Just saw this thread Jim. Think thatís a great decision, mainly the body weight. I know Iím a skinny fuk, but I have thought about this long and hard the last little bit and decided if I canít see my abs, Iím too fat lol. Itís all about my future health.
As for the training, I dunno, do what you enjoy. I legit like doing the bodybuilding higher rep stuff a lot more than I thought I would.
You know as well as me, diet will control what your body comp will look like. If you love to powerlift, powerlift!

Thanks Shawn.

We're really enjoying our new gym and we're both re-committed to getting leaner and not worrying as much about strength.

But......IMA still try to be strong.  :D

Watch the diet, cut back on carbs & lift how you want.

It really is a well run gym chain. Always staff around vacuuming, cleaning, clean change rooms and great variety of equipment. Our Movati has a nice pool as well that I have brought the boys too quite a few times.
I am the same, always have that wanna be strong mentally. Hit the heavy compound first to get your strength fix, than blast the isolations for dat pump!
