    Well, I finally hit desired weight of 220. As some may know, I had an exhausting routine but it worked. At the same time, I am now plateaued so on to some change.

    I switched to:

    Day 1: morning cardio, evening lift - chest/back
    Day 2: warmup-evening lift - legs
    Day 3: morning cardio, evening lift - shoulders/arms
    Day 4: OFF
    Day 5: morning cardio, evening lift - chest/back
    Day 6: warmup-evening lift - legs
    Day 7: morning cardio, evening lift - shoulders/arms
    Day 8: OFF
    REPEAT

    Now, with Guard drills and weekend events, things seem to come up and I can't always maintain this routine. I have also switched to more reps and running instead of elliptical. I am going to cut down a bit for air assault school through the guard. Back to more volume pull-ups, abs galore and push-ups/dips. I should be able to stay around 220 if I keep up the calories.

    Anyway, I plateaued after about 3 months so it is good to switch up and the one day rest after 3 on is about right instead of 6 days on, 1 off....
