    I am a groomsman for a friend of mine that I went to high school with. I have to get fitted for a tux about 3 weeks before the wedding.

    My thing is that I've just started to get into a nice routine with lifting, and the workouts are short, intense, and as heavy as I can go. Someone told me that I should switch up my routine to more reps and lighter weight because I might bulk up too much in between the fitting and the wedding day (or even the day before when I have to pick up the tux, and try it on to see if they have to make any alterations) with my current routine.

    I am kinda sad that I would have to change things up because I thought I was doing ok. I just started this routine and I'm enjoying it, unlike a lot of other times I would try and do weights and it felt like crap. My big three aren't all that great (S = 235, DL = 155, B = not going to say, it sucks that bad), but I'm trying.

    Need some opinions on this. What should I do?

    3 weeks, you won't change that much

    btw your dl should be more than your squat

    I did a cycle of winstrol in between my fitting and the actual wedding day. I put 10 pounds on and my tux still fit perfectly. You'll be fine.

    I'm working on it

    Squatting is something I've always done, deadlifts are not.
