Couple pics, need a critque.
Well I've been back to lifting for about 2 months following a 5 month stagnant period from breaking my left leg in 5 places in a dirtbiking accident. Well I've been trying to lose my fat and add muscle and it has worked pretty well so far. I'm 6' 1" and 180lbs. I have no idea what my other measurements are because I haven't taken them in a long time.
I've been doing 40-45 min of cardio 5 days a week and lifting 4 days a week. Getting between 1.5 and 2g's of protein per lb of body weight, and eating clean.
Any constructive comments are welcome, but keep in mind my body (and mind) really went to $hit while I was laid up. I really wish I had some before pics, but I didn't think to take any at the time. And these were taken on a whim and the digital camera I used is a POS and they are a little blury, but I think you can get the idea. I plan on posting better ones with some back shots in a while anyway.
PS Please give a guess at my bf % as I am curious what everyone thinks.

That raises another concern of mine...My left leg is much skinnier then my right now. Should I start doing leg ext. and curls one leg at a time to even them out? (Yes I do squats) And since I can do much more weight with my right should I keep it at the same pace as my left? I want my body as symetrical as possible but at the same time I don't want to hinder the growth of the same body part on the opposite side of my body. The same goes for my left forearm and right forearm (broke the left ulna and radius snowboarding a couple years ago, it didn't heal properly after 3 months and the radius was rebroken and I was in a cast for another 3 months). Seems like I'm always getting hurt
As always, any tips or tricks you guys have are appreciated!

Whats your routine look like for your chest ? Arms are deffinatly lokkin sharp as for doin alternate excersises for evening out lagged parts im not sure. IMO you might wanna look at your form . If your left arm gives out before your right durring barbell curls make sure you dont cheat with your back to get the wieght up etc... things like that make the difference.

Flat bench: 12-10-8-6
Inc DB Press: 12-10-8-6
Peck Deck: 12-12-12
I don't like going too heavy on Fly's or the peck deck because joints start popping and making funny noises so thats why I keep the reps higher on those. And I've tried 5 sets of 5 reps, and it honestly does nothing for my chest. It worked well on my bi's and back, but I haven't done anything as low as 5 rep sets in a long time. Maybe I'll give them a shot again.
Any advice Rage?

My chest routine looks like this:
Flat Bench: 8-6-5-5
Incline Bench: 8-6-5-5
Weighted Dips: 10-8-8-6 (45lb Weight)
Cable Crosses Down: 12-10-10-8 (Give a nice stretch)
Calbe Crosses Up: 12-10-10-8
I switch it up all the time.
Sometimes i start off with Incline and go heavy! Then i go to flat bench and go light! Then i follow the rest of my chest routine.
Sometimes i use all dumbells, for everything. Gives nice control and stretch, really concentrate of muscle and Form!
Sometime i throw Decline in there & Fly's. Both incline & flat bench Fly's.

ima big fan of hevay weight and low reps on incline db's and flat barbell
Judging from your frame i think 12 reps is too much if you wanna pack on size. Id say no more then 8. Just my .02

Need more chest bro.. Arms look good.

Any suggestions on how I could set it up and not affect my other workouts? Rage, should I do 6-8 rep sets on day one and 10-12 on day two. Would working both slow and fast twitch fibers help or would I be better off sticking to low reps on both days?
Thanks again guys, I need the advice.
