    Forgot to include smoking. Not as much as I used to, but still a bit. The just performing heavy squats and deadlifts thing isn't working for me. Gaining mass well quick, but not staying lean or looking too good. Routine is basically this

    A
    Work up to a max deadlift then perform like a couple tripples
    Do doubles of squats at sub maximal weights until im bored
    Do exercise that someone on T nation said was sick (gonna be snatch grip deads for a while) that probably doesn't do anything

    B
    Bench 135lb for 1 set of like 20+reps because its kind of like the NFL combine, but im too weak to bench 225lb for reps and joe defanco told me to
    Work up to a single on the overhead press and then do a couple tripples
    Depending on how Im feeling some close grip pressing or 3 board press
    Super set dumbbell rows with face pulls

    C
    Work up to a max single or like triple on squat then perform a couple of submaximal triples
    Bunch of doubles of deadlifts against chains
    Some kind of hip hinge/ lower back movement for higher reps then normal

    D
    Work up to a max single on the bench and then a couple tripples
    Work up to a max single on the close grip bench or if I don't feel I have the energy then like 5x5
    Chin ups if they aren't hurting
    Superset rows and face pulls

    Lifts have been going up very fast and im getting bigger quickly, but im also getting fatter and most of the size is on the upper back, lower back, legs, glutes. Want more leanness and muscles I can see.

    Fuji, the calories got to go somewhere. Either met-con or diet.

    If you can't do either of those. You could try an ecg stack, but I dunno how good that is for your heart.

    If you are going to cut, cut. But trying to do both ain't gonna work too well unless you got charly's genetics. You might want to try leangains or something like that.

    fuji, don't you eat at least 4,000-5,000+ calories per day? That seems pretty standard for making noob gains but once you're experienced, your lifts aren't going up as quickly and you want to lean out, you should probably lower the intake at least a little bit.

    Either that or do some cardio. It's good for your heart, releases endorphins, makes you better at sex, etc. It's pretty awesome.

    Without an actual caloric deficit, i.e. getting the diet in check, EC or clen won't do shit.

    I'd also consider ditching snatch deads in favor of actual snatch pulls. they build your upper back like nothing else, regardless of what some dude says on t-nation.
