    At first, Find a weight that will comfortably get you to the target reps, then increase over time.

    Plus family and kids to look after, distance education for my daughter (no high schools here) add 8 hrs sleep, time to eat and shower plus other commitments leaves no spare time.
    10 hours work
    8 hours sleep

    Even if you had an hour or two travel that leaves plenty of time. Better time management is probably the answer.

    Hey Big Man, I hope you and your family are well.

    This is the time to bring out that training methodology I call The Power of Less. It's a time to take advantage of what I also call SR, that stands for Summit Reps. Basically, once you've reached the mountain top (the summit), you want to stay there for an extended period of time in order to fully take in and be elated by the incredible view you're able to see from such a magnificent height.

    I won't bore you with intricate details here, suffice to say the following: look at what you've been doing before, and begin the SR by doing less for more. I'll give you an example to illustrate my point.

    Say you've been doing biceps curls for 5 sets of 10 reps, resting 60 to 120 seconds between sets. If I was to break those reps down into effective and activation reps, I would end up with about 30% effective and 70% activation. Your aim now (performing the SR method) would be to curtail / minimise on the activation and throw all your focus onto the effective reps instead. After all, once you're standing on the Summit, you would not want to climb back down the mountain, only to climb back up again. Once there, stay there.

    So this: 5x10, becomes this: 10, 4, 3, 3, 2. With a rest of 15 seconds (instead of 60 to 120 seconds) between sets, you've not only saved yourself a tremendous amount of time, but you've also kept the essence of each and every set, whilst discarding the rest (those activation reps leading you to your effective SR).

    So now grab yourself a piece of paper and begin to write down all that you were doing, and the time it took you to complete those exercises. For the SR, I'd only pick one exercise per body part and do that before moving on to the next exercise. I'll leave it here for now and welcome any question/s you may have for me. All the best Mick.

    Haha if life were that simple.

    I still have to prepare meals, eat, look after 2 dogs, a horse, two kids, daughters distance education schooling, clean, mow lawns, maintain a household, go shopping, after school sports, homework with kids, fuck the missus, build fences, finish building my car to get registered so that I have a car to drive once I move from here in a few months and lose my company car, get new new house ready and landscaped before we move in, get my home gym build, and thats just off the top of my head....

    At first you may think you want to do an extra set or sets of each, the trick is to work to fatigue and move quickly between exercises.

    the trick is to progress each exercise and to slowly increase your intensity of work, I think to start you need to find weight that will comfortably get you to the target rep's, and biuld over time.

    two days is a good amount of time to recover, but initially you could do this every day up until your work gets harder or your progress slows.
    I really like this, and I will definitely be giving this or something very similar a run soon.

    Started with just one exercise yesterday:

    I did five sets of BB Squats, 20, 20, 12, 10, and 6 reps with escalating weights, legs are fried.

    Did similar with BB Bench Press today, I might hit up Dead Lifts and DB Curls tomorrow and do some ab work as I will have more time starting work at 3pm.

    Now going out for a 30 minute bike ride with the dogs while my Devil Wings are cooking in the Weber Kettle, cooked with real Charcoal and Hickory wood chips soaked in water overnight for maximum smoke.
