Re: Sounding off on vegan lifting. Legit frustrations?

OK, rant incoming. I don't really post anymore because I just don't have the time. Every now and then I poke my head in to see what's up. I am one of those "made gains and then doesn't post anymore" people. I've just posted an update on my log if you want to check it to see where I am at. ...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

Poking my head back in. Still at it. BW still around 220-222#. Still doing the Cube for Strongman program. Not a lot of strongman event training lately as my weekends tend to be busy and don't allow for it as much as I'd like. Did a push-jerk in the rack for 265# back in December 2015, could probabl...

Re: Training for my first 100km mountain race, Jan 2016

Hey MF -

Glad to see you are still at it!

That pic with your kids and dog in the cave - it doesn't look like a dog at all! I didn't think it was one until I read the bit under the photo!

Those are some nice runs you've been doing.

Re: Rossco's journal

Hey Ross - good to see you back. Sorry about your diet issues, but glad you are still at it. I mostly do front squats these days, as I suck at them, but regularly work high bar back squats. No more low-bar powerlifting for me! For me a cut would be easy, I hate eating! I won't be making a 2015 stren...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

Howdy veggies - Been about a year now since I've been on. To be honest as the site activity slowed down so did my interest in checking in all the time. I just poked around and have seen a few familiar faces also returned from the void - nice to hear from you again. I don't think I'll be posting my t...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

So I'm going to do strongman now. I worked out with a local strongman team on Sunday (yesterday) and got my first test on some of the events. I can honestly say I want to do this. Started out with axle clean and press. Much different than how I am used to pressing. Between the thickness of the axle ...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

Still at it. I've been in the gym steadily all summer and my lifts are looking good. I'm just about back to where I was last December, although my deadlifts are better and my bench is slightly lower. My bodyweight is up again, fluctuating between 206 and 209#. My heavy sets at the end of this last 5...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

Hey everyone - I've been busy with personal things and haven't really had the time or motivation to check in here lately. Lots of good stuff lately but I've been out of the gym the majority of the past 3 months. I've lost a little bit of weight and some strength, just started back on my program last...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

It's been a while. On Friday Jan 31st I came down with a what I believe to be the flu, or a very nasty cold at least. I ended up staying home from work sick the entire following week, so needless to say I missed the gym as well. Last week I wasn't feeling up to lifting until Wednesday and hit the gy...
