In the past 6 weeks i've been travelling and so didn't follow any program :roll:
I trained between 2 and 4 times per week, and whole body workouts every time.

I practiced my power cleans a bit and did a PB of 200lbs. Still quite weak, but getting better. Thanks to wannalift for showing me the knack of doing hang cleans, i will continue to practice on that, i'm sure it'll help my power cleans, too :D

I also worked on the depth of my squat. I use less weight and do full ROM now, feels much better :) Thanks to the Edinburgh crew for that :)
To keep my body from forgetting the heavy weights i do rack lockouts or quarter squats with a half-decent load now and then. I mainly like the psychological benefits :lol:


Soon i'll start a new HST cycle. I just have to figure out when to do the 10-14 days deconditioning before :roll:

The biggest problem i have with HST, is that you're limited in the number of exercises :(

The exercises for the cycle will include:
Squats
Bench press
Barbell row, overhand grip
Chin-ups (underhand grip)
Barbell press
Deadlift
Calf raises
Crunches

I'm contemplating on these exercises, maybe some with only one workset instead of two, to keep the total volume under control:

Close grip bench
Incline bench curls
Upright rows
Dips

Definitely no power cleans and front squats :cry:

We were in Juarez this sunday. :)
I got two new pair of glasses quite cheap and a sunburn for free! :D

We only went there to get my new glasses :roll:
We also walked around for ~3hours and had a drink in a Mexican bar.
I thought it's a very touristy place, with lots of opticians, dentists and pharmacies ;)

What trick? :?

I have figured out my training weights. They're pathetic, especially for the bench... :(
Anyways, a princess gotta do what a princess gotta do!


Weights (15/10/5RM in kg):

Squat: 100/112.5/125
Bench: 77.5/85/95
Barbell row (overhand): 80/92.5/105
Barbell press: 40/47.5/55
Chin-ups: 0/15/35
Deadlift: 125/140/155
CGBP: 60/70/82.5
Incline bench dumbell curls: 14/18/22
Dips: 17.5/27.5/37.5

I'll continue my SD and only do nunchakus and swimming for the next week. On monday, 25th, i'll start my cycle with 60% :D
Looking forward to that already ;)
Would love to do some cleans today... :?

I'll be on vacation for a week and probably not able to post. See you all next week! :)

@ Crystal's tourist comments: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :P

Daywalker, look over your shoulder man..........look all the way back to the West Coast of the United States. There is a vegan bodybuilder who is training hard and eating like an animal. Focus your eyes on those of us who are aiming at you. You've got a target on you now that you are the #1 top dogg in Vegan Bodybuilding.

We're coming for you my friend.

Train hard and eat plenty in Edinburgh and maybe we'll have a showdown over there sometime :) 8)

What's all this HST talk? You know we never go over 5 reps/2 sets, and take 10 minute breaks between sets don't you? :wink:

you should watch a movie between sets...it'll make sure you get much more edequate rest in...I suggest Lord of the Rings...but when you wanna do circuit training watch something around 90minutes in between sets

Back from my vacation and i ended the SD today 8)

Actually, tomorrow should have been day 1 of the cycle, but i couldn't wait another day, so i cheated a little and started today with day 0 ... :roll:

Yeah, a new vegan bodybuilder in the game? Who is he?

I am?
I don't think so, and i sure don't hope so. A tiny little iron freak like me can't be No. 1... i'm 100% sure there are bigger vbbs than me out there.

Yes, i know what YOU do ;) :D

Here's what I did today ;)

I inserted an extra day, startin with 50% of my 15RM at 2x20 reps. It's very light, so i cut down the breaks to 0-90 seconds, and did supersets of two exercises, to get a cardio workout. In the SD, my cardiovascular fitness suffers most. Not to myself: Next SD continue with cardio! :roll:

Squat: 2x20 with 50kg
Bench: 2x20 with 40kg
Barbell row (overhand): 2x15 with 50kg - I had still the 50kg on the bar and forgot to reduce to 40 for 2x20... :oops:
Barbell press: 2x20 with 20kg
Chin-ups: 2x6 Didn't want to reduce weight and do latpulls instead, so i reduced reps instead.
Deadlift: 2x20 with 60kg. The second set killed me CV-wise, though even the last rep was very easy.

One set each:
CGBP: 1x20 with 30kg
Incline bench dumbell curls: 1x20 with 7kg
Dips: 1x15

It felt nice, good cardio :lol:

Tomorrow it's going to be 2x15 at 60% of 15RM.
The schedule will be two days on, one day off, with cardio (swimming) on off days.

Can't wait for next workout :D
