@RC & Mini Forklift , thanks!! Trying my best


Haven't updated here in awhile but i've still been training hard


I've also been hard at work organizing our team of vegan athletes. Vegan Olympia 2013 will be the largest gathering of vegan muscle at one show that I know of!! There are 20+ confirmed competitors, many of whom are forum members and well known. We are going to make this an annual event also! We are not accepting any more team members for the 2013 comp however come fall, we will be accepting new members for the 2014 meet up. For more info, check us out at http://www.PlantBuilt.com


Ok, so here's my update.


I am currently 12 weeks out from competing. Phase 4 / 5 starts today. During the first 4 weeks, I will be attempting to train 2x a day. Since I was losing body fat rapidly, I slowed down the cutting process. I am guessing that i'm around 12% bf or less. Here are my stats weighted out against the last measurements on February 2nd.


May 5th measurements:


Weight 186.5lb (-11lb)

Bodyfat: 12%


May 5th 2013's measurements (current)

Calves: 15.75" Same

Quads: 24.5" -(2.5")

Hips: 39.5" (-1.5"!)

Waist: 32.75" (-1.75"!)

Arms: 15"(+.5)

Forearms: 12"(-.5)

Chest: 42"(-2.5)

Shoulders: 48(-.5")


Current workout 8 reps, 4 sets per exercises, drop sets on the last 2 sets for each exercise Adding in cardio again to start losing more bodyfat again. Cleaned diet up even more.
