What muscle groups do you guys do on the same days? Can someone (or multiple) post their "schedule"?

No more for another few months.

Chest, triceps, shoulders, "abs."
Back, biceps, and "abs."
Cardio(lots of core workout.)
Legs, and "abs."

In between each workout I do a minute of ab exercises, so 7-8 workouts = 7-8 ab exercises.

I take a 90 second break in between my workouts so the last 30 seconds I get a breather.

Figz, you might want to consider having a day of going all out on your abs, and really focusing on them... Rather than just kind of doing a little each day and not being able to full work them out because they're always fatigued from previous days, even if just a little bit.

I used to do abs every day after each workout, but switched to doing abs hard twice a week and had much better results.

I usually do
Chest
Legs/shoulders/abs
Biceps/triceps
Back/abs
Rest
Repeat

I tried doing tricep/chest together and back with biceps since that is most common, but I seemed to have better results this way

Abs on a skinny dude are about as useful as big breasts on a fat chick.

Abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym.

I will once my semester ends and I have more time. I'm trying to condense my exercises in 4 days. I'm taking 7 classes.

Free weights, but will be trying machine weights for cable flys, cable raises, and cable cross overs in a couple weeks.

Holy ****.

It is the end of another year, and I don't make resolutions since I never keep them, but I am elated that I feel and look how I have always wanted to.

Confident and capable.

Going on 36 and in the best shape of my life. May you all reach your fitness goals in 2013.

Mine for the next six months:

Back levers
Front levers
Pistol squats

And to spend more time working out outdoors in city parks.

I don't make reso goals either, but it just so happens that this year I will hit my ideal weight goal as well as look fan****ingtastic in the summer.

When I first started this all I wanted was to look good with a t-shirt on. I've accomplished that, I now want to look good with a summer tank top, which puts a lot of stress on my upper body (one area, along with my stomach that needs work.) I've got 5-6 months to cut, and build my muscles and be able to pull it off. I will get there.

Good luck to you to good sir.

Also don't set resolutions, but going on a cruise in April... and over the last 15-18 months initially dropped about 75 pounds. After I got rid of all that fat was when I started lifting more seriously, and have since gained about 15-20 pounds, which I'm more than fine with. Now I'd just like to improve my abs, so using the resolution thing as a reminder for that, and aiming to see some vast improvements in time for a cruise I'm going on in April. Definitely will have to take some before after pics, as looking at numbers on a scale are happily meaningless these days.

Doing my first pre-diet practice meal.

Grilling a lean cut of beef, a side of lettuce and cucumbers, and to add a tiny bit of variety? A pickle spear.

.... never said I was a creative cook....

So very very happy. I had been getting headaches every time I lifted for the past couple weeks and it wasn't going away. I looked it up when they first started happening and read that it was likely a problem with my breathing. I paid close attention to my breathing the next time I lifted, but it didn't help. Finally decided to dig a little deeper online and found that tightness in the lower back can cause these headaches, so I stretched out my lower back and voila, no more headaches.

So yeah...finished my first session in what seems like forever with no throbbing headaches and nausea today. Feels good man.

I try to do 5 muscle groups in 5 days but when forced to cut corners I'll do back/biceps together and chest/triceps.

Day 1: Chest, biceps, calves, abs
Day 2: Back (no deads), shoulders
Day 3: Legs, deadlifts, triceps, abs, calves
Repeat
I usually work out 4-5 days a week when I'm bulking. No more then 3 days in a row though its a heavy routine.

SLDL (not quad)
Extensions
Leg Press


Deads day is something like:
Jefferson squat
DL
Curls
Kickbacks
DB lunges

Well it's the new year and for the first time in a long time, my goal for the year is not to lose weight. Well, to be specific, that's not my primary goal - I achieved a lot of that in 2012 (down 31 pounds from January 2012 to December 2012). Now I want to work on my fitness level and maintain the eating habits I established last year, and I'm sure that focusing on that will lead to further weight loss.

Anyways, just wanted to get that written down somewhere, maybe to stay accountable, who knows really. Best of luck to everyone else on their health-related (and otherwise) goals this year!

Ordered pizza again, but only had 4 slices instead of 5.

There's nothing in the house, no chicken, no cheese, no lettuce, etc.

Going to start buying steamers + healthy choice till the end of the semester with the chicken breasts + quinoa/w.e. thrown into my meals.

Oh and RayP I bought myself an iron pan today.

It was $20 at Walmart here. It was rather small, but big enough to fit in 2 chicken breasts comfortably.

Pretty stoked, will be making so much **** from now on.

A true iron skillet?

If so make sure to season it properly and it will give you years of enjoyment for your taste buds.
