Hello

#1 Postby Daniel Mellor » Tue Nov 22, 2011 12:07 pm

Hello.
My name is Daniel. Vegan for about 7 months now.
Mainly training for MMA but with some vanity measures thrown in.
Into Hardcore Punk and metal. Used to play bass in a band but now am bandless.

Currently I am doing a 3 days a week routine. Need advice on diet though.

Day 1: Lower Body S&C
Day 2: Rest
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Upper Body S&C
Day 5: Rest
Day 6: "Vanity" Day
Day 7: Rest

Strength and Conditioning days are planned out by Brendan Chaplin, coach to a few Rugby clubs. These are purely for my MMA
Vanity days are there for what ever I feel is lacking aesthetic wise. Chest at the minute

In the last 11 months I've dropped from a fat 200lbs to 172lbs. Still got a slight gut and a small chest though.

Long enough intro I think haha.

Great Routine!

There is one thing however that I suggest you should incorporate into your week to help speed your asthetic process up. That is to use a rowing machine.

Do a short 10-15 minute HIIT session on a rowing machine 3 days a week with a day in between each one.

This will shred your body and you will become diced, as long as you are eating clean: i.e. not too much crap like vegan ice cream, sweets etc.

I use the site below for tracking my calories and macros:

http://www.myfitnesspal.com

This is a great FREE site for tracking your food intake, whether you're cutting or bulking, plus it is very easy to use.

And may I also just add, welcome to the community ! :D
