How much TV do you watch a week?

I personally save my TV time for the weekends. In this day and age of TiVo, Hulu and On Demand, I can pretty much watch what I want, when i want to watch it.
That is a great idea. many of us do not realize how much tv we actually watch.

But you could do it all along.... you just have to click your heels together three times..... and then go and smash the shit out of the squat rack.

Get to it! And start a log!

If I was doing two days a week as a relative beginer, I'd go for Squats and bench one day, then deadlift and overhead press the other. Both days in 5x5 Bill Starr style. Start every exercise with 5 reps with 35% of 1 rep max, then 5x 70%, 80%, and 90%, 100% etc. Throw in some heavy rows the first day, and some max chinups the second and you're golden.

You didn't mention your goals, but consistent progress on the main core lifts and you will hit them sooner rather than later.

Okay thanks for the words Beast. I know I can do it and I am clicking my heels together!

Be sure to work hard on all your sets. This does not mean lift ridiculous weights concerning your experience. If you squatted, benched and rowed well enough, with enough hard effort, you could show up once a week and make amazing gains - I did.

You must plan for progression.

Personally, concerning time for lifting, I am so far into the Iron that the time I need finds me...

Dude I only work out twice a week. I usually do it on Tuesdays and Friday or Saturdays. Never do I schedule a time to do it on Mondays. They just do not work for me. the above schedule works pretty well.

If this is something you truly want with all your heart you will make the time. You can do it. Just rearrange your schedule and soon it will all fall into place.
