Wow, the amount of comments! :shock:

@ johanx: Beach season 2010 is 19 months away. :wink:

@ HCPG: Yes I'm serious about xkillerx, he's learning Finnish all the time so that he can move here with Hanna who he met in Vegan Fitness Week!

@ sosso: thanks for the compliment and for the info, I'll look it up at VF

@ Vegan Joe: thanks! Still have a lot to learn with teh "V" back! :/

@ BodhiDave85: I think I'll gain another 40 pounds of muscle and THEN lose the spare tyre! THEN I will be set. :mrgreen:

@ HCPG again: That's right! Here's my plan:

1.) Get big, like ridiculously big.
2.) Lose fat AFTER becoming ridiculously big.
3.) ???????????????
4.) PROFIT!

@ xphilx: The problem here is that when I started training I didn't know the poses, nor I could do them. I'll try to look up for a pic of front double biceps though.

@ xjohanx: More pics coming soon. And I bet HCPG knows how male human being works. I just don't want to lose the fat yet since cutting would pause my muscular development.

@ IYM: Thanks mate! Just wait for a year more and I'll be big as a side-by-side refrigerator!

Either you're sarcastic or you do not understand how a male human being works.

Or have talked about it with him. :D


Either you misunderstood him (meaning he want to have abs just cares more about bulking ATM) or he lied.

Nice progress!

But what does the "PROFIT" part mean?

OK. 1 year completed... results:

- Bench press 1 rep max from 60kg to 98kg (also sets of 8 @ 82kg and 4 @ 90kg)
- Squat from something really lousy to 120kg 1 rep max
- Deadlift 1 rep max from 110kg to 174,4kg (384 lbs)

Weight gain from 70kg to 80-82kg:

Image

Aamupaino = morning weight, empty
Iltapaino = evening weight

Pics:

Front double biceps, not that much of a difference:

Image

Back, HUGE difference:

General condition, huge difference:

You can check my training log from the training log section. I tell almost every rep I make. Hope I can help others to gain muscle! :popcorn: REMEMBER TO EAT!

Thanks mates!

IYM, it would be even better if I weren't so lazy to measure myself. Well, at least writing them down. :?

Fallen_Horse, I simply don't know. I don't have a training or eating program. I eat everything I see if it's vegan. I'd say about 3000kcal but I really don't have a clue whether it's correct.

bodybag, I hoped I could nail 100kg bench press (220lbs) but I couldn't. Still, I'm quite happy with the results. The real work starts now -> my goal is to do proper sets @ 100kg in bench press next year. :twisted:

Great work my friend. I have a treat for you on your blog; once I upload it, that is ;) You'll love it. Anyhow, keep at it, .U.D.D.Y.!!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

You're definitely an awesome example of someone who gets HUGE with hard work and a vegan diet. Inspiring stuff, i hope my back starts looking like that as soon as possible. :wink:
