    but when i'm in trunks or naked i look like :ugh:

    I'm starting to see definition in my traps, delts, biceps and legs but my chest and belly are still unsightly. recently took measurements:

    neck 14.5
    chest 41
    bicep 13.5
    forearm 10.5
    belly 39
    hip 43
    thigh 22
    calf 14.5

    i'm 5'11 and go from 180 to 184 depending on water weight.

    I'd like some opinions on where I should go from here. i'm doing the "pur" routine posted but lifting heavy to failure so i'm squeezing out 4 sets of anywhere form 5 to 10, then doing either 15 HIIT cardio or 33 steady state cardio afterwards. edit: i also take a brisk walk everyday at lunch for about 30-40 minutes to add some additional calorie burn.

    halp.

    Do what Pur says, he knows what he is talking about.

    as a beginner you're better off doing a BB routine just to get some mass on you (higher reps for the most part). not saying heavy lifting doesnt have a place though

    spot on mon-fri with average macro of 35/35/30. I eat around 1900-2100 calories daily, and burn around 2700-2900 (according to bodybugg).

    weekends though is a different story. i don't time my meals, drink alcohol and eat 2-3 average american meals over the weekend :(

    I know that's probably causing huge set backs and i'm slowly making it better.

    you could techincally just stay at around 180 and lift weights and definition will come slowly but surely.

    ive found that im in the same boat as you. i was at 210 and im slowly losing weight but the cheat meals turn into cheat days then cheat weeks. so ive cut out as much shit food and alcohol. its helping more.

    1) Do the pur routine as written. And there's nowhere in his routine which says you can't go heavy.. you're just going heavy for more reps!

    2) If you KNOW you're slowing your progress by drinking and eating like shit 2 days in a row... just don't it.. it's not hard. Or if you'd rather get drunk and eat pizza then just accept that your weight loss will be slower. It's about priorities.. you choose them

    hah! i'm lifting the heaviest i can with proper form. i'm weak as hell though, barely benching 135, squatting 155, not sure what my last deadlift was, guessing 155.

    So far so good. I've made good progress in my lifts, as well as dropping a few more pounds.

    I'm in the same situation. I've lost ~100lbs, but I still need to shed another 15. I've noticed lifting with more intensity recruits more muscle and raises your heart rate quite a bit (obviously). It's all in the article.

    That's fine man.. if it's heavy for you, that's all that matters. Everybody starts somewhere. When I first bench pressed I got pinned by the empty bar and had to get a friend to lift it off me... seriously.

    I ended up starting to bench press using 10lb dumbells until I could eventually press the empty bar for reps.
