Need Help Optimizing Weekly Routine/Legs
Quick background: I have some issues with my legs that prevent me from doing a full blown leg workout. Right now my leg workout consists of this:
- 3 sets of 6-8 DB squats
- 3 sets of 8 one-leg calf raises
- 3 sets of 8 straight-legged deadlift (not 100% leg-related, I know, but I lump it in with legs)
Anyway, it's a very lean leg workout, I know. But for medical reasons that I don't have the time to get into now, let's just accept that I can't do any more than that.
So here's my problem: I work arms/shoulders on monday and chest/back on wednesday. I can do that workout just fine. So I have two really excellent upper-body days a week, followed by one kind of weak lower-body day a week (I workout 3 days as week total as you can see).
My question is, since my leg routine can't really be improved, should I add something else to that day as well? Perhaps some extra arm/chest stuff? Even though I don't have any real choice, I feel like the leg day is almost wasted, leaving me with only two full-intensity workout days a week.
