Macros from today:

3,030 cal

Protein: 223, Fat: 71, Carbs: 367, Fibre: 50, Sodium: 3,548

This is the least amount of cals I have eaten in a while, (1500cal deficit).Oh well, at least my protein was high (will prevent catabolism).

Log is full of strong protein voodoo. I approve.

Also, you might want to check out a couple of things I just wrote up about IIFYM and veganism for my blog since you're the only other vegan I know who "practices" IIFYM: http://veganatlas.tumblr.com/

Lower Body Power Day

90kg x 5
100kg x 3 (10kg improvement)

Hack Squats

110kg x 10 (20kg improvement)
120kg x 6 (10kg improvement)

60kg (stacked) x 10 (10kg improvement)

100kg x 10 (2 rep improvement)
120kg x 7 (20kg improvemens and a 1 rep improvement also)

Leg Curls

65kg x 6 (this is the machine stacked) (5kg improvement)

Standing Calf Raises

60kg x 10 (15kg improvement)
60kg x 8 (10kg improvement)
60kg x 10

Seated/Leg Press Calf Raises

140kg x 6 (20kg improvement)
150kg x 8 (10kg improvement)


Side notes / highlights of todays workout:

I finally broke into the 3 digit squats (100kg, yay! Still a long way to go though).

I finally stacked the leg curl machine and the leg extension machine at one of the gyms I go to.

On another note, with the standing calf raises, I use dumbbells as we have no calf raise machine (i.e. 60kg is 2x30kg dumbbells above). The problem I have hit is that I can go heavier but cannot grip the increase in weight, therefore I will have to stay at that weight uon that exercise until I invest in some straps.

As for the stiff legged deadlifts, I am happy with my current progress. I don't hace thee gripping problem with these for some reason, which is good, although I am not sure how heavy I should go to on stiff legged deadlifts. What's your opinion?


Here are some eats from today:

Breakfast:

Vegan Voodoo, so named thanks to Vegansludge:

Image

Pre workout:

Mexican Chilli Beans with some baby peas and Barbecue sauce (love that stuff, despite it being bad for you):

Image

Pre Bed Meal:

I call this one: The Vegan King Toasted Sandwich (my own little(well big) creation): Macros for it are: 624 calories, 54g protein, 21g fat, 51g carbs and 10g fibre:


Image

It was this yummy (photo taken 1 minute after making the damn thing:

Image

These were also part of my Pre Bed Meal:

2 Toasted Peanut Butter and Jam sandwiches (100% fruit jam, and 100% peanuts peanut butter). One was with crunchy peanut butter, the other was with smooth and they both had apricot jam. The macros for these were: 1,057 calories, 55g protein, 41g fat, 89 carbs and 21g fibre:

Image


So the calories rounded off for my pre bed meal were: 1681 calories, 109g protein, 62g fat, 140g carbs, and 31g fibre. Hey, you gotta eat big to get big!

Daily totals for today were still quite low, despite this big a$$ meal:

Totals: 3,328 calories, 240g protein, 90g fat, 346g carbs, 82g fibre & 4,981mg sodium. (I know what you are thinking, way too much sodium, normally I get 2500mg a day, however I compensated today by increasing my water intake to 5.5 litres today and consumed a few bananas (potassium)

Fantastic food pics I'm gonna try some of these out!!!

How many days is your split over? I'm asking because these so much your doing. Personally I'd even say your doing to much. It looks like an all over workout but even so I counted 8 movements...so much.

Biggest advice I can give is as your bulking is eat big, rest big but lift big.
My splits over 3 days & I prefer training this way.


Here is the Prog I'm currently following, only difference I do to this is on a Friday on the big lifts I do an extra 6th set immediately after the new 3 rep max for a little burn out.

I'll be popping up pics in my training log today at some point :)
