I take advantage of any opportunity that i can. right now with my schedule bicyling is not my main exercise mode. that will change in the summer with more light and kid out of school so there is more commuting.
Fortunately this year a bunch of things came to gether...fitness center at work, my son rehabbing his knee from ACR surgery and him having to be at school at 6:30 for football conditioning
a pefrectweek might look like this....less perfect is just less
Mon, tues, Thurs, Friday workout at work fitness center. Aerobic is 24 min on a techno gym elliptical on interval setting. I use a HRM and chart my workouts, when my average heart rate on this goes down I up the effort level
Mon and Friday add a weight workout. 5 reps each/5 sets set = squats, trx rows, bench press with dumbells, row with dumbells, clean jerk press with dumbell, biceps with dumbells, triceps with dumbells if things are going I will add a weight session of kettlebell swings, one legged romananian deadlifts, "lay on fitness ball and extend medicine ball over head"
evenings and weekends (2- 4 times a week) i go to our family fitness club and swim, spin cycle, intervalls on rowing machine, treadmill with (or at least at the same time) as my son works on knee rehab.
