Hi. I was wondering if it is not a good idea to incorporate multiple kinds of training into a plan in order to try to do what we all want to do - gain muscle while not gaining fat. I know for me the only thing that worked to lean out was doing a super high frequency program with workouts that got my HR sky high - I used 0-20 sec. top between sets and this lasted 45 min or more 6-8 times a week. Now I want to gain mass and I had some success gaining strength with a lower volume high sets, low reps program 4 days a week (4 on, 3 off schedule) BUT I gained fat too.
Is it possible to mix the 2 - say 2 days either EDT or low rest periods and then 2 heavy days, or will this just confuse my body and will I reach no goal fast?
And if I did mix - should I eat under maintennce of the “fat burning” low rest rate days and more on other days? Or does this make no sense and fail miserably?
