V3 is the best of the west for skinny bastards, and has a conditioning layout.
5/3/1 is amazing. Ive used them both. Im seeing good results with 5/3/1 with the built in progression and deloads. All my major lifts are up 50-80lbs right now.

at slightly shorter and same weight, but less activity my real maintenance is around 2800, so i'm not sure how yours came up as 2400

Thats what it comes out to during time off from all the training im only doing 30min in morning now to aid in recovery and get blood flowing.
I figured i need around 3500cal to train the way i was if not more.

I meant part 3 put the 5/3/1 sounds like good progress your making so thats a real possiablity for me to use.
But might not work for me like you, won't know till i try.
Thats one thing i came to over this time what works for one doesn't always work for me.

One has me at 3200 and needing 2700 to lose weight, fitday has me at almost 4000 just with factoring in my job, not even any of my training, it's quite ridiculous how far apart they all are, lol.

Wouldn't training the body as a whole each workout lead to better strengh?
Since i'd be doing compound exercises 3x week for each body part.
like chest press
clean and jerk
Do this 2-3/8-10x
I just made this up for example(seems pretty good though)

I know its more of a base line thing.
I know at 2200cals i lose about a lb a week doing nothing but eating the little that it comes out to and sleeping and on this thing.
Mybe 2400 isn't enough if i already burned 400 this morning.
Makes sense that i ate 3000 trained the way i did and lost muscle the week going hard core lifting/training.

I know about changing the order i was just giving a example of what i thought would be a full body workout.
Always start new w/o with major part (chest,back,leg)and change and deload from week to week.(chest press to incline 1 week)6-8reps to 2x 10 something like that right?

yeah, I actually did different exercises per body part for each of the 3 days. so if the day was chest primary i'd do flat presses, but do decline + incline the other days. Back primary i'd do deadlifts, but do pulldowns and rows the other days, and legs i'd do squats primary and leg press or extensions the other days. So on the heavy day where it is the first exercise do the serious compound, and do less compound for the other body parts

Gotcha how'd it work for ya(strengh,post fatigue,recovery,size,ect)
And sets and reps you were using
Just want a idea how its work.

eh it worked ok. Recovery was a bit rough for me, but mine is relatively poor anyhow. I did make some decent overall progress, but I was more of a recomp mode than gains. I was shooting for 24-40 reps total per exercise, so it would be 3 sets of 8 for the primary, and 2 or 3 sets of 12-20 for the others. I don't work out for strength as my tendons tend to fail first when I do.
