When I was running on the treadmill it felt as if I was flying with my lats cause they popped out so much.

Thanks for the concern Casey... check your pm's!!

I got to the gym at 7am this morning. I did some DB squats(touched the floor) 25lb,45lb,65lb,80lb...

Then I was going to squat heavy(which I hate doing by myself), but the squat rack was busy so I hit the leg press machine. Here are sets I did(when I mention a plate or more it means that many on EACH side):
1Px10
2px10
3px5
4px5
5px5
6px5
7px3
*20 jump squats
8px2
*50 bodyweight squats
9px2
*20 standing lunges
10px4 did another set for 1 so (x5 total). I really doubted myself, but I pushed myself through extra ones vs last week!!!
5px10(wide toes out)

seated calf raises did about 100 reps with 90lbs
Hanging knee raises

(on my way out of gym I missed a step and rolled my ankle. Hopefully its not bad. I am icing it now)

I will go back this evening and do some leg extensions.

Oh man, careful with that ankle! I rolled mine today because I never tie my shoes and step on lots of curbs...but I didn't hurt myself.

Put a cold Pro Bar on it :)

I took yest. off and did a little mix today. Quads, pullups, Clean/jerk, biceps, tri's, delts, and run on treadmill for 2 miles.

Here some pics. from today: Not great, but not horrible IMO. I hav not tanned in a couple weeks either.. need to get back on that. Also I have not squatted in a couple weeks.. probably why my legs dont look up to par. I guarantee I will be squatting this week

Sweet man!

I love the garden hose veins in the arms! Nice!

Good stuff man....only 10 more weeks now....actually 9 weeks and 6 days!

I'm doing cardio to catch up to you in leanness...it's coming along. The shirt and hat both look good. Nice lifts too. I'll be in touch this week and hope to have stuff to send you soon.

We're selling tons of shirts these days from all the promotion on this forum, myspace, facebook, etc. So that will really help all of us.

Also guess what....tons of forum members/myspace friends/facebook friends live in Phoenix! So we'll have our own crowd there from the vegan locals! It should be sweet. All the best man....keep after it...we're almost there!

Hey dude the pics looks awesome! You guys inspired me to try and press heavier on the shoulders but I'm wondering how the ROM should be. Some people (like me) take it as far down as I can while some stop as early as when the elbow is paralell to the floor, what's your take?

Deep, your delts need the stretch.. halfway is essentially triceps.
Lifts:
250 Bench
445 Deadlift

Its all about feeling the muscle! I actually almost touch my shoulders with the weights and then back up. Go for the feel and not necessarily the depth. Do partialls with something like a Smith machine and:

keep it from chest to chin for 30reps
forehead to lockout for 30 and
then a full 30. Bet by the time you do the full you will be burnt.

If the pics of my delts say anything then take in the info I give.

Thanks Tasha.

Sorry for the delay in posting. I have been having problems with my internet.

Yesterday I did Heavy Hamstrings, Heavy Calves, Heavy Abs and some lat pulldowns.

It seems as I have been preparing for this show I dont get sore much. Im gonna have to start doing 2 a days just so I get that extra pump. My traps are a little sore from the other day, but thats the only thing.

Today my workout is gonna be:
Squats, Arms, delts, and cardio.
