    So a broseph of mine recommended that since I go to the gym 6 times a week, that I do this type of circuit for my workout days:

    Day 1: Chest/Tris/Abs- Heavy
    Day 2: Back/Biceps/Shoulders -light
    Day 3: Legs - heavy

    Break

    Day 4: Chest/Tris/Abs -Light
    Day 5: Back/Biceps/Shoulders -Heavy
    Day 6: Legs- Light

    What do you guys think?

    oh and sorry to be :hsugh::greddy: but, another broseph recommended that for breakfast or lunch I eat a Chicken bake from costco. I looked up the nutrition facts online:
    http://caloriecount.about.com/calories-costco-chicken-bake-i113815
    it has 30 fat
    has 75 carbs
    and 60 protein

    Good idea or bad idea? please help!

    Cliffs: alternate between heavy and light workouts? chickenbake good/bad?

    oh, and here's what I've been doing for now as a workout:

    How tall are you? You probably, I'm guessing should be eating around 2500 calories a day give or take.

    I would recommend not lifting 6 days a week then. Switch to

    Day1: Chest/Tri (throw in Abs if you want too)
    Day2: Legs/Biceps
    Day3: Rest/Cardio
    Day4: Shoulder/Abs
    Day5: Biceps/Back
    Day6: Rest/Cardio
    Day7: Rest/Cardio

    Your alternating heavy/light works good, just change it between weeks and pump up the reps. How often/what exercises do you do when you lift? You might want to throw in more exercise that work the same muscle if you try this routine so that you completely tear up that muscle group that 1 day.

    Keep your carb intake around 125-175 on days you work out, and between 50-100 on rest/cardio days. Breakfast should always be a good source of whole grain complex carbs (the bulk of your carbs will be at BF, prolly 30-50g). The rest you should distribute through out the day, with about 40g post lifting work out.

    As for food, sliced turkey is a great source of extremely low fat, low calorie protein. I usually buy the Oscar Meyer 1.5lb packs. Ground turkey is pretty good too. Extra lean ground beef is good, expensive though. Of course chicken is good. You're pretty much gonna be cooking for yourself and taking it with you. I usually spend an hour or so a night cooking for the next day. That chicken bake shit... fuck that if you're trying to lose weight/cut yourself up. High in carbs, high in fat, CRAZY high in sodium.

    I would suggest starting a meal log, especially if you eat more than 3 times a day (I eat about 8 times a day, 9 if I lift because I'm getting up at 4am). I've also dropped about 10% body fat in the past 5-6 months but remained the same weight.

    Some good advice, man.:cool:
    Though personally I like the threadstarter's training program as it is.
