Hey Bart! Hope that meal plan works out well for you tomorrow and through the week. That's a good idea - one I should do, too! Rather than just leaving food to chance.

Good luck this week!!

I'm enjoying seeing the Vega on there! The new Vega Sport Protein is so good! And if you haven't tried the new Vega Protein bars, you'll soon say goodbye to Builder Bars. That is what happened to me and others. Again, so good!

How's muscle soreness from the previous workout?

How many days a week are you training, on average would you say? I'm hitting hit hard but only training about 4 days a week. Doing one of those "less is more" approaches by training super hard and with heavy lifts, but not necessarily training 5 or 6 days a week. 4 works for me.

Looking forward to getting some workouts in soon. Excited to see the various animals as well. My journey begins in a week.

Keep up the great training. All the best!

Surprisingly I'm not really sore at all! I can't workout on Tuesdays due to some other commitments (guitar lessons!) so I'm aiming for a schedule like this with 4 days of workouts

Monday: big stuff all muscle groups
Tuesday: off
Wednesday: big stuff all muscle groups
Thursday: little stuff I missed (calves, arms, abs, whatever else)
Friday: off
Saturday: big stuff all muscle groups
Sunday: off

Where Friday/Saturday are kinda interchangeable if I'm feeling tired or feeling good.

In the past I've aimed for 4 days and usually only hit 3. I'm trying to still aim for 4 but really follow through on my commitment.

I haven't tried the vega protein bars yet, I would like to make the switch as I view the builder bars as very acid (and I have plenty of other processed foods in there as well to add to the problem)

I like your use of "stuff" :)

Food stuff, Big stuff, Little stuff.

Nice!

So, you're going to play some songs for me when I get there? Sing me a song, you're the guitar man....sing me a song tonight.....we're all in the mood for some heavy metal, so jam those strings just right!

Yeah dude, Vega protein bars are the best, of all the bars I've tasted. Will ensure you get a chance to try them soon.

Enjoy hitting the big stuff in the gym!

Nice work on stuffs!

And if you think having me assist on vocals is a good idea, you must have missed all of my other attempts at music. Though I hope to someday be a vegan hip hop artist :) Even if only 1 person listens, I'll be pumped.

A little break from the death metal, eh? Nice, I'm sure the dogs like that. :)

Dude, an entire pallet (if you checked the 12 Days section, you'll see what it's about) is arriving! I'm emailing you about it. You'll have tons of lifting to do! Thanks in advance. A whole bunch of stuff is arriving any day and it will be heavy. You got your dips in, now prepare to do some squat, lift, carry and stack! :)

Yeah Buddy!

@robert maybe it's time for vegan rap'n'metal? lol

Day 13

Planned rest day, well deserved as those dips left my shoulders feeling really sore. Also mid-back is really hurting, I think it may have been the pull ups two days earlier!

Foodstuff:
Meal1: ezekiel cerial, raspberries, soy milk, cliff builder bar
Meal2: green protein drink, apple, banana
Meal3: Counter-Culter tempeh reuben, curry quinoa, vitamin water
Meal4: two cans of beer at the pinball arcade (for shame, had to blow off some steam from work)
Meal5: two spinach enchiladas, bunch of chips and salsa, cup of spicy black beans, many waters

that's it, not proud, but trying to keep an honest count for posterity!
