  1. 300 euros a month, which is something like 350 dollars.
  2. Thank you for your answer. I'm trying to gain weight, but even maintaining it would be a great start.
  3. Hello. I have very active lifestyle and thus have a hard time with eating enough calories and protein during the day. Do you exercise without all those powders and flours? What are your main protein sources, what about high-calorie snacks? Currently I eat/drink soy products, other beans, nuts/seeds, dark pasta and plenty of oatmeal. The rest is just low-calorie, fruits and vegetables. How to improve from this? There's high-protein pasta, but it's not really an option... On a typical day, I consume about 200-250 grams of tofu, 100 grams of nuts/seeds and 7,5 dl of soy milk (with 525 calories, yumyum), so eating more nuts or drinking more calories doesn't seem reasonable either. Thanks for your suggestions. EDIT: forgot to mention textured soy products. I already use those, too :S
  4. Alpro soygurt got updated. Updates include less calories and less protein
  5. I would say no. It does have a noticeable effect, but based on my own experience, things will work out better in long term when one doesn't do it. Sure, doing six 12-rep sets instead of 3-5 sets felt quite awesome, but it turned out that I never fully recovered from my exercises, resulting in smaller lifts!
  6. Bench to 171, deadlift to 286 and bodyweight up to 165. New total 661 Thanks!
  7. Squat to 204 lbs and bench up to 160 lbs. Total 639. Thanks in advance.
  8. gender: male, bw: 160 lbs, squat: ??? lbs, dead: 275 lbs, bench: 154 lbs something to begin with
  9. My goal is to reach bodyweight of 80 kg (176 lbs) this year. In other words: gain 22 lbs.
  10. Heh. Perfect timing BodhiDave! I'm back! I got my old pics back online and even found some "unreleased" pictures. I don't have a scale or a camera now, but I'm probably somewhere between the first two picture sets atm.

  11. Damn. I ran into money problems and now I'm back in the point I started with. However, this was a positive experience. I'll be back
  12. Venetian Snares works sometimes. Otherwise I listen random music.
  13. Hello, I'm trying to build an initial program for myself. My current equipment is limited to an adjustable barbell, light dumbells and a pullup bar in the doorway. I've read about deadlifts, pullups and barbell bent-over rows. The doorway allows only narrow grip pullups and the barbell is 110 lbs max Am I missing something important on the back? Is there more bodyweight exercises for the back?
  14. Thanks. I'll try to get this thing going. I'm 5'11" and the starting weight was 143 lbs.
  15. My purprose isn't posting pics of my tummy, but these are the only photos I have atm. I'll try to get better shots for the updates. After two weeks of tummy building, the day I started exercising: (sorry) After two weeks of exercising: (sorry) Six weeks: 15 lbs gained, no pic yet
  16. Here is a picture of the problem area. Results of the training probably take much more time to show up, but some of you might guess why I'd be happy with some fat, too http://edu.koillismaa.fi/~ascizo/prob.jpg Yup, that's not the same arm in both pictures, but I didn't feel like playing more with a bad camera.
  17. Actually I'm not that worried about this anymore, since I'm a beginner, but I'll ask it anyway. Can 1,5 to 2 hour cardio 6 times a week be a showstopper for gaining muscle mass (or fat )? I'm not into gaining huge muscles, but I lost a big amount of mass from my arms because of some weeks without proper food and would like to get them in 'balance" with my other body parts. The cardio I'm doing is mostly walking, with jogging in the middle. In future it'll probably be mostly jogging. I definitely need this, because it's good for my appetite and mental balance. I've actually doubled my food intake since I started doing this I've been doing some strength training at the same time, but it's currently more learning than actual exercising. Oh. My goal is getting more fit, no bodybuilding or monster mass.
