I took the weight up on a few of my lifts this week. Could definitely feel it. By time I got to the EZ bar curls I was pooped. Felt great though. Planning to change things up this next week. Torn between wanting to gain mass or definition. Doing a ton of reading lately on all options, gotta love Veganbodybuilding.com for all the info on workouts and nutrition.
Diet was awesome today, until the end.
Breakfast- 3 bananas, 1 kiwi, 1 orange. soy protein shake
lunch- clif protein bar and soy protein drink post workout
dinner- 2 large servings of tempeh and mashed potatoes
after dinner I strayed a little and had some vegan ice cream:) no regrets. so good, felt deserved and no harm done.
PS- anyone have any awesome workout splits they'd like to share, I'd love to hear em! I'm looking to change up soon, even if the splits aren't different, maybe you have some exercise suggestions for the muscle pairing I have going on now. I enjoy working out in some form 6 days a week, preferably not a full body workout so that I can continue this rate. Thank you in advance if you do share
