Tues, Thurs, Fri I will try to do some sort of cardio maybe a few yoga classes to help with flexibility. Sunday is rest. Any suggestions?
I'd vary the reps and sets, rather than doing the same 4x10 day in and day out. Perhaps 3 sets of 15, something like that. No problem with using high rep work to condition your body a bit before lowering reps and upping weight.

What are you planning for cardio?
