    There's plenty of workouts out there to choose from so really it's just about finding one that suites you. For starting out most people would say start with a 5x5 or 5x3x1 routine. Next week I plan on starting this 5x5 in the link below (the first one)... It sounds legit for anyone really and you can always tweak it if you need to.

    Well, most of us are doing the cube or some variation of 531, or a combination of the two. And there's always Dave and the crazy shyt he does. Even though these are powerlifting based programs, they are easily tailored with the assistance you choose to meet pretty much any goal you have. They're all based on the squat, bench, deadlift and ohp's.

    Spend some time reading up on the stuff by Jim wendler, Brandon Lilly, chad Wesley smith, etc.

    Me, I'm kind of partial to wendler...

    My question is the 5x5 is more designed as a heavy lifting/mass gaining routine?? Right now I'm trying to cut down as well as gain. And with the 5x5 routine I'm not positive my body is completely ready for heavy lifting. Do u think 5x5 is an effective plan using only moderate weight??

    5x5's are fine, again, they're easily tailored to meet your goals with the assistance you choose.

    I did madcows 5x5 for about a year.

    It's better in most cases to have some structure when training.

    Progress is easily measured by 'is the bar going up?'

    Well I will research the names u tossed in. Check the program I like best and run with it for the next... 4 weeks?? Or 6 a better judgment cycle on personal progress?? And I agree with the fat loss. From a ton of tips from Dave I've lost nearly 25lbs in the past 2-21/2 months. But advice is why I'm here so 5x5 here I come

    Like napalm said you can always tweak it to suite your needs even if you are using lighter weight and higher reps. I just threw it out there because it is well rounded and something I'm looking to start next week. Definitely look around there is plenty out there and you may find something better for you.

    Lol if it's anything above the neck then you can do some light cardio without hurting yourself. If your having chest congestion or any other symptoms below the neck then don't bother with the gym. Hope you feel better soon man. I'm going to start that 5x5 today.

    Ok as promised my macros. So I'm trying to keep calories between 1900-2100. That break down gives me :
    Fat 38-40
    Carb 1-115
    Pro 225-250

    Now these numbers fluctuate some just because I don't always have the financial luxury of always eating what I want exactly when I want. But I will say if I stray it isn't by much or very often. I'm super dedicated to getting back on top of my game and I feel diet is the core to successfully doing so. If u guys feel those numbers need adjusted or really need to see them broken down meal by meal for better eval let me know. I just hate typing.

    cal intake wayyy too low
    you will run into metabolic wall very quickly, with nowhere to go for reduction of cals
    if you are intent on keeping carbs low, then bump up fats + increase protein
    if you bring the carbs up a bit, then still bring up fats some and protein as well

    I'm not really intent on any set idea other than "does it work for me". So what would my target fat and protein numbers need to go to??
