hey muscle and fitness or one of those many many muscle mags recently had an article with regard to full body workouts and how they are good when you are cutting.
also all of these workouts are on a circuit with a and b where that is the circuit
anyhow my version of the routine goes like this.
the split is: a day, rest, b day, rest, a day, rest, b day,...etc
1b barbell row
2a flat barbell bench
3a pullups (lat pulldown)
3b dumbbell push press
1a incline bench
3a hammer curl to press
3b bent over row
all of these sets are 7x4
and im doing it with 30 sec rest between a and b and 2 minutes between each circuit.
does this seem high intensity enough to you?
im pretty skeptical about this routine since its significantly less exercises than i usually do on my normal push/pull split.
im worried that the intensity isn't high enough and there aren't enough exercises in the routine.
since i don't seem to be losing any weight just gaining it lol. then again its not like im eating that well to begin with.
but i was in equilibrium at like 173 and now after two weeks of this ridiuclous workout i somehow managed to bulk to 183. and the last thing i wanna do is bulk more.
and my diet has not significantly changed either.

stats: asian / male / 6' 1" / 183 lbs (supposed to be cutting)
lifts: bench 185x5x4, dl 245x7x4, squat 195x7x4 (don't laugh)
I keep my intensity up by resting less, also i slow down each rep. It sounds like your diet is to blame as far as the weight gain goes. Im doing a full body work out right now and im also cutting. I wasnt losing as much weight as i wanted to so i cut my cals again. Also i would say the weight gain could be from your muscles getting much more rest because your doing less lifts than normal (just a thought).Originally Posted by PYROTAK
