well, my weight is 96,4kg at the moment, and my goal is to lose about 1kg each week, for the next 16-18 weeks. i still have to create a concrete meal plan, but as usual the first step for me is to cut all bad food out of my diet. over the weeks and month i'm gonna lower my calories from time to time, depending on my fat loss...
for the beginning there'll be no cardio at all, and if everything works fine, i won't do any cardio up to my competition. cardio will only be added if really necessary in the last weeks. so it's all about weight training and diet for me.
this was my workout for today:

seated calf raise: 20kg x 10

leg press (narrow leg position): 170kg x 10

leg press (wide leg position): 170kg x 9

good mornings (straight leg position): 45kg x 9

seated one leg curl: 25kg x 9

chin ups (overhand grip): bodyweight (96kg) x 8

pull ups (close reverse grip): bodyweight (96kg) x 9

barbell bent over row: 55kg x 11

dumbbell bicep curls: 17,5kg x 11

barbell bench press: 100kg x 8

barbell incline bench press: 90kg x 8

weighted dips: bodyweight (96kg) + 30kg x 8

standing barbell press behind the neck: 50kg x 10

tricep dumbbell kickbacks: 10kg x 10

Thx mate! Actually i do total body workouts for years and years now... the first few years of my training career i did the usual split training. It worked pretty well for me and i built up a lot of muscle mass, but at some point i tried total body workouts and felt quite good with it...so i never really came back to split training.
I try to train three times a week, but i always listen to my body concerning recovery...

You think my bench press is good?? I think it could be better. But i never was a very good bench presser.
At the moment i try to build up some strength in my legs again. I had a really bad injury in july 2011, that almost destroyed my knee. I think it will never be 100% again, but i do my best to build it up again.

i did whole body routines a few years ago, really enjoyed them..... yeah your bench press is good, did i read on your other post you weigh 85kg? if so 8 reps of 100kg is definately good in my book.

good luck with the knee, ive had a few injuries in the past and understand how much of a nightmare it can be!

At the moment i'm quite fat with my 96kg...very off-season. For the contest it'll probably be less than 80kg...

The thing is: never had a real injury from bodybuilding! But once i played football...and what happened? I fucked up my knee... damn... -.-
And i've got some probs with my lower back at the moment...sucks!
