Greetings Fellow Vegans

#1 Postby veganmomma » Wed Dec 27, 2006 2:16 am

My name is veganmomma. I Powerlift and Olympiclift to developing strength for martial arts. I am not currently training in MA because of time, I am a student, money, the only school that taught Krav Maga in Philadelphia moved to a new location, and I will not sign a contract without an exit clause.

My fitness goals are to develope explosive strength for striking power. Eventually I would like to develope a strength routine for stand-up grappling to compliment striking. My weak point is upperbody strength. My strong point is lowerbody strength.

My favorite exercises are Deep Squat, Deadlift, DB Power Clean, DB Power Snatch, DB Push Jerk or Press and Side bends.

Nice to meet you all.

Welcome! Are you male or female? Veganmomma sounds like a female, but your myspace says you're a male, so I'm kinda confused :?

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.
