Hey tuc, nice training! You're getting strong 8)

That's a lot of protein bars! Makes me want some of them. They're the ones that are advertised on vegan fitness aren't they? How do they taste? I'm going back to Australia tomorrow and I'm bringing four boxes of builder bars and four boxes of clif bars 8) .

I'd love to see more photos of your equipment and food.

Thanks mate!

That's 144 bars to be exact... I sold some of them already though. Yes, I got them from JP @ veganfitness. They're not as good as Clif Builder's but still taste like candy... not too sweet, which is a good thing in my opinion.

I gotta take some more pics soon... maybe a vid of me bench pressing 100kg? Well, I'll see what I can do.

FIVE veggie ladies and you!!!!?!?!?

Oh man, yet another reason why it's good to be a veganbodybuilder ;) That sounds slightly distracting actually, hmmmm Nah you just cannot go wrong in a situation like that.

That video was freaking HYSTERICAL! I couldn't stop lawling over here at my layover on the laptop. I think i need to take a flight to come visit and see what it's all about ;) hmm wonder if Dani is reading this :roll: lol

L&G, that's right... sometimes I wonder how on earth I ended up living this way. Well, I'm not complaining. It's not that exciting but fun nevertheless. And you are always welcome here. :mrgreen:

Rühl videos are always hilarious. Especially this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGl_TEj1IIc

i'm farting and belching almost as much as he does. you don't? probably a lack of protein and water in your diet.

I fart when I eat too much, or junk food, or doing certain food combinings, that's pretty rare. But if you think that farting is a sign of being healthy, that fine.

xphilx, actually I've studied some german but I still don't get all of that. Hilarious anyway. :) Damn, you must be quite a farter!

IYM, yes, disgusting. And fun. All people fart, but after certain amount per day it may not be healthy. At least for the people around the farter.

Zack, I think I'm pretty much at the same level. Maybe even less!

John V, thanks mate! Doing my best!

Wed 21st January

1h 45mins bboying

Thu 22nd January

:boxer: Bench press 1 rep maxing! :boxer:

I started eating 4k calories a day, in two chest training sessions i went from 5 reps of 185 to 10 easy reps (felt like i had 12 or 13) + 5 @ 205..

Undereating for a year, and almost no progression, time for you to catch me. ;)

Not bragging, it's just our strength is similar i like to compete with you. :D

I've had a killer fever for 4 days now, I haven't posted pretty much anything since I've been too weak to even stand. I've had 102.6 F (39.2 C). I'll get back to my log when I feel like I'm not dying.

Also, there was some kind of a hair style contest thread somewhere. Please don't close it until I participate!
