Okay! I cannot post the rest of my workout any way I try! The above took 7 postings and edits to get that much in there. It simply will not take the rest no matter what I do. If anyone is interested, my log is at http://www.veganfitness.net/forum/viewt ... 418#64418t

Hey Michael, your workouts sound intense. :D I was curious what results you had when you did BFL? Do you think it is effective for burning fat? Did you aim for hte 6 proteins a day or just do the best you could?

Thanks Ash, I do try to keep up the intensity.

Body for Life worked wonders for me back in 2000 when I first tried it. I followed the diet as best I could, but always got 6 proteins. They weren't always the "quality" of proteins that the program called for, but I still got great results. I usually did shakes for 2-3 meals a day.

Overall, I lost about 30 pounds of fat my first time through, most of it in the first 6 weeks. Good luck, it really does work. Keep the diet strict throughout the week and don't forget to go a little crazy on free day. :D

That's why there is a big gap near the beginning of my log. I had these problems before, now they are back. :(

Monday, November 14

Finally! I managed a triple with 225 pounds on the bench press! I've been working on that for two months now. I felt so strong, I even went for a fourth rep. It didn't go up! :twisted:

Also managed to push 245 for one, which I failed at on last wednesday's workout. It went up pretty easily. This is a big deal to me because I worked long and hard to bench my bodyweight(244) and I don't want to start slipping back now!

Barbell Bench Press -
10x135 pounds
8x155
6x185
4x205
3x225!!!
1x235
1x245
fx255 mental mostly I think
5x205
12x135 close grip

Tricep Cable Push Down - 3x8x100pounds

Dips - 2x12xbodyweight (No shoulder pain, yeah!)

Thanks mate! I actually got that months ago, my current bench record is 255. I was just starting to worry after failing on 245 last week that I was backsliding too much.
