Day 1: Squats, Weighted Pullups, BB Military Press, BB Bench
Day 2: Abs + either 15 mins HIIT or 30 mins moderate cardio
Day 3: Deadlifts, DB Shoulder Press, Seated Rows, BB Bicep Curls, Weighted Dips
Day 4: Abs + either 15 mins HIIT or 30 mins moderate cardio
Day 5: Leg Press, Inclined BB Press, Weighted Pullups, BB Upright Rows
Day 6: Complete Rest (as much as I can get with 3 small children at home!)
Day 7: Light recovery (maybe a very slow jog/walk for 30 minutes, or perhaps some yoga/stretching)

Would love to hear your feedback. Thanks.
Cycle seems fine. But what were you doing previously? Is this a big change? If so, take that into consideration. Maybe you don't have to do 2 cardio/HIIT sessions just yet.
