    I don’t see your fluffy belly as a problem. The problem is in you messing around with the programming without any need for it. I got a belly at 5’8’’ and 235 or whatever, but I can bench 120 percent of my body weight and like close grip bench my body weight for set of five. I barely consider myself an intermediate.

    Do you still adding five pounds every workout on press and bench press? Or you are using micro loading?

    I read all the the tips of you guys posted and realize that i being stupid and dumb in not following the program corretly.

    All i have to say is thank you for all the tips guys and when a finish all the novice phase, i will come back and tell my progress again!!
    Good man! I think I can speak for a lot of us that we're looking forward to hearing of great things from you, and perhaps sooner than you expect.

    I switched to micro plates a very long time ago. I add weight to the bench every month or so now. Sometimes I regress too.

    If you're adding ten pounds every workout, you're a novice. If you're adding a half pound every workout, you're a novice.

    Being a novice means being able to add more weight to the same sets and reps 48-72 hours later, and nothing else.
