    Lighter weight workout instead of cardio?

    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.
