Flow charts are interesting things. I hated them in school. I hated them at work. I doubt I will like them now. Report

Interesting way to help with planning. Report
I can do this myself. The only information needed was how much time should be devoted to each grouping in a week. Report

Nice! Report
Good chart Report
I love flowcharts. This is amazing. Report
Thought this would help answer the very first question as that would be more valuable to me. The stuff beyond that seems a little obvious, not really targeted at achieving the balance or recognising crossover activities that fit in more than one category (e.g. rowing, yoga). Good it helps others though Report

Great flow chart.
It may be helpful to create a weekly exercise plan as well,
or a semi-flexible schedule,
depending on how busy each work/weekend day it is. Report
Thank you Report
