    For the longest time I have been doing split routines. They would be MWF and would basically be 3-4 variations of a movement, so Push day would be Pushups, Diamonds and Uneven. Usually 2-3 sets each. This felt a little rough on my joints and rotator cuffs. So I switched to a MWF full body routine, still doing the three variations but only one set each. This left my wrist especially sore. So now I’m trying Veterano and it feels super weird only doing 2-3 sets a day.

    What I loved most about the full body routine was the practice I got in each movement, with only a day between each workout I felt like I “remembered” how to do each movement better BUT the frequency was hurting.

    It also feels good to work on “fresh” strength with the Veterano routine. So I dunno. I’m trying to figure out a good mix of both. Maybe full body with only two variations tops and one set each? I dunno.

    Here’s my original workout:

    Mondays – PULLUPS
    ============================
    10 Dislocations
    10 Scap Pullups
    20 Arm Circles, both directions

    3×9 Pullups
    3×5 Chinups
    3×5 Pullups

    TUESDAY – BRIDGES, STANDS
    ============================
    15 Glute Bridges
    30 Wrist Stretch

    2×6 Wall Walk Bridges
    1x30s Crow to Headstand
    3x30s Wall Headstand

    WEDNESDAY – SQUATS
    ============================
    10 Forward Leg Swing
    10 Lateral Leg Swing
    25 Squats

    4 Negative Pistols
    3×25 Close Squats
    3×10 Step Ups

    THURSDAY – BRIDGES, STANDS
    ============================
    15 Short Bridges
    30s Wrist Stretch

    2×10 Walk Down Bridges
    1x30s Crow to Headstand
    3x30s Wall Headstand

    FRIDAY – PUSHUPS
    ============================
    10 Dislocations
    5 Pushups
    5 Hindu Pushups

    3×25 Pushups
    2×10 Close Pushups
    2×5 One Arm Assisted Pushups

    Here’s my new Veterano routine: (the first exercise in each workout is the warmup)

    MONDAY – PULLUPS
    10 Horizontal Pull-Ups, 20 Upright Rows
    2×8 Pull-Ups
    1×10 Chin-Ups

    TUESDAY – BRIDGES
    50 Short Bridges
    2×10 Bridges
    1×3 Wall Walks

    WEDNESDAY – HANDSTAND
    30s Crow to Headstand
    30s Crow Stand
    1 Minute Wall Headstand
    1 Minute Free Headstand

    THURSDAY – SQUATS
    5x15s Pistol Balance
    30 Full Squats
    2×20 Close Squats

    FRIDAY – PUSHUPS
    10 Hindu Pushups
    2×20 Pushups
    1×10 Close Pushups

    (I do ab work every morning) Another goal is to save time, I have very little time during the day and/or after work so the Veterano is the most convenient. I dunno. Any suggestions?
