Usually my strength training plan is to work one muscle group a day (either upper, lower, or core), 4 times a week. (around 15lbs weights, 20-30 reps. For less than 30 minutes each day). I'd like to strength train only 2 times a week.
I was wondering instead of working 1 muscle group a day, 4 times a week, if I could work 2 muscle groups in 1 day. Like instead of working out my upper body on Monday, and lower body on Tuesday (2 separate days), can I just work out my upper AND lower body on Monday (one day). This way I can reduce the amount of days I work out to just 2 days a week.
My goal is to build more muscle, not get bulky and lose weight. I have over 30lbs to lose. I'm eating very low to moderate carb (less than 90 grams of carbs a day). I try to walk 2 miles 3 days a week, along with some Pilates and biking for fun.
