Yeah, occasionnally you can double up, but as Kristin poiints out, it gets much more difficult to do later due to the intensity and just the time it takes to do a single workout later.
I'm finding I just need to stretch the program out this time as I have had more interuptions to my 6 days of workouts this time. And its tricky with how the workouts are spaced apart to avoid working the same muscle groups without rest.
I hope you figure out an alternative schedule that works for you!

I would occasionally double up. When I did it was usually working shoulders with legs. I didn't do it too often though. Leg routines were long and exhausting for me. You want to really be careful doubling up on upper body routines. Problem being that you are needing some of the strength of the other muscles and you have already fatigued them in the first pairing. Found that when I did it I would not be able to lift as heavy and had to really watch my form on the second routine. I don't double upper body now. There is also something to the way the routines are designed and the order the muscles are worked.

If you choose to do it make sure you are resting properly. Another thing is it becomes difficult to do later in the plan. The workouts are longer. Especially doing the circuits and plyo. I couldn't double up later. Got to the point where I would simply take a rest day over doubling.

People (not on LiveFit) who ST upper in one day are not always doing as many moves as you do for each body part in LF. I am still trying to figure a way to get more stuff into less days. LOL I don't want to be working out for hours on end.

I did that when I had to play catch-up. It's doable but for me, I was worn out combining them on a regular basis. Be prepared to eat enough to fuel your body for such workouts. Good luck!

ok question... do any of you guys combine some of these workouts? Like for example instead of doing weights 5 days a week combine legs & shoulders? It's going to be next to impossible for me to get to the gym 6 days a week. Cardio I can always do at home, but weights I have to actually go to the gym.. does anyone else do this or see why it would matter as long as it's two sep body parts and I'm still doing the complete workout just condensed? emoticon
