A pretty nasty chest day :)

I would like to add that I started taking vega. It tastes gross and the texture is gross and it smells horrible (I'm sorry Robert...I know there is a video of you promoting it.....). However, my appetite is highly suppressed (a good thing), and I am getting double my body weight in protein (132lbs....260-270grams of protein/day easy) and staying within my needed calorie range. So, it is good...but I found that pea protein has 5 more grams of protein per serving and the same amount of calories at one third of the price! And you can order it from Puritan's Pride and usually it's buy one get one. So, I'll be using that once I finish this jar of vega. Another good thing about vega is that it forces you to drink a ton of water because it's the only way it can go down. I drank two scoops for breakfast, two scoops post workout at night right before dinner, and I will be having two more scoops before bed. The only foods that I look forward to eating anymore are Clif Builders Bars (about 3 a day) and Protein Plus Cereal. These things and the vega adds sodium, but I usually top off the day at 2600 mg...not as bad as it used to be.

6.6 mile run in the morning.

Work, Job interview.
Two shots of espresso with a splash of 8th Continent and truvia...anybody have thoughts on this??

1mile run on treadmill

Incline Dumbbell Press: 25x20, 30x16, 35x11, 35x10, 35x10

Pre-Exhaust Superset of Incline Dumbbell Flyes and Incline Dumbbell Presses:
Flyes: 20x16, 25x12x4
Presses:20x16, 25x12x4

Ribcage Pullovers: 35x20, 40x16, 45x12x 50x10x2

Dips: No assistance x 8 x 5 (weak at this point, not great form)

Pec Dec: 45x20, 50x17, 55x13, 60x10, 65x8 (or something very similar to this...)

Isolateral Wide Chest (machine with plates...I transition to machines with plates when I'm getting tired lol): 45 (each side) x12x5

Drove home, then a 4.4 mile run around the hood. Total ran = 12 miles.

yeah vega didnt do it for me either. Nutritionally it probably did but not taste wise None of my clients would stay on it either, so I guess no one thing is for everyone.

Today was the day I finally admitted to myself that legs need their own day, which will mean that arms will now have their own day as well, since I was combining all the aforementioned.

I ran 5.6 miles in the morning, showered, went to the doctor for my annual, ran 4.4 miles, went on a job interview, went to the gym, ran a mile on the treadmill. (total of 11 miles)

Superset of Lunges (dumbbells) and Squats (smith machine)

Did a warm up where my heels touched by butt on the squats...set of lunges too no weights. Looked silly :)

SUPERSET (no rest)
Lunges: 20x16, 30x14, 40x12, 40x10, 30x14
Squats: 50x16, 60x16, 70x16, 70x16, 70x16, drop set 50x16, then took the weight off and just used the bar to do 25 squats to touch my butt to my heels. The sweat was flying off me and I had to wipe the floor when I was done.... All of my squats were fairly deep, slow, and deliberate, except the last heavy set....then I was struggling to get low....

Quad Extensions: 55x16, 60x14, 65x12, 70x10, 75x10, 80x8
Hamstring Curls: 50x16, 55x12, 50x14x3

Calf Extensions (using some machine where you kind of sit): 35x16x5 (so weak....even though my calves are very well defined)

Leg Press: 90x16x5 (nice and low).

Had 259 grams of protein and only went 40 calories over a net of 1450....Thanks to 5 nasty servings of vega.....

Currently really freaked out about the talk of running preventing muscle growth....I ran 11 miles today (and the past 3 days)....as well as lifted...I feel like it's the only way to burn enough calories so I can eat enough food to get enough protein....unless all I eat is vega powder :(

Despite having to limp around the entire day from my leg workout yesterday as well as falling during yesterday's run, I had a good day working out....

5.6 mile run in the morning
1 mile run on treadmill
Close Grip Pull ups (to work the biceps): 80lbs assistancex20, 70x14, 60x10, 50(basically this is like no assistance cause I pull myself up faster than it can go up with me)x2, 70x12
Close Grip Bench: 60x16, 70x12, 80x10x3...my triceps are freakishly strong. One of the male trainers with pretty decent arms was doing these with 100 today...
Preacher Barbell Curls:35x20, 40x16, 45x12x3
Overhead Triceps Dumbbell Press: 40x20, (all the guys hog the dam 45's, had to skip it),50x12, 55x10x3
Oblique Hyperextension: 25x20x5, dropped last set no weight x 50
...Busted out the vega at this point in the work out...
Bicep Curls (a machine where your arms are angled over your head): 15lbs each armx16, 20x14, 25x10, 25x9, 25x8 (failed the last 3 sets)
Triceps Machine Thingy:35x20, 45x16, 55x12, 70x8x2
Single Arm Bicep Curls Using Pulley: 30x12x5
Single Arm Tricep Pull Downs Using Pulley:30x12x5 (last three sets after rep 9 had to cheat using opposite finger)
ran 4.4 miles

Ah ok ok. I thought their vanilla protein wasn't so bad, but green powders always make me weary!
