  1. Hi guys! Thanks for your warm welcome! I'm glad there are some soccer fans among you. That picture was taken last month at Hampden park in Glasgow, Scotland. Thanks to a friend I went to see Italy (my national team) train!
  2. thanks Jonathan! I must admit is difficult to stick to a diet but I'm doing the best I can! My routine is divided in 2 days with 9 exercises each; I guess they're your usuals: squats, deadlifts, shoulder press etc. At the end of the session I do calves, heavy on day 1 and light on day 2. I think I'm doing ok so far, but as you pointed out, it occurred to me that 90 mins may be too long. I takes me a while to do negative chins but my session also includes warm-up and some abs.
  3. Just wanted to introduce myself to this great community. I've been a vegan for 8 months and started training 2 months ago. I've been in touch with Pete from veganbodybuilding.org who has helped me start a new routine. I look forward to learn more from you about this great way of living & training!
  4. Hi all, I've just joined this fantastic community and would like your advice. I've been a vegan for 8 months and been training for just over 2. I've been helped a great deal by Pete from veganbodybuilding.org; he's the coolest vegan I've met so far! He suggested a new routine which I'm doing twice a week for about 90 minutes per session. I'd like to train more but, due to my job, is sometimes difficult. However I've just joined a new company which has a gym so I'll be hopefully be able to squeeze in extra sessions. I sometimes worry that I'm not eating enough to grow, so I'll write my typical day and would like your opinion. Breakfast: wholemeal cereals with soy milk, jam on wheatbread 10-11am: 1 banana 60 grams of cashew nut & almonds Lunch: this can obviously vary: if I'm working I'm limited with what's on offer at the canteen; usually I have plate of mixed beans, veg curry or nut burger, potatoes and broccoli on the side. At home I may have some pasta, rice, cous-cous or quinoa 3-4pm: wholemeal pitta/bread stuffed with tofu, carrots and peanut butter, 1-2 pieces of fruit Dinner: mock meat (nut cutlets, pies etc.) veggie on the side some houmous, 1-2 pieces of fruit 10-11pm: Isolate soya protein shake mixed with 200ml (0.05 fl oz) and a banana. I aim at drinking at least 3-4 litres (0.8-1 fl oz) of water each day. I've put on about 2kgs (4.4 lbs) in just over 2 months and it shows a bit; however I'm not sure if I should have improved more. My weight is now 80 kg (176lbs) and I'm 6ft tall. I'd very much appreciate any suggestion regarding my diet and training...thanks!
