    I need your guys help on some type of maintenance workout routine. Next week will be my last week of HIT and then I go to San Diego for a week. From May 7th through the end of the month I'll still be dieting, but I'm gonna need a maintenance workout routine for those 3 weeks.

    I'm not expecting you guys to do the work for me, but steer me in the right direction. I'm assuming I should go with more a volume type of workout since I'm just about to finish a high intensity program?

    If so what type of program would be best? How many different exercises per bodypart? How many sets and reps? Rest period in between sets? How many days per week? More compound or isolation movements? Failure on every set or just short of?

    Sorry for the 20 questions, but I've never done a maintenance routine before.

    Thanks

    I've kept my workouts exactly the same as far as lifting goes. I have a 4 day split. 4-6 reps one week and 8-10 the next. Except legs 12-15 reps or 15-20.

    All I did was drop one of my cardio sessions and drop a bit of time from the other 2 cardio sessions.

    Okay...How many exercises to you do per bodypart usually? When I first started lifting again, I was doing full body workouts 3 days per week, then I switched to HIT. Now that I'm doing with those two, I really don't know what to do from here.

    Thanks for the input so far. Once I have an idea on how many exerices to do for each bodypart I can put together a routine and have you guys critique it.

    Oh and.....where you at SGT?????

    4 exercises for back including deads. I only do 2 exercises each for quads and hams and 1for calves. Chest gets 2 on my heavy week and 3 on my light week. Delts get 3 exercises and bi's and tri's 2 each.

    3-5 sets per exercise normally. 12-15 sets per workout.

    That's not alot of exercises but I'm spent at the end of every workout.
