I'm undergoing chiropractic right now for some minor spinal mis-alignments. Yesterday as part of tracking my progress I got measured on my chiropractor's BCM. Here are the results. I think this will be a good start for this blog:

Body type: STANDARD
Gender: MALE
AGE: 29
HEIGHT: 6'2" / 188cm
CLOTHES WEIGHT: 4lbs / 1.8kg
Weight: 165.8lbs / 75.4kg
FAT%: 13.0%
FAT MASS: 21.6lbs / 9.8kg
FFM: 144.2lbs / 65.5kg
MUSCLE MASS: 137.0lbs / 62.3kg
TOTAL BODY WATER: 96.6lbs / 43.9kg
TOTAL BODY WATER %: 58.3%
BONE MASS: 7.2lbs / 3.3kg
BASE METABOLIC RATE: 7950 kJ / 1900 kCal
METABOLIC AGE: 14
VISCERAL FAT RATING: 2
BODY MASS INDEX: 21.3
IDEAL BODY WEIGHT: 171.4lbs
DEGREE OF OBESITY: -3.3%

Compare this with before I went vegan, I was vegetarian/junkatarian 182lbs / 18% body fat at the beginning of 2011. That means I've lost 11lbs of fat and 6lbs of muscle. CRAP. Looks like it's time to cowboy-up on ye olde calories!

From Sunday:
http://vegangymrat.wordpress.com/2012/0 ... -days-out/



=================

Did another bar workout yesterday and hit a new PR. 7 full-dangle chinups, and I got it on video! 7 weeks ago I could only do 2-3.

Did a recovery run today. Feeling fit!

Robert, sure that would be awesome! There are two Texas Tough Mudders in early 2012, one the weekend of Jan 28/29 on the coast and then another one the weekend of Mar 31 / Apr 1 in Dallas. The tricky thing is that 3/31 is also the day of Texas Vegfest in Austin. So I'm torn on whether I want to do the April 1st one as well.

More Tough Mudder training from a few days ago. First shot is a PR on full-dangle chinups.

Jeebus, this place is blowing up! Second page already?

Wednesday: Bar workout. Superset of full dangle pull up x 4
Thursday: Interval run out in Newport Beach, CA. Crazy busy business trip but there's always time to workout if you make the time!!

Well, well, well, if it isn't Iron Clad Ben himself! Nice to see you here :)
And in case you're wondering, I'm a fellow blogger, reader of your blog and occasional commenter. Cool thing that you got all your complete stats at the chiropractor's. Isn't it exciting to find out what your 'real' age is? I'm also 29, but 'really' 12. So, yay us :)

All the best to you!
-Carolina

Thanks for the greeting! Hello again.

If I remember correctly when I commented on your blog you were the person thinking about doing a 21-day vegan kickstart. Is that right? And I guess you decided to stay vegan? If so that's AWESOME! If not, sorry for remembering poorly. See ya around on here :)

You are absolutely right, that was me! Awesome memory you got there, Ben.

Yep, the vegan thing felt kind of great (surprise surprise!) and so I've kept it on. I just watched the last video about Tough Mudder posted on your blog. Holy cow! You've done it before and I'm sure you'll do fantastic again, my hat's definitely off to you! Maybe someday I'll see you there :)

So cool to hear! Now I'm inspired even more.

Tough Mudder is amazing, I recommend it to anyone who thinks they're super fit, or wants to be. Training for it will force you to the next level. BTW, you may have seen, the female champion of Toughest Mudder (the 24-hour race version), Juliana Sproles is vegan. We are taking over!

Friday: Rest day. Recorded a No Meat Athlete podcast with Matt Frazier and Brendan Brazier. It will be up early next week! Brendan is up to some really cool stuff. I'll post a link to it when it's ready.
Saturday: Bar-barian workout in the park. Brought my dogs who were a big hit with all the kiddos. Also, a lot of kids started trying to do push-ups, pull ups and other stuff on the bars. Glad to inspire fitness in the little kids. Get 'em started early!!

What I've been eating
Bananas
dates
SPINACH
Coconut water

Forgot to mention I hit up Au Lac's in L.A. Thursday night and it was OFF THE CHAIN. It's a vegan / raw-vegan restaurant in Fountain Valley, CA. If anyone is ever in L.A. you must check this place out. Even my omni co-worker loved it. We got raw soup, raw sushi and then some Vietnamese stir fry entrees. It was INCREDIBLE.

Sunday: Normally this is my long run day, but I like to scale it back every 4 weeks to prevent injury. I ran 5 miles today at a sub 8:30 pace!! RAWR!! As the Beastie Boys say "that's a record", well for me anyways :)

I ate 100% 80/10/10 this weekend. Watch this video!

Yo, Ben!

How is the training coming along?

I'm getting excited about my journey to Austin which will begin in exactly 2 weeks with many stops along the way.

Glad you guys had Brendan on the podcast. How did it go? I talked with him an hour or two after it. He mentioned talking with Matt, but I didn't realize it was for the podcast. Cool!

Hope all is well and I'm looking forward to meeting up in a matter of weeks!

Maybe you'll want to drop by for a few hours when kareno and I are preparing nearly 200 prize packages to ship out for the New You for the New Year Challenge finishers :)

I think we'll make a party out of it. I did the same when my book came out and I had 500+ pre-orders to ship out. 15 people showed up for a packing party :)

Go eat some bananas and run somewhere and I'll see you soon!

-Robert
