    Started at 328lbs
    Current at 227lbs and counting.
    Current goal 225lbs (step by step)

    If i we're you i would be doing a circuit training program with a upper/lower split. Do all super sets. Add in maybe 2-3 days of HIIT training. Either on a treadmill or boxing bag

    why should he do high reps? Unless you mean like cardio I can understand, but problem is that people that to believe that muscle mass has different 'settings'. But fact is: you either grow or you don't. The way you're build and your muscle looks like is in your DNA and you can't ''work on your peak'' ''train dry to get more definition''.

    Grow & cut = lean muscle mass. If you don't want more muscle, but want to stay at the same place and want to keep it right there. Yeah, cardio and high reps may just do the trick; but 4-10 reps with less pushing does it too (:

    You're dumb man.. Mass building comes from heavy low reps 4-6 reps... lean mass as in cutting up comes from lighter higher reps such ass 10-12 or more reps

    So what do you think, should I continue working on my strength doing jasons novice 5x5.
    How high I need my numbers before switching to a pure size routine? Current squat 270, dead 300 (usually just add 30 lbs to what I squatted), bench 230. Have added 5lbs to my lifts every other day since I started. Squat every other day bench every other workout is y squat numbers are higher. I think im getting close on my bench to a stall number, doing 5 sets of 5. I still got plenty left below I think.
    Started at 328lbs

    If it were me, I would stick with your 5x5 and keep on trucking with it. Jason's program is built on compound lifts and progressive overload-- you can't go wrong with those principles as a relatively new lifter. Keep up the great work and congrats on your progress to date.

    I think it's cool that your wife squats.

    I'm being serious.. He needs to do higher reps... Get on a circuit training program.. He's a big guy. Diet being most important. He has a big base to work off of. He's got to start getting rid of all that fat...

    Could you explain to me why high reps = burning fat. But lower reps/heavy weight does not? I would think the more you push your body the more fat you will burn....but maybe that's my silly way of thinking.

    Good posing. Hide the flabby midsection whilst pressing your arms against something to make them look huge. Actually had me fooled until I saw the second set of pics!

    But still man, your arms definitely aren't small. Once you cut up I'm sure you'll look pretty damn solid.

    Technically he's right, higher rep sets will generally get you more out of breath, which will cause more calories to be burned in the same amount of time. However you'd get an even better result doing cardio. So heavy weight + cardio > Light weight IMO
    Bench - 200lbx1 (1.5x BW)
    Squat - 300lbx1 (2.2x BW)
    Chin Up - BW+100lb x 1

    The intensity of your workout is the most important factor. If you exercise with light weights and take around two minutes to complete 20 reps, you will not get your heart rate in the fat burning zone -- the minimum heart rate to start burning fat. According to the American Council on Exercise, your fat burning zone is roughly 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate. For example, someone whose maximum heart rate is around 220 beats per minute should exercise with a heart rate of at least 132 to burn fat. The key to burning fat with light weights and high repetitions is to go hard and fast to get your heart rate up. This is why I said to do supersets..

    Lighter weights and high repetitions have their place in exercise, especially for people new to exercise or those recovering from injuries. It's also effective for toning up dormant muscles, or muscles that are under active. If you are planning to bulk up, body build, or lose weight quickly, you're better off increasing your weights so that you can only do 10 to 12 repetitions per set with perfect form before fatiguing.

    I think it's cool that your wife squats.

    So if intensity is the main factor, I really like the 5x5 im on its easy to follow since im pretty new at this. Would just shortning the breaks I take and trying to go 8 reps instead of 5 be a good start?
