    Not as much as you might think. You have a limited ability to recover from workload over time. A good program should take you to the edge of this regardless of how many days a week it is.

    I would have to disagree. Training style doesn't dictate the type of physique you get - that is down to achieving a balance between muscle growth and fat loss. Weight training is far more efficient...

    I think your math is a little dubious, you need to add the 80lb vest into your weight before applying the 60% (I would have said more like 50%)

    So you had to buy equipment - why not make it a...

    - calorie control
    - adequate protein, vitamins, minerals and EFAs

    Once you can easily do 15+ reps in an exercise, it ceases to be in efficient way of increasing muscle size. You are mostly improving endurance which doesn't affect size.

    You can't overtrain an individual body part - it's a systemic effect that very very few people will genuinely encounter.

    You can't say "do this many sets" out of context - how many reps? Rate of...

    That's nonsense since deadliting uses a lot of the same back muscles that pullups do.

    Don't drop lifting. In fact it's the only mandatory exercise during fat loss.

    Fat loss is about:
    - creating a controlled calorie deficit in your diet
    - getting adequate protein, vitamins,...

    You may have lost considerable amount of muscle tissue depending on your starting/current BF%.

    Muscle gives up its weight more cheaply than bodyfat - which is why people who add weight training...

    It would be if you had reached intermediate stage - which I am not sure you have in just 4 months. What are your lifts now?

    If you don't want to do 5x5, do All Pros instead.
