Your politically correctness made me :) ... yeah, Summer was shaky, I got a few workouts in here and there (I didn't log them on the site). It was difficult to get in the rhythm of going to the gym this past summer. After I experimented with the diet I lost quite a bit and with summer being so busy I kinda gave up on trying to build it back until I could devote more time. I'm back down to 176 but hopefully will build back up soon enough as I have plenty of time on my hands now. My weight is notorious for easy fluctuations and eating a plant based diet seems to make it fluctuate that much easier. I'm gonna shut up about my training for awhile as it seems that over the past 3-4 months when I start saying that I'm back at the gym something comes up to hamper the progress. Just gonna post my workouts and what not and hopefully make some progress. The numbers I threw up the last couple days were really lite, DOMS is my best buddy and he loves stoppin by to pay me a longggg visit after he hasn't seen me in awhile. I'm trying to sneak by him this first week or so.... :boxer:

Last couple weeks have been great. Consistent with training and food. Getting stronger by the week, but not quite back to what I peaked at last year. Throwin the 90s around again which feels good. Goal is to get the 125s up for 3 before my birthday. I haven't been writing my progress as of late but I told my training partner that we need to start logging, so maybe we'll start next week...

Are you still as strict as you used to be with diet?

bringing your shakes to work in mason jars to reduce oxidation, etc. etc.. ?

The mason jars and pump-n-seal are still in full effect! ... I'll update my "Eat." log here shortly but the basics are the same. :) Currently, chlorella/spirulina for breakfast, 1 fruit/protein/grain smoothie, 3 leafy-green/seed/nut/grain smoothies, and a solid dinner. Divided the postworkout nutrition into pre and post now.

BENCH !?

#163 Postby Troy » Mon Dec 01, 2008 4:22 pm

So I did a few sets of barbell bench today.... 1st time in like 6 years! Heres how it went down:

Dumbbells Slight Incline 70s x 15
Dumbbells Slight Incline 80s x 12
Dumbbells Slight Incline 90s x 10
Dumbbells Slight Incline 90s x 8
Dumbbells Slight Incline 100s x 6
Barbell Bench 185 x 8
Barbell Bench 225 x 3
Barbell Bench 250 x 1

Kind of freshing to step away from the dumbbells for a minute. I actually surprised myself and didn't think I was gonna get 225. Maybe I'll hit the barbell up again in another 6 years. If anyone is wondering my PR for bench in college (10 years ago) was 225x17 and 315x1, but I don't remember being able to touch the 90s or 100s for dumbbell bench... weird stuff.

Say Troy,
I was just wondering what kind of goals you had and are setting for yourself now. I was reading a little about your min. protein intake and was wondering were you were going with all of this?
