hey :)

thanks! at the moment I use soy protein from pro-sana (vanilla). the taste isn't the best, so I might try your brand as soon as my powder is used up.

edit: not bad, the stuff is quite cheap 8) I'll give it a try!

thanks, I think I've had them before. they're a bit expensive, though :? but as long as you don't miss meals on a regular basis it should be okay :wink:

barbell military press: 17x5x2, 22x5x2, 29,5x5x2 30,5x5x1 (next time 30,5x5x2 instead of 29,5) great! the last rep was a battle of at least 10 seconds, though :D

deadlifts: 30,5x8x2 68x5x2 I don't think I'll increase the weight in the near future, scared of hurting my back ...

some bizep- and hammercurls

My sister, a personal fitness trainer, said the lower body (legs mostly) need 4 days of rest and upper body needs 2 days of rest after a great workout.

I don't know what other professionals think about this - but it works for me!

I just read this yesterday (I don't know if it is just for women, or applies to both men and women)

From Dr. Nick (www.drnickevans.com) in an article from Oxygen magazine (women's fitness) re OVERTRAINING. If you answer yes to more than half of the following question, you are overtraining and need to give your body a week of complete rest. To avoid overtraining, keep your workouts to less than an hour and be sure to allow adequate recovery periods in your workout schedule.
1. Do you constantly feel tired?
2. Do your workouts lack energy?
3. Are you lacking motivation?
4. Have you lost strength?
5. Have you lost muscle size?
6. Are your muscles always tender?
7. Has your appetitie decreased?
8. Do you have trouble sleeping?

hey thanks! :)
I don't suffer from many of these problems - only the sore muscles.
most probably my body just needs to get used to being tortured more often :P
