At 6'3, 180 pounds and by chosing 3 times per week lifting (not activity level) as the multiplier, my maintenance is calculated to 2600 calories.

If I chose another calculator with "activity level" as the multiplier instead, lightly active gives me 2700 and moderately active 3000 calories.

When I used a BodyBugg and lifted 3 times per week with no cardio, my overall maintenance was 2800 (3000 lifting days, 2650 rest days).

 

Now, I lift 4x a week and do interval cardio on 2 other days which I guess bumps me to 3000 or so. So I'd go with moderately active in your case unless your calculated calories seem way off when you compare it to my height and weight.

Only real way is to weigh what you eat and watch your weight over like a month. My maintenance now is different from the last time I was this heavy.

First day week 3 smolov jr, it seems to be getting easier.
Even had some power left to do a couple a decent DLs after my smolov squat & bench sets : )
Looking forward to retest my 1RM next week.

RFL experiment update, if anyone cares: down 11 lbs in 15 days so far. Cut back volume, but haven't had to drop weight on the bar. Hoping I can go 2 1/2 more weeks (5 weeks total) and get 20 lbs. total weight loss.

i will admit globo gyms are pretty motivating to lift at - ran into a guy im distant acquantainces with. dude is thick, solid, tight and has done a few bodybuilding shows and is looking to place in provincials next year. definitely makes one want to work harder.

What is your guys squat programming like? I feel like mine is all kinds of not efficient and I could be doing a lot better.

So far what I do is 2 sets of 8 that for warmups, 1 set of 8 with a little heavier, then i go to my working sets of 5x5, then i lower the weight again, do one set of 8 again, then lower weight again and two sets of 8

three work sets, repetition vary with what week I'm on.

I thought you did like bodybuilding shit? Why are you doing like 10 sets of squats. Get your variation on.

I start all my workout days with a big compound lift

Chest day starts with flat bench

shoulder day with overhead press

leg day with squats

and back day with deadlifts.

i train all of these for strength, then use accessory lifts for hypertrophy

eg

45x10
95x8
135x5
185x3
225x2
275x1
315x1
(more singles if I feel like it)
then i back off to whatever rep scheme I'm going to work at for the day, 275x3's, 295x2's, 225x10, etc.

it looks to me that you are wasting a lot of either time and/or effort on warmups - if you are doing your last warmup set x 8, you're either cooking yourself for your work sets or its too light to be worthwhile. even if your work sets are for 5's, i really like the idea of hitting a heavier single beforehand simply to make your 5rm weights feel much lighter. post-activation potentiation i think its called. i dont pay too much attention to ***science*** but 275x10 after 375x1 was a breeze, whereas when im warming up the idea of even 275x10 is like a kick in the balls.
