I try to do 4 days of cardio, but I also have a pretty physical job,so doesn't happen if I do a 12 hr shift.
I do the elliptical, I'm competitive with myself so I always trying to be my times while doing high intensity intervals, or I'm always adding to the level. I keep saying I'm going to try some of the free classes at the gym, but I never do.they have all kinds. In summer ill probably start swimming again. I'd love to do a hip hop class.
I try to do one day a week of arms/back and the other day core/abs and butt. I don't focus too much on legs because of my active job. It's more focusing on core and strength so I stay safe at my job. It's nice when I can safely pull a patient to a gurney with a medic and they look impressed.
My main weights are full body, squats, planks, chin lifts (assisted pull ups) ,modified push ups, etc.
my goal is to do a pull up before IanG. You just find thinks that motivate you.

So if I just weight train, I can go full out and rest before my cardio session in which I can go full out in that.
Gotcha...cool..just curious that's all
