Welcome to the forum, Bart!

Time to G.A.P.! Looking forward to watching your progress through your journal updates and even more so, I'm looking forward to hanging out and training with you soon!

Thanks for GAP-ing and jumping in on here with your journal. As you'll see, there are well over 100 people who update their training journal daily! A lot of fun is had around here.

See you soon, homeslice.

I know that world of hurt feeling well! You'll see me go through it when we're kicking it soon. Sometimes after a really tough workout, I can barely get out of bed the next day. As it is now, all of my workouts are compound, multi-joint lifts, all with barbells and dumbbells. Therefore I'm wrecked on a regular basis but hopefully this will lead to some great muscle growth, and it sure does lead to some nice sleeping in! haha!

Have a great workout when you tackle it again soon.

Catch up later.

@Karen - Thanks very much! I'm taking a lot of this from "Vegan Planet" cookbook by Robin Robertson; I'm a huge fan.

@Robert - I'm trying to follow Derek's workout plan you posted onto BF a while back. I have to admit I'm avoiding cleans as I've never done them before and it looks like I could really screw it up!

----

Day3 2012-01-10

Back and Shoulder still really sore, but wanted to hit legs and chest, so I did a kinda abbreviated workout.

Smith Machine Squats
12@95 12@135 12@145 12@165 (no fails, probably should add some weight, woohoo!)

Incline Dumbbell Press
12@40 12@45 12@45 12@45

Dumbbell Row
10@35 12@35 15@35

Rows were really hurtin, so I called it a day a bit early. I'm happy with the squats :)

Foodstuffs:
Meal1: soymilk/blueberry/protein smoothie, sprouted e-muff, cashew butter
Meal2: banana (forgot my cliff bar, arg)
Meal3: gigantic calzone with tofu and spinach
Meal4: vega sport protein
--workout--
Meal5: apple, another vega sport protein
Meal6: tempeh/bean chili, kashi crackers, soymilk
Meal7: handful of raw pecans and cashews

I will aim to do a better meal4 tomorrow, the lack of fruit in the afternoon hurt my after-work training.

Nice work, 2.0!

You're getting strong man. I better bring my A Game to the ATX soon or I'll get served!

I'm working on Derek's approach as well, but also tailoring it to my own interests and training styles. Heading to the gym soon.

Keep an eye out for a tremendous amount of stuff being shipped to you. Probably a lot more than you expected! This program keeps picking up and more and more prizes get donated.

I'm going to have to fly Karen in just to help me with the shipping which will likely take an entire week! :)

Anyway, keep after it.

Great stuff, man! Train hard. Eat Plenty.

RC

Love hearing that you're sore as hell, you must be working hard! We'll get some great workouts soon! I had a huge lifting day for me. I'll post about it soon.

Yeah man, an entire pallet is coming from one company! Hope the cats don't mind new towers in their hotel!

I'll be there to sort it out soon! haha

Rock on. Say hi to Kate and have a great week/weekend!

Count em as deadlifts! A whole lot more lifting in that fashion coming your way soon!

Excited that you'll be able to try out all these products too. I had a bunch shipped to me initially so I'll fit as many as I can in the trunk and ship the rest. We'll have a heck of a shipping party sometime next month.

Nice work in the gym and excellent work with the monster Calz one!

Keep it 2.0 or higher!

Took Friday-Sunday off from training. Ate fairly well except for Saturday night where I binged at my friend's birthday party for half a vegan pizza, vegan chocolate cake, and around 4 beers. For shame! :oops:

The good thing is that I spent a whole lot of time putting together a mealplan for next week. I'm hoping to get this together today so I'm ready to kick some ass starting tomorrow!

Nice! Nothing wrong with taking some rest time and only a few things wrong with half a pizza, cake and a 1/3 dozen beers :)

haha!

Looking forward to seeing your week ahead. I hit it all weekend long so Monday is an off day to focus on tech stuff. I can nerd out and I'm pumped about it!

Have a great one. See you soon. Yeah Buddy!
