    Only have time to train twice a week :(

    With the demanding job and recent promotion, at the moment I only have 2 days in my week to get to the gym.

    Age: 34
    Height: 5'10'
    Weight: 172 lbs
    Body fat %: 18%

    Looking to get down to around 13/14% body fat and then commence clean bulk.

    at the moment my 2-day split is as follows:

    Workout A - Push/Pull
    - Deadlift - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range
    - Bench press - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range
    - Barbell row - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range
    - Overhead barbell press - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range

    Workout B - Legs & Push
    - Bench press - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range
    - Squat - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range
    - Leg press - 3 sets x 8-10 rep range
    - RDL - 3 sets x 4-6 rep range

    Do you think there is anything I should change to this workout? Should I add some accessory work where there are some imbalance?

    Appreciate the feedback.
    I'm 34 not 48.

    Question: what time do you start work and what time do you get up in the morning? You don’t have time to train more than twice a week you say so what are you working like 3am to 7 pm or something where you only have time to eat and then go to bed?

    I hope you don’t think I’m trying to be a sarcastic jerk but the thing is we see threads all the time where people claim they don’t have time to train more than 1-2 times a week. Anything is better than nothing of course but I just don’t understand when people say they can’t set aside 45 min to get that third training session in. Nobody is saying you have to workout 2 hrs a day 6 days a week. But at the very least a 3 day full body?

    Plenty of us have demanding jobs, kids and wives, maybe even college and still get it in. Some of us are up at 3-4 am to train.

    Most often it’s not that you don’t have time it’s that you’re not making the time. It’s a time management issue.

    Again, don’t take this the wrong way. I’m trying to help you. I know what it’s like to have a crazy busy schedule. I used to work a job that had me on call 24/7. Little sleep, crazy hours but still gotta get that workout in 6 days a week.
    - Your mindset influences your outcome. It's time to take out phrases like "I can't" or "I don't have time" and replace them with phrases like "I will make the time" and "I will keep working at it until I find a way that works." Success starts with the right mindset and believing in yourself and your dreams.
