Can a light weight workout be used in place of cardio for calorie burning purposes? I have a 3 day split, and would set it up so that there is as must rest as possible for the body parts, for example:

1- Chest/Back, Light
2- Legs, Heavy
3- Shoulders/Arms, Light
4- Chest/Back, Heavy
5- Legs, Light
6- Shoulders/Arms, Heavy
7- Rest

If not, Ill just do cardio. Thanks :)

It might be used in place of cardio. You could probably try cutting down the rest time inbetween sets on the light days but I would also reduce the volume a little bit on the heavy days. This will help to prevent overtraining. My 2 anyway. :)
