for example, i did about 10 minutes of cardio in the morning, a 5 minute push ramp up (basically warm up sets), then 45 minutes of  push exercises (focusing on chest, shoulders and tris). i really hate exceeding 45 minutes of "working" sets. 

cool 🙂 i walk to work 40 mins each day and then whole body 3 times a week 

yours sounds sensible.

Just copped it  $350 for a pair is super cheap. If I were to buy a pair of regular 40s, 45s, and 50s I would be basically paying almost as much given how expensive they are nowadays

I need to get back to the gym   i got in much better shape last year when I was off work doing a 12 week challenge. Now I’m turning into TJ 

@-GD-X So the 552s are in stock at amazon and apparently its $350 for a PAIR of them? That seems like a damn good deal   Amazon.com : Bowflex SelectTech 552 Version 2 | Two Adjustable Medium

you could 🙂  but would be chill weight training days

ahhhh true. but i HATE being chill lol. i like to feel like i'm truly working the muscle to near-failure (never failure - little gains at a huge recovery cost).

it depends. i know a lot of people push for frequency, but you can still get pretty amazing results on a well programmed "bro split".  i hit every thing twice a week, with a combo of push, pull, legs, upper, lower.

sample of great 5 day "bro split" :

 

monday - incline bench press; flat bench press; leg press

 

tuesday - deadlifts; t rows; pull ups, standing calve raises

 

wednesday - military press; lateral raises; bent over raises

 

thursday - squats, lunges, RDLs, seated calve raises

 

friday - dips (or close grip bench), chin ups, overhead tricep extensions, concentration curls

 

(abs can be sprinkled throughout, or done on the weekends)

 

notice how each muscle gets hit 2 to 3 times a week.

definitely! i even find 5 days of training can be a lot. 4 is usually the sweet spot. or if my diet suck, i'll do 3, but i'll do an "about 2 days" 3 day splt

 

so...

upper monday; lower wednesday; upper friday

then

lower monday; upper wednesday; lower friday

 

then repeat both weeks. it's one of the best ways to build muscle with minimal time and energy. each muscle gets hit every 4 or 5 days.

as in..if i tried to do 5 full body workouts a week lol 

i think we are talking about 2 different things here lol.

 

unless one is on gear, and has the best programmed routine, one couldn't do 5 full body routines. that would be insane!

yup. it's do-able, but it would be boring af. you would never feel like the muscle was being worked. i only recommend someone train the same muscle daily if they are trying to improve a technique. for example, i created a pull up regimen for people trying to learn how to get better at the exercise. so, it's not about exhausting the lats. it's just about cns programming, improving grip strength and getting better at scapular engagement.  the lats do get worked/stronger, but they never come close to failure.

if done correctly, 0 injuries. gymnasts train nearly every day. olympic powerlifters lift nearly every day. it's all about super smart programming and diet.
