I started my cutting routine a couple weeks ago, which consists of working a body part every other day for about 40 minutes and then 20 minutes on the stairs. I've been wondering though if I could take the basic foundation of the "Squats and Milk" routine and use that instead of the 20 minutes of stairs and burn more calories overall? For example, I would basically do 40 minutes of chest, then 20 minutes of moderate weight squats instead of getting on the stair machine. Obviously, I won't be squatting 200+ lbs every other day, more like 135/145 for sets of 8, as many I can do in 20 minutes. Then on my actual leg day, I will go heavy on squats and maybe get on a rowing machine for 20 minutes and then take two days off before I start my cycle over. The squats will put more stress on my body than the stairs, which leads me to believe that I will burn more doing them, however, my heart rate on the stairs would be significantly higher(consistently) than doing squats. I understand the benefits of heart health with the cardio, but at the current time, I more concerned with a hard cut. The only thing I'm not sure about is recovery, which for whatever reason, is not really mentioned when you read up on the Squats and Milk routine. Thoughts?
