Work each muscle group with two different sets of excercises (ie, curl bar/machine curl, then dumbell curls), and at least 3 different muscle groups each day (mix up upper/lower body workouts in between to rest). 6 sets, start light/high-rep finish heavy medium rep.
Eat whole foods. Simple whey protein, and most importantly get a post workout to include a fast digesting protein/carb blend with BCAAs. I like Aftershock, tastes damn good too!

That little amount of lifting I will loose size. It really depends on what the pesons goals are.
