Whats the best split for a cut?

  1. Whats the best split for a cut?


    Ive been following cdk for awhile, but ive been going 6 days a week splitting up my muscles in 5 days and using the 6th day for my depletion.

    so it would be something like:
    legs
    chest
    arms
    back
    shoulders
    depletion
    rest

    is this split ideal for cutting, and fat loss? My diet is pretty solid as well.

    has it been going good for you?

    i do cardio whenever my legs dont feel like complete ass after leg days.
    so usually on arm, chest, shoulder and depletion days.


    damn we have similar stats too.

  4. Well I'm 7 weeks in as of today, and I'm 25 down. Lately it seems that the weight has slowed in dropping off.

  6. Rephrase that. I am focusing on loosing fat as well, while maintaining of course. It's ok that the weight stopped, no hopefully it will all be displacement.

    I'm kinda nervous about getting too dirty, I have heard you can eat what you want, but..... I usually do lots of fruit, oatmeal, whole wheat pancakes, and whole wheat pasta. And my diet is modified... I carb up for 48 hours

    ahh my carb up is a little over 24. I went dirty cuz I had gone clean for such a long time. I needed to indulge on something. It was nice, and usually after I cheat somewhere it gives me more motivation to be much stricter with my diet and exercise since I cheated.

    My usual carb up consists of whole wheat bread, spaghetti with whole wheat pasta, and lots and lots of brown rice.

    If it's currently working for you mate then I wouldn't change it up (i.e. you're losing fat).

    I tend to do more volume training when cutting (e.g. GVT, OVT) adding in extra fasted cardio and HIIT sessions where needed to burn extra calories.

    It works for me, others might overtrain on such a regime but I only seem to respond to it well, might be something to try.

  12. Ultimate diet 2.0

  13. Cutting is done through a calorie deficient diet. No routine cuts you, the loss of glycogen that requires your body to burn fat as a source of energy does.

    The best advice for your routine structure while cutting is to slightly increase the reps (to burn more calories).

  14. most important thing while cutting is diet. as for training im a huge fan of push/pull routines, for example.

    Day1:Heavy pull:3-5rep range
    Day2:Light Push:6-12rep range
    Day3: off/ maybe some cardio
    Day4:Light Pull:6-12rep range
    Day5:Heavy Push:3-5rep range
    Day6: off/maybe some cardio
    Day7:repeat

    given that your diet is in check this routine will allow you to preserve strength and keep muscle while you cut.

    I actually really really REALLY like the set up and idea behind this routine.

    It slightly reminds me of the push/pull that was uniquely modified by the original author Frankie NY, dealing with the workout a, workout b philosophy. It was called push then pull and legs in which would require utilization of the squat and deadlift in the same session.

    This is pretty cool and I'm going to take note of this.
