Is this a new work out plan or have you been doing this for some time now?

I have been doing similar stuff in the past few months, going about 2 to 3 times a week. I have tried focusing on specific body parts per day in the past month, though. Tomorrow is Leg day.

I want to go into the gym more frequently, but my schedule is kind of chaotic lately and not sure I can go in more often than 3 times a week at the moment. I want to lose some weight/fat and get stronger (my actual personal records are much higher. The stats I posted are just stuff that was copied over from my fitocracy profile).

I will say I haven't seen a ton of progress in the past year, but that is my own fault for being so erratic with my habits. The most significant changes I've ever had were when I first began weight training in college (thank you, college fitness courses!) and then a year after graduating when I began to take running more seriously. Those days I lived in an apartment complex with a fitness center and was able to go run every day after work on the treadmill. I prefer it to outside, but once in a while I do a jog in my current neighborhood if I'm up for it. Running in streets makes me nervous, though, even if it is a fairly sleepy neighborhood :P

Yeah Ive found at home workouts help keep progress steady when only able to hit the gym a couple times per week. I do a lot of arms raised wall squats, planks, pushups, pullups, and crawls.

I feel odd about mixing bodyweight/boot camp style fitness with my regular weight training because I never feel like I know what I'm doing. I worry that I don't do enough when I workout at home, but I probably just need to do a little more research. Some is better than nothing, right?

I actually totally worked out a handful of times since my last post, so here is a few sessions at once....

Tuesday

Yoga (I think it's a bit of vinyasa and hatha. More intense than most hatha I have done, but not quite as intense as vinyasa XD It is a class they offer employees at my job, so can't recall if they specify)

Saturday morning

I went on a run! OUTSIDE!

Running
00:51:44 | 4.3 mi

I discovered a high school with a great track about a mile from my house. I definitely want to incorporate more long runs in my routine so I can get a half marathon by next year, and I am so glad I discovered this spot. It's perfect for training, and it only takes 4 laps to hit a mile. I ran to it this time, but I will probably drive and park so I can do the full work out there next time.
