I am going to start this routine in June and I am trying to fit it into my schedule. It seems like day 1 is a longer workout in terms of time spent in the gym (the resting alone adds up to 50 minutes, if I am reading this right). Can anyone who is currently doing this split with the set/rep scheme Leah has set out tell me approx. how long each of the days would be?

Sorry if this seems stupid but my schedule, like a lot of others' is pretty tight.

The 5x6 day takes me at least an hour. Hour 15 is more likely.

The 2x15 day goes pretty quick; 30 minutes maybe

The 3x10 day takes some time because of the unilateral leg work -- about 45 minutes

I'm wondering if you would get the same results if you supersetted where possible or even just ran through each exercise circuit style to get the workout done more quickly? Anyone have any thoughts on this? The reason I ask of course is this is what I have to do in order to get Day#1 done in a reasonable amount of time! :oops: I don't have 1 1/2 hours to workout so I wonder if doing it the way I've been doing it will have the same benefits as doing the routine with the prescribed rests etc.

No, you wouldn't.

Why don't you think rest b/w sets is important? No rest = sacrificed loading.

1 1/2 hours? The above would take nowhere near that long.

It's the same for me. The longer rests make it longer but it's only one day so no big deal.

5x6 day takes me about 50 minutes. But I don't do the squats (don't ask :rolleyes: ).

What would be the optimum amount of rest time between sets no matter what routine you are doing?
or does it depend upon the workout?

It depends on the workout.

I don&#39;t see why you couldn&#39;t superset some exercises as long as you keep the same rest intervals. I wouldn&#39;t do circuit style at all though.

I find it hard that you don&#39;t have one day to set aside an hour, an hour and fifteen minutes of time for yourself...even if it&#39;s at 4:00 in the morning.

Excuse me? :blink: Unless you&#39;ve walked a mile in someone else&#39;s shoes, it&#39;s better to withhold judgement. I really hope I&#39;m just reading more attitude into this than what was intended.
