What if I just do the Pull-ups and the Push-ups?

Postby Pedroptz » Tue Apr 17, 2012 2:10 pm

I'm currently training at a soccer team, I have to train 3 times a week (Monday,Wednesday and Friday) and it really takes a toll on my legs, and at the same time I don't exercise my upper body, I tried doing the Simplefit workout like I used to, but my legs are too damn sore for me to do squats.

What do you think if I do something like this:

I train on Monday, I do the Simplefit workout on Tuesday (without the squats), train on Wednesday, Simplefit on Thursday, train on Friday, and finally, I set my 3rd day to Sunday, so I'm not sore anymore and I can do my squats, and like that, I'm able to check my time and improve or decrease my level.

The main motivation for me to give this program a try is because it includes squats.

Why be a slave to a 7 day week?

I'd be tempted to spread your workouts over a longer period. It might take longer to get through levels but that's not a bad thing.

I do mine every 3 or 4 days.

You need to recover otherwise you will just burn out.

Clearly your legs are getting the workout they need in soccer. How you do simplefit is, of course, totally up to you. I'm a runner, so also found the squats somewhat inconsequential at first. Overtime, I've appreciated them more both because they do start to get more challenging as the numbers increase, and they help keep your heart rate up for the other exercises. It's also nice that if you do things a little more regulation it is easier to compare to the progress that others are making.
