Good stuff, ill have to take a look at those when i get a chance, thanks philo and IS
As for your question PV, yes you can use HIT while trying to lose weight. You won't be as strong and if your too calorically deficient the risk of injury is greater. However, with increased recovery time from maximal stimulation but minimal time and sets in the gym you make up for it.
But honestly your shouldn't try to go for strength or mass building routines when your trying to lose weight. Any of them can be performed but you will not be taking in enough calories for any to be efficient or successful enough. You need to pick what you want to do first, lose weight or gain muscle/strength. Then eat accordingly. I like clean bulks, I gain size and strength without putting on unwanted fat.
The anabolic diet worked great for me while attempting to lean out while make gains. You can try that if you would like
New routine style 5x5 program
- one bicep exercise
-Shrugs-or something else dont know yet....
- one tricep exercise
Day 3 and 4 is more other excerises to hit the muscles differently ( 3 sets of 8 for everything)
- Front squat
- Incline bench
- One bicep exercise
- Dumbell press
- Upright rows
- Leg curls
- One tricep exercise
Day 1 and 2....one day off.....day 3 and 4....then 2 days off....
i would switch around so u do one heavy day first, followed by a lighter day, then a rest day, and then heavy again and then hypertrophy day.
also heavy deads following a day of heavy squats is not something i would reccomend if u like ur lower back. the lower back needs more time to recover than other muscle groups, so spread em 2-3 days apart imo.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
