Re: Basic powerlifting set-up at home; not the typical home

I wouldn't worry too much about going through the floor. Have you been to Walmart lately? A lot of the people there are easily 400-600lbs and you don't hear about them going through their floors. ;)

Re: Ratios

Whether you need those ratio really depends on your goals. I eat 40/40/20 (protein/carb/fat). I have no problem hitting this by eating a lot of tofu and seitan. I eat like that to stay low body fat and build muscle. If you're not trying to be sub 10% body fat then I wouldn't worry too much. Just eat...

Re: Meal ideas, not puddings!

I have a blog i post all the meals i make up onto. I started doing all the cooking for my family since i went vegan so i could fix what i would eat and my dad is usually gone on trips and my mom hates cooking so it works out perfectly. I generally cook one dessert a week but everything else is heal...

Re: I will kill my stomach..

A strong core is important though, everything is attached to your center of body and having a strong core will help you prevent issues down the line. I agree completely, and this will be a by-product of doing every other exercise, especially squats and deadlifts. Focusing on working the abs for the...

Re: I will kill my stomach..

Abs are made in the kitchen. Track your diet macros closely and aim for 40/40/20 protein/carbs/fat. The last thing you want to do is work out your abs and make them bigger. It'll make you look like you have a gut.

Re: Yes another protein question!

There's a fantastic article with a table of the amino acid profiles of vegan foods here: http://veganhealth.org/articles/protein

As stated by Stcalico, Lysine is the hardest amino acid to get as a vegan. That article directly addresses this issue and suggests a number of vegan foods high in Lysine.

Re: creatine...is it a must for us vegans ?

It's so cheap that I think it's worth using. I don't think it's a must though, but every little bit helps. I would suggest really tracking your diet macros closely. They matter a whole lot. You have some nice muscle mass, but may have a hard time leaning out in time for a June comp. Good luck! Keep ...

Re: Difficulty Reaching 1g of Protein per Pound of Body Weig

In my opinion the debate isn't about how much protein we need. When you're trying to be big and lean what matters is what type of calories you're putting into your body. All calories are not created equal, protein calories take more energy to break down than carbs, and carbs take more energy than fa...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

I had gyno issues during puberty (needed to see a doctor because it was so severe), I know first hand that it's quite common. Supplying a source for that one thing does nothing to convince me. Gyno is not fat, gyno is breast tissue, breast tissue is not fat. Fat, on men and women, often builds on th...

Re: stomach excersises

I agree with everything Stcalico said. You can't target fat reduction by working a specific body part. Working out your stomach is going to make the muscles bigger which could make you look like you have a gut (counter productive). In order to lean out your stomach you're going to have to really tra...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

It is not always true that females carry more fat or that the definition/structure of a female at 10% will be similar to a male at 5%. What is true is that breast tissue is mostly fat, so individuals with a lot of breast tissue will have more fat. This includes females and males with medical condit...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

I'm guessing you're a woman, maybe I missed it, but at 33% body fat and seeing bones I think it's a good guess. women will always carry more fat. a woman at 10% looks like a man at 5%. here's a great guide to body fat for women. IMO the mirror is the best judge: http://i.imgur.com/eeBdhdi.jpg Withou...

Re: Difficulty Reaching 1g of Protein per Pound of Body Weig

I understand where you're coming from, BUT I don't know of any omnivorous body builder that doesn't need to suppliment their protein intake. Sure you can be strong and healthy as a vegan without shakes, but if you want to be less than 10% body fat with big muscles... Good luck

Re: Difficulty Reaching 1g of Protein per Pound of Body Weig

granted I'm 225lbs and eat about 4000 calories per day depending on my cardio and workout, I still have no problem taking in 330 grams per day of protein. I get 50-100 of that from shakes depending on what else I eat during the day. I keep my carbs/protein/fat to 40/40/20 and use the shakes to fix t...
