Well, it's my first post here in fitness, so i will post only my routine.

I am actually doing "Starting Strength" routine, and it's pretty good routine, i have just 2 months training myself and i got a lot of progress in my stats.

Stats:
Squat: 190 lbs.
Deadlift: 225 lbs.
Bench press: 135 lbs.
Overhead press: 115 lbs.

Routine:
-Day 1:
*-Squat
*-Deadlift
*-Bench press

-Day 2:
*-Squat
*-Deadlift
*-Overhead press (In fact here should be the "power clean" exercise, but it's hard to find a gym that let you do this one, so... Overhead press it's good.)

The routine it's very simple to do, you just need to define your maximum weight that you can lift up(100%), then calculate the 40%, 60% and 80% of it and to the next:

1x5 at 40%
1x3 at 60%
1x1 at 80%
3x5 at 100%

It's the same in all the execises exept for deadlifts, in that one, just do 1x5 at 100% because it's too much stress on your lower back (Trust me, and if you don't have a good way to do it, it's gonna hurt like hell x__X).

This routine is only for 3 days in a week, for example, monday, wednesday and friday, the other 2 days, or 3 if you go on saturday too, just do cardio a good run for at least 20 minutes it's for than enough (I make a run of 30 minutes at 7 mph, but i have a good condition, God bless DDR and ITG xP).

And for diet... Well, it's not a diet, it's just a good way to eat, and it depends in what are you lloking form if you are looking for cut weight you need to do the next.

Reduce you carbs at maximum 80 grams per day.
Increase your protein at least 100 grams per day.
Fat it's not so important, just try to evade Sat fat and trans fat.

Another thing to do is to calculate your BMR, but, that is a long process to find, in my case i don't eat more than 1600 cals per day, once you find it, reduce it 500 cals per day. (How do i know the cals that i already ate? www.livestrong.com/myplate, just register there and you can track your food daily, BTW, i'm not making any promotion of the web page xP)

If you want to bulk (Increase weight, muscular weight mainly), you need to eat more than 125-150 grams of carbs per day (and from good stuff like whole weat bread and white rice) and at least 200 grams of protein per day, fat, like i said it's not so important, read above for info :P (avoid that 2 fats). And for your BMR, increase it 500 cals per day.

If you decrease your cals in 500 per day, you are gonna lose 1 pound per week.
If you increase it, you will gain a pound per week.

For me, in this 2 months i have lost 22 pounds of pure body fat, and gain like 4 pounds of muscle.

Hope this help anybody, and if you need help with this, it's free to add me on MSN (juanpe0890@gmail.com), Facebook (Juan Pedro, my image it's me with a Pedobear face xDDD) or send me a PM.

Hehehe, im glad to find a /fit/bro here, and well, i'm not doing 5x5, remember just to do 3x5 at the last phase of the exercise.

And something else, are u using broteins shakes or something? because part of my diet is a strong base of proteins every day, how i tell you, at least 120-150 grams per day (i usually eat 150-180 grams)

And looking at your stats, i mirin ur squat and deadlifts! i am having a difficult time trying to level up that things x___X

There is nothing evil about eating a lot of protein, but barely anyone would need 200 grams per day, not even most weight lifters. A body can't even store that much protein; it just gets turned into glucose like everything else we eat.

Uhm... Well, im not sure of that, because actually a trainer weight lifter is the one who telled me this, that his intake of protein is around 180-200 grams per day, but it's just a recommendation, i eat like 120-150 grams per day, and rarely 200 grams, because it's pretty hard to get this amount and mantain a 1600 cals per day diet.

But i will investigate a little more about this, because now that you say so, 200 grams is a LOT, but it's working for me, i have a nice progress in just 2 months.

I think you're looking at it incorrectly. The question isn't "will you make good progress on 200g protein / day," because the answer to that is obviously "yes." It's "will an intake of 200g protein / day result in a better progress than a lesser intake?"

As far as I know, there is no research indicating any additional benefit to such high protein intakes (aside from in very large individuals).
