I'm heading out on tour. Come hangout! (South / West Coast)

I play in a 2 piece screamo / hardcore band called Coma Regalia (https://www.facebook.com/comaregalia) and starting next week we head out on a 16 day West Coast tour. I am vegan and the other member is a vegetarian. If you live in one of these cities it would be cool to hangout and meet some fellow ...

Re: xChrisZx Training Journal - Back On Track

Hey Chris, how have you been? How come we havent seen you post in a while? Work and life are good. But my training and eating has been terrible. And admittedly it's really bumming me out. I did strong lifts for a few weeks but then fell off. This week I am heading down to Austin and San Antonio for...

Re: My Stronglifts 5x5 Journey

No idea why but it seems lately I am just sabotaging myself with the diet.
I need to make some serious changes starting tomorrow morning.

Hit the gym for the start of week 3 and eating right.

Re: My Stronglifts 5x5 Journey

The program suggests you start everything pretty light (45lbs) but I started a little bit heaving Here's my past two weeks of workouts.

My Stronglifts 5x5 Journey

Just finished week 2 of the Stronglifts 5x5 program. Still trying to get my diet in check and need to add in some cardio on non lifting days but the program has been going pretty well so far. I did the first 3 weeks at the end of last month / beginning of this month but then I went on tour and had z...

Re: Trueprotein.com vs Vega Sport Performance Protein

I have been doing the 70% pea / 30% rice mix for a couple of years now. To the point where I order 16 pounds to get the extra 5% off.

Vega is awesome and I love it but TP is just so much cheaper.

Pretty sure this dude is not vegan or even vegetarian anymore.
On his facebook he posts pictures of his meals with eggs and meat from Chipotle.

xChrisZx - 2013 Year Of the Tri

Alright... I am starting a new log here. This week I started my 12 week Sprint Triathlon training program. I have to adjust the schedule in the book because the only days I have access to a pool are Monday and Wednesday nights. But this is what my week looked like so far. Sunday (run) - 25 minute ru...

Re: Triathlon training

I got the Triathlon Training Bible when I first started and it wasn't really helpful in getting going on training as it doesn't have workouts or sample training plans. That said it does have a lot of great information but it didn't really become practical until a year or so into racing when I had s...

Re: Triathlon training

I think this book is a good starting point it covers all distances and any level. It also has a basic weight lifting plan you can follow. I have used it for a starting point in planning my season and just modify as needed but for most people it will cover just about anything you would want to do. h...

Re: Triathlon training

I'll try and find something for you bro, I did triathlons for many years and my wifes' cousin is ranked #1 in the world at triathlon. Is it Olympic distance or a sprint one? How long have you got to get ready and what fitness base are you at right now? Cheers MF. I am not doing a Sprint Tri (actual...
