I really dislike the days when I don't train but I know that I have to rest to gain some muscle.
I ate decent the whole day but in the evening I didn't have much choice so I bought a veggie burger and some fries. I didn't even taste very nice. But whatever. I'm gonna try to stay away from the gym tomorrow too, but I'm not sure if I can.

Great eating day last day (saturday). I stuffed myself with healthy goodies all day.
Today I'm allowed to go to the gym. SIKE

really inspiring to read other peoples training logs.
I just started building muscles and I really like it. But I get really pissed of when I cant go to the gym, for example when Im sick (like this weekend, im having a cold and sore throat). well, Im still a fatso and my bellys got "bilringar". But not for long!

and nice to know that theres people in sweden building muscles on a vegan diet, where in sweden do you live!?

yo, I live in rågsved sthlm.
maybe I should start my own log here. right now Im only writing things down in a book. witch isnt too bad either.
how long have you been training?

I read your log and I can see that y'all people on this site knows alot about food, protein and stuff. Im reading alot, but stil Im kinda lost.
how do I know if I get enough protein? really confusing. :?:

was looking at your pics and I must say that I'm really impressed. you gained alot. just to let you know that you really inspired me to go on with my training. yessurr!

Cool dude. A log is a great idea if you want to improve training and get ideas and tips from others. You should write something in the intro section too.
Protein is important but far overrated by many. If you post your stats (weight, height and age), your diet, your training and your goals we'll probably be able to figure out approx. how much protein you need. I'm new to Stockholm and don't really know where Rågsved is but I'm gonna look it up.

Cool. What are you doing here? And where are you originally from?
I live out in Huddinge by Karolinska so a bit outside of Stockholm to be honest. I think I acctually almost moved to Rågsved, it's in Bandhagen, right?

Weird girl started stripping in the gym in front of me. Good times.

Yesteray 29/10 I did chest
It went well and I did lot's of presses, dips, super sets and flies.
I met a guy there who was kind of cool, he spotted me when I did incline presses. It was funny because we had a lot of incommon friends but we had never met before. Later tonight I'm gonna train back. Yeah buddy!

30/10 Back day
Deadlifts (awesome)
Wide grip lat pulldowns (awesome)
Cable rows (really nice, a girl came up to me and said that I looked good while doing them)
V-grip lat pulldowns (Not very cool. There's something weird about the lat pulldown station in my gym, it's not tall enough)
Machine rows (awesome)

I'm starting to feel more at home in the gym. A lot of people say hello and the trainers say "See you tomorrow" everytime I leave.

31/10 Abs and calves
I did an extra session because I neglected my ab training this week.
Basically just a variation of crunches and situps. Also different calf presses.
On the evening I hanged out with Stockholm vegan straight edge crew and their friends. We watched some horror movies, ate organic pizzas and some weird German pie for dessert that the exchange student made. Me and two friends ended up in front of the computer listening to rock ballads and singing kareoke. Good times.
Later today I will train shoulders. I have to study a lot this week. I have an exam tomorrow and another one the week after that.
