Q: Hi James, I hope all is well with you. I was wondering what you thought of doing one exercise a day. For example, Monday would be just a squat day Tuesday bench Wednesday etc. I really only have 20 minutes a day to work out and I like the idea of focusing solely on one exercise. Thanks.
My Answer: Perfectly fine to do that, so long as you have enough volume for each exercise. So if you’re going to focus on squats on one day, then you should cram 8-10 sets in that 20 minute window.
You should also think about supersetting some exercises to cover your entire musculature. Here’s a useful split:
Tuesday- Bench press
- Pull-ups alternated with
- Military press
