I started a gym routine 2 months ago consisting of just Pull-ups, Bench presses, Squats(with barbell), Dead-lifts and Military Presses And for the abs Hanging L raises, Russian twists and planks.
I really love the compound movements and core engagement.
I do it 3 times a week, Sunday Tuesday and Thursday.
I also occasionally (1-2 times a week) do a mini-core exercise at home consisting of planks, Russian twists, ab crunches and arch holds, external rotator cuff for the shoulders, starting with some Yoga movements.
My questions is, am I pushing too much? should a rest day be absolutely resting, or are the Abs/Lower Back/Yoga on "Rest" days is OK?
If its OK, is it also good to add exercises like the ab wheel and L-seat to the off days routine? I think this may be different as the strain on upper body is bigger with these exercises.
