I am back from my long vacation, getting back on track with my training and do want to start Upper/Lower Body routine. Have been doing two body parts a day (each twice a week) routine up until this point.
Here are my questions:
I train every morning at 5AM 6 days a week with Sundays off. Usually lift 30- 45 minutes and finish up with 30 - 45 min cardio
Is it ok to alternate upper/lower body for those 6 days ( end up training each body part 3 times a week) or is that too often?
Would 6-8 exercises (3 sets each) per workout would be too much?
The next question is about pre-workout meal. As I said , i train very early in the morning usually 20 minutes after waking up. I have been training on empty stomach for as long as i remember. I don't feel dizzy or weak in the gym, but don't want hinder my results if that is what preventing me to get rid off "soft" look..... Is it really very important to eat something so early in AM? and if so , what could that be - no cooking or time consuming?
p.s I am 5'4 , 118 lbs. I would love to be around 110 - but not skinny fat as i tend to be.
Thank you all in advance
