I just started weightlifting again about 2 months ago after about an 8 month lay off. The last two months I've lifted 3 times a week, was doing a basic 5x5 type thing (squatting, benching, and rowing 2 days, ohp and deadlifting 1). I wanted to bump it up to 4 days a week doing a 5/3/1, however, I think this is a bad idea now that my work day as lengthened to about 12-14 hours. I'm working 4 days a week. I'm gonna drop my lifting to 2 days a week, my first 2 days off (sun, mon), and on my third day off (tue) I'd do martial arts training stuff. Martial arts training is technique/endurance work, not so much strength work. Here's what I was thinking to do on Sun/Mon: Sunday Squat 5/3/1 OHP 5/3/1 Chins 5x5-10 Shrugs 5x10 Romanian Deads 5x10 Monday Deadlift 5/3/1 Bench 5/3/1 BOR 5x10 Skull Crushers 4x10 Cheat Curls 4x10 And then Tuesday would be martial arts stuff, and then work wed-sat. My question is: My lifting sessions would be about 2 hours long here. Is this a problem, assuming my recovery capacity can handle it? I've heard that you should try to keep your lifting sessions short, but even a basic SS workout takes a good hour and a half. So if I can recover over the week, would this be alright or should I keep the assistance work more limited?
