    AM/PM Split Questions

    If you were going to split your workouts betwen AM and PM how owuld you do it?

    I plan on doing this on certain days. I would do standup training in one session and weights the other 3x a week. Does it matter which I do first? They would just be 1-1 1/2 hours long, no more then that M/W/F. Any thing I should be aware of?

    Apparently if you lift anything over 100lbs before 10.17am, you die of a stroke.
    Apart from that you should be fine. Don't forget to have porridge for breakfast.

    Very funny.

    I meant does it matter if I do weights and then standup(cardio) or the other way around?

    Theories abound. But I have my own theory: If you warm up, stay warm, and stretch regularly, then it shouldn't matter what order you do resistance and cardio training, nor what time of day you do it.

    I'm currently skint, so my resistance/cardio work involves running up and down a hill, and doing stuff like chin ups off bus stops and railings, and pressups with my feet on benches. I must look like a ****, but it gets the job done.

    If I had a choice, I'd lift in the morning and do cardio later.

    THat's how my schedule works out - lifting during the late morning, bicycling in the evening.

    Lift in the morning so that you are 100% and use good technique. Later you'll already be tired, so your technique will suffer. And when you're lifting, you don't want to risk having random body parts exploding.

    Cool, thanks. Thats what I thought but I wanted to know from people who do it. Well I just got back from the gym(a little later then usual, I wanted to be back at 1:30) and I am getting up at about 1030 to go do it again.


    EDIT : BTW, I just hit 100lbs in the bench press. No not a barbell, IN EACH HAND!!! MWAAHAHAHAHA.

    Ok Im excited get over it and let me enjoy this.

    200lbs dumbbell bench is pretty impressive from my standpoint. I'm working through 45-50 in each hand now.

    Also impressive that your gym has heavier than 50lbs. Apparently, there's liability issues over how heavy a dumbbell a gym can have.

    When I was still working at a fitness store, we had a guy order in I think up to 140's. He lifted one in each hand and just walked to his car. It was amazing. I mean, a 280 deadlift isn't so much, but he'll be using them for much more than that. Apparently he's a pro body builder or something.

    **** off Poop Loops, your ruining my moment!

    Seriously thats insane though. I can get the weight to the bench and such all on my own, but its not the easiest thing ever.

    I think I might focus on reps now for awhile instead of weight now.
