Re: Trying to gain weight. Pictures from October til July

Looking good! I think 60-20-20 should work well. Just be patient, and while bulking my tip is not to count calories - just eat as much as you can. If you keep eating a lot every day your stomach will adjust. Also if you do not gain weight, then you might want to switch the food type you are eating -...

Re: Trying to gain weight. Pictures from October til July

In my opinion you eat too much carbs and not enough fats and proteins. Increase the amount of saturated fats such as coconut oil/milk/cream in your diet, this enhances natural testosterone production thus increasing muscle growth. Training sounds excellent, but you need more building blocks from pro...

Re: Vegan calisthenics

You look very healthy and definition is awesome! I'd go with extra calories, for example bulking with dates and figs ect. all day long besides getting enough fats (I think coconut milk is the easiest natural way to get good fats that boost muscle growth) and protein. Otherwise I think you are well b...

Re: tuc's results so far (new "before" pic)

Hay guise! I celebrated my 10th anniversary as a vegan this spring. Been mostly occupied with dancing but this summer once again some lifting as well, since I got a really nice own gym at our workplace in the new Vegekauppa store which we opened in Turku, Finland. Also opened one in Helsinki last mo...

Re: tuc's results so far (new "before" pic)

I don't count calories - I just eat whenever I am hungry and/or have time to eat. I eat huge amount of bananas and then often dates, figs ect. so carb intake is indeed high. I do breakdance and then some pull-ups/chin-ups and push-ups on regular basis. Earlier I used to do ~100 chin-ups per training...

Re: tuc's results so far (new "before" pic)

Another update: high carb diet, mostly raw food with some beans & tofu in addition. Not much weight, but also not that much fat. Feeling great, but I could really use more mass. I am building a new gym to my basement so that should help with muscle building process. Building it is also hard work...

Re: tuc's results so far (new "before" pic)

I'll post this pic here as well, put it already in my training log. I am leaner than ever since I started lifting, so I finally have a decent sixpack. I have been doing a LOT of pull-ups, like hundreds per week. If I pull the measure tape tight, my waist is 26". Inhaled my chest is around 40&qu...

Re: tuc's training and eating topic (back in business!)

+3 years without updates, now training only with own body weight. Still vegan but now even more raw, body weight less than before but also fat % less than before! My normal routine consists of 100 pull-ups (sets of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) and as much pull-ups as I c...

Re: Patrik Baboumian is the European Champion in powerliftin

Patrik is from Germany (currently living in Berlin), but he was born in Iran. By the way, Patrik has been a vegetarian for 6 years now and he has made his best lifts recently (like that 360kg squat vid) as a vegan. He does a lot of promotion for veganism all around Europe and he has also done promot...

Re: Patrik Baboumian is the European Champion in powerliftin

I would also like to note that these lifts were by a huge margin the best lifts any vegan has ever made in a competition even though Patrik did not even feel well. He did a 100kg (= 220lbs) better overall than the current leader of VeganFitness strength board even with the failed squat event (he has...

Patrik Baboumian is the European Champion in powerlifting

Here are the deadlift and bench press lifts from the European Championships in powerlifting: http://www.youtube.com/user/tucfinland/videos Patrik also squatted 300kg, failed 330kg (dropping weights over his head which hurt quite a bit). Patrik won his class and got the best total of all competitors ...

Re: Finding it impossible to bulk cleanly

Use high quality oil (olive oil, cold-pressed coconut oil) ect. in your diet. Oils have 900 kCal per 100ml, you can add 1000 kCal in your diet within seconds. Also, it will make your food taste super good. Especially salads and such. Also, nuts have huge amounts of calories. Para, cashew, macadamia,...
