Slicer021 is off to a bad start
Default Cutting and Full Body

Hey all. I am finally getting back on my fitness horse after being knocked off for a bit. I have always had issues with my dedication mainly due to the times I have to work out and the fact that I don't see results quickly. Hopefully now with my wife behind me I can get things moving. Have always been a program hopper but after reading rough all kinds of threads here I think I am settling in to a full body approach with some cardio on my off days. I am 33yo, 5'10, and 245 lbs and guesstimate around 27-30% bf. My question is while cutting is the full body approach good and is there specific routines that are better than others when cutting or maybe some tweaks to be made. Thank you all in advance for any information you can give me.

Hey! Grats on gettin back into working out

Weight loss is calories out > calories in. You can program all day long your workouts but if you only eat cake, you'll just be a very strong dumpling.

Full bodies are fine, I really like either rep goal systems as laid out by our very own bendthebar in his book "massive iron" or "starting strength" both have great full body options for gaining some strength and moving weight around.

Watch what and how much you eat, track your progress, adjust as necessary.

and have fun while your doing it.

And don't gloss over this point.

Making sure you enjoy what you do is essential to your success.

When I first started, I didn't have my diet down properly and was eating plain brown rice and fish all day till two in the morning and was miserable doing it, until I realised I didn't need to be so strict and actually started enjoying my eating and lifting, rather than it being a chore.

If you don't enjoy it then you point blank won't suceed, because eventually you'll have enough of the lifestyle.

So just make sure, weather it be with your training or diet, then you're not doing anything that makes you miserable.

You will be fine.

Moderation and balance with food.
Make progress and force adaptation with weights (get stronger).

When you cut yor BF% in half, you'll have to start sweating the details.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I did go ahead and purchase " Massive Iron " and " Massive 6 " from Tigerfitness. I figured it would be good reading even if I don't use the rep goal style of training right now. Also wanted to support some of the MAB community as much as I could. Do you all think it's best to do cardio on rest days or after your workout and keep rest days for rest?

Knowledge is good.

Moderate cardio will be restorative.

Get your blood moving and get loose, but don't go so hard it affects your recovery from the weights.
