YOu will always have to make adjustments based on real-world changes but, in general, an arm workout won't burn the same number of calories as larger muscles. In that the burn from weight training isn't massive in the first place, I'm not sure the difference will be that big.

So if one was to do....
Mon:Upper (Chest Specialization)
Tues:Lower (Quad/Calves Specialization)
Weds:Free day(walk, sports, circuit, grip, nothing)
Thurs:Upper (Chest Specialization)
Fri:Lower(Quad/Calves Specialization)
Sat:Free day(walk, sports, circuit, grip, nothing)
Sun:Off

Would it be retarded to put in 30mins aerobic post lift or 30-45mins in morning before breakfast?

Nice. Thank you Lyle. Just read it. I will put together something closer to what you wrote (eliminating HIIT). But still, with doing 4 lift days (upper/lower), would it be horrible to free days on weds/sat? I mean like a pick-up soccer game, hike, work on grip. Part of me thinks I could even do an arm thing since that is not very taxing. But I will be doing cardio in the AM on MTTHF and lifting in PM.

In picking the 2 body parts, you say three if one is small. So basically calves or biceps correct?
