I admire a lot of the people that post on these forums for the determination that they have in striving to reach there goals. I consider myself to be an above average strength 19 year old college student. I am 5'7 315 and i have a real big problem trying to lose weight no matter what i do. My goal is to someday be around 260 pounds. I have made a lot of improvements on to my body since i began lifting since i was 345 pounds when i started to lift. Gaining strength on excercises has never been a problem for me.I know that if i could get the right advice the work that i put in at the gym will start to show. I have been lifting since i was 16 years old, and im pretty experienced in the differnet types of excercises. if anyone has any advice on the type of program i should try let me know. I am open to all suggestions. I have tried a lot of different programs but any suggetions would help I wil try to post a pictiure as soon as possible.
