I've hit the wall and need some suggestions.

I began lifting about 4 months ago. I've had great results. Added 15 lbs. of mainly muscle in 3 months using the body for life 3 day a week workout. Upper body one day, lower two days later. 2 excercises per major body part. When I began lifting I improved my eating habits. Take a supplement shake at 3 p.m. and have some form of protein post workout in the evening, either myoplex or can of tuna. Jus started taking creatine 2x daily as well. Have been on Cytovol the entire time but I'm running out and have bought all that I have been taking at 1/4 of the price on sale. Probably not going to pay $70 for a month supply.

I have the encylopedia of bodybuilding which I consult often. My initial thoughts are to increase protein intake, begin a diff. split where I am working out 5 days a week instead of 3 and hit muscle groups with more exercises.

My philosophy is eat and lift iron. I have a free weights and smith machine at home. I have a good workout partner.

Any suggestions.
