    change of routine


    Still fairly new to seriously working outand need some advice. I was doing m-w-f-general upperbody and 30 min cardio, and t-t-s hour cardio and do legs once in a while Realizing this is no good I am switching to a push-pull-leg split. I want to know if
    m-push
    t-pull
    w-leg
    t-push
    f-pull
    and most saturdays leg (real busy work days)

    and 30 minute cardio daily sounds solid or
    m-push
    w-pull
    f-leg
    and cardio 30 min those days, and hour on off days

    Which would u suggest to build lean mass and lose weight (just generally get healthy) and why

    ps...are flys considered a push or pull...i did them today with push

    ps no.2 i did 3 sets of 8 to 12 depending on excercise...would it be better for my goals to do less weight and 12 reps or lil heavier and do 8-10and do the 3 sets sound right

    thanks in advance

    OK...2 days into this i think 6lift daysis gonnabe too much..Thinking of going push-pull-legs-off then repeat...First 2 days have been pretty intense..maybe its more reps and less down time idk...i have been spent when done and couldnt even finish cardio so i was thinking doing 20-30 min cardio as a warm-up then lift and off days maybe hit cardio for hour...anyone agree or disagree

    well if you really are getting stronger while cutting, thats pretty rare. at least from my experiences. how many days a week would u like to workout. 6 days, at least for most, is a bit too much. most ppl do 3 to 5. i personally do 4. how long have u been on the push pull routine for?
