Hey all, signed up early last year after lurking for a couple years prior. Haven't really had the time to post, but there's not many veg-heads in my area, so hopefully this brings a few new friendly faces into the social sphere. Currently 155lbs. @ 6'1". Not sure where my bodyfat is, but I'd guess it's somewhere between 11-13%. My current PRs are as follows:

Deadlift - 300lbs (Jan. '10; mixed grip)
Squat - 235lbs x 2 (Jul. '09) [Above parallel...hoping to fix that]
Bench - 175lbs. (Apr. '10)
Press - 120lbs. (Jan. '11)
Pullups - 17 reps (Feb. '11)
Pushups - 101 reps (Oct. '07) [Before I had much equipment, so I was training these often. Haven't gotten over 70 since]

In September, it will be 5 years since I quit eating meat and come Christmas, 7 years since I began lifting weights. I've always trained by myself with whatever equipment I have at home, steadily adding to the collection of knowledge & implements over the years. I'm not a freak by any means, but I hope I can do my part in destroying the weak/wimpy/pushover stereotype veganism has to deal with. My long term goal is to stay healthy & strong well into advanced age (I want to be able to squat with my grandkids if/when they get here). I'm also an avid motorcycle rider/racer & cyclist, so I try to train to I can get better at those activities too.

At the moment, I'm training for the Bodybuilding.com $100K Transformation Challenge. My training stagnated towards the end of last year after getting a new job & the holidays, so at the beginning of January, I signed up. I figured I could use a good kick in the rear, plus if I do it right I'll be lookin' pretty good and I'll have a shot at some cash. My final day is April 1 (who'd have thought lol). Anyway, on to the workouts. I'll start with yesterday so I can get in a full week's worth this week.

Squat (Full ROM, Submax Reps, Full Recovery) - 115x3 (2), 155x3, 175x3, 185x1 (2)

Nice, you are around my height and weight. Have trouble finding perfect fitting pants too? Hhahaha, I like your pic/logo. Seriously though its good motivation to see others that are around the same height and weight posting their fitness journals. Its more helpful for me than reading about how 200+lb body builders workout.

Thanks man. Yes, I'm a 29 waist and a 34 inseam; pretty much impossible to get without being custom made, lol. I usually settle for 30x32s and that seems to work if they don't shrink. Shirts are kind of a pain too if they're not cut right. Nobody told me being in shape would make me spend more money on clothes, lol.

Wednesday (2/22/12)
10 Rounds:
-Chins (Various Grips, 3-5 reps, Fat Gripz)
-Pushups x 10 reps
-Squats x 15 reps

Friday (2/24/12)
Box Jumps x 4 songs (I think I did between 15-20 jumps, but I didn't count. Just stopped when I felt like it. Don't have a box, so I use the bed of a pickup)
Chins - 5x5
Pushups - 5x10

Quoteable "nobody told me getting in shape would make me spend more money on clothes". If this was twitter I would retweet.
