    Great thanks Inatic!! I'll start off and keep going until I feel a step up/change is required. perhaps an assessment after 5-6 weeks (would that be about right?)
    I just thought that some muscle groups may not be getting worked as hard as others, I guess in those different exercise movements there is activation of the secondary muscles in some fashion....
    Cheers!

    After the first 3 sessions I'm wondering if I should be doing more. Just doesn't feel like I'm doing enough. So i did some HIIT after the 3rd session :cena:. I'll keep it going though, I'll stay with it a month and re assess.

    Sorry Inatic, been flat out, Started a new career and have young family, oh, and quite demanding wife :-( lol.
    By 'more' meaning I seem to feel like i still have plenty of energy after the session even though I feel like I've worked as hard as I can. But about an hour later I feel like I've done a good session. I guess I'm expecting to be completely exhausted!

    If main goal currenly is fat loss (I know diet is main part) are full bodies effective to do each workout or should full body be incorporated into the week concentrating on specific muscle groups?

    Training does come secondary to diet with fat loss, your right :) so keep the diet tight. As far as training there are a million ways you can do it. Upper/Lower Split, Upper Day/Lower Day/Full Body Day, all Full Body Days. It's all good stuff :thumb:

    I see some of these post are quit old but they look informative. I am aware that fat loss depends on diet at least 70% and the rest is exercise and genes. I need to get the diet down. I will do really well at time but then break. Thats why I found this site. Thought maybe if I can make myself more accountable I will do better.

    Looking forward to starting this workout! Loving all the positive feedback (through the years!) I am starting to train for a half marathon and am hoping this will allow me the time on the off days to do some running (I know, I know, running is frowned upon, but this half marathon is more of a social event)! I am a firm believer in the 'less is more' policy I have learned on here.

    I just got done reading Erik's 10 mistakes for fat loss and was wondering if the volume should be reduced in this plan when training in a calorie deficit?

    I can tell you I'm in a deficit and my volume is considerably greater than this.

    I was am hoping someone has advice for me. i've tried to do my own full body work out 2 days a week but am so excited to try this cuz i really dont know what i'm doing. I've been doing two full body and i do two one hour classes that are cardio based but use weights nothing super heavey i'll do 40 lbs for the whole class. its a minute of weights a min of cardio a min of weights you get how it goes and the other class is a lot of tabata and stuff like that. so my questions is should i do the three days weight and cut down on one of the classes. i dont naturally carry alot of muscle but am looking to lose 15 lbs too. and doing the extra day i know myself with a full time job starting my own business and a 5 year old with lots of activities. once in a while i'll throw a run in too. sorry so long , these threads are a life saver for me.

    losing fat will be dictated by your diet.

    I'd go with 3 full bodies and cut down on that class or even take it out.. See how that goes for 2-4 weeks with diet tweaked and then consider adding some 'cardio' or keep that short run you enjoy.
