Suppose I have a gym routine that I want to fulfil, with the goal of strengthening a particular set of muscles. (I don't care about increasing bulk or definition at all).
The current plan is gym sessions that are 3 sets of 10 reps on each of a couple of excercises that work those muscles. Done in an ABC_ABC_ABC pattern. The sessions take me ~30-45 minutes and get me moderately sweaty, and I'm gradually increasing the load on all the excercises.
Currently my biggest problem is actually DOING the session - I put them off and skip them :(
One way that I think would make it easier for me to actually do them would be to split the excercise up. Say first thing in the morning I do just the first set, or the first block of set, then a few hours later I do another set/block, then I do my last set/block at the end of the day.
I think that I will be more likely to succesfully DO that routine.
What would be the effect of that change? Does doing the excercises all together make a difference? Or does it not matter when I do stuff as long as I do the whole routine by the end of the day?
Context which may or may not be relevant?
I am specifically trying to fully recover an on-going hamstring injury. I have twice recovered to the point where I had no pain or range issues, including being able to train and sprint fully, and then during the first or second 100% pace match have re-pulled the hamstring.
Specific excerices are a combination of Double leg RDLs (X kg), Double-leg Good Mornings (X kg), Single-leg RDLs (~60% of X kg), Side leg raises, Side planks.
I have a small work gym, hence it is plausible to just walk in, do a set and walk back out
