You're probably overtraining because you're not that 245 lbs behemoth that you're lifting with. I mean the guy outweighs you by 40 lbs. Chances are he can handle a little more than you can.
Try an abreviated version of his routine and typing without using caps lock. You'll probably find you get better results in the gym, and more serious responses in this forum.

His routine may work for him, it would NOT work for me at all. It seems the same for you.
We're all different, no one program works for everybody. I'd try a more basic 3 day split to get your base back first.

Damn, i've been on the internet too many years. When I read all caps I think i'm being yelled at. But it could be a bunch of things including what was already said. Diet may not be the right type to keep up with that training. Stress(the reason of your departure of the gym) Can sap strength like no other. Your being smaller is a big factor too.
Basically you can folow his routines as a partner, just use the weights you're able to handle without overworking yourself.

sounds like an experitment that failed, everyone does that until they find the what and the how that gives results, unfortunately some people never discover those parameters, its all here, you can find it

I think iam going to go back to my 4 day a week routine. which is.
(mon) chest-tris 12sets 12-16reps
(tues) bis-back 12sets-bis 9sets-back 12-16reps
(thurs) legs-shoulders 12sets 12-20reps
(fri) bis-tris 12sets 12-20reps
and 2-3min rest in between sets. maybe this way i can get back to my old size.

If you put the original post NOT IN CAPS LOCKS MORE PEOPLE MIGHT READ IT, I know for one I dont even bother reading those types of post and I am sure many other people won't read that also, it is a eyesore.
