  1. Pretty brutal. These shake up my brain can! Trying to juggle the new baby, work, reading, gaming and workouts is pretty tough when I have to be able to drop any one of these when the 1st one comes a knockin’. For those in a similar boat as me, only a good diet and existing muscle can keep fat off with only 3-4 days of 40 minute workouts. When i’m able to sort some things out, and after the boy grows a little more self-dependent, i’d like to give this routine a shot. For now I’ve been sticking to a scant 3-4 sets of everything: 1st day bench, tricep rope pulls, bicep curl bar, standing military presses out of a dead lift and behind the neck with the olympic bar and on the 2nd day heavy squats or lunges and pullups, followed up by rows. It might take me an hour if I allow myself to get distracted. I do the 1st one on Mondays and Thursdays, legs on Tuesday or Wednesday. Nothing compared to a more solid schedule, but I have actually seen muscle gain with even this dumbed down last resort routine.
