I've been going very regularly and have been using a H.I.T. routine on a two day split between upper and lower body workouts. I've just recently started doing cario interval training on my H.I.T. off days as well. So far I've liked the results, we'll just have to see if they keep going.

I usually start of with 15 min of cardio to get me warmed up then hit the weights. Usually 5-8 excercises per bodypart. I usually work chest and tri together back and bi and a seperate day for shoulders and legs and repeat arms after an off day. Occasionally I add chest and shoulders or chest and back together as well. I also do 30-45 min of cardio after my workout as well.

Sounds like you guys have some good routines. Mine is somewhat the same: 30-45 min cardio daily followed by weight training for 1 to 2 hrs. Day1;Chest/tri, Day2;Bicep/back/, Day3;Shoulders/traps, Day4;full body power lifts, and on each day one leg exercise. Depending on how busy my week is I might take a day off of my weights but always keep the cardio. Thats why I keep it to 4 days so I can be flexable during the week.

I like to think I have a good routine, but regardless of training style the most important thing is consistency. Show up every time you've scheduled yourself to do so. No matter what else is going on, barring injuries, be sure to hold those appointments.

Now, since you're busy this will be harder. Maybe you could set a couple of days as your workout days and have a floating day for when you have time? Just a thought.

After a while it will become a habit, and eventually it is second nature. I'm trying to develop my cardio as a habit. Hopefully in a couple of months it will be. Smile

xraylady65, do you mean the cardio machines like the treadmill or are you referring to the circuit training machines?

I'll assume you mean the circuit training for which I found an article that is worth reading if you're just starting out.

Watch out you even work through injuries?! I agree with stayng consistant, but I have to pay the bills. There is one thing you can't skip and that is the cardio, never miss the cardio.

Work out through injuries? No... "barring injuries" means "work out no matter what unless you're hurt!".

That said, I do work out when I am hurt, but only exercises that don't work the injured part of my body.

I completely understand about being busy. Making sure you get the cardio in will go a long way and it is a good start!
