Re: Leangains Cut - macros advice for a vegan diet

I too have been struggling with the idea of eating low carb and keeping the protein up as well. I'm going to start a "cutting" diet in a few weeks. I'm guessing I will be using a lot of protein supplements. But I will run into the problem of high carb fruit smoothies, or foul tasting, grit...

Re: 5x5: How many exercises a day? Best ones?

Thanks so much rossco! This is what I needed to hear. I think I've got you on adding some reps after I'm more comfortable with the movements. I'm so new, I still can't even do a really good squat yet. I noticed that Deadlifts are only 1x5. I totally over did that today. I did a warmup set and then 5...

No oils (except maybe a little sesame in marinades) I occasionally go more into the 60% range with fats when I try to get 3000 kcal...

5x5: How many exercises a day? Best ones?

I also heard that you shouldn't do isolation stuff while doing a 5x5. I also hear a lot about each individual n...

Long time vegan, just starting out with muscle training.

Hi everyone. I have been training for 6 weeks. I am getting great results so far. I can't wait to get more information about what I should be eating based on my activity level. This is also my first time on a forum of any kind, so if I miss some of the finer etiquette points feel free to drop the ha...
