RE: Advice on My Workout Routine
I am sure you'd like Cathe's expert opinion, but until she has time to respond, perhaps you'd like to consider my average-Joe opinion.
I feel like more info is needed for the best reply: I wonder how long have you been working out altogether. How long have you been doing this particular routine? Sometimes the body needs to do something new to shock it into burning more calories.
I am also a bit inclined to say that you might get more long lasting results by starting to build a bit more muscle--and muscle burns calories--if you changed the routine a bit. For example Sun doing just chest, shoulders, and tris and Wed. doing back and bis. And then on say, Saturday you could do all legs in a fast paced circuit format to keep your heart rate up and still burn fat.
Just my two cents Donna. I usually tend to lean towards building muscle as a permanent weight-loss solution. But I could be wrong. Maybe this isn't appropriate if you are dieting. Maybe under those conditions it isn't realistic to build more muscle. Cathe or someone else may know better that what you are suggesting is better for losing the last 10. I do know this though, as your calories decrease, protein needs increase to maintain and build muscle.
