    workout routine question

    Hello bees, I have one idea for myself but I would like to consult with all of you before star doing it. So, the thing is that I am limited with the days that I can train on. I got only 4 days per week when I can do the workout and I was thinking about the ways of splitting the routines so that I can cover the entire body in those 4 days weekly. I am slightly overweight, got 10kg left to loose, but I don't want to neglect the strenght workouts too.
    What I had in my mind is to maybe divide workouts like :

    Monday : upperbody/legs workout
    Tuesday : cardio/abs
    Wednesday/Thursday : no time to workout (too busy)
    Friday: upperbody / legs
    Saturday: cardio/abs
    Sunday: again no time here an entire day

    Would this routine be fruitfull for me ,and if yes, what kinds of workouts would you suggest me to do? When it comes to upperbody strenght routines, I have a set of heavy dumbbells that I enjoy working with, and for everything else I guess there is no equipment needed.
    Thanks for the help in advance everyone!

    Your idea is doable and you have to try to see, if it works well for you.

    Another idea: Do the days of the Ironborn program and add some cardio afterwards. Cause Ironborn is done in about 20 min you could do cardio on mo/fri and a HIIT workout on tu/sa.

      Actually my upperbody routine is based on Ironborn workouts, combined with leg excercises from another workouts. I wanted to start following the Darebees WOD originally, but since the workouts go in a general fitness order, it happened to me that I did for example ABS routine and then skipped WOD for 2 days and when I came back for the next WOD it was something connected to the ABS again, so I was thinking to make my own program for these 4 days that I can workout.

        HI equinox . Maybe its better to split the upper body and legs days. Have you seen the Training Plans? 'Gladiator' looks like what You are looking for. You could do abs on a rest/casual training day, see last paragraph. You can filter (e.g. upperbody, difficulty :4, equipment: dumbells) the workouts accordingly on the workout-page, to get a more specific training plan.

          How do you get ironborn done in 20 minutes?

          I do ironborn with 30 second active rests between sets (high knees) and 1 minute active rests (jump rope) between exercises I add 100 jumping jacks before and after and 50 speedbag hits after. It takes me 35-50 minutes.

            Adding active rest in between sets and reps of the ironborn sound like a good idea. I might try that. Also, would it give results if I go through the Ironborn again ,but with these rest days that I mentioned where I got no time to workout?

              Most days have 4 exercises:
              I need about 30 sec for one set, that is 3,5min per exercise including rest.
              what means 14 min for all exercises plus 6min rest time and leads to 20min in total.

                I think my add-ons add up. Plus I am slow.
