    My routine? it diffrent please comment

    Ok so let me tell you my goals before I start I do not want to get huge (yet), I want to be able to go to the gym 5 days a week. I need to jump start my metabolism at night because thats when I have the most trouble cheating on my cut. SO the routine is something i have been fooling around with and i have never heard of before

    mon- big 3, warm up sets then 3 sets of each for 10-12 reps

    tue- abs, bis

    wend- same as mon

    thur- cardi, calfs

    fri- same as mon

    weekend offs

    I know people say only do big three one time a week. But i am just getting a pump not going to failure. Im getting a sweat and its almost has hit quality's. I am not over stressing my self, if i was i could feel it and would stop.

    So what do you think? It seems to be working although i just started. I should also state I have a high protein low carb diet.

    IMO, this routine is a disaster. Your Monday workout seems pointless since you aren't going hard on any of the Big 3. If you were, you would most likely get injured during the workout. I don't get your Tuesday workout either. You are doing abs and then biceps? Thursday seems more worthless. You are doing cardio (which I assume is running), then you are doing calf routine. The calf routine is a waste of time if you are doing cardio. Doing the Big 3 three times a week at the way you are going about it, you will achieve your goals, and NOT get huge.

    Wow, yea... that routine sucks. Size is a function of diet, if you lift hard while in a caloric deficit you won't get bigger. That being said, focus on these:

    Bench/Row
    Pullups/OHPress
    Squat/DL.

    You can even put calves, bis, and tris on each day as well (that is one per day. Try spending 3 days lifting and 2 days cardio (HIIT).

    Im not disagreeing with both of you but my goal is not to get huge yet i need to loose all my weight. And still keep every body part moving so when I do start hitting it hard im not soar for a month. I look at it as a lil cycle before I do it the way i need to when I bulk

    Edit: and im only doing cardio one day because I absolutely hate it with a passion, and Cardio is actually a bike a real one lol

    I think its better to lift heavy while on a cut. I dont really like your routine. Tues/Thurs is pointless. You could structure it a little better.

    Maybe just take tues/thurs out all together alternate the reps you do each session. Monday and Friday could be 3x5 and Wed could be your 10-12. After the big three, you could add in a few supp lifts.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial

    She was one of the people that helped me get to where I am. So yes she has the answers for everything IMO.

    Also, if you are feeling guilty about not hitting the gym those 2 days, hit the refridgerator and eat.

    Read my diet link winginator - you can eat bread when you're cutting. Use it for your post-workout meal.

    Superman, thanks bud. I'm glad I could help.
