I'll keep the weight the same for deads and chins, but up it on rows.

Nooo - the weight for chins has to increase steadily, as you GROW! ;)

Okay, I think I could afford to add some weight to chins.

Right now I just hold a dumbbell between my feet when adding weight to chins and dips. Does anyone know where I can get a good vegan-friendly weight belt?

Actually, i tried to be funny :P I mean when you grow and get heavier, the weight you move for the chins goes up, too ;)

But if you want to add weight, i use a chain - 100% animal-free ;)

A chain sound like a good idea. I just had a look at your journal, is this what you mean?

I have a non-leather lifting belt that I think could use a chain to attach plates to, like you have done in the above picture.

If you want to work on your grip strength while doing chins, try wrapping a towel around the chin bar a bunch of times so it has a wider grip

:lol: Funny you should say that. The padding on the chin-up handles has been torn off, so the handles are about the thinkness of the diameter of a nickel. I was thinking of a towel to make for the lack of girth, but it's good to know that it might help my grip as well.

Wow, you sure lift a lot for a guy who eats so little! ;)
I suppose it's hard to tell since you aren't listing amounts, but the menus are pretty short! :p

Monday 28 November 2005
  1. SQ: (20x45) (12x95) (4x135) 5x5x180
  2. SLDL: (10x205) 5x5x230
  3. ISU: 2x25xbw+7.5, 18xbw+5
Did much better on squats today, thanks to the advice Ryan gave me. I know it was the stance and bar position, because I tried it all ways and low bar, wide stance made a world of difference.

Today's Menu
  • 6 oz cultured soy w/ 3 tsp ground flax, pumpkin, sunflower and almond
  • 1 bowl cold cereal w/ soy milk
  • 1 cup chocolate soy milk
  • 1 protein bar
  • 1 sandwich
  • 2 slices of pumpkin bread
  • 1 energy bar
  • 3 fajitas
  • 1 cup chocolate soy milk
  • 1 salad w/ sunflower seed and dressing


[rant] Today I was reminded in the gym locker room why, even though cable comes free with my apartment, I do not have a television.

Image

Usually the TV set in the locker room is tuned into the talking heads of some sports show like Sports Center and the like. As I have no interest in competitive sports this could just as well be a test screen for all I care. But this morning the set was tuned to ABC Morning News (sic).

However, I would hardly call what this network was broadcasting "news." First was an incredibly inept story on the Minutemen, a racist vigilante operation patrolling, or, rather, profiling, U.S. borders. This story actually reported as if the Minutemen had some legitimacy. They even showed a person wearing a "White Pride" t-shirt, but didn't bother to seriously report the fascist leanings of this so-called movement.

Then they followed up with some nonsense about a celebrity couple flying blankets and food to the people of Pakistan on their personal helicopter. Of course, with some insulting blather about their new movie opening up in that country.

As a journalist by training I find this stuff very annoying. [/rant]

  • Power yoga
  • 3x25xbw crunches
Today's Menu
  • 1 cup chocolate soymilk
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 6 oz cultured soy w/ 3 tsp ground flax, pumpkin, sunflower and almond
  • 1 energy bar
  • 1 sandwich
  • 1 food bar
  • 1 cup chocolate soymilk
  • 1 bowl chili

Here's a before & after photo from my old log on veganfitness.net.

Image

The log, and the photo, coincided with a contest Ryan's was running on that other vegan fitness type community. I think I won, but I haven't heard back from Ryan, yet. :wink: :wink:

Anyway, my goal at the time was to gain mass; not for the contest, but for myself. I really like the photo, and find it inspiring to look back on past success. But I'm also determined not to rest on my laurels.

Daniel,

You did win - I just have been so damned swamped to get this thing set and wrapped up. I guarantee, before the weekend is out your gift certificate will actually be on the way!

Ryan
