Progress is good right now, losing about 1.0-1.5lbs a week with most of it coming from fat. The weights I can handle are still rising regularly as well. Just looking to see if there is anything that can give me additional leverage.
The routine is shorter than seven days, so I get in 5.6 workouts per week, which works out to 16.8 exercises per week. that seemed to correspond with most other programs I've read. The plan is based around a push/pull/accessory scheme. I don't feel like the accessory work is fluff.
This was the shortest workout I could come up with that hits everything. My main goal from lifting at this point is muscle preservation while dieting so that my metabolism doesn't down-regulate.
Believe it or not I've read probably 90% of all the articles ever written on here, took quite a while, but well worth it. I'm always open to more specific feedback though, there's always something new to learn.
I feel that 1-2 hours of cardio per week is beneficial in terms of fat loss, and the bike allows me to do that while catching up on other tasks. I've done sprints, jogging, sled drag, sandbag carry, and a number of other things in the past.
As for "throwing in a couple more exercises" if I did 5 per day that would mean 28 per week which seems high, unless many of them were not compound. Remember I'm on a caloric deficit while cutting, so recovery is not all that great. What exactly would you want to add? (I have a great home gym, about the only thing I can't do is the olympic lifts due to lack of equipment, space, and training).
