Do you feel that you're starting to see if the shorter workouts are working for you?

Myself I feel that a more cardio based routine, shorter in duration that my previous workouts, makes for a more energetic day, and following day. I still routinely fall back into a more weight based routine, but do like the more cardio based.

The primary reason I try to keep my workouts under a half hour is so that I will do them. My mental game has been low for the past 6 months for health reasons (sore elbow, sore hip, hernia, flu, decreased strength) and I am not usually up for a 45-minute to one-hour routine. My cardio work is really not that much. Five minutes on both the rower and speed bag is very minimal in that regard.

I still have my lifting goals in place as to where I want to be by the time I am 70, and right now I am focused on my intermediate goals to hit by my next birthday. It's going to be a grind, but nothing ventured - nothing gained! I am certainly impressed with the weights and the lengthy workouts you, Flattop, and Belnik manage! 😳
