Johan's getting in shape

#1 Postby xjohanx » Wed Oct 01, 2008 7:09 am

Newsflash! I'm starting a log!

30/9-08

I had an awesome shoulder workout with clean and presses, arnold presses some super setting and a little work on the calves.
Eating was okay. I had only clean meals but I did have some non-clean dessert to celebrate that my friend Gabo from Argentina/Spain arrived yesterday. He's the best.
BROTHERHOOD!

For sure! I decided to gain back the muscle I lost this summer so I'm sort of bulking right now.

1/10-08
Trained arms and abs. Did about three different excersises for triceps and three for biceps. Since I'm really disco I used supersets for triceps and dropsets for the almighty Bi. I also did some crunches, sit-ups and hanging leg lifts.
Kick it!

Did some leg work today. Deep squats, straight deadlifts, leg presses and some calf pressing.
Good times for sure. I'm starting to like the leg press more and more. The ways that you can alternate feet position makes it a golden excersise.
Eating was kind of bad. I'm stressed out by school so my friend is cooking everything for me basically. And he is anything but healthy. :roll:

Thanks dude. I've tried keeping logs before but failed completely. Hopefully it's different this time around!
Today I'm going to train back and then go to an AR protest to ban sexual assasaults on animals (yes it is legal for a human to have sex with an animal in good ol Sweden :x).

Back day. I was in a hurry so I only did a 30 min workout. But I managed to do deadlifts, wide grip lat pulldowns, v-grip lat pulldowns and cable rows. 15 sets in 30 minutes dudes, beat that!

Since I'm trying to gain weight I'm not "allowed" to train every day anymore. I do a 5 day in a row split program and then rest for 2. It feels weird not working out because I really want to go to the gym, just do some crunches, maybe a couple sets of dips and a few deadlifts, but I know that I won't gain if I do so. Also, it's good for me to have more spare time so I can focus on my studies. We have a final exam coming up and I'm far behind.
Today I went to my classmates place to study. He's a real cool guy and I got to meet his fiance for the first time. She was suprised, she said, because I wasn't ugly or skinny. She thought every vegan was.
I had my normal breakfast (oats, berries and seeds) and then I just snacked on veggies and fruits through out the studying time. When I got home I ate some puffed qunioa and buckwheat (love that shit, cheap, organic and tasty), seeds, dates and soymilk. Now I'm enjoying a coconut/lentil/veggie-dish which is delicous.
Hopefully I can keep myself away from the gym tomorrow too, but it's so damn hard when it's so freaking close.

Who needs protein, I cut out the middle man. I get my amino acids from ENZYMES DUDE!
Seriously, yesterday there was no protein almost. My friend that I spend the day at isn't veg and he usually just snacks on fruit inbetween lunch and dinner (crazy shit). But I did some calculating and just breakfast and dinner gave me about 75 grams of protein plus I always start my day with 6 grams of EAA's. :popcorn:
Don't worry dude, normally I'm consuming about 140-180 grams without even trying. I feel that when I bulk fats are the things that make me grow. So my energy % from protein is pretty low though.
