Well, one recommendation I would have for you in terms of making great strides with the lifting aspect, would be to stick to dumbbells as much as possible (except for exercises where a cable will offer you more resistance through a greater range of motion).

Flat and incline press need to be dumbbells. I can't do bar anymore because my shoulders are kaput, but I always had better results with dumbbells anyway as far as size gains went. Flys should be dumbbells and pec deck, but if you can only do one of the two, make it the pec deck. You should be able to tell which method of weights works you harder and through a greater, more isolated motion. Like I said before, everyone is different.

Also, how are you grouping your muscle groups (i.e. what do you work on the same day), and how many days do you go before your cycle starts over again (i.e. how much rest for each group)? A lot of time you can experiment with grouping to net much better results. Depending on how you group, there is always going to be at least one muscle that gets screwed out of days off, so it's best to make sure it's up to the task (for me it's triceps since I do multiple pressingexercises for shoulders on shoulder/bicep/back day and I'm on a two day cycle).

Wink

Just went to Max Muscle today and picked up NO-Xplode from BSM. Lemme first off say that yes in fact this stuff works. But, be careful with dosage as your body needs to get used to all the caffeine and supplements going into your body. Along with this drink ALOT of water or else you will feel like shit. Ran 3 miles today and did 11miles on the bike.

Nice.

Yeah the water is very important for the supplements to work properly, but caffeine counteracts NO2-based supplements, limiting their effectiveness. Be careful not to over-supplement yourself. Are you on the bodybuilding.com forums? There's really an endless well of knowledge there, and you can get straight info on supplementation from somewhere besides the manufacturer's hype.

BMI is garbage for many people, especially people who lift for big gains. At 5'9" and 203 pounds, I believe it has me in the "obese" range. Yet, I'm less than 15% body fat by caliper method. By no means am I as lean as I would like to be, or as lean as I was before I left the Corps, but I'm far from obese. I'm not a fan of all of these methods of telling us just how fat we are. I use the mirror as my judge. Unfortunately, people are generally not critical enough of themselves in this country when they see their reflections.

Not quite, but I generally agree about the obsession part. Not sane to expect to lose 2 lbs every 3 days. Very bad approach, IMO.

I don't believe in a strict diet all the time. I take a day off every 2 weeks and it is necessary/convenient for social happenings.

It was yesterday and I got drunk again. That means that 93% of the time, I control what I eat.... goal 1800kcal acceptable up to 2100. Average loss of 0.58lbs per week.

From 238.5lbs, I lost more than 70lbs. I want 146lbs (BMI 21) and possibly lower. I intend to eat this way for the rest of my life - click for details.

I do moderate cardio 30-45minutes 5-6 times week and I reward myself with a beer.

I might do some resistance training later but it is not an high priority for me. It is not to gain muscle, just twice a week to compensate for effects of aging, basically and improve my agility.
