I know myself, and I want to get some structure before I get there and forget to follow a plan (I'll usually just do my favourite exercises and neglect certain things if given...

Re: Bode's Vegan Nerd Training Journal

Today's workout: Deadlifts: Slowly closing in on the 315 goal. Any tips on rep ranges I should be hitting to increase my 1RM? I've hit two PB's in the last 2 weeks and I'm feeling like I need a couple of weeks of volume>reps to solidify where I'm at. Any ideas? 5x135lbs 3x205lbs 1x295lbs [PB!] 5x205...

Re: Bode's Vegan Nerd Training Journal

A shoulder workout to commemorate Dwight Howard's move to the Lakers. This season will be VERY interesting :) Also, what do you call it when you superset 3 excercises? 'Super-duper' set? 'Tri-set'?... Hmmm. Tri-set #1: Rotate through 3 exercises with small rest at the end of each circuit. DB Shoulde...

Re: Bode's Vegan Nerd Training Journal

Re: We sure are getting BIG! Obesity Map for the US 1970s-No

MF is so right - America isn't alone in this. I know that before coming to the US from NZ, the general feeling is that "all Americans are so fat". New Zealand, as a country, likes to be blinded by its false clean green image which should somehow apply to all the food our country consumes. ...

Re: Bode's Vegan Nerd Training Journal

No training today :( Got some more ink yesterday from an awesome vegan tattoo artist in LA. His whole process from start to finish is completely vegan - so stoked. Probably another 3 hours of shading to go on this at least! http://distilleryimage5.s3.amazonaws.com/934ed8a2d9f411e18a2e22000a1e8b88_7....

Re: Bode's Vegan Nerd Training Journal

Pretty quiet in the gym today so it was nice to be able to grunt without judgement! Chin-Ups/Pull-Ups: 3 sets of 5 First set was the best form I've ever had so I was stoked about that. Just need to work on keeping that form across more sets. I feel like I'm making slow and steady progress with these...
