    Post your Lifting schedule,

    I'm interested in what others are doing.
    I tend to work out five to six days a week and cycle through a Leg day, a Shoulders and Back day and a Chest and Arms day. I begin each work out with twenty minutes of jogging breaking it up with one minute of jogging and one minute of sprinting.

    I'm getting good results but, I'm having issues with my old legs not recovering as quick as I would like and some general annoying soreness. I would prefer to refine it a bit and see if I cant do better.
    Is there something I'm missing?

    For all but a small % of lifters, most people will derive best bang for % doing whole body, or at least upper/lower splits. Staley always has good intel:

    I tend to workout every other day in terms of RT, and between that, ride my bike, swim, walk dog on beach, etc. Some times I replace a leg day with HIIT, may just do a whole body circuit conditioning work and mobility work, foam rolling and such. Non impactive conditioning work.

    Goals: Maintenance of FFM and general health, not adding to existing injuries (torn rotator mostly) or causing new injuries due to my 50+ year old brain/ego thinking I have a 20+ year old body.

    My workout schedule is actually almost exactly the same. I also do about 20 min of cardio.

    The biggest difference for me in regards to recovery has been my diet all Whole Foods and supplementation and of course plenty of sleep.

    I workout every other day; either whole body or upper/lower split days depending on what my trainer has programmed for the week. They are crossfit(ish) as in a crossfit type workout but utilizing proper technique and form. i.e no kipping etc. Each workout has at least one 3 circuit set or AMREPS for time, but the focus never gives up form and technique for time.
