You train at home?
What gear do you have? Bench i guess. Can you do dips? It's an excellent exercise.

The easiest way would be to eat high carb during the day (healthy, wholesome vegan food, nothing special) and add protein in the evening (tofu, seitan, soy protein etc.). Maybe some nuts an hour before sleeping, too. A muesli with soymilk is perfect for any time of the day.
No one said it would be easy.

yap i train at home. i've got a bench with various equipment.
hm, dips... is there a way to improvise a possibility to do them?

ah okay, hm maybe i can overbear myself to have a protein shake in the evening even if i'm already full.

alright, time for school, then weekend, yay! :P

which is about 2300 kcal.
i think i should intake at least 3000kcal a day including ~80-100 g of protein. my protein intake is my biggest problem. foods rich in protein make me full soooo quickly and that feeling lasts all day. so i have to decide between high caloric food and food high in protein which is quite bad i guess :roll:



Do you ever eat mixed nuts? That stuff is loaded with calories and protein

I ordered myself a skipping rope for warming up. i usually warmed up by doing sit-ups and push ups, but jump-roping is far better, isn't it?
hope i'm able to work out today because i'm soooo busy with work for school :? but my eating this weekend was quite good, yay!

Try eat nuts not until you're full, but stop before, That way they're digested abit faster. Also, eat them as a snack in the evening.

Rope skipping is great warm up!
And then some push ups and sit ups ;)

my lower back hurt a bit while doing the last 20 ones

dumbbell bench press 6,5kg*8*3 8kg*8*2
new personal best

barbell row 9,5*8*3 10,5*8*2
had trouble to keep my back straight, otherwise it worked fine

squats 14,5*8*3
had to quit after the first 3 sets because i started to see stars and my skinny legs didn't work anymore :x

crunches 10
ouch! hope i can increase to 20 next time i work out

thats it for today, only one question left.

Way to go! 8)

You have to flex your abs when you do push ups and concentrate on keeping yourself stiff and straight.

barbell row 9,5*8*3 10,5*8*2

That's the same for me. Keeping the back straight IS the hardest part on that exercise! That's why i do it AFTER pull ups, that way the lats are already a bit tired and i don't need such a heavy weight for rowing.

squats 14,5*8*3
had to quit after the first 3 sets because i started to see stars and my skinny legs didn't work anymore :x

:lol: That's normal ;) You pushed it hard, it's a good sign of your motivation :D Three sets are enough, by the way!
How heavy is your bar? How do you get 14,5kg? :?:

crunches 10
ouch! hope i can increase to 20 next time i work out

Why, ten is not bad. It's a sign you do them correctly ;) Maybe two sets á ten next time.

Stretch every muscle right after you worked it.

2 vegan döner (added beans, salad, onions and vegan tzaziki, hm delicious)
3 bottles of malt beer (yummy and lots of calories)
and now i will have a huge serving of wholemeal spaghetti with an aaaawesome sauce :P


my muscles already sore, i think thats a good sign...

Pushups, benches, rows, squats, and crunches all on the same day - that's an intense work out. I bet you really feel the burn. Good work on your 50 reps of pushups!

I got a pullup bar that installs in a doorway at a local sporting goods store for about $15 US. If you have a playground nearby with monkey bars, you might be able to do dips at the end of the bars

well,
there are no small flatbreads or pieces of it available so i have to eat them within 2 days and that results in eating döners all day :P
today i'll have something else )vegan sausages and spaghetti with salad) but i'll buy another flatbread for school tomorrow :lol:
malt beer has lots of calories and tastes yummy!
