Oh, did I forgot to say that we'll measure the weight in the evening (I'll force it).
My evening weight is now 176 lbs and it's only 20 lbs to my target. If I gain ~ 15 lbs muscle mass in a year I'll reach my target easily while keeping my body fat approximately the same (abs only slightly visible). My friend will have a VERY hard time reaching his target since it is extremely difficult to lose 65 lbs while keeping all his muscles. I am currently almost as strong as him (except his legs), he might be able to do 1 rep more than me in bench press @ 80kg.
Did I mention that I work out almost entirely at home without help (except YOU guys!!! and my mates) and he's working out in a fancy gym with a personal trainer and a nutritionist? That makes it much more fun... I'll show what you can do while being a vegan without any fancy stuff!
Also, neither of us will use any illegal substances. Obviously. We're not that dumb.
hilary, you can check how I work out here:viewtopic.php?f=24&t=10615
Great to hear youve put on so much muscle! I just have to do what you did. I currently use soy protein but I think I'll try gemma and hemp protein too.
xjohanx, thanks for the great oatmeal recipe. I'll try it as soon as I get the ingredients!
medman, he's not going to kill me with a huge steak... I don't think we have those gigantic steak houses in Finland. Anyway, he can plan whatever he wants. He will be the one eating tofu after 12 months!
And thanks for good luck!
