day 6 legs
day 7 off
as far as a routine? I have always been intrigued by Power and strength. I was actually thinking about the Bill Kazmaier routine and tweeking it out a bit. I am alittle afraid of pushing my shoulder to the limit though (hense the no more competiing). Unfortunatley for work I cant kill myself in the gym. Im a police officer so I should always save a little in the tank for work.....(I work in Detroit, so there is always the opportunity for things to go south quickly). Im gonna try to start running atleast 3-4 days per week. I found an ex-navy seal (Stew Smith) been following his ideas for years. He has a beginner running program that I thought looked easy enough.
Hopefully your DOMs will improve after a month. The 4 day split above is pretty close to what I run (for the most part). When I started back at it, I was doing only pushups, situps and chair dips and the DOMs was bad.

I prefer to get in, workout, and get out. About 45 to 50 minutes is my limit. I like to save some in the tank too, just to have energy for my wife and kids.

Does your shoulder bother you more on pressing movements, or on squats?
