Nice numbers op!

I started powerlifting at age 15 and competed untill i was 20. I had several injuries keeping me away from doing the big 3 in competition. I trained all 3 in the gym and competed in the bench press RAW. After injury after injury i decided enough was enough and started bodybuilding. I ended up being 5'6, 203 @ 9%bf. While training for the pro/am i blew my shoulder out pressing 501 to a 1 board raw.
Best gym lifts to date:
Bench- 475 for 3 ( raw w/ wrist wraps)
squat -TBD but i was repping 405 easy
Pull- 635 ( belt)

Highest competition bench- junior men 181 Steven Lenegar 415 ( raw)

I will resume bodybuilding JAN 1, goals are to stay away from heavy weights and get back to about 200lbs lean.

I have since taken the entire year off, let me tell you it has been AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!Once i get the urge to get back in the gym my goal is 200lbs again @ 7-8% bf. My training will be a 4 day split with 2 days of low impact cardio.

If you need any tips or help feel free to pm me. There are so many different methods, maximal effort is the best one. The conjugated method that louis trains under is dated.

i started training December-May...sorta trained May-August and now I'm back on it.

info
Age: 22
Height: 5'7"
weight: 155lbs

Routine: 3 days a week
1. chest/triceps.
2. shoulders/legs
3. back/bicep

Running and ab workouts every session. 3 reps of 9.

suppliments:
100% whey protein
Jack3d
Cliff bars

I have noticed myself getting much more tone, but I'm not getting "huge" by any means. I just want to gain a bit more mass and tone it up. So we have similar workout plans and similar goals!

ive always liked sharing workout routines and sups that i take with people but a lot of people that i talk to seem to loose interest with the topic anyways

info:
age:23
height:5'7"
weight:180
yrs lifting:6
sups:jacked (pre) protein and post amp pills (post)
size gained since high school:135-180 in 6 yrs
nickname from friends now:no neck hahaha

routine:
consists of a 4 week 4 day cycle
for example:
monday is chest and tri
tuesday is shoulders and traps
wednesday is back and bis
thursday is upper legs and calves
randoms on friday like abs or bike but abs are included after every workout day

then the following week shoulders and traps would be on monday, and chest and tris would be on thursday
thats how i cycle my workout, it works great, i actually acquired it from a muscle and fitness mag a few years back and modified it to what it is now

also each workout i do consists of:
4 sets and 5 reps per exercise and i do 4 exercises for major groups (i.e. chest, shoulders, back....)
and 3 exercises for complimenting body parts (i.e. tris, bis)
and for traps and calves i do two different exercises for each one
doing 4 sets of 15 for one exercise of calves/traps
then another 4 sets of 15 reps same parts different exercise...
gets intense haha...if you want to know more ill go more into detail but thats it for now lol

I havent been working out for too long but i have noticed differences! right now i am using Neurocore pre workout powder, and 100% whey protien for post work out.

I usually pair up shoulders and bi ceps, back and traps, chest and tri ceps,

I incorporate legs and abs into my workouts daily as well.

any questions just ask :)

Wondering what you guys would suggest for me?
I'm a total noob with weigh training I did take 1 college class of it 3 years ago but that pretty much just consisted of me showing up monday/wed/friday and doing 3 sets with 5-6 reps of as much weight as I thought I could handle on each different machine.

Age: 22
Height 6'2"
Weight: 180 (yup i'm skinny and gangly as can be)

Its been realistically about a year since I've been in any sort of shape. last summer I was mountain biking 100-120 miles per week from April through November but then went hit and I couldnt bike, then spring rolled around and I started taking summer classes and got a new job and I just couldnt find time.

now I'm ready to get back into shape! I'd like to bulk up a bit and get some muscle mass/tone

I'm planning to workout Mon/Wed/Fri as those are the only evenings I have a 2-3hr block of time to devote to working out.

if it helps with making suggestions my diet currently looks like this:
Breakfast: yogurt and a granola bar (old habit from playing soccer in HS its just stuck)
Lunch: fast food typically wendys/BK (as of last week I replaced BK with subway and wendys with homemade sandwhiches)
Dinner: Whatever's handy, I'm a meat and taters sort of guy so burgers/steaks/chicken the occasional pizza.
