New Training Program - Seeking Advice
I've been training for around 8 months now. I trained before but it's more of a stop and go routine...
Anyway, I'm looking for a new program that also improves cardiovascular and muscular endurance. The catch is, I can only train 3 times a week.
Up to now, I've been using the Starting Strength program, here are my stats :
Age : 28 Years
Weight : 166 Lbs.
Height : 5'4" (Yes, I'm short, it sucks. Puns are welcome.)
The stats here are at 5 reps x 3 sets unassisted. They are NOT my 1 RM because I've never tried it before.
Workout A :
Dumbell Bench Press 140 Lbs.
Bent Over Barbel row 130 Lbs.
Squat : 200 Lbs.
Workout B :
Dumbell Military Press 100 Lbs.
Chin Up : 6 Reps x 3 Sets
Deadlift : 209 Lbs.
Here's a program I "made" myself :
Week A (Endurance Week):
Workout A & B (2 Days): 65-70%RM, 10 x 2
Then Cardio for the 3rd Day
Week B (Strength Week):
Workout A & B (2 Days): at 5RM x 3
Then a Deload/Light Cardio for the 3rd Day
How does this look? I know it's not starting strength anymore.
I tried doing HIIT after SS, but it over trained me and got sick for 2 weeks, I'm still somewhat recovering from the post-flu.
I don't care if CT Fletcher calls me a wuss.
Doesn't help that I don't use supplements.
I'm using SS program. I want strength, muscular and cardiovascular endurance. SS doesn't give me that. I don't use supplements.
