lol, well there's nothing really special about my diet or workout routines.

With my diet, I just try to keep it healthy and well balanced, nothing complicated. I know what macros I need to hit for the day, and I work my way around that, adjusting the cals for my goals; cut/bulk/maintain. I like to spread my meals out throughout the day, usually 5-6, especially if I'm cutting since I tend to get hungry.

Workouts, I prefer basic split routines hitting each muscle group hard once a week. I've always seen the best strength and growth from doing so, along with different shocking principles tossed it. However, that's just what I prefer. I do change my workouts every few weeks. Whether it's your typical old school body split, upper/lower days, full body, etc... I use them all. For example, before going away on my cruise, my routine looked like this... legs/chest/off/back/shoulders/arms & abs/off. Took the week of my cruise off completely, came back refreshed and have been doing a full body routine 3x a week since then.

I'm closer to 6'2 but not quite there... I would get called out when I said I'm 6'2... so I say 6'1 now.

Went today and hit the bike for 40 minutes. I didn't do any weights because I didn't want to risk a cardiac on my first day. I'm going back later tonight to do some shoulder work - after the crowd thins out.

I'm 5' 11".

I have a hard time getting mass/definition in the center of my chest, just wondering if you (or anyone in this thread) do anything to hit that part of the chest. I've done close grip cables and close grip bench, but still not really happy with my center chest size.

Close grip bench doesn't help that.

I'm starting my cut this week so I'll get more definition soon.

Focus on using the inner part of the chest when you're doing flies.
