Man night time workouts with no caffeine are shit. Any pre workout supplements that won't have me up all night?

^ I work out in the evenings routinely with no stims and no issues of lacking energy. But try bata alanine+citrulline malate+creatine.

Health question: what's the consensus on smoking one or two cigars a month? Guessing it's not that bad for you.

Hey internet bros, looking for some lifting advice. I used to lift back in university but stopped when I started working full-time. Now that I am back to being a professional slacker, over the past four months I've been getting back into lifting and feel fantastic.

I'm following a modified version of starting strength: http://newbie-fitness.blogspot.jp/2007/06/starting-strength-style-workout-take.html
I've actually modified it a bit for what I can do at my gym:

A workout:
3x5 squat
3x5 bench press
3x5 flys
1x5 dead lift

B workout:
3x5 squat
3x5 standing military
3x5 bent over rows
2x8 pull-ups

I do hyperextensions and supermans for accessory work most of the time as well.

I chose this because it's worked for me in the past, I know how to do all the lifts very well, and it fits perfectly in my schedule. Other than a few breaks where I've had to take a couple weeks off for extended business trips and vacations, I made strong gains over the first three months of the program. Lately, however, I've only been able to make gains every other week or every other other week, especially on standing military and flys (I substituted these for dips because I don't have a place to do them).

I know that I'm definitely lifting under what I should be doing for my bodyweight - I weigh 67kg and I'm 5 foot 11. Excluding bar weight (I have no clue how much it weighs), I'm only doing 9 kg standing military, 17.5 kg on bench, and 30 kg on squats and I'm having a lot of trouble making gains past these weights. I'm eating relatively well and always get a good night's sleep and never drink before I work out.

I've heard suggestions that I my muscles become accustomed to always doing the same lifts and that I should mix it up and then get back to my core lifts. I also know that I could probably eat a little bit more. I eat very healthy (mostly veggies, complex carbs, lots of grilled and raw fish, tofu, beans) but do not eat to gain weight. I'm not trying to get super ripped or anything, I just want to look good naked, but at the same time I love the challenge of lifting more and more and it's frustrating I'm lifting under what I know I should be doing.

I'd love suggestions of new lifts I can add to my workout (double points if they use dumbells since we only have 1 barbell rack and 1 smith machine and I don't use the smith machine) or any advice that might help me out!!

I can post logs from the last couple months if that helps. Thanks for any advice!!

You think smoking 1-2 cigars per MONTH will have any major negative impact when you are already following an healthy diet + exercising? foo.gif

I don't, but I could be wrong. Then again, you can't exercise away the cancer

The workout itself looks great, you could easily do nothing but that for 6 months - 1 year. The reason you aren't getting stronger is almost certainly because you're not eating enough. I'd suggest using myfitnesspal to track calories, and shoot for 500 calories over what you normally eat.  Also, try to favor proteins over carbs when possible.  I found using peanut butter, milk and whey powder in a shaker bottle to be an easy way to add 500 calories to your diet.
