  1. Glad you had a good trip. Good luck with the surgeon tomorrow
  2. Thank you Veggieprincess My competitions are in September and October, I aim to do a couple of bodybuilding shows and have a powerlifting comp around the same time.

  3. I'll get some pics taken this week and post them up, still a couple of months out so not in any decent shape.... yet. Had a workout at the powerlifting club last night. Bench press - 60kg x 6 90kg x 3 122.5 x 3 x 6 sets - managed to get through the sets quite easily, next week I will start off heavier and try push through as many sets as i can Board press - 110kg x 5 x 2 sets 110kg x 3 - The first two sets were paused but not for long enough, the third set I tried for 2 full seconds at a dead stop which was very hard. Got a bit of help on the fourth rep and a lot on the fifth. Dumbell shoulder press - 37.5kg x 5 x 3 sets Deadlifts - 70kg x 8 x 3 sets Squats - 60kg x 8 90kg x 6 115kg x 8 x 3 sets - still not dropping fast enough, I need to get this right with the heavier weights so when I wear wraps I will be able to drop into the hole deep enough. My legs were so sore after the first set (shouldn't have squatted the previous day) and I struggled through the 3 sets. Diet Meal 1 - tempeh, hummus, spinach Meal 2 - homemade protein bar (I got some recipes from Mike Mahler for some protein bars) it had Sunwarrior powder, nut butter, ground flax seeds and almond milk. I crushed some fresh walnuts and also some wheatgrass and mixed it though before refridgerating it. They are nice. Meal 3 - Lentils, tomatoes, spinach and olive oil Meal 4 - Pre workout drink, carnitine, amino acids Meal 5 - Vega shake, chia seeds Meal 6 - vege burger wrap with hummus and spinach
  4. Mentzer is by far my favourite. He was overlooked horribly in his Olympia appearances and has one of the best physiques of all time in my opinion.
  5. I try to stay around the 2500 calorie mark at the moment but each day varies slightly. Trained at my parents garage gym yesterday. Speed bench press - bar x 20 60kg + 2 10kg chains x 3 x 8 sets Pullups - 6 x 3 sets Hang cleans - 60kg x 3 x 3 sets Squats - 60kg x 6 100kg x 3 140kg x 2 170kg x 1 - decided to try and go heavier for a change, felt pretty good, I could have probably gone a bit heavier Barbell calf raises - 60kg x 12 x 3 sets
  6. Are you cooking them properly? Try soaking them for a few days with a little bicarb, changing the water daily and then cook them. Shouldn't give you any problems after that
  7. Yeah I still cop some shit from friends of mine, mostly just on my facebook page and not to me personally. Most people I know are supportive and very accepting so the criticism i get is usually just tongue in cheek. My guess is that most wouldn't say things to my face because I'm tougher than most people i know
  8. You've ventured into the darkside Pat!! Be careful or else you might start doing concentration curls and leg extensions and turn into a bodybuilder!! You're right about the club, just got to take the good with the bad. Powerlifting club training last night Trunk twists - 10 x 2 sets Close grip bench press - 50kg x 6 80kg x 6 x 6 sets Deadlifts - 60kg x 8 90kg x 5 127.5kg x 8 x 3 sets Pullups - 10 x 3 sets Squats - 50kg x 8 65kg x 8 x 3 sets Glute/ham raises - 10 x 3 sets Meal 1 - Tempeh, spinach, olive oil Meal 2 - Vega shake Meal 3 - Lentil burger, spinach, chia seeds Meal 4 - Preworkout drink, carnitine, yerba mate, amino acids (during training) Meal 5 - Lord of the Fries chips (a bit of a cheat meal - no more from now on till the comp) Meal 6 - Sunwarrior shake, added some more aminos and creatine

  10. Thanks MaryStella, I'll make sure I keep posting progress pics (not food pics) from now on It's just Almond, Brazil and Cashew nut spread. It's nice but not so much after eating a whole jar in a day Haha.. there normally isn't any need to!!
  11. Oooh wedding cake planning!! That's something I'm glad I was never involved in when I was married Sounds like a nice looking cake though
  12. Moving is probably a bigger workout anyway ha?
  13. Maybe you're in a different frame of mind when you're packing so things you don't need then you need when you get to your destination
  14. We're not sure yet, still waiting on the Germans. Between 6 of us (there were 7 but we took the average of two guys) we ate over 56000 calories for the day. Crazy stuff!! Here's some of what I ate Vegan sheppards pie with a bit of tomato sauce http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4185.jpg Dark chocolate http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4187.jpg That's 4 vege schnitzels ( I had 8 in total) http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4184.jpg ABC spread, vege chips and rice cakes http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4179.jpg Spinach leaves and hummus ( I ate that with the schnitzels) http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4183.jpg Sheppards pie - I still like this! http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4180.jpg I still like these too! http://i664.photobucket.com/albums/vv3/Kirk1000/IMG_4181.jpg
  15. Yeah was not feeling good afterwards, was probably a stupid thing to do considering I have a comp in about 10 weeks. It was MVS versus the German vegan strength team eating comp
  16. Heres the list of what I ate for the eating comp - didn't quite make it to 10000 calories but stuffed myself full anyway.

  17. Just had a workout at my parents garage gym, was meant to train at the powerlifting club but am short of time as I'm doing this eating comp and need all the time I can get - the powerlifting club is a real drag sometimes. I like having the MVS guys there but if we're all doing different things, it can get a bit boring. Anyway, I had no spotter so took it a little easier, especially on the bench press. Bench press - 40kg x 8 60kg x 3 90kg x 3 120kg x 3 x 6 sets - should have tried a few kgs heavier but doesn't matter, did better than last week Floor press - 100kg x 5 x 3 sets Military press - 65kg x 5 x 2 sets 80kg x 3 Squats - 60kg x 8 110kg x 6 x 3 sets Deadlifts - 60kg x 10 x 3 sets Still doing this eating comp so I'll post what I've eaten tomorrow, trying hard to get to 10000 calories..
  18. Had a workout Saturday morning, had the weekend off work so after I trained it was good to have a break. Also I needed to prepare for the Australia vs Germany eating contest which I'm doing today - I'll post my results after everyone is finished. Anyway Saturdays workout was the following - Bench press - Bar x 20 60kg x 10 100kg + 2 minibands x 3 x 3 sets Speed bench - 60kg + 2 mini bands x 3 x 5 sets Pullups - 6 x 3 sets Lunges - 60kg x 5 x 3 sets Squats - 100kg x 5 x 3 sets Close grip chinups - 6 x 3 sets Dumbell skullcrushers - 22kg + 2 minibands x 6 x 3 sets Barbell calf raises - 60kg x 12 x 3 sets
  19. Session at the powerlifting club last night. Trunk twists - 10 x 3 sets Close grip bench press - 60kg x 6 x 6 sets Deadlifts - 60kg x 8 90kg x 5 120kg x 8 x 3 sets Pullups - 10 x 2 sets - couldn't do a third set, have a bruised finger, aggravated by deadlifts and struggled to hang from chinup bar. Did a very light set of dumbell row to compensate, not the same. Squats - 40kg x 10 60kg x 8 x 3 sets Glute ham raises - 10 x 3 sets Diet Meal 1 - Tempeh, spinach/parsley mix (steamed), macadamia oil Meal 2 - Vega shake Meal 3 - Same as meal 1 Meal 4 - Pre workout drink, BCAA's, carnitine Meal 5 - 4 spirulina and 4 chlorella tabs straight after workout, Sunwarrior shake 15mins later Meal 6 - Lentil and chickpea mix, spinach, olive oil
  20. Yeah it is nothing to worry about, kind of a detoxifying effect.
  21. Yeah just a little workout in that it isn't a heavy session. There's more volume though but it feels pretty easy. I forgot to add calves - I trained them too. Single leg calf raise - 15kg plate x 12 x 3 sets That was 9 exercises, probably a bit too much volume
  22. Yeah and it makes you legs hurt for days haha!!
