With the idea of making my workouts more functional to my daily life I started concentrating the beginning of my sessions with a short muscle group specific routine of 3-5 exercises per group and then follow up with a short circuit intended to introduce some functional movement, cardio, and strength. Truth is I’m no personal trainer and I don’t know if doing this is better or worse for muscular development. What I do know is my schedule can be hectic at times and I find this way to be much more enjoyable and flexible for me. The best exercise routine is the one that you do consistently.
