    New to AM... Quick question


    Hey all. I'm back to training after a 2 year hiatus. (Injury related). Also my first time ever training at a big BF% (25%).

    My question is, if I'm in a deficiet, and doing moderate cardio, would full body work out (3 sets, 10 reps, 2 exercises per muscle group) 3x a week be better than the standard 3 day split concentrating on each group(s) on certain days (chest/tri Monday, back/bi wed, shoulders/legs on friday)

    On a side note, anyone have any experience with clen/albuterol? (Wrong board but this isn't the primary focus of my post and if it doesn't get answered that's cool. Just figured I'd throw it out there)

    I would personally carry on where you left off, unless you were kind of a new lifter to begin with. If that's the case then i always recommend 5x5 training, it helped me out hugely to begin with.

    Also depends on your injury, 5x5 is normally used with heavier weight and you dont want to stress the problem you had.
    Hope this helps

    Agree with the above recs^^ 5x5 will get you back on track with a solid foundation of strength...previous injury caution taken of course.

    It was a knee injury but it's healed well I'm I'm Damn near 100% with it. 5x5 looks good. I had heard of it but before I always trained on a 3 day split. Looking to diversify now!
