@dresende As cool as that would be for us I feel it would be isolating vegans from competing with everyone else. We are looking rather to infiltrate a natural bodybuilding show and all compete together against other omnivores. That are about 15-20 of us on board so far. I need to get it organized and as soon as I do, we'll be updating on it regularly
@Mini Forklift Thanks mate. Hope you have a happy and safe one too. Here's to 2013!
Week 5 of 8 Recap (Final Mass Bulking Routine)
Clocking in at 208lbs in the am dry. Probably put on a couple of lbs on what I call a holiday bulk!
I usually compete at around 160-175lbs depending on how much muscle i've put on my frame. That being said, I will need to start slowing down my caloric intake come next week so drop weight gradually. No need to waste hard earned muscle tissue. I will probably start to gradually reintroduce some cardio as well. It all depends on where i'm at by mid january.

*Showed up the day after xmas to train which is usually an off day for me to make up for taking off on xmas and.. the gym was already closed since 5pm. Bummer! I didn't realize the hours would be shortened after xmas. Not making that mistake next week. Checked ahead on the hours for m-w
*Got xmas eve's workout in the day before and doubled up my routine on Saturday to make up for a forced day off.
Last workout of 2012 is on Monday and we are doing squats so rest assured it'll be a good one!!
Where do you get your protein?
But as long as people stay away from our cooler bags with our meals and not ask silly questions, we're all pretty tame
