I have a calf strain from overuse. Itís the 2nd time Iíve gotten it in less than 5 weeks. Iím going to refocus my workout for the next 3-4 weeks. Aside from my calf, my legs just feels overly fatigued lately so maybe Iíve been overtraining my lower body in general.
I put together a 3-day split that doesn't include any leg work. It has focused days for chest, back and shoulders. I added arm and core work to round things out in each workout and Iím planning to add 20 minutes of bike or rowing to get the heart rate up a couple of times per week. Saturdays I work out with my trainer
I'm still working out all the sets and reps but but I would appreciate your opinions of the workout and if you think this is a good approach for a while? Thanks in advance.
