In need of advice regarding PE routine / taking a break
Hey guys, I need advice on what to do with my PE routine in next 3 months.
The things is, next 3 months are going to be extremely busy for me. We’re talking about last semester before getting my bachelor’s degree along with taking care of some classes from previous semesters that I haven’t passed yet. In other words, that’s 3-6 hours of classes a day, sometimes more, and 2-3 hours of studying at home. I’m also starting the cutting phase which means 3 hours of fast walking a day, 7 days a week, along with training at the gym 4 days a week. I also see my girlfriend 3-4 times a week, I eat 5-6 times a day and I want to get 8 hours of sleep every night, otherwise I won’t function properly. All in all, next 3 months are going to be extremely busy and tough and I want to spend every minute of free time doing something I enjoy, not something tedious, boring and demanding because I will be depleted physically and psychically enough as it is. If I want free summer to do whatever I want and preferably get a summer job instead of taking exams and finishing college stuff, this is the way it has to be.
With that out of the way, my question is… What should I do with my PE routine? Up until the beginning of this month, my routine was 50-55 minutes of manual stretching and some dry jelqing or pumping depending on my mood. Then I became less consistent with my workouts because I had to study for exams. I mean, I still did PE, but instead of 50-55 minutes I’d just do 20-25 and call it day.
So what should I do? Spend next 3 months doing some kind of light 20 minute maintenance routine and go for new gains somewhere in June or take a 3 month break completely, hope for gains to remain and hope for some new easy gains once I start again? Just to make it clear, I will start again with the same amount of dedication I had so far. I just don’t want the next 3 months to be erratic like August 2010 which was completely random and undecided. This time it’s either do it or don’t, nothing in between.
