    Due to my current job, I am required to work out, do calisthenics 3x a week Monday Wed and Friday. These include your typical stupid fucking crunches, leg lifts, push ups and that type of fodder. Also we have to run at least a mile everyday we work out. Not enough to really kill me but enough to make me too tired to do my normal routine. I had been making good gains while I was off of this "program" but now I am back on this bullshit and I am trying to figure out if this is going to kill my real work out (3 day split deads, squat, ohp, etc.)?
    I kind of know the answer, but in a way, I just want to vent on the ridiculous shit I have to do for a paycheck!
    I had been doing the 2 day split months ago, but I got pretty sorry results. I just don't think 2 days are enough for me. To top it off I am a hardgainer and it takes all I can just to put on a couple pounds a month.

    Do BW+ exercises (weighted vests and so on) like squats, GMs, push-ups, pull-ups, etc.

    Tell them their workout is for pussies and suggest an alternative. Or tell them you do your own superior workouts at home.

    Or just do it and eat more. I can't see any reason why such a weak workout would hamper your lifting. Playing basketball 3-4 hours a week would be much more taxing..
