Need a full cutting 4 or 5 day lifting program?

  1. Need a full cutting 4 or 5 day lifting program?


    I have gotten down the diet and supplementation pretty well but I am not sure what I should do as far as workout and reps. What is a good 4 or 5 day workout for cutting?

    Lift heavy, I do anywhere from 6-12 reps.

  3. Focus on complex exercises:

    Squat, Deadlifts, chins, and bench. Avoid accessory lifts

    Low rep, high weight. look into RPT style, top set 4-5 reps

    3 days a week max, as a great man once said, "a calorie deficit is a recovery deficit, avoid deficit spending."

    Unless you love cardio (well, even if you do), avoid it with the exception of low impact walking. Let diet handle the weight loss and strength training handle lean mass/retention.

    Of course, you didn't provide your current stats, body weight, LBM estimates, current lifting experience, etc. as that may have some impact on suggestions
