    Monday - 45 min swim ~ 1mile
    Tuesday - Tempo run , Boxing class, Astanga Yoga (no teaching on Tuesday!)
    Wednesday - Spin class, pull-ups, dips, squats
    Thursday - Fartleks, weight training
    Friday - Easy run, Boxing class
    Saturday - Long run
    Sunday - Rest.

    Usually, the boxing class is a combo of cardio (rope), weight training, abs, and bag work. On Thursday, I try to hit whatever muscle groups I don't get to in class.

    Jen, just curious, are you talking body wieght squats, or squat rack squats? I don't think I have ever seen a woman do squat weight squats.

    Usually just body-weight squats. I do sometimes use the rack for stability when doing one-legged squats, but that's about it.

    What's the "Body____" stuff? Is it anything like body rock? Because I have been known to rock the body.

    Do any of you that are in the gym regularly go to a crowded gym?

    My school gym is almost always crowded (even at odd hours - that's what happens when the school is huge and you're in body-conscious LA). This means that when I go alone (almost always) it's hard to even get on a bench, either the regular flat ones or the press ones.

    I always feel like I don't want to try a really rigid workout, because then I'll end up wasting too much time waiting around for things to open up - a lot of the time I end up just using the Hammer Strength machines instead.

    How do you that work out in a crowded gym work around the crowdedness?

    My school gym is pretty crowded. But, my workout has the necessary flexibility because I don't have to work out in the same order every time. Yeah, waiting for benches is a bitch.

    Mine isn't very consistent, but I run about 30-40min 4-5x/week, and lift 1-2x, just doing some exercises for chest, back and abs, as all I really care about is solidifying my core and protecting my spine. I also don't enjoy lifting, running gives me a much better feeling, so it's where I concentrate.

    Bumping an old thread, but I figured I'd post it here instead of cluttering with section with another "workout routine" thread. Anyway, I wanted to get some feedback on a routine I took from an old Mens Health magazine.

    The routine is done 3 days a week with at least one day rest in between workouts.

    3x6 Barbell clean and press

    then

    Superset 1:
    3x8 Barbell Squat followed by 3x8 One-Arm Dumbell Row

    then

    Superset 2:
    3x8 Barbell Deadlift followed 30 second burpees

    I will probably add some cardio on my off days. Thoughts on this routine?
