    You and I are opposites.

    I'm not wide but I've very thick. Arms not long, so they look big-ish. Thighs are hhhhyyooooggeeee and a lot of junk in the trunk.

    Does anyone know any good full body routines focused more on BB and hypertrophy?

    better off with an upper lower split

    day 1 upper
    day 2 lower
    rest
    repeat

    bodybuilding is exhausting in a different way, more focused on small things than big things

    I don't even know why I asked, I was never going to make pumpkin pie over baklava. Rolls or diamonds and what filling though? Prob do diamonds with pistachio since it's my first time making them.

    Looking to cut some weight after gaining weight for ~18 months. I'm up about 15-20 lbs in that time frame, currently 6'5", 225-230 lbs.

    Ballpark estimate from MyFitnessPal is that on a typical day I eat 3200 cal. 60 g carbs, 220 g fat, 250 g protein, 6000 mg sodium, 30 g sugar. I basically eat low carb when I cook at home. If I'm at a friend's place or out, I don't worry about eating low carb. That's only a couple times a week. Plus beer ~3 days a week.

    Any quick recommendations beyond eating a lot less, or a target daily calorie intake? I figure I'll drink less beer. I'm not training for any kind of competition, just looking to cut some weight for the first time in my life. Maybe see what I can lose in about 2 months of dedicated cutting.

    Should I make any adjustments to my workout plan? Right now, it's generally:

    1. Chest/Triceps (push)
    2. Back/Biceps (pull)
    3. Legs
    4. Off day, or 30-40 min cardio

    Sometimes I'll do 20-30 min of cardio after push or pull day. Sometimes I take an extra off day or do 30-40 min cardio after pull day.

    Hard to say if you should adjust your plan if you don't post your plan.

    I have had to settle for half walnut half pistachio because pistachios are expensive as fuck and I can't find ones without there shell and fuck trying to unshell a lb of pistachios. The struggle is real.

    Figure I'll cut calories to about 2500? Nothing fancy here, I eat 3 meals a day, maybe 2 on weekends if I sleep in. Here is what I typically eat at home, I guess I would just eat smaller portions.

    Breakfast
    Scrambled eggs w/ cheese
    Bacon or sausage

    Lunch
    Grilled chicken
    Salad

    Dinner
    Grilled chicken/steak/fish/pork
    Salad
    Vegetable (broccoli, asparagus, green beans, squash)

    Snacks
    Nuts
    Beef jerky
    Cheese
    Lots of coffee

    My workouts are this or some close variation:

    Chest/Triceps (push)
    Dumbbell press
    Face pulls
    Dumbbell incline press
    Flys
    Dips
    Dumbbell overhead press

    Back/Biceps (pull)
    Pendlay rows
    Pullups
    Dumbbell rows
    Curls
    Lat pulldown
    Dumbbell shrugs

    Legs
    Deadlifts
    Leg curls
    Calf raises
    Leg press
    More leg curls

    Sunday is the final day of the 4-week adaption cycle for the 4-day intermediate Sheiko program I am running. My knees are starting to ache throughout the day. Not sure if I am just being a bitch. Will continue on with the program but be cautious if my body is telling me it is too much.

    edit: tomorrow would normally be the last day of the week program-wise but my gym is holding a PL competition. Hopefully I can stay long enough to see Tee Cummins hit a 1900+ total. Heard he was growing to 242 but he cut down to 220 for his competiton a few weeks back.
