In fact, thatís exactly what I recommended in The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook: 2-3 short heavy weight workouts per week (to maintain muscle mass) while allowing the big caloric deficit of the diet generate fat loss. And it works.
Alternately, you could combine 2-3 short heavy weight workouts with cardio and use a smaller dietary deficit. And that works too. What wonít work (for anyone not using drugs) is to remove the heavy tension stimulus completely and move to nothing but higher reps and lighter weights.
Lyle i understand the context of the term "dietary deficit" used here. However, in all other articles when you use the term dietary deficit does that refer to just food intake alone? Or total deficit within the context of the disconnect between energy in vs out?
