Vince Gironda 8x8 for Cutting?

Hi CT,

I’ll start a 6-week fat loss phase in 2 weeks. I’ll be eating at a moderate deficit, and for training I would like to try out an 8x8 workout, which you have written about in the past.

I read Vince’s principles and I came up with this split. I would like you to critique it.
