Might get ripped for this, but since I can't add anything in the form of clothing advice I thought I might offer up my knowledge in this area. I have a lot of experience and have been all over the map.

I'm 5'10, have been 185 @ 6% body fat, I've been a soft 195, I've been 225 at 6%. I've power lifted, run marathons, been a sprinter, a lot of crossfit experience, and have used pretty much any popular lifting routine or programme. I've been lean and strong eating extremely healthy, eating anything I want, or even diets with less than 20g of carbs a day. I also have no BS insight into supplements, what works, what's worth the money and whether or not you are even in the place to use something.

If anyone would like some guidance or advice don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best.

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.

I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.

I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer, I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago, I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

Last I checked I'm 900 lbs at 90% BF. Halp.

(this is due to me not listening to another expert on this forvm and eating more than 120g/day of protein and having unrealistic expectations of muscle groath)

Dude, this so sounds like a name for a shitty rap group - I can picture it already:

"Rollin' average 70-120 G's"
We'd rap about proper macros and how it's unnecessary to get 1g/lb of protein. Other songs would include growing up in the 'hood, only lifting sandbags, but now pimpin' it @ Planet Fitness with platinum power racks and iced out lifting belts.
