If your looking to lose weight, it all comes down to your diet. No amount of work in the gym will help you with your weight loss if you don't clean that up first.

Strength will all come in due time.

Yeah plates were pretty expensive. Fitness Depot has metal ones for $0.88/lb but it still added up to over $300 when I got them.

Do you guys think the little slant in the garage makes a big difference when squatting and deadlifting? I think almost all garages are slanted a little so it can drain out liquids

Unless you're on some crazy high volume Russian program, you can bulk or cut on the same routine just fine.

Anyway, the sooner you get your diet in check the better. 50lbs is a lot to lose if you want to do it properly. November might seem like a long time away, but it will creep up on you fast.

I don't see a problem as long as you arrange yourself so that you're facing down slope. Just don't have your left or right side higher than the other.

Hope you didn't go cold turkey on caffeine if you had a moderate intake previously. Best to slowly limit intake until 0

You sound like a resolutioner. "GIVE ME A ROUTINE SO I CAN MAGICALLY LOSE WEIGHT"

Here, let me sum it up for you real easy.

Eat less.
Pick up heavy things. Put them down.
Repeat.

Have you not learned from your yo-yo-ing weight that crash diets are unsustainable?

Yes, lets try all sorts of random shit ranging from EC stacks to eating massive deficits and wonder why you can't keep the weight off.

Since I'm at it, I'll list out all your excuses for you:
- I got depressed
- I got on meds
- I got off meds
- Work got in the way
- I didn't have work, so I wasn't motivated
- I met a girl and broke up with her and got depressed
- blah blah blah
- I ATE TOO MUCH

115lb bench
175lb deadlift
145lb squat

I added a total of 560lb to the big three! Kind of a cool way to think about it
Damn son, you got strong.

Mine
225 bench
315 dead
305 squat
@ 175

As redsir said, as long as you're on the down slope of the slant... There's your olympic weightlifting shoe right there haha

You totally beat me to it. Everyone has an excuse. Everyone is looking for that damn magic-pill. Everyone listens and follows too much media and bro-science.

However since your searching for that magical routine I'll just spell it out for you.

Focus on the following 3 things.
  • Benchpress (if your strong enough, dumbbell bench pressing is far more effective but can injure you just as quick)
  • Chin up's to the sternum
  • Deadlifts

However as I said before, non of these matter if you don't clean up your diet. You can't get big unless the fuel you consume is in your body to support you. Remember, you should be viewing your daily goal as 90% diet and 10% to the gym.

Your better off asking us how I should eat vs how I should lift.

i get asked way too much if im on roids, im not even that big or strong

the way i see it is the more u eat, the more ur giving urself to build on. if u want to get stronger then eat. if u want to get bigger then eat more. over eating shouldnt be a issue if u have the right amount of cardio mixed into ur routine

If it were me, I would approach it as more of a challenge with the elevation change. However depending of the steepness, wouldn't be a problem when your dead lifting since the plates are round? I would hate to chase after 600 lbs of weight just because I was careless when dropping the bar.

+1 I don't see either dumbbell or barbell being more effective than the other, but both as a strong compliment to each other...

My personal unbiased view (all hypothetical):

dumbells: good for stability and triceps because dumbbells don't allow you to compensate with your dominant side like you would with barbell. dumbbells allow you to be able to merge the dumbbells at the peak activating more pecs. Good for without a spotter because you can just drop the weights

barbell: good for benching really heavy weight. Very simple, I'm not able to bench as much with dumbbell as I am with barbell because I do not have to kick the weights up into starting position unlike barbell where I can just have my spotter unload the barbell from a racked position. With the barbell, I know exactly where I need to go to perform a full range of motion (touching the chest), whereas the dumbbell will be harder to gauge how low I will need to go (alot of guys go half way and don't even realize it). With the dumbbells, I have to keep it fixed on the transverse plane (to prevent the dumbbells from falling off to the side or falling ontop of me) in addition to the saggital plane, while for barbell my goal is to push the bar straight up in front of me. however, being able to work with dumbbells and working on this stability will be highly transferable to barbell bench.

Hmph, just posting up some new PRs. 3 weeks ago I was 238, currently at 232 pounds. Cutting my way down to 200. Currently on my second month of the Jim Wendler 5/3/1.

Dead PR - 425 x 1 with a little arch of back
Bench - 315 x 1 - going to attempt a little more tomorrow
Squat - 315 x 5 - slacking a little, working my way to build flexibility to go a little lower than parallel with heavier weights
Overhead Press - 185 x 3
