I love the fat burning power and metabolic boost from full-body workouts, as they are high intensity and feel great. However, I've recently been told that it's bad to have one inside a normal split. I know there are tons of posts and threads about this, but I'd feel better getting it specifically answered with my own case. would it still help to build muscle and burn some fat from activating my entire body with a full body workout, or is it somewhat of a waste if i'm already on a split that covers everything?
Split: Chest/abs, back/bi's, legs/abs, shoulders/tri's, off, full-body (circuit training), off
- my goals are to gain lean muscle mass. i'm not trying to completely cut, just to gain muscle and burn some fat here and there. I carb-cycle, with high carb days on the full-body day, chest day, and leg day. my off days are very low carb days, and the remaining days are moderate carb intake
