Re: Figure Competition Prep - Show #2

Just completely revamped my workout plan for the next 6 weeks to try something new. Serious focus on my areas that need improvement (back and shoulders). Will see how it goes. Just finished a full week of this plan, haven't really been tracking weights used yet - mostly just getting used to the new ...

Re: Figure Competition Prep - Show #2

Modified workout yesterday for what weights were available - the gym was crazy busy. Figured out super greens is good mixed with a cup of low sodium tomato juice and a few splashes of frank's red hot w/lime. A cheaper, healthier spicy V8 of sorts. Yum! Sunday 1/6 Workout= shoulders superset Db shoul...

Re: Figure Competition Prep - Show #2

Thanks! I'm actually glad that I'm back on the 'competition' diet schedule - I purposely put on some weight (#1 judge feedback was to add upper-body size) but it's been tough. I've just been hiding from the scale. But, bulking phase mission complete. Going back the other way now. Really, I'd love to...

Re: Journey to my first figure competition (9/29)

Hi all again! I've been so awful at keeping up on logging! Also forgot my password, plus a hundred other excuses...etc. :) Anyway, thought I should at least update. Competed in my first show - it was a blast! Took home 2nd place Novice and 4th Masters Open. I'm picking out my next competition in lat...

Figure Competition Prep - Show #2

Hi there! Longtime forum lurker here, but I rarely post…time to start a log! The fall show for NGA Idaho is here in Boise on September 29. I’m signing up now. And I’ve never really kept a daily training log before so I think this will help keep me on track. The plan is to compete in the novice figur...

Hello again

Hello there everyone! I'm introducing myself for the second time because I've been doing a whole lotta nothing over the winter (besides recovering from injuries inflicted upon myself last year trying to run too many marathons) and now have finally worked up the motivation to get back into shape! I l...

Re: Honey

Why not just avoid it since the alternative is just as good (or better) anyhow? I'm talking about agave nectar...plus it's relatively cheap, readily available (I get mine at Winco of all places) and doesn't have that annoying problem crystallizing that honey does. I'm not making the blanket statemen...

Re: Candy goes from grose to musculous!

I second all of the above - you look great! And anyone who would say otherwise is either insane or just being mean because they are jealous. From those photos, your bum looks fantastic too :)

Re: T-shirts going back up to reg price $19.95 +$4.95 shipping

Do you think you'll ever get the women's shirts in colors? I love mine...it's a super comfy shirt and I wouldn't mind some of those awesome colors (especially green!) that the guys versions come in.

Re: Do you have photos of your VEGAN shorts?

OK...I do happen to have a few pics wearing my vegan shorts (which I LOVE btw). They are kind of far away photos because the background is just so darn funny.

Greetings from the potato state

Hello there everyone! I'm brand new to weightlifting and semi-new to being vegan (just over 2 years now). I live in Boise, ID...but grew up in Portland, OR (where I was vegetarian for about 10 years prior to the switch to vegan). Kind of backwards I suppose, since PDX is a much more veggie-friendly ...
