Can't seem to stick the landing

So, I haven't eaten any meat for some time, but I'm still having trouble with milk and egg products. Not milk and eggs themselves, not any other animal products, just that. It's frustrating the hell out of me. I notice these falterings tend to come around the time I also fall off the diet bandwagon....

Protein Pairing?

So, this might be a dumb question but I'm going to ask either way: Do I need to pair protein in order for it to "matter" in my overall protein count?

Vegan Moment

I like with my rather large, omnivorous family which is difficult because they believe it's man's God-given right and duty to eat animals. I'm not here to debate religion, but I don't agree with them. Anyways, I had an interesting moment the other night where, for the first time, I saw meat in the f...

Thoughts on moving out of the USA

As the title says, I'm thinking about moving out of the USA. Trouble is, I'm not exactly rich. I work a minimum wage, entry level job in a gym with only 2 semesters of college under my belt but I feel like I've run my course with the US. I've been to only 3 other countries in my lifetime (Canada, Ho...

Most Amazing Vegan Transformation

Just curious as to the most impressive vegan muscle gains you've ever seen. Most of the transformations I see are usually just fat loss so I was kind of curious to see a muscle-building transformation.

Re: Is it possible to tone your muscles and gain mass

I also tell them "I promise you that you won't wake up one morning, look in the mirror, and say....OH NO...I'm way too big!" :wink: It ain't that easy. Seriously. It takes a LOT of planning and consideration. If it were THAT easy to gain mass, don't you think every 19 year old bro would l...

Re: Young_Mike's Challenge Blog

Thanks, guys. Yeah, I have goals written out. Call me vain, but they're all aesthetic because I don't really care so much about how much I can lift so much as what I look like. For right now, goal #1 is, as I said before, about lowering my body fat so I can see my abs. Again, vain but desirable enou...

Re: Young_Mike's Challenge Blog

Thanks, sir. I wish I had progress photos or something but considering it's only been like a day and half or so...haha. Yesterday's session was great and I'm feeling the soreness a bit today. Everything is on track at the moment, I guess I'm just a little bummed out because I've been thinking a lot ...

Re: Is it possible to tone your muscles and gain mass

Focus on the contraction itself and keeping your muscles tense. Yes, it is important to pick a weight that is heavy and challenging for you, but if your form is off and you're essentially swinging the weight into position using momentum and your whole body, you're not going to place enough tension o...

Nice job, you can especially see the difference in your legs and midsection. Cool ink, BTW.

Young_Mike's Challenge Blog

Just wanted a place on here to write down my thoughts. Basically, I turn 22 in mid/lateish September and I want body fat low enough to see my abs for my birthday. Why not give myself the gift of abs? I have the tools I need and I work a gym so I might as well take advantage of that free membership a...

It's one of the reasons I went vegan: When you REALLY think about it, animal products are GROSS.
