Not changing things up really, I just want to set a more(or less) solid schedule for myself.

Here's what I'm thinking:
Sunday-weights (deadlift/squat/overhead press/pullup)
Monday-technique/bagwork/forms (low-med intensity)
Tuesday-cardio (bagwork, HIIT, not sure yet)
Wednesday-weights
Thursday-technique
Friday-cardio
Saturday-rest

Optional to take off one cardio session per week depending on how I feel. Trying to put in stretching/yoga most days to work on flexibility as well.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong here. What say you?

You're doing deadlift and squat on the same day? Good luck with that

Not impossible Joel but you may burn out with that or may not get a quality enough workout on the next lift. What you may wish to do is alternate one day with Deadlifts and have the other day with Squats ... that way your workouts are slightly different each time. Also I've found that doing too much every day starts to eat at you even if it is only for an hour or so. What I'd suggest, and you make the call, but try to make sure you have "2 full days" to yourself without having to do anything. Your body as you get older will thank you and you will enjoy the time off.

I can alternate the squats and deads during the week if that will be better.
Should I do two completely different routines, or just alternate the one leg lift? Also, should I add something else in since I'm taking out one lift each day?

I thought about having only 1 rest day as well. I think I'm going to try it that way for a while, but not be completely strict about it. If I need a day off, I'll take it. If I start taking a lot of days off I'll just cut back to 5 days per week. I think if I eat right and get enough sleep I'll be fine with 6 days.

Speaking of sleep....

Another possibility, two completely different weight routines once a week?

They could work the same muscles, but different lifts. Or split the muscle groups?

That is certainly an idea and I've used it before. Less likely for your muscles to adapt and by doing something different the other day you won't get bored as fast.

Any ideas to help me out? I'm a big n00b when it comes to lifting.

It depends what you are looking for Joel and how much time you want to put into it. Are you seeing results with this workout? If you are don't really change too much right now. If your body can handle the Deadlifts and the Squats and you feel good with it then go with the flow. Try it and then compare it to just doing the Squat or the Deadlift. If you notice a difference then make the necessary change but you make the call on facts. And if you want to alternate the Deadlifts one day and the Squats the other then this is a viable solution. Keep things simple and just change out this exercise and hold on to the rest. Later when you are not making any progress then think about changing things then. Basically keep it simple, work till no progress and then change things up. Hope that helps and if not throw up your questions and lets re-review and get things sorted out.

Well I've only been back at it for 2 weeks since my break due to moving. I guess I'll give it some more time. I'm basically at where I left off before then. I'll probably try just squats and just deadlifts on different days next week and see how it goes. I've been feeling pretty good with doing them together up until now.

I've also been trying to think of a different cardio/HIIT routine, but I'm going to go back to what I was doing beforehand. I'm a little gunshy because of what happened to my foot (plus it's just a dang hard workout!!), but I'll either wear shoes or just suck it up.

Thanks, Dereck.

Or....I've been thinking. What about sqitching the jump-rope portion of my HIIT for sprints? I've got a yard now, also a sidewalk along the road.

Anybody?
