Well I do believe you should train symmetrically, hitting your lower body and upper body with the same intensity. But here is how a week would break down.
All my weight-training exercises are for 4 sets and my repetitions are typically 10 to 12 reps. All of my calf-raise exercises I do until failure because it is such a small muscle and needs to be shocked. The only way is to do as many repetitions as you can. I superset all of my weight training exercises, which really helps me burn calories while training anerobically.
I typically do my cardio about 3 times a week at very high intensity, which I believe is more effective for burning calories. I typically run about 3 miles on the road or track at an 8-minute mile pace. I rest on the weekends, which allows my body to recuperate from a hard week of weight-training. I also perform ab training every other day, two to three exercises per day.
Cheat meals are very important and I advise everybody when dieting to incorporate at least one cheat meal a week. Your body needs that cheat meal because you are depriving your body of necessary fats and carbs throughout the week while dieting. That cheat meal allows you to get those fats and carbs back in your system and it will actually speed up your metabolism.
Remember: when consuming cheat meals, please do it within moderation. Don’t eat to fill your stomach. The cheat meal is more for your taste buds to savor those unhealthy and sweet foods your body is craving after eating super healthy during the week. Your body needs cheat meals and I wouldn’t advise dieting without at least one cheat meal per week. Typically when I train my clients, I always incorporate at least one cheat meal a week so they get through the dieting to attain their fitness goals.
