@DaveLiepmann - I see that this is too broad. I'll rephrase the question to try to restrict the target audience.

@jp2code - I'm not looking for a flowchart at all; in fact, re-reading my post, I'm not even sure what part of my question made you think I was. I'm looking for information on nutrition as it applies to bodybuilders. I listed "dietary recommendations" as a single bullet point, which could be something as simple as "have this much protein, this many total calories, and this many carbs", not "please take all information on a nutritionist would need to do their job and stick it in a book".

From their about us page: "CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide." So yeah, I'd definitely classify them as a strength/endurance program. I don't do it myself, but hearing your situation, definitely check it out.

Based on your time availability, you may want to check out CrossFit... it's based on a daily, varying 20-minute exercise routine.

comment Difficulty breathing in push-up position
I doubt this type of question will receive a satisfactory answer, as you haven't--and really can't in a forum setting--provided enough information to diagnose the problem. Keep at it, and if it doesn't get easier after a consecutive month, see a doctor. If it really worries you, see a doctor sooner.
