Am 44 years old. Want to improve my endurance and stamina. Was doing regular weight training and cardio till a year back. Last one year did mostly yoga. Now i wish to start weight training and cardio again to improve stamina and endurance. Also dont wish to loose benefits of yoga. Hence looking for a workout plan combining these three during every week. I can spend an hour every day.
As suggested by all of the responses, there are a lot of options with regard to how you combine your workouts. Both Nancy’s and Paul’s suggestion can be effective. Christine’s reference to “heavy enough” resistance for strength training is important. The exercises you select should ideally take the target muscle(s) to temporary failure by about 12 rep max. Also I suggest that you perform the strength and flexibility exercises following your cardio workout, as Nancy suggests, when muscles and connective tissues are warmed. I definitely agree that you schedule at least one day/week for rest, recovery and repacking of glycogen into the skeletal muscles.
Whether you perform your strength and hypertrophy exercises on the same day, or on alternate days, be sure to do a warm-up set prior to RM sets to increase the temperature in the milieu of the target muscle(s).
