Are you sure it's not your legs since you won't show them? :wink:

Great condition though.

I don't show legs because it is not a big part of my routine. And it is kinda hard to get a decent shot of on my own of my legs in a bathroom mirror.

I will see if I can shoot them at some point near future. I mainly use legs with footwork in breaking and parkour which is jumping a lot and precision landings.

I no longer lift weights. I don't have time really. Just Parkour / FreeRunning practice and parkour class at this other gym called PRIMAL FITNESS or AMERICAN PARKOUR GYM. I basically do sprints and bodyweight workouts with small amount of aerobic exercise and avoiding white flower and added sugar and highly processed stuff. I do eat pasta once or maybe twice a week but 100 whole grain. I break once a week and not much at all cause it is at a dance bar and people usually spill drinks and crowd the floor. I will do Parkour 3 times a week for six weeks now and two days extra to practice outside.

I don't eat potatos or drink coffee (acrylomide) I stopped toasting my bread for long time but now put it in the toaster and leave it a few minutes and take it out. I don't really have any really cooked veggies. I do put ezekiel bagels in the oven. Gave up oil! and take D2, Omega3 as Salba (chia seeds) and Nutritional yeast (B12) with a occasional b12 vitamin supplement. Oh and Vega smoothie infusion ( whole food powder).
