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
If not, Ill just do cardio. Thanks

Dontate to my favorite charity!
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.
