I'm a skinny ***** right now, but short term goal is to lower my weight abit more for summer, then bulk when university starts.

Goal - 5 pounds or so while keeping strength and muscle mass the same. To be done by late June. Trying to lose weight without doing any cardio (I play squash once a week but don't consider it cardio). I also want to get up the 90 pounds dumbell press by Aug 13 (birthday).

Measurements
Arms - 14.5
Chest - 38
Waist - 32.5
Age - 19
Weight - 170
Height - 6'0

Diet:
Total Calories ranging from 2300-2500
Carbs - 260g
Protein - 200g

When you say db lifts, are you stating the total weight for both dumbbells or each dumbbell? Also, I would suggest, since you want to keep your strength the same, while losing fat, upping your protein and lowering your carbs. My protein is around 260 and carbs are at 200 and I am trying to lose 10 pounds while keeping strength and muscle mass.

I been thinking of lowering my carbs too. Any thoughts about amount of fat?

Skipped Wrist, abs workout and went rock-climbing. Lots of cheat meals on weekend, gotta stop this since it is almost June. Did weighted drunches at night.

You have a 38" chest and you db rep 85's? Sheesh...anyway, I lowered my fat intake from 80g to 36g....might be too much, but I'll find out.

That measurement good or bad? I am new to measurements, not sure it it's big or not. I took the mesurement with back and chest completely unflexed. When measuring chest you are supposed to put the tape under your armpits, right?

I agree with Heath, up your protein a bit and lower your carbs. Your fat is in the 20-25% range which is good.

If you take a look at my journal you can see I've raised my protein intake by like 50g+ / day and I've been still losing weight and actually gaining strength in the gym right now!

OOPS, forgot to add I do deadlifts with dumbells. I do 95's for deadlifts with dumbells (no barbell's at current gym), total 190. I also only started doing deadlifts recently, 4 months ago. When I was working out at the University gym I was doing 230 with the barbell's. I find my grip with dumbells is shiitier than with barbells.
