Hi! I'm on a very tight schedule when I'm at the gym... I have about 55 minutes for my workout and at my current pace I would need about 65-70 minutes so I need to cut 10 ro 15 minutes. Here's how my workout currently looks like:
Day 1 : Chest-Triceps-Forearms-Abs
DB Bench press (3x10)
DB Incline Bench press
DB Lying Triceps extention (4x10)
DB Wrist Curl (3x10)
DB Reverse Wrist Curl (3x10)
Day 2 : Back-Biceps-Abs
Cable Front pulldown (3x10)
Cable Close Grip Pulldown (3x10)
Cable Seated row (3x10)
BB Shrug (3x10)
DB Curl (3x10)
DB Hammer curl (3x10)
Day 3 : Shoulders-Legs-Abs
Leg press (3x10)
Leg extension (3x10)
Leg curl (3x10)
Calf press (3x10)
DB Shoulder press (3x10)
DB Lateral raise (3x10)
DB Lying rear lateral raise
Before starting to lift I stretch my legs for 2 minutes then I run for 5 minutes to warm up and then I stretch the muscles I will work that day for about 4-5 minutes. At the end of my workout I do another 4-5 minutes of stretching. So basically that leaves me with about 40 minutes to do all my sets.
Could you please tell me what would you choose between these options or if you have other ideas to shorten my workout...
A : Take out the running at the beggining.. I was told it was very important to warm up the metabolism before doing some weight training but do you think it's really necessary?
B : Do the crunchs at home.. I will do that if there's no other solution but that would only cut about 5 minutes out of my workout and I prefer to do everything at the gym so when I come out of there I'm done for the day.
C : Take out some exercises.. It would be the best solution but I don't know which exercises my workout could live without.
D : Do less repetitions.. I would gladly do it if you guys tell me it wouldn't harm my progress.
I'm awaiting you're suggestions and I hope you can help me.. thanks in advance!
