    Need help designing workout for ultimate caloric burn

    I know to already include compound lifts and squats and deadlifts into the routine, but for cutting, I'll admit that's really the limitation of my knowledge when it comes to lifting to burn fat. That's why I'm coming to you for help.

    I basically have a clean slate where I want to workout any amount of days M-F for around a 45 minute period.

    Do I do circuit training? What about supersets? How many reps, how many sets? How do I go about setting up the order (i.e. what muscle parts in what days)? What kind of break do I have between lifts?

    As I get more information, I'll start putting up a routine and you can critique it. I'm looking at WBB1 and it doesn't seem like I'll burn many calories by it. WBB2 is closer but I don't know. WBB3 Also is closer but not sure.

    Thanks in advance and I hope to get a real nice routine off of this.

    Check out Built's article for cutting. No need to change your routine (assuming it's good to start with). Just make sure you keep reps on the low side, lift heavy and monitor your diet.

    Link? I can't seem to find it. I see her Baby Got Back, and her Q&A articles as well as the cardio. Which one of those should I be looking at?

    I like to run sprints. HIIT will target fat loss.
