    hi members,

    i am starting a new cut,i am 35yo male intermediate recreational lifter 6ft tall bw 180 pounds,

    bf around 15% predominantly ugly stubb fat,looking to get down to below 10%,

    diet

    cals 2000 (carbs 100 g,pro 200g,rest filled with fats)

    no refeeds as i tend to do exactly how lyle wrote not to do it

    training

    A. bench/ohp/press/l raise/bb curl

    B. chins/row/shrugs/abs/lower back

    weekly ABA BAB

    i warm up with OH squats/sldl only with the bar just to keep lower body flexible,

    i dont wish to train the lower body as it takes toll my recovery abilities so is

    cardio and also lower body size or strength is of any concern to me,

    please critique,thanks in advance.

    Default why no legs?

    You want less than optimal results, then don't train legs!

    You want to burn less fat and make the process stagger then don't train legs!

    If you want to lose muscle and slow down your metabolism then don't train legs!

    IMO you are selling yourself short not training your legs. Start off light and slowly build up.. that way it should take all that much of a toll on your legs to begin with

    I am by no means the biggest or the strongest guy out there, and if i can smash out some heavy squats and then still do cardio anyone can

    Judging by the thread title you already feel you're doing something wrong.

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It's hard to critique. Can you provide us with a bit more than just the exercises you are performing. (Sets, reps, progression approach, etc.)

    Also, what type of press is the bolded exercise?

    bench/ohp/press

    all the exercises are done for 2x5-8..double progressing

    press is a bb standing press..

    my goal is low bf/decent Ub musculature/good overall flexibility/general health

    dont mean to b a troll..

    LB wo were very productive for me..used 5x5 developed decent legs

    compared to upper body..now want to develop my UB on par with LB..


    not intrested any more in brutalising my body and recovery abilities with heavy

    squats/deads..i respect those "kings" of all muscle builders..i want use them in

    their lighter high rep versions(oh squats/sldl) to keep my legs and hip conditioned

    and flexible..along with other metabolic benefits of high rep LB training


    ps..i understand how you hard core lifters feel about me..the context is different here..i am not justifying

    avoiding heavy LB training

    Meh, if you don't wanna train legs then don't train them. You clearly know the benefits of training them and if you're willing to sacrifice them then you probably have a reason why. I don't squat anymore but I do deadlifts once a week. Haven't had any problems with strength/growth.
