    Would this routine be okay to use if your goal is fat loss?

    To repeat what I'm always saying, fat loss is a consequence of diet, not a particular program.

    Yes Smuggie I definitely realize that. I was just commenting that I'm using this particular routine as a way to maintain and not lose the muscle that I already have while I'm losing the extra weight. Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear. :)

    I plan to begin this program next week. Should these be supersets at all, or is there a rest between each individual set? Please and Thank you. :)

    If anyone is interested, here is the 3 Day Full Body Workout that I made to hole punch and keep in my notebook when I was doing it. Hope it saves someone some time and they look cool at the gym. :p

    "T", in the upcoming months it will be fun to see how those who use your Fullbody workout - the program, improve... There's nothing better than looking into a mirror and seeing the rewards of rep -n- set cycling...

    Can you/should you cycle through this 2X per week? Do you need to have a day off between cycles? I'm thinking my plan would look something like:

    Monday: Day 1
    Tuesday: Day 2
    Wednesday: Day 3
    Thursday: Cardio/off
    Friday: Day 1
    Saturday: Day 2
    Sunday: Day 3
    Monday: off/cardio
    etc.

    Does this look right?

    Thanks! :)

    OK, I admit I'm a n00b. Why is the rest interval 120s? What determines this time? What happens if you rest longer or not as long?

    Because you need to rest

    Heavier loads require longer rest intervals.
