Hi everyone!!

So a little background about myself. I'm a powerlifter, and a carnivore turned vegan. I am loving this lifestyle and have felt the best that I have in 10 years. So glad to have found this website so that I can get to know other vegans who lead a fit life.

I want to prove to everyone who doubts veganism that you CAN be strong, lean, and mean WITHOUT meat and/or animal products!

I compete in the 60kg division, and my goals for my upcoming meet in June are:

Squat: 292
Bench: 145
Deadlift: 314

Eventually, I would like to turn a 750 lb. total into a 800 lb. total before I turn 23 (3 years from now!)


I recently started working with Brandon Lilly and his "Cube Method", and I am loving it so far. I'm on day #2 of Week 2. Roughly 14 weeks out from my meet, and I'm very excited to see how it turns out. :)


Anyway, follow along if you'd like, and I will try to update as frequently as I can! Benching in about 2 hours. Time to fuel up. ;)

THE CUBE - Week #2 Day #2


Pause Bench (1″ off chest):

bar x lots

65×5
85×2
90×8



Full-Range Bench:

100x5x5



Incline DB Press:

25′s x2x20



Close-Grip Bench:

75×12
65x2x12



Band Flyes

3×15 (monster mini)



Tricep Band Pressdown:

1×100



NOTES:

So. This session could have gone a lot better, but last night at work we were having fitness challenges at the gym, which I participated in to gain more participation from members…so I ended up doing:

2 min plank
2 sets of chin-ups
25 pushups
23 reps with 75 lbs. on the bench press

Didn’t miss any weight or reps on training today, but it was definitely a little harder since I was a bit fatigued, and I haven’t eaten much today.

BUT no rest for the wicked! And crying is for pussies. :wink:

Rest tomorrow, and SO PSYCHED for squats on Friday!!

Cool to have you aboard here. Cool also that you're a female powerlifter! How long have you been at it?

Yeah, hell yeah, a female power lifter. You definitely should made some friends here with some of our iron women on the forum. You definitely get some respect from me and many of us guys here as well.

Thanks for the replies everyone!! I haven't gotten around to posting in here for a little while since things have been a bit crazy with life/work and it slipped my mind, but I will be back to posting in here now. :D

Deadlifts in about an hour or so. :)

Throw a 45 pound plate underneath your snatch grip deads for the 2" block. That's what I used to do on the cube!

Great looking log, The Cube is a great system. Simple but effective.

As Dylan said above, I hope your training is still going to plan. According to the photo you posted it looks like it is, that's a strong looking core !!

14wks out from your meet in March, did you end up going through with it? Interested to hear how you got on and found the competition side of things. Look forward to reading your updates again soon, regards MF.
