    My routine...good or bad?

    Hey guys!!!...
    Im still trying to get my routine right...what you think about this...

    Sun, Mon, Tue - Cardio training( High Intensity)
    Wed - Chest/back - Followed by 20min HIIT
    Thursday - Tri's/bi's/shoulders Followed by HIIT
    Friday - Legs followed by short HIIT
    Sat - nothing


    I was thinking perhaps doing every second day lifting and cardio...but i thought this one didnt sound to bad, personally...what use think?

    How you gonna work your chest? But wait you have triceps the next day...
    What about your back...uh-oh you got biceps the next day.

    Needs alot of work man.
    too much volume too close together and too much HIIT

    Knowing your history, I think you should keep it simple. Follow one of these full body routines. On the off days Tu,Thu,Sat, do HIIT followed by 30 minutes of SS cardio. You dont need the high intense cardio. Take Sunday off.

    Workout A = Deadlift, OH press, Chinup

    Workout B = Squat, Bench press, Row

    Mon: A
    Wed: B
    Fri: A
    Mon: B
    Wed: A
    Fri: B

    When doing the A or B exercises twice in one week, you can vary the reps. One day go 3-5 reps, the other time got 6-10 reps.

    OR

    You can go with Paul Staggs routine:
    Squat
    SLDL
    Row
    Bench
    Chins
    OH Press

    Do this 3x a week varying the repetition range on one of the days. So if one week you do 2 days of 3-5 rep range and 1 day of 6-10 rep range,the following week do 2 days of 6-10 and 1 day of 3-5 and so on and so forth. At the end of each day you can spend 15 minutes working on isolation exercises such as abs,biceps,triceps,pulldowns,leg curls, etc.

    As far as diet goes: your cals are wayyyyyy toooooooo low. You need to get in about another 25g of fat.

    Here is what I would suggest: 200g protein, 75g of fat, 180g of carbs for a total of 2191 cals. Eat that amount and if you arent losing then drop another 100 cals (from carbs)

    At your current intake you risk losing fat AND muscle. At 75kg you would be a skinny fat.

    I meant if you continue to drop your cals that low, you would risk losing muscle mass as well.


    try either one of those full body routines and see how it goes.
