@1776 - When you do three exercises like this, do you do all sets of exercise one, then move on to exercise two, do all sets, then on to three? Or do you do more of a "circuit" type routine?

I'm running miles as usual, which does not lend itself to "bulk" muscle. I'm a slim muscular guy, but I have lost some mass since I started running so much. (and time ain't on my side) I want to maintain my muscle with the limited time to work out I have.

Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. (I don't want to end up looking like those androgynous freaks you see at marathons so often)
I usually do something of a circuit.
Today, I added on the felt raise as an afterthought, so that was done all in one go.
~today=
4-5 sets of 5 reps, building up
Done on machine fly then ez bar curl

Drop 'sets' of 5 then 10 then 20
(It's OK if a drop requires multiple sets, just hit the reps)
Machine fly the ez bat

Drop set of 40 reps
Machine fly then ez bar

Drop sets of 80
Machine fly then ez bar.

For the delt raises, I followed the same
Build then 5,10,20,40,80, just straight through


This is excessive for what you want.
I'd say find a good ~5rm and ~12-15rm for the exercises you do and do 4-6 sets alternating on the exercises you want.
Hit the cable Machines with a fairly even spread of exercises.
I like to do cross group exercises. ie, instead of chest and triceps, which commonly work together, I'll do chest and biceps or back and triceps.

And don't forget nutrition.
1 gram of protein per pound of lean body mass is considered a standard. You may not need that much, but a little extra isn't going to hurt anything.
I do that - it's very hard to maintain weight/muscle when training for some of these long runs. As soon as I finish an med-long run, I'm downing a Core Protein milk from the nearest QT. I eat tons of meat, so that helps. I've sworn off anything longer than 15 miles...it's just a killer if you want to keep the physique of a male.

Lardasses that claim they can't lose weight are lying to themselves. CICO is pretty simple math, lol.

I'm a fan of isopure protein. They aren't as heavy as a lot of the premade protein drinks out there, and they actually taste decent.


The bodyspace app is pretty good for tracking lifting. It has a huge database of exercises and lets you filter by equipment, muscle group, and, to some extent, goals.

Did a little hike at skidaway earlier today, then decided to walk downtown for a late lunch.

Ran the Pecos Run N Gun two weeks ago. Been running 3x a week since I got back. Been training with weights at lunch since last Monday. Had bicep/tendon problems in one arm then the other for almost a year, so easing into it.
