Real basic workout while cutting
Want some input on this idea for a workout I just got.
Its REAL simple
Squats 4 sets
Chins 4 sets
dips 4 sets
that 3 times a week, would that be a good shock for the body? I will run it for 4-6 weeks depending on how long I keep increasing in strenght.
I was thinking
Day 1 doing all the exercises for 4-6 reps
day 2 rest
day 3 doing them for 8-10 reps
day 4 rest
day 5 doing them for 10-12 reps
day 6 and 7 rest
I will do this while cutting. Kcal will be around 2300-2500 kcal, will do 30 minutes of cardio after each workout and I will run this cycle alongside
50mg winny day
5 iu slin post workout 2 times a week
Do you think that workout will overtrain or undertrain me?
I would add straight legged deadlifts to if it wasnt for a back injury I have.

or maby rows instead of chins to get some trap work.

i would say you would need to up the reps on the squats, your lower body can handle way more than your upper body, unless of course your going very heavy

well, other than that, i love that workout, i actually do something very similar every time i get bored with my routine, usually about once every few months

Nice, do you get good results with it??

i don't grow as much, but what it does, it kinda acts like a primer, heals up my shoulder and elbow and knee and hip joints so when i go back to a regular workout, i feel rejuvinated and usually get a growth spurt right away

Thats a very interesting split. I have not tried it, and i must admit I am a lil skeptical. The only thing that I might change is that I think 4 sets is a bit much for one exercise. I would possibly consider dropping the squat to 1- 20 rep set and changing the other exercises to 1 straight set.

Just a suggestion, I mean heck if you're not in a hurry, you could try both approaches, thats probably the best thing you can do. The most important thing about dieting is to try things so you can learn your body.

I've treid it before,, not a bad idea while cutting...i didnt ttry that exactly but osmething simalair. I didnt get any results, except fatloss. No muscle growth. But it gives your body a good break, so when you come back into lifting you r muscles get an immediate shock, and grow like scott said

Hoss thats what Im hoping! Tricking the body then after a while destroy it so it doesnt have any other choise then to grow as a mofo

i tell you, it works great for me, even to just give my joints a break, it even seems to help them heel faster

Actually I was thinking about this last night, after I posted my last post. I'm not sure how you have your diet plan set up, but if cardio is a big part of it than you might want to watch out.
Training your legs 3-4 times a week while dietng plus if you're doing lots of cardio, especially running, you'll have to be very careful or else you will overtrain your legs big time and lose lots of mass on them.
