Robert, Robert, Robert.... ;)
Put on some weight man! Even if you do high rep - i know you're stronger than that!

Your volume is very high, you don't seem to have much rest between sets.

High volume, high reps, low rest - cardio???

I'm curious to see if this works for you :)

And... you know... squats?!
;)

It seems to be working better than anything :)

And NO Squats. I gave up on those. Too many injuries, everytime I try to make a return to them.

I'm falling in love with lunges and they are working very well.

I weighed in at 191 recently but I had clothes on :wink:

Way too busy to get photos taken, but maybe soon. I'm much busier than I was when I was organizing the Vegan Vacation. I'm working on a much bigger project that may have 500-1000 people participating.

But yeah, bulking is going very well and I'm making time for it, even when I'm super busy.

I hope bulking goes well for you too. We'll see who gets to 200 first :?: :?:

Here's the answer Rob, NOT ED! I was almost 180 without clothes now I'm 178.1 with clothes. I took a 6 week break from lifting due to some family problems, but I'm pushing more weight than before....so....maybe all I lost was some fat?

Glad to hear your bulking is going well, and I'm planning on saving up for the November get-together out there (if that's the project you're referring to).

Cool. Yeah, the November Vegan Holiday Festival is what I'm working on.

Howard Lyman just confirmed he'll speak :P

He is one of the best Animal Rights/Vegan speakers in the World.

Back to work for me.....:) Keep bulking!!!

I'm trying to bulk though. I've been eating ridiculous amounts of food, and going to the gym again, so hopefully really soon I'll be a beefcak....tofu-cake. :-D

It seems wierd to me that you can do lunges with weight but can not do squats. Maybe it is the crazy lightweights that is the difference, but that is a tough break that you can't do them!

Keep up the bulking! I've been bulking as well and I am up around 220 now, I've got to stay ahead of you!

How frequently do you train legs? I see the log posts it once in awhile, but you have also mentioned you don't get every workout posted in here. It looks like once every 10 days or so, but I don't have my glasses on and the dates get difficult to read.

Regards,

Sensless

I train legs every 6 or 7 days.

Lunges are ok, barbell lunges aggrevate my back a little, but squats are not an option at all. Dumbbell lunges don't bother anything.

I don't get everything updated, just too busy.

But I normally train 4 or 5 days a week 70-90 minutes at a time.

I trained abs and forearms last night. It was about 80-90 minutes. No time to list what I did, but it was cool.

Then we had food from Proper Eats, Vega smoothies and talked about Pro Wrestling.

Well, behind schedule as usuall.....and leave for Canada tomorrow morning...bye for now.

I used to hate squats. I always would hurt my back too.

I suggest getting a belt, however, considering you can't really afford to take a week or so off for a slight injury it really is your call to risk it.

I can take as much time off as i want. I just don't wanna get tiny!
