Aye, really after you get your basics set up (aka just stick to a general workout plan for a while to get into the practice and build up the structure of your muscle without anything spiffy), then start doing alternating bulks and cuts to build up muscularity and the inherent metabolism, then slicing off any fat you put on in the process (this made so much easier by the bulked muscle). Cycling back and forth along with alternating your workouts will keep your body from plateauing.

The first thing I'd do is as Ratcat suggested, looking through those two main workout articles, and then the other articles that will help you find different ways to torment your body. The best workout in the world, no matter what it is, won't be the best forever, you have to start switching it up. Anything will work for a while until your body adapts too well (probably where you're at now), including just your basic full body sessions. I alternate between endurance lifting phases ( >12 reps/set), hypertrophy phases (8-12 reps), and strength phases (2-6 reps), along with alternating the lifts I use, and the occasional shocking method, though all the workout plans you will find in our article session will have these kinds of things covered.

And of course, we're always here to help with specific recommendations and troubleshooting, as well as alternatives, etc.
