My old work out is wieght lifting everyday but I take to much energy. I am a wide mucleuar guy ( no not fat )but before school, I just want to lose a few pounds.

My new plan is to foget about weight lifting for 3 weeks and start more on my skills and endurence. Much like a Muay Thai Schools.

Do you think I should do that or stick with weight lifting, I mean, I am already the buffest dude in school.

Well, my advice would be to continue with the weight training, just do less... say if you normally do 150 pushups, lower it to 100, 200 reps of curling that weight, do 125 instead, etc. etc. Just lower the ammount you do, that way you can keep a good amount of the muscle you have... and do all the running and endurance training you said to help with any remaining fat and your endurance.

If you don't lose weight, remember the good high protein/low carb diet, and then lower the weights a bit more... Loosing weight you want to lose any fat left, not lose the muscle

Change your workout to more of a powerlifting regiment.. I only spend about 20 minutes weight training every 2 or 3 days. I only do compound exercises and I never do more than 3 sets at 6-8 reps. Some people say that I don't do enough.. but at 5'2" tall and bench-pressing 400# (180lbs is my bodyweight), I think I'm doing the right thing.

Anyway.. go heavy, go hard and do only 3 sets at most. The more advanced you get, the less sets you need to do, because your mind-body link will allow you to properly stimulate your muscles to grow. You just want to stimulate your muscles, not tear them up.

Here is all you ever need to do.
Chest- 3 sets of presses
Back- 3 sets of a rowing type motion
Legs- 3 sets of squats, hack squats or leg presses
Shoulders- 3 sets of presses
Abs- 3 sets of crunches

All of your smaller muscles will be stimulated doing just these few exercises, you'll be stronger, and look better too. Don't worry about curls, calf raises or other tiny muscle group exercises. Also, you won't be so tired all the time.

No way they are all wrong. If you wanna lose weight do 2 or 3 muscles per workout. Do 4 exercises per muscle . Do 4 sets with a weight that you can start with 12 reps for each exercise. You don't powerlift to lose weight and you shouldn't do 200 reps either.

example. here is one day's workout.
-standing bicep curl with ez curl bar 4 sets of 12 reps.
-standing dumbel curl 4 sets of 12 reps
-seated isolated dumbel curl 4 sets of 12 reps
-cable curl 4 sets of 12 reps

then pick 4 excercises for triceps and back and do 4 sets of 12 for each

that will help you tone and get definition

Oh and when school starts talk to one of the sports coaches they'll hook u up with a total routine. And make you give yourself at least 2 rest days a week when you don't lift so your muscles can rebuild.
