This is the fish oil I have.

Dosage: 210 mg DHA, 420 mg EPA, 630 mg - 630mg of Omega-3 Fish oil per cap.

So...how many a day is recommended for lifters. I read Get Built, but I'm having one of those days...please help.

210 + 420 = 630
3000 / 630 = 4.762

So you'll want about 5 servings (I have a feeling the serving size is two capsules) to get at least 3 grams of combined EPA/DHA. So that would be 9 or 10 capsules a day.

I take 10 a day as well and do 4 with breakfast, 3 with lunch, and 3 with dinner

I serving is 1 capsule. It's huge. So would that mean 5 caps a day?

Yup, 5 caps a day would give you 3.15g of combined EPA and DHA:thumbup:
