  1. I've been eating a tablespoon of cocoa fat every day to increase HDL. I also get B12 shots regularly so that shouldn't be a problem. I guess I'm going to have to eat more quality raw stuff (and less nuts). D2? Was that a typo? Do you have any reliable info on Q10 (I haven't found any reliable sources)? I hardly know anything about this and it's not in the standard "vegan checklist"... Thanks for the info everybody...
  2. Yeah, I lift weights about 3 hours a week (mostly hypertrophy) and do Muay Thai and boxing about 3 hours a week. Until recently I've done a lot more but school and work has kept me awful busy. I think I'm in pretty good overall shape. I also ride a bike to get around. No walking or talking the bus/car. My diet has been pretty clean but not too much variety. I eat oats with soy milk in the morning a bag of trail mix (200gr of nuts + 200 grams raisins, I don't eat all of these though) at around 10 AM. From noon on I'll usually eat like 2 or three meals of legumes with a little veggies. (Like a garbanzo bean salad with cucumber and bell peppers or a bean burrito with corn and a little bit of veggies raw) and another bag of trail mix. Occasionally I'll eat fake meat with whole wheat noodles, but not often. I think I do well with cutting out processed crap and sweets (aka junkfood) but I have to eat a greater variety of legumes and more veggies. No, I weigh around 76 keys (or 170 US pounds) at 6 feet (or 180 cm). I'm pretty lean and somewhat muscular. Yes, see above. Yes, I take a daily pill of Vegan Society's "VEG 1" although I'll have to stop using it because it contains selenium. I also sporadically (every second day) take Solaray's Zinc Magnesium Calcium pill and get B 12 shots. I'm outdoor relatively often and definitely not a couch potato. No idea. Between 200 and 400 grams a day. I guess that's a lot. My total is at 139 (LDL is 87 and HDL is at 41). Is this supposed to add up? Does anyone know anything about Q 10. As far as I've read it's in a lot of vegan food but is destroyed by boiling or cooking.
  3. Hi everybody, my Mom (she's a doctrrr) recently did some tests to check certain blood levels and there seems to be quite a few problems... -HDL cholesterol is at 40 which my Mom says is too low (I read it's okay but since HDL is important for hormone prod. I guess I'll try to boost it) -Q 10 is at 400 (supposed to be 3 times as high) -Selenium is way too high (at 230, almost toxic) -D3, magnesium, and zinc are below requirements My question is if this is okay for vegans (since they often have different requirements) and if any of you get tested regularly or have any experiences/useful advice.

  6. Yeah, my off hand gets in my way too when doing deadlifts. I use the reverse grip (palm facing away) on this side. It works better, sometimes I still have to set the bar down early.

  7. Hi Brada, Boy I've bee slacking at writing my progress down in here... I use DB for shrugs. I'm at 90 lbs per dumbbell now... I hurt my shoulder so that for a month now I haven't been able to bench press, shoulder press or do dips. For this reason I have split Routine B and added it to Routine A and C.

  10. Hi @ all, I got some questions about bench and shoulder press... My bench press really isn't going anywhere. I'm at a 70 pound dumbbell press now (3x5 reps), I've hardly made any progress during the last years. I used to do only the barbell variation with about 8-10 reps unsurprisingly I didn't get anywhere. I did try a lot of variations, right now I do a max of 5 reps I start with dumbbells on a flat bench and then go on to the smith machine and do incline press. I don't seem to use my triceps at all, only my chest (near the shoulders) feels sore sometimes on the next day. I was really happy about my shoulder press (I sit down leaning back very slightly) doing 3x10 reps at 65 pounds. Problem here is I can't get the 70 pound dumbbells into starting position. Just to heavy. I have similar problems with the incline bench (therefore the smith machine). I usually lay the DBs down on the floor and then snatch them up and press like hell till I'm in start position. I see guys just kick them off their thighs but this doesn't work for me. For some reason I can't nearly do that much weight when I use a barbell or the smith machine. I've seen people do a shoulder press where they turn the palms inwards and let the weight come all the way down to the shoulders. Isn't it bad for your joints to let your elbows lower than your shoulders? If not this could help me out...
  11. Hi everybody, I'm interested how much you guys/gals spend on food per month and maybe a rough overview... Do you buy a lot of organic stuff? A lot of supplements? Bars? Processed stuff? Fresh fruit/veggies? I guess I'll start with myself... I spend about $ 300 on food. I really watch have to watch my budget. I buy some organic stuff (mostly dried stuff like beans and rice) barely fresh stuff (expensive). I spend about $ 30 on protein powder (nutribiotic) and eat about 40 builder bars (which I get for $ 1 per piece). So thats 70 bucks per month on supplements and bars.
  12. Check out Ross' website. He's a fitness trainer for pro fighters, used to be a pro boxer himself. I bought his "Infinite Intensity" book and used it a lot in my work outs. Great stuff. When lifting weight do compound movements with heavy weights (3-5 reps). This should add power.
  13. Kickboxing gals rule! I used to do Kickboxing, I went from light Contact Western (I did pretty good in comps) to Thai (no elbows though). I really love the sport, since I moved to the States (I'm from Germany) I haven't been into it (for lack of money and time)... just going to the gym right now... I got a little to hung up on getting big! Every time I see pics of people kickboxing I feel sorta bad... I used to run about every second morning and work cardio like crazy, now I'm just lifting. Gotta get in shape again so I can kick ass when I come back... Don't forget that to spend most of your time doing drills to work on your technique AND your conditioning if you wanna compete! I don't think you gotta worry about muscle imbalance unless you have a history of related problems... Edit: Do you know where I can get quality non-leather sparring gloves? I used to have pregan leather Twins...
  14. Yeah, it's the routine I do between the other 2. Also some isolation biceps and triceps (which I hardly use for bench press and dips, almost all chest and shoulders for these) so I can do 3 days a row...
  15. Haha, my girlfriends name is Dani also... ever since I got together with my love I'm turning into a real pus... I mean sensitive dude... lol.
