Hope all are well.
In the interest of honesty, I am not a 'fully fledged' vegan yet - however I am in the process and hope to get there soon. I have been a veggie since birth, however recently having become fully aware of certain things I am transitioning over to fully plant based, and hope to get there soon.
I currently am 27, 5'7" weighing 104kg - so very overweight. I've been told my cholesterol is dangerously high (another reason to go vegan), so need to make some changes. I used to love lifting and playing sport, specifically football (soccer) but a few knee injuries and 2 operations later it caused me some issues. I went from a stable 85kg to the 105kg mark that i'm around now in a little over 2 years. Bu hey-ho, past is the past, and after getting past my knee troubles, i've started lifting again (slowly).
I'm following a beginners program right now (Stronglifts 5x5), just to build up strength and will see how i develop before moving over to other programs.
I just had my 3rd workout in the program today, so will start my log from this:
Todays workout 03/11/2015:
Lat pull downs
Bicep cable curls
Heavy bag cardio to finish off.
1 minute punch, 30 second rest x 6 = 9 minutes
Good workout today, worked up a good sweat. Still no real challenge with the compound work, struggle a bit with the bicep curls at the end.
got the heavy bag set up so a nice little burst of cardio at the end.
Enjoyable workout overall!
I would greatly appreciate if someone can aid and perhaps direct me to some vegan nutrition plans, thanks!
