Just a peek at what's going on, no need to spoil the whole show just yet! I think I am finally starting to nail down how to fully flex my legs >:-)

Image
Taken about 30 min ago, 5 days out from our first show. It's a small one so i'm not going to come in at peak conditioning to save myself for the BIG SHOW which is 19 days out. But i'll be pretty close ;) I'm not one to step on stage unless I have some good stuff to show. So there's been some major regimen changes implemented an in effect within the last 10 days....

Another VLOG entry and it is a cool one imo! :mrgreen: Mr Green at work :mrgreen:

25 _ Our First Garden! a.k.a. "pre contest cardio" ( 04/06/09)
Pre contest low to moderate intensity done THE RAW VEGAN WAY!!!!


Got the cardio in, practiced posing for about 1 1/2 hours and now going to the gym for about an hour to do legs. Then coming home and soaking in a ginger root infused hot bath to tighten up skin or something like that (ask dcninja and joelk they recommended). Then rest rest REST ;)

tues, wed, thurs psycho short rest 1 hour circuits on whole upper body no legs i want them rested WELL i have trouble flexing them. cardio 1 hr a day about probably cycling with my go vegan shorts around town or something like that.

Fri rest and posing every day twice a day.

Sat SHOWTIME ;)

lata

Tomorrow some free minor physical at my local grocery store pharmacy for me and rc, good stuff.

Excuse me Mr Princess ????? Who is out there on her knees and buried in dirt ???? :P Damn you're one lucky man.

Just razzing ya buddy.. Miss you guys SO much. Come and visit soon :) I'll take you on a 18 hole of free golf at my work place.

Here's some pictures I took when I went around in the Golf Cart.

If you look closer, you might be able to see Mt. Baker (a Ski mountain) on the far right.

@Washer looks beautiful! Unfortunately I HATE GOLF lol tried so hard to like it but cannot.

@RAAAAAHC AHH C aka Robert; heck yea; so SIKED about this brother.....

Draggin a bit at the gym. Last leg workout. Guy strolls in the gym. I walked near him and he was like hey... i'm straight... pause... I just wanted you to know that you look perfect. I explained what I was doing and said thank you very much. He said the girl he was speaking to stopped her workout to discuss and said the same thing to him as well. Ego aside (which i have pushed aside, trust me) it was a major booster while i was draggin to finish up my last leg workout before the contest STRONG. Did twice as many reps the last 2 sets than the two prior on same exercise same weight. Positive affirmation that i'm doing well helps keep me going. I was feeling fatigued today. Had about 175 calories more in the form of protein then i would have liked but i'm not worried.

My stats are solid at the moment. Coming in light but i'm also taking in diuretic herbal extracts at max dosages .... so....

Waist is at or slightly below 31" at the moment. I'll post up some stats STAT when i have time to measure. May not happen but i'll try.

Lots to do.

Wanted to do hot ginger infused bath water soak but cannot find the bulk ginger i bought. I'm on it for tomorrow BUDDAY

Let's promote this Portland show around facebook, myspace, the forum and word of mouth! It will be a small show, but let's get some people to come out and watch us!

We will likely need a few people helping Brian carry equipment, film with a 2nd camera, still shots, etc. I'm working on that with Brian.....but anyway, I've already offered a FREE VB&F shirt to anyone who comes, as well as other things...I have plenty of ProBars lying around I won't be eating until after the show so I can part with them, as well as other goodies.

I hope people come out on their own accord just to support us and be part of it but I'll offer incentives anyway, since it is expensive.

See you in the morning...later this morning....let's promote this event! :)

Yeah Buddy! Looking great man!

Training in the garden! That's great. My girlfriend and I are planting a blueberry bush today. Righteous. I really want to come to the Portland (Clackamas) show, so hopefully I'll be there. Keep up the hard work. You're crazy man.

AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much! You rock man! You've seen us in the gym getting ready for this for many weeks now! We will likely use your help too for some still photos or video back-stage, etc. Meeting with bvp and Lean and Green today to talk about the needs we'll have for assistance at the event.

Thanks! See you there!

@MaryStella; I actually dreamt that I met you and just realized it now as i'm reading your posts to say thank you. How odd! :D I was extremely happy I got to see the dedication and hardworking MaryStella in person. You were buffed out but humble. Thank for your continued to support. It keeps me going ;)

Clearly were going to meet someday. It will be fun times. Can't wait to hear how you do in the local comp. Good Luck!

Somebody get this guy a SHIRT!!!!! :D You're awesome bro. Thanks ALOT. so much going on right now. Every little thing someone assists us with helps BIG TIME. Seriously ;)

RC and BVP663, looking forward to seeing you guys in a bit to do some more footage and stuff. Just finished some more steps to pass on to DropSoul our creation in progress to launch VEGA on http://www.veganproteins.com

For the record, we do carry it and i have fully inventory of every product which will arrive in about 6 days. I can take orders now but it has to be on pm's only or emails a there is no page up yet. So now there is yet another way to help raise money and support this project. By getting your Vega through LnG.... BUDDAY

Thanks DCNINJA! I hope to chill with you when you're back here for the comp. I love it our here; i'm sure you'll be happy to be back for a bit... I'll handle the vega/sunwarrior next week when it arrives and in between shows. No worries, i'm on in ;)

@Joelk: spoken like a true champ! SUCK IT UP!!! Love it. Hey preparation-h has shark liver oil; that's a no can do and thiomucase is too late to get and costly. Any other skin tighteners you can recommend last minute and for the big show?

Had last Legs workout before this comp yesterday and last upper back/chest/shoulders workout just now.

Wednesday: Bis and Tris
Thurs: Traps and Forearms
Fri REST
Sat SHOW

Need to keep muscles relaxed pre show so i can flex them it's so much work. Posing itself is a ton of conditioning on my damn calves. And I want to have my abs fully rested this week so i can hit em hard on stage :D

off to hope for some rest.......
