Thanks xjohanx! I'll be taking even more soon! :boxer: And talking about the EU, remember that EU drives REALLY strong climate and environmental policy in the whole EU, as well as production animal control. EU is good for nature and animals. They even banned Brazilian beef because there aren't standards which prove that animals aren't tortured.

I'm your man, well we still lack Sweden when it comes to animal rights and vegetarianism... but anyway, I'm really glad we have a STRONG party which is both sensible and pro-vegetarian as well as environmentally ahead others! And by voting for the Greens here in Finland you can make a difference in politics and you don't have to choose from 2 parties which are both f'd up. ;)

Mon 3rd November

2h 15min bboying, after that just some small things since I'm still recovering from Saturday's squatting (dunno why :shock: )

- Bench press, barbell: warm up 5 @ 62kg, then 1 @ 92kg -> felt heavy, no 100kg today -> 8 + 6 + 7 @ 76kg (weak)
- Standing tricep extensions, dumbbell: warm up 13 @ 20,4kg, then 7 + 10 + 10 @ 25,4kg (56lbs)

Yes but the EU is also making it harder for immigrants to come here.
On a side note, the Left party of Sweden has a vegan called Jens Holm in the EU parlament. He's really cool when it comes to enviromental and animal rights issues. If it weren't for him I'd probably be voting for the green party in the next EU parlament election. You know a little Swedish so check out his site http://jensholm.se/. He is probably the only honest politician I've ever seen and met. Maybe you in the future :wink:

He is a great guy. I've met him two times. He's a lot into enviromental issues and he was one fo the first to birng up the animal industrys effect on the climate change about 5-6 years ago. Way before the UN report came out.

BTW, what's your weight?
Plus I really need to go to Finland and work out with you. I'm gonna show you what hardcore means!

Wed 5th November

Super fitness day: 1h 45 bboying, 30mins pause (with some Clif Builder's from VeganEssentials!)

and

1h 30min more acrobatics. I managed to do aerial (cartwheel without hands) pretty well.

Thu 6th November

1h 30mins bboying training. I got great tips from local bboys and I managed to do aerial on hard floor.

Afterwards I was all torn up so I kept 2 days off training in order to recover properly.

Sun 9th November

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 8 + 6 + 6 @ 82kg (I went for 9th rep on 1st set and 7th rep on 2nd set but lolfailed in both and it wasn't fun since I'm lifting alone.)
- Standing press behind neck, curl bar: 10 + 10 + 11 @ 40kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 10 + 10 + 11 + 10 @ 42,5kg
- Dips: 15 + 13 + 12 @ bw

I don't know my weight since our scale ran out of batteries. I'm still light, don't worry! ;) And be on your way already, it's really easy to come here!

I've been very busy this week, soon I'll have a lot more time to work out. Some headache because of stress has prevented weight lifting.

Mon 10th November

2h 15min bboying

Wed 12th November

1h 15min bboying, over 2h acrobatics. Also some bench press and a set of 12 chin ups

Sat 15th November

- Deadlift, barbell: warm up @ 92kg, then 1 @ 130kg, f @ 180kg, f @ 180kg, f @ 176,4kg :evil: (well at least I got 180kg a couple of inches up from the floor but WEAK STUFF!) I HATE THE LETTER F!!!
- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 52kg, then 5 + 5 + 5 @ 84kg (weak :? )
- Dips: 10 + 8 + 10 @ bw + 10kg (first time in my life with extra weight!)
- Bent-over rows, barbell: 12 + 12 + 10 @ 80kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 12 + 13 + 8 @ 40KG

I'm really disappointed because of the deadlift. I guess it was psychological, bad day or something.

I'm TRYING! Next month I have LOADS of time to bulk & train! It's just temporary.

Today really fast train, just pump up for party clothing (we have a 90's party with proper clothing and music, no sleeves in my 90's shirt which means I have to get a good pump to look good. :oops:

- Bicep curls, barbell: 20 + 18 + 12 @ 26kg
- Standing Shoulder press, behind neck, barbell: 20 + 14 + 11 @ 26kg

I feel kinda stupid. :mrgreen:

Mon 24th November

2h 15mins bboying. Not very hard this time since.

Wed 26th November

1h 45mins bboying.

Thu 27th November

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 1 @ 82kg and I realized that I have pain in my right shoulder. Starting well :x
- Deep squats, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 6 + 6 @ 82kg
- Deadlifts, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 1 + 7 + 6 @ 122kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 5 x 10 @ 40kg :mrgreen:

I'll pump my chest & triceps when my shoulder is fine. Shouldn't take long, it's just a bit sore from sleeping in a bad position.

:lachmal: :boxer: :bodybuilding:

THAT'S AWESOME! You just TOTALLY made my day! I'm grinning so much it hurts! :lachmal: Oh man!

I've also tried to dance while working out but with little success so far. It's not that easy.

HCPG, my typical day:

Breakfast: a couple of breads with loads of vegan margarine with loads of Omega 3
Lunch: a big bowl of salad, a couple of potatoes, huge load of beans/lentils/ect, bread + margarine
Snack: during the day: 100-150g nuts
Dinner: Whole grain pasta, soy in various forms, chick peas, lentils, beans or something like that.
After workout: soy protein drink with carbs & creatine
Evening snack: leftovers from dinner, fruits, bread, muesli ect.

My shoulder still hurts but I try to take it easy:

Sat 29th November

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 10 + 10 + 10 @ 66kg (disturbing to do with such low weights! but I want to wait for my shoulder to heal before pushing it hard)
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 10 + 10 + 8 @ 42,4kg (93,5 lbs)

Zomg that was a disco training at it's worst. I can't do most moves at all because of my stupid shoulder. :evil:
