    Im 6'0, 275, I've lost 5 lbs in the last 2 weeks. Does this seem like a good workout? Am I missing any big muscle groups besides abs? I plan to be 190-200 by the end of the year.

    I hope you dont do all of that in one session.

    Leg press?? WTF? you weigh 275, but only do 2 plates on either side?

    bottom line...no, it doesn't seem like a good workout.

    Yeah all of that in one day. I am a weak fatty, not a strong brolie. I could probably do more with the leg press but I don't like my legs to feel like jello.

    If you ar that out of shape, no matter what you are doing you are going to loose weight. If its working for you, keep doing it until its not working anymore.. If loosing weight is your only concern.
    Ive got a friend that does full body workouts 2x a week. Goes against everythig rational, but I can't convince him other wise.

    Seems to work for him though, hes 6'3" 240 lbs, and about 12% bf. So who knows?

    I do this 4 times a week. I am very outta shape, and I am only trying to lose weight, and if I gain some muscle in the process, then I'll take it. I used to be 190 6'0.
