Hello fellow health minded Vegans!
My name is Evan. I live in Portland Oregon and have been a vegan for about a year now. I'm a bigtime car guy, if anyone on here is into cars hit me up some time or Facespace me or something! I attend PCC full time working toward degrees in Philosophy and Education. I've always been interested in Nutrition & Fitness, I even worked at a Bodybuilding supplement distributor for a brief period.
Historically I've always been in good shape. I was very active as a youth played lots of sports etc.
After highschool I dropped most sports in favor of books and weights. I've been in and out of the gym over the last 10 years (I'm 26) but I've always had a weight set at home in the past. I've been training at the 24hour in the Pearl since June. I initially lost a lot of fat and felt really good about that but in the last month I feel like my progress has stalled out and I'm just maintaining. My current workouts are usually an hour long with at least 3/4 of it spent on the weights, about 4-5 days a week.
Split as follows: with a little bit of core thrown in everyday to breakup big sets.
Arms - Bi's Tri-s
Chest/ Most upper body pushing movements shoulders etc.
Back/ Most upper body pulling movements shoulders traps etc.
Maybe about a total of 1-1.5hours cardio total over a weeks period borken up between days randomly at the end of a workout or a short jog on the weekend with my wife.
Current goals are to get a decent job that I can have while in school so I can afford to put on muscle
If I'm going to put on muscle I need to eat more and that ain't cheap! Currently I'm about 190lbs I'd like to get to 205 (at about the same bodyfat) by January if
I can get the funds..
