Im on a cut right now and im doing great im loosing about 2 pounds per week and im taking the supplement Thermorexin/ephedra stack. My routeine has been a 2 day a day type workout and i was wondering if anyone has done this.
Mon- 30 min cardio in the morning then i do chest,tris, and back at night
Tues-30 min cardio in the morning then i do shoulders, bi's, and forearms at night
Weds- 30 min cardio in the moring
Thurs 30 min cardio in the morning then monday routine at night
Fri- 30 min cardio in the moring then tues routine at night
I kno that im probably burning some muscule but i just want to make sure im not somehow hindering fatloss by doing this 2aday type workout.
I think its alright.

Another thing thats making me mad is that i seem to be loosing weight but when i do a bodt fat test using one of those hand held body fat analyzers i dont see it decreseing to much.. does anyone know how many pounds usually equals 1% body fat?
I couldnt answer that.

For the record, bodyfat calipers tend to not be very consistent. If you're going to use them, keep track of the mm reading, but don't bother calculating bf%. The calculation tends to be inaccurate.
If youíre solely doing cardio for weight loss reasons, you might want to consider HIIT, which is believed to reduce fat better then steady state cardio. In addition to the article above, you can find more about it here... http://www.musclemedia.com/training/hiit.asp
Lastly, those handheld body fat testers are extremely inaccurate. In fact, if you try the test twice in a row, often times you can see a huge difference in results. Take what the result is with a grain of salt, just aim to lose around 2lbs a week and continue lifting, and you should find that in a few weeks that a good amount of your weight loss was fat. Just stick with it and you'll be amazed one day when you can see the difference
Do the cardio during the same session you are lifting. Studies have shown that you will maintain your strength this way, but if you lift and doing cardio at seperate times it will reduce your strength.
I would concentrate more on your diet than doing cardio.
