Re: BLOATING out of nowhere?!!?

Too much tofu possibly? It is made of beans - some people forget that. I don't eat tofu. You might have an allergy to something, so your body may have trouble digesting a certain food. That's my guess anyways. I've heard that gluten can create those symptoms of bloating and pains. I'd also question...

Re: How do you continue to get stronger?

Keep things switched up! Also keeping a log of EVERYTHING is a huge help. Ever since I started working out I wrote everything down in a notebook...how reps felt, if something was difficult, if something felt off, etc. It kept me on top of everything and I could make sure that every day I would try t...

BLOATING out of nowhere?!!?

Okay, so here's the deal. I have been strict vegan for 4 weeks now. The first 3 weeks felt AMAZING. But now over the past couple days, out of nowhere, I've been getting some rather serious bloating and abdominal pain, likely gas pains. I'm wondering if there is a way to get rid of this? Or how long ...

Considering it was a last minute entry and I didn't train for it I was quite happy with that.


Nicely done!!

Re: Soreness after workouts (DOMS)

Depends. I started up Brandon Lilly's Cube method recently so I am still adjusting to the volume, and of course feeling much more soreness than I usually would. It varies but usually every time I switch something up or add in more volume I get more sore. I find that lots of fresh fruits and veggies ...

Re: Your goals for 2013

Good goals ~ your bench and squat seem really disproportionate though? You're only just benching a little over your bodyweight, but that squat is massive ?! Are you male or female? Do you mean me? Lol. If so then yes I am female. I have a really weak bench. :( Nice! That's some serious weight to th...
