I'm not too sure how or why but I find myself in a position where i'm slowly obtaining more injuries year-by-year.
In college I could go to the gym 4/5 times a week, play football (soccer) or basketball on the same day.
Whilst I wasn't lifting as heavy back then as I am now (progression yay!), i'm doing much less exercise but feeling more pain, and more tired.
Monday: Chest + Legs (morning), Basketball (2 hours of scrimmage/training)
Tuesday: Back (morning), Basketball Game 40 mins max (evening)
Wednesday: Arms + Intense Core (morning), Football 2pm til dusk depending on numbers (afternoon/evening)
Thursday: Shoulders + Legs (morning, light legs), Football match 40 minutes max (evening)
Friday: Basketball (1hr 30 scrimmage)
Sunday: Once every 2 weeks, Basketball Training (Scrimmage, shooting drills, resistance)
Sunday: Chest + Leg
Monday:Rest, maybe light core workout at home, jump rope
Tuesday: Shoulders OR Back (depends on how busy gym is)
Wednesday: Football OR Gym (Arms and Core if I go)
Thursday: Back OR Shoulders (whichever I did not do on Tuesday)
Friday: Basketball (2 hours)
Saturday: Rest or depending on how I feel, I pick up whatever I feel wasn't done well during the week (Chest, Leg, Shoulders, Back, Arms whichever).
I am 2 years removed from College, and I never injured my body apart from the occasional ankle sprain.
I'm worried i'm not getting enough rest, but my body could take a larger beating beforehand, so i'm scared something is seriously wrong.
Can anyone recommend or make adjustments in my workout schedule or shed light on their experiences?
How do you balance your working life, sports, and lifting in the gym.
