Thanks! I recently heard from the photographer (kimberlyfrost.com) and I should be getting the final edited photos from the last shoot soon. I'll put them up when I get them.

Damn, that is a lot of volume/frequency. How many sets do you do on average? Do you stay way the hell away from failure? I'd never be able to recover on a schedule like that, but it is obviously working wonders for you!

I go through phases of heavy weight lower volume training also, but for the most part I stick to 5-6 days per week once or twice per day, similar to the split Arnold describes in his encyclopedia. My body responds really well to it, but I often times will have to take my rest day early, I usually play that by feel. As for sets etc, I usually do about 5 per exercise and at least one set is to failure or past failure (usually) on most exercises except isolation moves. The first couple sets are warm up though so it's not quite as bad as it sounds.

Nice job! I have to say, you look much more balanced now from working so hard on your legs.

Thank you Robert! I'm glad I'm getting back in touch here, it is a great community and everyone is so supportive. It's great to work hard to improve your body and at the same time show everyone around you what you can achieve on a vegan diet. I never try to pressure anyone into changing their eating habits more than they are comfortable with, but I have gotten many Gold's Gym members to greatly reduce or eliminate their animal product intake just by setting an example. It's very fulfilling!
