Good to see you back.
Awesome looking food.

ahah, I guess the guy didn't know vegan sausages could even exist. I'll look for products like that to import and sell cuz today I looked a bit at the vegan products in health food stores in Montreal and there is not so much variety and no Viana products.
Yeah that training on sunday 2 or 3 weeks ago was pretty cool although both of us weren't in top shape to lift heavy because we did not trained for weeks prior to that. Although I trained a few times at the gym in Tampere. That was a good gym and I would love to go back to Finland soon !

Problem with spirulina is that you have to find new clientel every time since no one will order it again after tasting it :D

Welcome back dude! Will you guys come to vegomässan in december? :wink:

Thanks mates! This is the best thing about this forum, you always feel welcome here! I'll try my best to be on shape by christmas, shouldn't be too hard but it's really hard to start since it takes so many days to recover after starting again!

Yeah, if you're planning on ordering them pm me and I'll help you find them for the best price. And I try to buy from vegan entrepreneurs, so the whole chain is vegan (except logistics)!

Yeah, it was really cool lifting with you! Next time you see me I'll promise to be in top shape!

Actually I only bought them pressured as tablets which don't taste like anything. ;) I have to try to come to vegomässan but I can't promise anything yet. Hmmm... is there a possibility I might come and sell those sausages there.

I'll pm you! I do have those since I ordered something like 100 lbs more of those!



...ok, then about training!

I was super busy and only managed to do lots of bboying:

Mon 5th October

- 2h bboying

Wed 7th October:

- 1h 45mins bboying

Thu 8th October:

- 1h 15min bboying, 1h 15mins capoeira (taught by a real capoeirista from Brazil!!)

Mon 12th October

- 2h bboying

Wed 14th October

- 1h 45mins bboying

Thu 15th October

- Morning: 3h 45mins bboying
- Afternoon: 1h 15mins bboying

Sunday 18th October

- Bench press, barbell: 4 x 10 @ 56kg
- Standing shoulder press, dumbbells: 3 x 10 @ 16.5kg per arm

I really have to start doing a lot more... next week I won't be that busy so I think now is a good time to start doing things properly.

Additionally I've trained biceps several times but it's something I don't count as workout since I only do like a couple of sets before going somewhere where I have to wear a t-shirt. ;)

I also met some fantastic vegans! One girl, who was really fit had SOOOO muscular arms. She said that right now she can do about 8 pull-ups but said she has been able to do 10. Now that's something you DON'T hear often from a girl!

I also met a raw food vegan who is national champion in submission wrestling. He is called Jaakko Halmetoja, and is working as a nutrition coach and such. Seemed like a superb guy, I have to contact him and try to get him here! We were both talking in Tampere in an event about food and lifestyles.

Yeah and this time ACTUALLY BACK IN BUSINESS! I started a company on friday and I will start importing vegan stuff big time!

What comes to training, I've had rdiculous amounts of bboying and that's why I haven't been able to train much. But now everything is set up for a new start! Gym is all cleaned up and looking fine!

I won't even tell you how much I've dance but this gives some clue: in one week I earned about 1000 EUR (1500 USD) by teaching breakdance. You can just imagine how exhausted I was by the end of the week!

Sun 6th December

- Bench press, barbell: 6 + 8 + 6 @ 72kg
- Shoulder press, dumbbells: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 16,5kg
- Deep squats, barbell: 10 @ 52kg, 6 @ 70kg, then realized small pain in lower back and just for caution decided not to do more.
- Bicep curls, dumbbells: 3 x 10 @ 16,5kg per arm
- Bent-over rows: 3 x 15 @ 58kg

Fresh start, so taking it easy for the first few sessions.

Hey Octo! I think I should be fine... except that back pain that is really pain in the ass, literally since it's lower back pain just above the ass. I guess it's just some weak muscle a bit torn, I'll try to train lower body with tiny weights just to build it up again. We'll see how it goes.

Mon 7th December

- 3h bboying

Fri 11th December

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 50, 6 + 6 + 6 @ 74kg
- Dips: 12 + 12 + 9 @ bw
- Deadlift: warm up @ 50, then 5 @ 100kg and then that back pain I had last time came back. :evil:
- Bicep curls: 4 x 10 per arm @ 16.5kg

It'll take a while to get myself back in shape unless my back pain goes away. It's ridiculous to think that I didn't have any pain when I was pulling deadlifts like crazy at the very limits of my body and now it gets sore when I lift weights I used to lift while warming up!
