I'm not one for technical terminology but I guess I always thought that a Military Press only refers to strictly pressing behind the neck (anterior/medial work) whereas a front press you would press the weight in front of your head (medial/anterior work) I just looked it up, i think i'm wrong though but that's what i meant :)


Well, it seems like it found a way to get these vlogs to update alot smoother. I have to use I.E. (WHICH I HATE) to use google gears for the bulk upload plugin. For some reason it won't work with my firerox or safari broswers and the individual upload query isn't too effective for some reason.

5 1/2 hrs sleep last night but feelin' good this morning. I bet i'll crash working tonight. Sun night will be a catch up rest day .... I hope. Provided I can fall asleep!

Without further adeiu, Vlog # 13! =)

Sorry to hear about your neighbors, L&G.

Lean and Green wrote:Ralst. It was a tire at the gym i went to and that gym is 2 hrs away, we went for the posing lights and equipment etc, motivation. I want to ask a junkyard if they have one to get rid of and i'll pick it up and flip it up and down my block shirtless for some cardio. Any reco's for types of tires?

To be honest with you, i dunno what the heck i was doing. I think I was deadlifting more. I have a video i can upload, perhaps tomorrow. my upload speeds are slow; i need to plan it properly. 348kps ul. Been an issue with the new service i have but i save on costs 20 bucks less per month and similar download speeds. Maximal cardio effort would be best for my goals at the moment bt after cop, explosive strength.


I don't know specific type of tires, sorry. All the tires I've used have just been placed at my gym by other people, so I'm not sure what type/size they are :D I did some tire flipping today for the first time in awhile, and even the light ones are pretty brutal for cardio. So whatever you can get your hands on should be fine. Back when I first started lifting I got my dad to go pick up a ~300lb tire for me, and I got in a lot of good workouts just with that.

It would be cool to see a video; not sure why but tire flips are just cool :)

@Washer I heart you!
@ralst yea man tire flips are just inexplicably cool, one of those things. That's it; i'm picking up a tire this week. It needs to be done. Hope to find one. I know a place that may get it for me
@fallen_horse thanks brother! Tell you the truth my biceps can take a beat down and they're ok. They also aren't crazy responsive to growth and need it but they do ok for themselves, average i'd say. they just feel nagging sore not painful sore after a workout like that

Quick interesting tidbit t share with all and i have a nice vlog to fild tomorrow morning and post in the evening but for now.... GET THIS...!

I have been having this damn metallic taste in my mouth that has really been pissing me off. It's irritating, constant, all day long and never goes away not for a second. I am thinking to myself i must be oding on some micronutrient or too much heavy metal?? I asked Dani about it b/c I was worried and can't stop it... She says perhaps ketosis, wasn't sure.

So I looked up metallic taste in mouth via google. LO and BEHOLD, it seems i have entered this state and i haven't even been dieting strict strict yet. This is a good thing. BF burning ripping up time here we come whilst sparing as much lbm as possible! I have done this before, just been awhile. I haven't taken this much protein in awhile say 4 yrs ago and when i did i was eating alot of everything, including carbs.

Before that was 7 yrs ago in total, not enough to remember funky gross metallic breath boy in action. I hate it and love it now at the same time. Love the results it is going to bring. Hate the sensation of it.

I may bulk up the carbs here and there if this proves to be too taxing but as of right now it seems dooable and postive in the feeling/energy dept.

night all; vlog #15 to follow in a day at most describing week 7 ;)

Why didn't I mention this to you. Oh well lol ;)
Call 24 hr fitness in Vancouver Washington. (Columbia Tech Center)
360-514-8381.
I was tire flipping in one of their boot camp classes.
They have a range of big and small ones.
The big ones was the size of the one you were flipping at Downings Gym.
If the front desk doesn't know, I'm sure the "Master" Personal Trainer will have a better idea as to were to get one.

Please check out my site to help streamline and facilitate fundraising and support to put all three of us on stage and help to subsidize costs. Consider a purchase or perhaps a donation? Yes we accept paypal but if you can do a check, it would save 3% processing fees that we get hit with fropm paypal on our side. Either way it's totally cool.

http://WWW.VEGANPROTEINS.COM (for now this is for fundraising, for the future, it will be a site co-owned and developed by myself and VeggiePrincess to bring VeganSupps to the masses and help us spread the message and word through our endeavors in addition to providing a service. As of now 100% of proceeds go towards 'the big 3 ;)' Thanks all!!!

@washer; OOOOOH i'd liek to train there, only 8 miles from me!!!!!

I took a cool vlog describing this week. It's uploading; i'll post tomorrow morning or by the afternoon the latest ;)

Today's workout; was a light volume day but keeping up with the cardio. I think it's like 8 or 9 days of cardio in a row. No more off days; cardio every day PERIOD. The time to watch it and lean out is NOW :twisted:

Had bouts of tired today from lack of calories and jumped out of ketosis as i had a nice sized serving of fruit at work. It was tempting! oh well, i don't consider that terrible. couple pieces of pineapple, 3 or 4 strawberries, handful of grapes, whatever. I s'b be more disciplined going forward as time is of the essence and i can't diverge from my goals even a bit.... I want to be as conditioned as possible.

Today was on point. Sunwarrior, spirulina with water (no strawberries in the mix), 1 1/2 oz red wine (keep blood thin), about 3 tbsp of vega oil and my supps, 10g creatine, 2 tbsp kola nut powder and 20g aakg powder.

Training?

15 sets of shrugs
20 minutes of treadmill h.i.t. style, interval training 6min mile - 10 min mile, 14min at rest in between 'sprints'
10 min stationary bike

that's all she wrote. Vlog and more to come tomorrow!
