Hi Chris, and thanks for the welcome!
As of right now, I'm training at a very beginner level. The schedule I have worked out looks something like this:
30 minutes of HIIT ... running, cycling, elliptical .... as long as it's cardio.
(I actually managed to run 2.93 miles in 30 minutes this morning, due to the intervals I was running ... not exactly lightning speed, but fast for me! Kind of a PR, I guess.
Cardio is followed by upper body training:
Pushups (standard and diamond ... no knees! To failure ... right now I'm at 2 sets of 10 ... low, but again, still good for me personally)
Overhead triceps extensions
30 minutes of HIIT again
Followed by lower body training:
Cable push-backs (for glutes)
Hanging leg raises
weighted standard crunches
Day 3: REST!
And then start all over again, rotating every three days.
As far as my protein goes, I'm a fan of tofu, tempeh and seitan at mealtimes ... and then I love almonds and walnuts as snacks. I also bring a serving of Good For Life's RAW protein to the gym with me, for after cardio and before lifting. Right now I've got the Chai flavor ... love it!
We live in a suburban area of a pretty big city, so finding vegan fare is relatively easy. There's two health food stores nearby, and there's actually an Asian grocery near my folks that sells sea vegetables and umeboshi plums for a whole lot less than the health food stores around here. So when I go visit (it's about an hour away) I stock up!
Anyway, I hope I haven't rambled! Have a fabulous Friday everyone!
