I'm 260; my weight loss has hit the skids with the holidays and the kid. I'm hoping to just keep from gaining any, then resume weight loss after the holidays. My waist went up an inch but I've stopped that and now it's holding steady. Weight still fluctates, but of course I'm also adding muscle.
Right now I'm just doing 2 lifts, 3x a week; squats on Tuesday and Sunday and deads on Thursday, 3x8. I alternate OHP and bench press. It's quick, I go all out on those sets and that's it. Some cool down stretching and I'm done and back in. The kid's starting to kinda-sorta settle into a sleep pattern so hopefully by January I will be totally recovered and be able to get more than 5 hours at a stretch. When that happens I plan to add back in dumbbell rows and curls (alternating them) and pull ups and maybe RDLs on squat day and lunges on dead day. It's amazing how much harder a workout is with 1-2 more lifts in it, and right now I just can't recover from it. I'm kind of limited on equipment because I lift at home: squat rack, bar, plates, bench. I also have some old injuries apparently--skull crushers hurt my elbows like a mother, step ups make my left knee swell up like balloon, etc.
I personally have had really good results with 3x8 back in college; I tried the 3x5 from SS for a few months and it didn't work as well for me. Sure I could push heavier weights for reps using 3x5 but it didn't seem to result in as much growth for my maximal strength. With 3x8 I have to drop the weights pretty significantly relative to one rep max (for instance, 145 for OHP for 3x8 vs a 205 max) but I seem to get good results on strength with it.
