The Life Post

#4 Postby LukeTaLife » Thu Jan 11, 2007 10:42 am

So it is 2:21am and I just got back from the gym and since I'm feeling very energized I thought I would write a bit to kill time.

Firstly Gym Wise

Seriously who would have thought lifting little black bars and various sized blue wheels on a thin piece of metal could be so much fun. Besides the fact I’m increasing in size, feeling healthier and soon will be benching Sir Robert Cheeke (maybe a slight to major over exaggeration) I really enjoy that during my workout seeesh I don't think about anything else.
For me it is a break from society and everything else going on in life.
I'm still the scrawniest guy in the gym but I know they could never represent the robot or the worm as well as me.
Ohhhhh and the mirrors.
The mirrors have made me realise I’m in serious need of an eyebrow waxing and a mullet is taking over my head, deviously suggesting that I need to purchase some acid wash jeans. I will rectify this problem tomorrow.
I think I have gone nearly every day for the last three months

The Current Program for Project “Luke Get Big”
Day 1

Chest
Bench Press 3 sets x 6 reps
Incline Press
That exercise where you push the two things together (you can tell I’m a seasoned veteran and even more exceptional explainer)

Shoulders
Shoulder Press
Flys?????
The one where you pull it up to your chest (this is now getting embarrassing)

Biceps
Ok well three other exercises

ABS – Til it hurts!

Day 2
Back 3 exercises
Legs 3 exercises
Triceps 3 exercises
ABS- Til it hurts

The things I’m worried about are
Am I working out too much?
Should I be changing my program?
As you can tell with the in depth analysis of names of the exercises I don’t know much

My eating/sleeping patterns might not be the best – due to holidays – I’ve been reacquainted with Pay TV sure its bad, but so addictive. TV has made me even lazier in the cooking category so basically I’m a slob

Regardless Lukes Daily eating consists of

11am – Organic Bix x 3

12:30 – the old wholemeal salad sandwich

2:00 – the leftover salad from the lunch in some delightfully toasted wholemeal bread (that’s right I’m all about the variation)

4:00 – might dabble in a one off tofutti cutie

7:30 – Well tonight it was a mock meal from White Lotus – (Sydney Vegan if your ever in Melbourne you must visit this place of love) – I went with the Dim Sims , Satay Chicken Vegetables and Lemon Chicken

10:00 Soy Protein shake with Soy Milk

Workout

12:00 Soy Protein shake with water

So really not much going on – now I know asking for suggestions is stupid – leafy greens and nuts is said on here so much that I’m almost turned off on them without going near them. So if I don’t get any bigger your all responsible!

Back to the Life of Luke

My friend has decided to give up 3 years of Veganism to concentrate on a life sucking on corpses. Although I may not show it – probably because he is massive and could crush me with his hand – I’m seriously so angry at this decision. How do you go from something that is so moral and compassionate to just drop these ideals in one day? There is nothing I can do and this is my response to this. I think anyone that had started reading this would have disappeared by now if not and anyone has anything to say on this issue or has been in a similar situation please tell me your reaction and/or outcome from this.

Well I think I’ve wasted enough of everyone’s time tonight with my banter. The positives include no actual paper was wasted the negatives the people who have read this may be crunching their fist and will be demanding that I gave 5 minutes of their life back

My Apologies
Luke

PS For someone studying to be a primary school teacher, you would think my grammar and spelling would be a lot better. Me too. They may not be able to read or write properly but ill make sure there will be a vegan army by the time I’m finished. For now ill just blame it on tiredness and typos

Good night!

That Exercise where you push the two things together

Sounds like Pec-Dec

The One where you pull it up to your chest

Hmmmm don't know about that one... Maybe Upright Rows

I change my program every 6 weeks or so, it stops me getting bored and it helps prevent a plateau....
If you are working out every day, you might want to consider throwing in a couple of rest days each week. Most of your muscle growth occurs when you are sleeping or resting...
I'll be sure to check out White Lotus when I come to Melbourne... I've been meaning to get down there for months to visit friends and to check out the Vegan Strength crew (I don't know any Vegans in Sydney that like to push around heavy things)
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?

They have regular lifting sessions, some of the guys are huge. They have a website, so if you google it you should be able to find all the info you need.
Good Sydney Vegan Restaurants I'd recommend.
Green Gourmet in Newtown (A little expensive if you go for the buffet, by the menu stuff isn't too bad, plus they have great desserts)
Green Palace in Newtown (Vegan Thai and pretty Good)
Emma's on Liberty (A Omni Lebanese place in Enmore, but there are heaps of Vegans options and the food is really good).

Hey,
Normally I'd jump at a Gym session, but I'm getting Tattoo's done on Friday afternoon, so I'm out of action for a while. If you're up for lunch or something instead let me know.
