Hi,

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:

Squats :
20kg 2x5
25kg 5x5

Bench:
22.5kg 5x5

Barbell Rows:
5x5 32.5kg

Extra exercises:

Lat pull downs
20kg 3x12

Tricep pushdows:
12.5kg 3x12

Bicep cable curls
10kg 2x12
10kg 1x9


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!

Thanks Kathy.


Todays workout:

Squats:
20kg 2x5
27.5kg 5x5

OHP
22.5kg 5x5

Deadlift
60kg 1x5

Felt really good today so had another workout, but kept it to just the compounds - where possible i think I will push myself to have daily workouts, in particular for squats. Been reading a lot of info lately saying squatting daily can be extremely beneficial, so will give it a go - obvs very low weight at the moment so will keep it going, and will review at heavier weights if I begin to struggle.

Nothing other to report, just a good quick workout.

Cheers!

Today's workout 03/11/2015:

Squats:
20kg 2x5
30kg 5x5

Bench:
25kg 5x5

Barbell Rows:
5x5 35kg

Another straight forward workout, all went well. Really enjoying the squats, want to get on the big plates, but of course being sensible and not letting my ego lead me to another injury!

Looking forward to tomorrow's workout!

Hey man! I am 28 and a dude lol... we have a lot in common.

I turned plant based a few months ago and vegan around a month ago. My cholesterol went from 11.3 to 4 in a couple of weeks. (or 440-150 in American terms). My knee pain in my left leg also went away, which I believe was because of my uric acid going down.

Good luck!

Hi all,

Delayed workout this time, was down with flu and then travelling for work for a few weeks. Although I used hotel gyms, no power rack so couldn't continue 5x5

Anyways...

Squats:
20kg 2x5
32.5kg 5x5

OHP
25kg 5x5

Deadlift
60kg 1x5

Good to be back squatting, was all easy enough so no complaints.

Did a bit of light bag work after to work up a little sweat.

Next workout tomorrow, have a good Sunday!

Skeering - glad things going well for you pal, you will be serving as my inspiration!

Evening all.
Decided to skip yesterdays work out, as after not squatting for a while legs were sore, so i didn't do back to back workouts and had a days rest as the program requires.

Today's workout 01/12/2015:

Squats:
20kg 2x5
35kg 5x5

Bench:
20kg 2x5
27.5kg 5x5

Barbell Rows:
5x5 37.5kg


No troubles, straight forward again, and a bit of light bag workout to go along with it.

Another one tomorrow if i feel ok, else will be Thursday.

Have a good night!
