I’ll go straight to the point. I’m training three times a week mon/wed/frid. . I squat every workout, shoulder press 2/week and bench press once. Recently I decided I want a bit more definition to my body ( not as on ’ bodybuilding’ level , but just a bit ) in addition, increase my endurance, explosiveness, speed because I started to feel kind of ‘rusty’ , you know, like an old man. Though in terms of strength, everything is fine.
So I looked up a few programs and basically it’s a toss between short interval sprinting, rope jumping etc… and complexes, you know, when you take a few exercises like squat, push press, rows etc… and do one after another with light weights, then rest for a minute or more and repeat. My question is, which type of workout ( traditional cardio, no weights, just sprinting, jumping, abs, pull ups etc ) or complexes ( exercises with weights) would help me better to lose some fat WITHOUT losing any muscle, basically stay at the same weight but defined.
And if it’s the second choice, how will that interfere with my primary sport, which is powerlifting. Has anyone tried to combine cardio and powerlifting and how did it workout? Thanks in advance guys…
