Hey man thanks a lot. I was thinking of 3 sessions a week and doing a heavy, medium, and light set for each muscle group and then rotate them over the week so it looks like this:
Session 1: Leg dominant exercise 5x3-5, Chest dominant 4x8-10, Back dominant 3x12-15
Session 2 would just be an alternate of the first but the heavy, med, and light would rotate so leg dominant would be med or light and so on.
Is this a good way I hit all the angles and rep ranges without a lot of excess volume since I'll be restricting calories?
My budget is pretty tight, Most of what I make from my GA goes to bills. I do buy healthy foods, mostly. Again the weekends are tougher for me. Protein and Creatine are what I budget currently.
I've been trying to keep my carbs at the 100 gram rule, any less and I feel like I sacrifice too much of my brain power which isn't good if you're in grad school.
I walk a decent amount, I'm an on campus student and work on the third floor, so I get usually 3-4 miles a day.
I was also thinking more intense cardio sessions with shorter times. I simply don't have the time to add 45 minutes of cardio, especially at the end of my workouts. Better to do them on off days?
A friend recommended two of these CT articles. I've only skimmed them so far. I have to actually schedule some time to read them haha.
The second one is "Destroying fat", the link won't copy, I'm not sure why.
