Re: What is the deal with creatine??

Creapure branded creatine is vegan. The pure powder form is the most versatile and cost effective. Works well in my opinion

Re: Joel's training journal

Had a training session this morning, first proper session in nearly a week. Did some unnecessary powerlifting stuff (band deadlifts) with a mate of mine and ended up injuring my neck and tearing the callouses off one of my hands. Stupid but painful. Felt good to train properly this morning, have jus...

Re: Joel's training journal

Trained this morning, have been feeling pretty strong considering I'm dieting and losing weight. Have decided I will compete in the bodybuilding shows in April and May. Weighed in at 79kg this morning, lightest I have been in a long time. Workout this morning - Light squats, deadlifts and high pulls...

Re: competition color

I just use the Pro Tan stuff. There's really not much else around where I'm from and most others have lanolin and stuff so I stay away. Atleast pro tan doesn't test on animals but their quick bronze stuff is not vegan friendly. I just use the overnight competition colour and put on about 4 or 5 coat...

Re: Joel's training journal

I agree the warming up and the stretching helps it is just hard to make yourself do it consistently. Agreed. I think it is paying off now, I'm getting less sore and feeling pretty good. Trained this morning, the weekend was a bit hectic with family stuff so didn't get to fit in all my training. Had...

Re: GENr8

I've tried it before, from a different company before the patent was bought by the makers' of Genr8.
It's just barley starch, nothing really special about it and I can't say I noticed too much from it.

Re: Joel's training journal

Joel- your meals dont look very big... are you eating large or smaller portions? My meals are not all that big, I eat about 150-175g serves of tofu/tempeh or whatever. Fats make up a lot of my calories. I'm really not all that active to justify eating too much more protein though. It all seems to w...

Re: Aminos

Does anyone know if BCAA's (Branch Chained Amino Acids) are animal derived? BSN brand specifically I guess... I know some brands use animal derived aminos and others use plant derived. It's best to ask the individual companies to be safe. I don't know about BSN, looking at some of their products it...

Re: Can squatting past parallel be bad on the knees?

I think it is a pretty natural position for the body to be in. Just make sure you knees track out over your toes.


Agreed.

Re: Joel's training journal

yeah o-lifts! nice! I think they will work out great for you. Just watch your back on those romanian deadlifts! Yeah I figured I would give them more of a go, I can't really do too much powerlifting stuff at the moment (don't know if I really want to really focus on it too much anyway) and weightli...
