    Been a pretty thick 200-207 for a while, guess I just got lazy from lifting and not minding enough cardio. Anyways... I'm down to 191 already, and ideal would be a lean 175-180 lbs.

    Any suggestions or additions to this routine? I feel like maybe I should toss in an extra exercise for back... maybe pull-ups. Leg day is killer :noes:

    Thats a whole lot of protein all at once for dinner. If i were you i would take like half that shake immediately post workout and the other half a bit after dinner, before bed.

    I wanted a new routine regardless, I was getting too comfortable with my old one.

    What is that, 1500 calories? At your weight I'd start by consuming around 2500.

    Id say you could add some more good fats to the morning, almonds or something like that.

    Maybe some good carbs to go with that morning shake, like a banana

    Your meals are incomplete. Having a scoop of protein is not a whole meal...you need some healthy fats to go with it (some almonds or walnuts or something) if you're not going to have carbs. You also need to have a much bigger breakfast....3-4 egg beaters and 1c skim milk is like 200 calories. Even on a cut diet I aim for a 500-600 calorie breakfast and have smaller meals throughout the day.
