So I'm currently following the "Men's health hard body plan" I've been doing this for a little while now, and have just bumped from the "beginner workout" to the "intermediate workouts" - adding multiple sets. I've been feeling out the new level by dropping the weight down to allow for higher rep counts and trying to stack a pyramid where I can. I'm a little concerned about the amount of time it's requiring (~2hr/workout) but I'm making progress, albeit slowly.

I'm always happy to get feedback, either positive or negative. I'm getting back into this after a long break from working out and discovered I was doing a lot of things wrong back in the day, so any constructive criticism is appreciated.

Starting Point 9/15/07: 221lbs
Current: 11/15/08: 200.5lbs (goal #1 hit)
Next Goal: 195 by new years
Major Goal: 190 by Feb 24/09 - 30th Bday

I know you're supposed to "count fat not weight" but 190 just feels so much more rewarding than measuring myself with a measuring tape. :)

I'd not that there are some missing workouts the last two weeks. I slacked. I was on the road for work and nothing in the hotel gym was working. I know it's not a good excuse, and that there isn't really such a good thing as a good excuse, but that's what was going through my head. :/
