Re: Increased heart rate and pounding and low BP all of a su

I just got the NOW Foods Methylcobalamin tabs and will report if I feel any better. I've stopped drinking coffee and gave myself a 5 days off the gym.

Re: Increased heart rate and pounding and low BP all of a su

I got my B12 tested. It was 331 with referent values 246-991, so I'm closer to the low end and might use some B12 suplements. Do you think I could judt go and get a shot of B12?

Re: Increased heart rate and pounding and low BP all of a su

I eat some nutritional yeast fortified with B12. I also ordered some B12 methylcobalamin tablets. I was going to start a new program on Sunday - two times a week training with a personal trainer but now I think I might need to postpone that and take a break. I can't imagine how I overgrain as I don'...

Increased heart rate and pounding and low BP all of a sudden

Hey guys, I need your advice on some issues I've been having lately. Today I felt quite bad and got my ass to the hospital. They said my BP was 100/90 and heart rate was 100. I felt dizzy and even the cardiologist couldn't figure out what's wrong as my cardiography seemed normal. They suggested I ge...

Re: Vitamin B-12: Where To Get It Cheap And Vegan

I'm thinking of getting NOW B12 Methylcobalamin 1000MG tablete - do you think they will be absorbed better or I should look for another source. I'm thinking of getting B12 injections, but I've heard they were quite painful.

Re: Joints/tendons problems. What to eat?

Hi axlastro, I use orthopedically friendly movements, as well as movements that suit my bodytype. How do you know that? I can see that some movements are not good for me - e.g. leg press really kills my lower back, romanian deadlift too. I have been recommended only isometric excercises for my legs...

Re: Joints/tendons problems. What to eat?

I had my paratohormone checked a year ago, but it was fine. I might check my testosterone as well. Any other hormone that might be related to that?

Joints/tendons problems. What to eat?

Hi folks. I'm 32 and started doing sports quite late - about 3 years ago. I've been going to the gym, running and some swimming. About 16 months ago I had my first serious injury - pulled ligaments on my right knee while running and had to rest for more than a month and never fully recovered (still ...

Re: Ordering Vegan protein in Europe, 2013

pulsin.co.uk - their pea protein is much better than others, although it's a bit more expensive. Other cheap pea proteins are made in China and they taste awful. Stay away from bulk powders - I ordered a 2.5 kg bag and it was awful. They also have hemp protein, which I think is a side product from c...

Re: Full body workouts for bulking

I actually have a knee injury - I pulled some ligaments and bruised my meniscus while running so It kinda makes sense why not weigted squats (I do love that exercise and the feeling I get after doing it). I don't feel any stress to my knees with the leg extensions - it was actually one of the first ...

Re: Full body workouts for bulking

Well, today I discussed those programs with my trainer, but he advised me not to do deadlifts and weighted squats just yet, but to focus on higher reps. The workout we made today was : 1x20 frontal leg extension with 5 kg only - 20 reps each leg, then another 15 for each leg, then 3x15 with 9 kg eac...

Re: Full body workouts for bulking

Here's some more info about me: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=35764 I'm not quite familiar with terminology, so I might say I gain weight eaasily, but mostly fat. As you can see from my above post, I was pretty fat at 98kg, and lost at least 10-15 of it due to a sim...

Re: Full body workouts for bulking

You mentioned losing body fat and bulking in your post so I'm not sure your goals. You can't lose body fat and bulk at the same time. Well - I need to gain about 4-5 kg, which will not all be muscle I guess. Then it's time cut. Problem is, that I don't really gain muscle very easily, but tend to ga...

Re: Full body workouts for bulking

By "PT" are you referring to a personal trainer, or a physical therapist? It's personal trainer, sorry for that. I was actually looking at the The Fast Start A/B Full Body Workout, but forgot to write it down so I went by memory. As of strength - I'm definitely a beginner, as my bench pre...
