THis is a great idea. It just looks like so much fucking work though. I've been working out like crazy and can't seem to go from 175 to 180. I'm 5'11, 37 w/ small bone structure. I guess i'm just a skinny dude but I do have a little bit of a gut that i can't seem to get rid of.
When I finish the whole outline I'll be breaking it into pieces and going through each piece in detail
You can pick and choose what you want to focus on for yourself. There will be some things that are more important than others based on each person's overall condition, goals, abilities, attitude, dedication......
Then it will just be start out slow and work your way up on the things you aren't doing. It will get much easier to maintain over time. Then you can add new things on top of what you're doing at that point
Building mass is not always a good thing as it is much harder to maintain as you get older (ie Arnold below)
My preference is to build a good base with some bulk but focus much more on definition
