I have been doing Thunder's Total Body Split, but with life getting a bit more crazy (classes on work days now) is there a way to create a two day split? I can do cardio at home, but I just don't have time to go to the gym as often.

Can one get away with only training 2x/week & still get as much benefit?

Not in my opinion nope.

So I won't get benefits from a 2 days training split? :( Is there a way to combine one of the days with cardio? I'm usually so dead after training that I barely have any energy for cardio left. Is there a way to alternate the split to have some room for cardio?

I never said you'd not get any benefit. The previous question asked if a person would get AS MUCH benefif, to which I think the answer is no.

Here's the problem I see with doing a 2 day split. It takes two days of training to do your pull, push. It takes another day of training to do legs... A 2 day split would mean that you would have to drop one of the above three... Drop one of the above three and you would stall out a growth program... However, if you just want to stay in a state of maintenance and do just enough to stay in shape and not get fat, then a 2 day split done with the right exercises could keep you on track... But remember, your really going to have to manage your diet and cardio...
