    3day split to 4day split for fat loss?


    Please critic. Currently on a 3day split, thinking about going to a 4day split, as I find it difficult to hit shoulders and legs in the same day.
    My overall goal is to lose 10lbs of bf by May 30.

    All exercises are standardized to 4 sets. 3 of which are declining pyramid, then 4th set is back to 12-15 rep range.

    legs, Shoulders, Chest and Back are all 3 exercises.
    Biceps and triceps are 1 exercise.

    Im currently in the gym 3-6 days per week.

    Monday: Legs and shoulders followed by 15-20 minutes cardio
    Tuesday: HIIT 20-30 minutes
    Wednesday: Back and Biceps followed by 15-20 minutes cardio
    Thursday: HIIT 20-30 minutes
    Friday: Chest and Triceps followed by 15-20 minutes cardio
    Saturday: HIIT 20-30 minutes
    I say 3 - 6 times per week as I dont always go on the HIIT days.

    Im thinking about:

    Day 1: Chest, Triceps, cardio
    Day 2: Back, Biceps, Cardio
    Day 3: HIIT (or rest)
    Day 4: Shoulders, Triceps, Cardio
    Day 5: Legs, Biceps, Cardio
    Day 6: HIIT (or rest)
    Day 7: Rest

    I guess my question is, will lifting weights 4 days per week as opposed to 3 days per week improve my weight loss by any amount?

    Depends on diet
