uphill book for general strength says warm up do core and then work out. But the core exercises are plank, windshield, kayaker and trunk rotation but in Scott’s he includes more exercises. Which ones should I be focusing on?
Also for general strength the book hits box step ups, step down, push ups, pull ups, front lunges but in the PDF you can download it has more like Turkish get ups, split squats, dips. Which ones should I focus on or should I mix the exercises up?
As for volume, im in my 40s and the book recommends 350hrs a year, so that’s 7hrs a week in 50 weeks. I’m a dad of a young family and going back to work soon so how am I supposed to spend time with my kids and family if im working a full time job and doing 7hrs a week in workouts? I know its individual adjusting but what’s realistic to maintain strength and not slip into getting ads again? I almost have my AeT within 10% of my AnT, I just don’t want to loose the progress I’ve made since its taken me about 6months to get where I’m at and I’ve been off work for the past year and now that I’m starting a new job in a few weeks I’ve been lucky to get in 3 to 5hrs of training in.
I’m thinking if I can get 45min of a workout in before work at least 3 to 4 times Monday through Friday then 1 or 2 workouts on the weekend that would give me 3 to 4hrs a week in. Is that enough? Better than nothing that’s for sure!
