ignorance is definitely bliss my friend, over complicating things makes it a nightmare and ends up driving you nuts, well it does me anyway :D

True, mrbear666 just trying to make things a bit better as I am gaining the 2kg

On a positive note the pushups are coming along nicely, just gotta watch form, tight core, neutral pelvis and shoulder/scapula

Also I keep forgetting to put it in the log but I have started doing a few ab rollouts from knees when I am stretching after training to get my core strength up for the jerk

Do you notice any adverse effects from consuming too much folate?

Thanks MF.
Bloating and gas! could be the fiber that goes along with it though.
Do you consume much Folate MF? As a vegan I'm finding it hard not to.

What program are you tracking your nutrients/food journal in?

That cronometer site looks really interesting, I might do a trial week just to see if I'm missing out, or going overboard on any vitamins or minerals.

I enjoy some olympic lifting too, although I'm nowhere near your standard. I'll keep an eye on this journal for inspiration.

406% of carbs, nice ;).
Also impressed by your workout, do you do long rests between each set?

Hey Guys thanks for the comments, very much appreciated.

I've been very busy this last while and will be very busy the next two weeks but while I have a chance I'll update the log some bit
C.O. The site I'm analysing the nutrition on is http://cronometer.com/ I don't really track(cos I don't log it daily) as so much I use it to see what I am lacking
The values are % of minimum and then when red appears you have exceeded the recommended daily allowance
Yesterday I was super lazy and had beans and rice for the three meals!
This was great for lysine but not so great for selenium. Vitamin E and Calcium weren't that great either. Actually anyone have any ideas for vitamin E I'm finding that quite hard
I ate too much Manganese, magnesium, folate, fiber and sodium. But I've looked thoroughly on the net and found no evidence of people overdosing on vitamins and minerals from plants. Also the fiber and philates(spelling) reduce absorption, either that or I'm growing a tumor(folates) and building up mineral toxicity! lets hope not!

On the positive side my omega ratio has improved and I'm eating more lysine(not really that much fun and I'm doubtful of any real benefit)

The two kilos have already gone on, mostly fat, I'm putting that down to the extra beans(rice) and rice(reduce wind)

Training wise I tested my maxes on Friday and got a 65kg snatch and a 80kg clean and Jerk :boxer:
AndiMoris thanks for the props but really I'm still a rank beginner, I've got a real long way to go.
From this week on I've started training at lunch times rather than afternoons as it is really eating into my college time too much
I'm aiming for 40mins Mon -Friday and ~2hrs on Saturday or Sunday

Sunday was swole day :)
OHP 10*10-7@ 35 Superseted with Rows 10*10-7@ 65

Yesterday was
squat 10@ 20,50,60,65,70,70,70,70 (I'm trying to widen my stance a bit so greasing the groove)
Jerk 3@ 20,30,40,50,55,60,65,65,60 (Hips not stable enough in the catch, Last month it was abs now its hips => Lunges!)
Michalina - Rest varies, from 2-5 mins, I usually take too long, good for strength but poor for work capacity, I'm trying to reduce it where possible, especially on the lunchtime trainings

AndiMorris I just checked out your log/tumbler your not far off me it you take into account bodyweight, I'll be checking out your log for inspiration! And fair play for being able to handle crossfit, some serious work capacity needed for that
