13. Okay, so
You'll be 35 in 5 months, am I reading that right? That means that you want to gain 9 pounds of muscle in 5 months. Also, if you start dropping fat to the tune of 8 pounds, you'd be at gaining 17 pounds of muscle in five months. Can't be done. Okay, it can, but only if you like the idea of using a HUGE amount of very illegal steroids, live in the gym (2 full workouts a day) and up your protein intake to 260-275 g/day.

Now, if the goal was to be ??? weight you wind up being, well-muscled and toned, with a nice set of abs, vascularity...ripped, etc, I'd say that you really need to bump some cardio all 5 days, for starters.

Last question...your gym routine. When you lift, are you circuit training or isolating muscle groups? If the latter, what's your 5-day breakdown?

You certainly are dedicated, which is the biggest hurdle there is...
