    I'm considering starting doing two-a-days at the gym...but I'm not really sure what an appropriate split would be, or if this is even a good idea.

    Anyone done it, or do it?

    Maybe lifting first, and then cardio later? Or abs later?

    I tried it once...and found it was a good way to burn myself out. I'll be sticking to my regular routine. icon_biggrin.gif

    Doctor prescribed, or evaluated?

    When I had my home gym setup, that's the only way I worked out.

    Creating a split that works for you is the biggest challenge. Try a few things till you find something that fits your needs.

    not sure what ur goals r. in sports training, 2-a-days r pretty much the norm...well, more like 3-a-days. have 2 put in the cardio wk (sprints, distance/endurance), strength wk (weights), and the skills wk (practice).

    It depends on what your goals are. Just keep in mind that excessive cardio can negatively impact muscle mass. Excessive weight work can lead to less recovery and injury. So, the right balance is still necessary. When I did them, I did cardio in the morning, then weights in the evening.

    Do people really dedicate an entire workout to abs? Every trainer I've ever spoken to says it's best to work abs as part of the rest of a total body workout, and that ab-specific exercises are mostly a waste of time and a gimmick to sell useless stuff on TV.

    Maybe try adding two a days twice a week at first and see how your body handles it. It IS an easy way to burn out or cause injury so be careful!
