I'm a software engineer.

I started training with weights seriously about three years ago when my coworkers got me into CrossFit. Before that I'd been seriously into yoga.

I am by no means an expert but I am continually educating myself on fitness, and training myself. My ideal physique is strong and "functional". I want it all: strength, power, speed, and endurance. The only sport I play is tennis.

BW: 180lbs Bodyfat: ~13-14%

Current best lifts as of Dec. 2013(in pounds):

345 back squat (ass to grass)
405 deadlift
145 shoulder press
145 overhead squat
225 squat clean
14 strict pullups

comment What exercises would make up the minimum, complete, general fitness workout?
Are we talking least equipment or least # of movements. Barbell makes a big difference.

I'll check this out the next time I feel it happening. But, I'm not on a low carb diet, so I'm not sure how much it applies to me.

comment General advice for continuing my weight training effectively
Good point Kate. If you make your single goal to get strong, then all of the good things you want will come from that. Strong is the best goal for now because it is a completely objective measurement (how many kg can you lift) that does not lie and cannot be misinterpreted.
