Some good consistency in here Michael, nice work.

How many days a week do you normally train? What does your pre and post WO nutrition normally consist of?

I've just switched from a soy shake to pea protein, had been using soy for about a year. I've never tried seitan or tempeh before, where do you normally buy that from? Thanks MF.

they are in the mock-meat section of any health food store.

tempeh is fermented soy--the healthiest, most digestible form of soy out there
seitan is wheat gluten, and is very high in protein and resembles the texture of meat

Am I reading that right ~ 205 pushups? Damn !!

I usually do mine in blocks of 50 reps split over 4 sets with about 10secs between each set. 20 reps/15 reps/10 reps/5 reps. Gets the chest pumped up, good to do before I head out somewhere haha.

MF, i'm doing just pushup workout now because my dumbells and bars are on my first floor and i have no heating there. since it's freezing and snowing for some time now i don't train in that cold. i just do different positions pushups downstairs where it's a nice temperature :)
i do aim to doing more amount because to me it gives a really good feeling.
