Hey Alex!

After I started my new job in November I became a little lazy. Additionally I tried going raw for some time (which caused some problems with my partner :( ), lost 3-4 kilos and some power.
My weight is now 86kg and I am still improving my techniques at the rings and bars.
I will shoot some pics the next days.
I still work on cross, flag, l-seat, lever, handstand, one-legged squats, muscle-up and bw-butterflies.
Of course I still do yoga.
I look forward towards spring.
Concerning the visit: We actually would love going to the scottish highlands and visit you and your WG, but since I want to visit the US in late summer for vegan-vacation I do not think I have enough time and money to go to scotland as well. :cry:

I just shot a few pics during my training.
I stopped using the thera-tubes to reduce my bw during the execises. It is a little bit harder that way but I like it better that way because I really know exactly where I am. And actually I am a absolute beginner concerning ringtraining :wink:
The pistols with additional weight are damn hard (Bigbwii, you know what I mean 8) )
I train hard as often as I can and I get better.

Nice one Flanders.
Interesting to hear you went raw too. See my post "Gorilla reloaded" for a little bit on my experience - it was positive, though I plateaued. Reckon it's healthy to cycle diet and training routine. Time to build some size now!
Have a good one,
G

Ok, I am back at it!
I joined Bigbwiis contest and will post my log for this here as well.

What Are Your Short Term Goals:
Get better on every exercise I do and eat as raw as possible (started a raw week yesterday)

What Are Your Long Term Goals:
Put some raw muscles on


Yesterday I ate the following:
2 apples
3 bananas
2 hands sundried dates
2 kiwis
1 avocado
1 hand of raw hazelnuts
1 hand of sundried wineberries
A salad (broccoli, 2 bananas, olive oil, seasalt, 1 grapefruit, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/2 chinese cabbage, 1 fennel, handfull of raw shredded flax seeds, 1/2 cucumber)

This actually is what I usually eat every day,

At 8.35 p.m. I went upstairs and trained about 30 minutes.
After a short warm-up I did the following exercises:
iron cross (supported) + chin-ups, handstand, pistols with added weight, push-ups keeping one arm straight, "roll-outs" at the rings + bw-rowing (both at the rings).
I usually make 6-12 reps and 1-2 sets keeping the rests as short as possible because it is still damn cold on our attic.

I feel great today :bodybuilding: and will add a training for the not-so-tired muscle-groups at 8.30 p.m. again.

I just did a quick but hard training upstairs and here are some pics:
Rocky-Poster as additional motivation...

Here you can see how I mounted the rings.

Half the way to one of my training goals - the iron cross.

Handstand push-ups - I am still working on imporving my free handstand to do the push-ups free.

BW-butterflies

Here you can see how the roof is built. Made of solid wood and hardly any nails used.

Chin-ups at the roof beam:

I am raw for seven days now and I feel great. Need less sleep.
My gf still feels sick and is already asleep. Hopefully she feels better tomorrow!

If you can improve at the same rate as normal beginners you're really gonna be strong considering you starting point

Actually I am quite sure that the detox I am in makes great gains impossible right now. But I am improving. And even if it is slow progress - it is still progress.

My gf tainted Marla and me with a 1-day-virus which made me vomit saturday night. I was raw for 11 days. That evening a friend from New York visited us and I ate some tofu-sausages and fried potatoes. Later that evening I was "punished" for this by vomiting after visiting a friend of mine at his house. I felt really bad the next few days and had big troubles eating anything heavy. Especially my favorite fruit avocado gave me a very sick and full feeling.
I was not able to train at all since saturday but today I will give it a try.

Hey folks!
As you can see...

Image

...I am still skinny (about 80kg (175 lbs)) :red:
Right now it is really hard to find time for training. I really thought about training in the early morning hours but from my experience this is very tough (which I know should be another reason to do it...).
My diet is still about 90% raw with lots of fruit. I feel perfect eating mostly fruit and a salat for dinner.

Actually I talked long enough. Time to get into shape again.
For the beginning and to get used to use my muscles again I will do one max-set of every exercise every second day for 4 weeks:
1. pistols
2. iron-cross (rings)
3. push-ups (rings)
4. dips (rings)
5. rowing (rings)
6. l-seats (rings)
7. handstand push-ups

I will post a short comment on every workout including current bw here.
After new years I will probably buy myself a barbell for deadlifts, start doing 6-10 reps for 2-3 sets and split my routine.

Thanks Zack!

Training today (6:00 a.m.):
One max-set of every exercise below:
1. Pistols
2. iron-cross (rings)
3. dips (rings)
4. Chin-ups
5. handstand push-ups
6. l-seats (rings)
7. rowing (rings)
8. push-ups (rings)

It was kind of hard to get out of bed and into training. I did some squats and other gymnastik exercises to get the morning stiffness out of my body. After the workout I felt weak but right now (9:00 a.m.) I feel really good.
Morning weight was 174 lbs (79kg).
