Hello all, I've been training for fat/weight loss since November. Started out at 280 pounds, I'm at 249 now and down two pant sizes (originally 42, now 38), etc. It's definitely working for me.
But I'm finding my current routine (full body deadlift day, then full body squat day, rinse and repeat) is quickly becoming 'easy', even with increasing weights. My old roommate, who's been lifting for years, suggested I move toward a Push/Pull workout.
His basic suggestion was to do a day of Lower Body Pulls, a day of Upper Body Pushes, a day of Upper Body Back, and a day of Lower Body Pushes. He said that I'm at the point where moving away from full body a bit would be in line with my current goals, which can be summarized as 'jacked'. I have no issues being 'bigger', but I want to be impressively big, not fat big.
Now, I'm asking for help in filling out the details of his suggestion; which exercises to use, rest intervals, rest days, etc. that would be achievable with my current level of physical fitness.
I currently deadlift 305 for 3 of 10, squat 280 for 3 of 10, and 125 for 3 of 10 bench press (something I want to improve on, but I'm having trouble with), I use 35 pound DBs for basic shoulder presses and basic curls both at 3 of 10. I also play soccer every Wednesday as additional intensive cardio on top of the 20 minutes I do after every workout.
Hopefully that gives you a bit of an idea of where I'm at, and hopefully somebody will be gracious enough to give me some more detailed direction to work from.
