Been lurking for several months, thought I’d register and start posting. I’m a 27 year old male, 5’ 10", 170 lbs, body-fat approx. 15%. I’ve been a gymn member since 1996, but never went consistently or paid attention to nutrition until about a year go (yeah, I’m a little slow… :-). My goal is to reach 190 lbs at 12% body-fat, for starters.
I eat 2700 cal per day, with a 20/30/50 fat/carb/prot split. Supplements include Surge, whey protein, and creatine. Also using up some Ripped Fuel, taken about 1.5 hours before lifting.
Anyway, I have a question concerning leg training. I currently do the following routine:
Tue - Chest
Thu - Arms
Sat - Back
Sun - Shoulders
I train in Tae Kwon Do Mon, Wed, and Fri. My instructor, who also works as a personal trainer for some of our students - and looks it, too! - advised me not to do leg work at all, since our legs take a beating three times per week.
Do any of you agree or disagree? If I should add a leg routine, should I work heavy or light?
