Big Lance's training journal.

#1 Postby Biglance » Fri Dec 30, 2011 12:43 pm

I am excited to take part in this process and be part of this site.

Looking forward to continue my transformation that began on July 5th, 2011. I was 226 lbs that day and started juicing for 18 days after seeing "Fat sick and nearly dead". During that process I read books The China Study, The Enzyme project, Eat to Live among others. I watched Forks over knives and all other documentaries.

it became clear to me a plant based diet waste best choice to naturally eliminate illness and lie a long healthy life.

I been plant based ever since and I am down to 193 lbs. I was to continue the weight loss and get my body into the best physical shape of my life.

I am 2 weeks ink a coach to 5k program to run my first 5k in March, I have never ran in my life at the age of 49.

I eat fruits, veggies, beans, nuts and whole grain products. No white flours, sugars, oils, salts, pop, etc....

Looking forward to this journal. As for today, I am eating, beans rice, veggies !

Thanks viciousvixenx! I'm excited about it!

Just got back from 2 hours at gym, did 10 of the circuit machines, 30 minutes cycle, and 20 minutes sauna.


Came home had some pinto beans I cooked in the crock pot, with onion, cumin, cayenne, garlic, paprika and brown rice. I covered it with shredded lettuce and tomato. Yum!


Take care friend!

As I been reading some of these other journals, I realize how much I need to learn about my gym time.
My sets are usually 3/12 on all of them. I need to learn the names of all the machines also lol

Hey if you are really interested in learning muscle groups and the type of exercise you are doing you should try The Strength Training Anatomy Workout by Delavier.... it helped me a lot

Grapefruit,, lots of water, pinto beans and brown rice covered in fresh tomato, onion, lettuce and peppers. Family party tonight. It's my day off from exercise today.

Tomorrow I start day 1 of the couch to 5k program, Monday I will return to gym for weights and cycling.

Arms are really sore today can hardly bend them straight, kind of a good feeling:)

Happy New Years to all.

I need a week one very basic weight training program for mon, wed, fri next week.
Will us the 12 circuit machines they have, want to tone up the entire body but more concerned about arms and chest. Will be doing a cardio on cycle these 3 days also, on Sun, Tue and Fri I will be doing a couch to 5 k program on treadmill I am in the 3rd week on.

Any suggestions.

I have about 90 minutes for gym in the mornings.

You will be doing a 5k in no time! I'm excited to hear your progress on that.

As for the term toning... I think that you should drop it go for more!! Toning doesn't really mean anything... you want to get ripped! :wink:

Had a great session starting my week 3 couch to 5k program.
Thinking Gym tomorrow. My crockpot of bean soup and veggies turned out amazing.

Keep on trucking,
