Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

Hey all, Car accident really screwed with me more mentally and financially than anything. I felt some decent whiplash that kept me down for a bit, but it really just screwed with my head, and was the icing on the cake to an already very stressful time in my life. Working out was one of the only thin...

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

Got in a car accident on the way to the gym yesterday. Leg day skipped. Hopefully I can get a car soon enough to stay consistent.

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

11/6 Felt extremely frustrated at the gym today. Too many talking heads chatting around me, not acknowledging personal space. A guys ass was damn near in my face standing over my bench when I was trying to do flyes. Some woman came over to the strength training area for no other reason, it seemed, o...

I make my protein shake when I make my pre-workout meal, and I do drink some of it beforehand but the majority right after my workout.

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

Ladies love the hair, Dylan! Thanks though, I've always felt like a fit kid. I was shocked to find out how little I weighed when I stepped on a scale a few weeks ago. I can only go up from here! Another leg day down, another week of anguish commences for every staircase I encounter. Made some leaps ...

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

Thanks esqinchi for the reinforcement about what I'm doing. Very helpful to hear someone thinks I'm on the right track. I just hopped on the scale in my skippies and I'm up a couple pounds! I feel stronger in my back and arms already. Kind of starting to see results too! 11/1: http://i44.tinypic.com...

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

Hey esqinchi, thanks for stopping by! My gym doesn't have that machine, and I work out at Planet Fitness which has secured barbells on the machines (I can't take them off if I wanted to). I could probably modify the machine for tricep pulldown's though, there's a setting where you can pull it from t...

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

10/30 Push Drank Sun Warrior sample packet of Vanilla today because I ran out of my PlantFusion and it was repulsive. Never again. Regardless, I had a big meal of tofu (32g/protein), white rice and spinach before working out. Lifted heavier this week, for sure. 1. Bench Press (barbell): 50lbs, 60lbs...

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

I'll get right on it and log tonight's workout. 10/28 Pull (back and biceps). I felt low confidence on my way to the gym tonight. I think working out in the evening/night throws me off. I took a nap after class today too, which could've thrown off my mood/energy. Pull 1. Pulldowns (front, wide-grip)...

Re: jsalem978's Training Journal

I'm still going! Just haven't gotten around to logging my stuff. Sat 10/26: Leg day. All exercises are x10, x8, x6 1. Squats: 10x50lbs, 8x60lbs, 6x70lbs I had never done a squat before in my life, so this was a feeler outer. Felt good! I could've definitely done more but didn't want to burn myself o...

Excellent progress! Keep it up, you're doing awesome. Killer flower of life tat as well! I've been thinking of getting some sacred geometry ink as well. Very profound stuff.

PlantFusion protein shake with almond milk (this time I added cacao powder and a sprinkle of EKZ-Krealkaline I had sitting around. not sure how I feel about that stuff) Push: all ...

Re: best vegan protein powders?

I just got through a tub of PlantFusion, chocolate. I'm happy with it, although I might switch it up. Protein content per serving isn't as high as i'd like, but it takes great in it's simplest form with just some almond milk. Good price point too, which was important for me (broke college kid here!)
