I think the light day would be the conditioning day and then add extra cardio as I get leaner and fitter...

Cheers, I'd definitely take Offroad's caution on board. 4 full body's is rough, at least initially you really need to hold off on doing anything strenuous at all on the two lighter days. But for me personally I know what I can handle and when to back off so I made it work, even 5 days a week was fine for a short time. That kind of workload really makes fat loss consistent even when you've already lost a lot of fat.

Up to you though, think about what you can handle. You always have the route of sticking to a 'normal' weight routine and just concentrate on making up the deficit with cardio and calorie reduction. That works for most people too.

Cheers.

Are you not liking the MAB Powerbuilding routine Carl? I imagine you may be finding it tough to get to the gym 9 days out of 12. if so, why not just pick the Full Body Powerbuilding routine here at MAB that is 3 Xper week and maybe customize it a bit to suit your needs.

Thanks Jim, yeh I really like the Powerbuilding one, but its hard getting to the gym that often. Im just playing with ideas to be honest. I may do a regular 3 day routine, or a split or a full body or something more specific for fat loss, i dont know to be honest, but I need to try to get on something that i can stick on for a while while i lose some fat. I may just do a pull, a push and a squat every day and leave it there....

Carl.

I don't want to derail you from what's already been said. Just wanted to post what I will be doing. I am going to work the pull, squat, push program 3 days per week with 1-2 accessory lifts.

Instead of sticking to a schedule of lifts, I am going to draw from a pre-determined pool and work what I feel like that day...light, heavy, pump, singles, whatever.

Squats pool will be squats, box squats, front squats, zercher squats and godlet squats.

Push will be bench variations and OHP variations.

Pull with be deadlift variations, power cleans, power snatches, high pulls.

Accessory will be bodyweight, rows, side bends, abs, closegrip bench, curls, whatever.

I am setting some parameters...one bench and OHP session per week. One squat session per week minimum. One deadlift session minimum every 2 weeks.

This can be a hard approach to pull off. You really need to work hard and make sure you are progressing on some level.

I love the idea of that type of set up, but I dont know whether I would be able to track my progression properly doing it. Im unsure as to whether I would just progress on one thing, but let other things fall down.
