Newbie (1/14)



  1. Currently battling illness and major deadlines, but I've been doing sets of 30 push ups whenever I feel up for it/aren't busy panicking.
  2. Not at all; first I badly tore a quad running after a pie (long story), then when I attempted to return to running, I irritated a sack of fluid in my knee (the scientific name escapes me, begins with a b). This went "untreated" because it was originally diagnosed as a torn meniscus. Because I was'nt running, I was'nt lifting and things went downhill from there. Anyway, on to today's update (technically yesterday's) 1 "3's and 3's" more specifically: 1x10 overhead shoulder press 1x10 lat pulldown 1x10 machine shoulder press 1x10 wieght machine row 1x10 back delt fly 1x4 wide grip pullups 1x10 front raises 1x10 lat pulldown 1x10 machine shoulder press 1x10 machine row 1x10 back delt fly 1x10 dumbell shrugs 1x10 lateral raise 1x10 lat pulldown 1x10 machine shoulder press 1x10 machine row 1x10 back delt fly 40 seconds of the farmer's walk Ideally each group is done as a super set with 15 minutes of interval work to cap it all.
  3. Sadly, I fail at training today because my planned bike ride was cut off by a near collision with a Hummer. However, I found some delicious vegan ribblet...thingies. I will post a link/more definite info as soon as I discover it. Was surprisingly sore from yesterday, which does not bode well for my future endeavors...
  4. Hello all! SBH here to document his voyage back into the light of full fitness from an injury plauged nightmare lasting about 3 months. Objectives to be able to run 5 miles in under 34 minutes be able to do three sets of 10 pull-ups in 20 minutes gain as much muscle as possible With that in mind, I have devised my workout plan and the vague outlines of a nutrition plan. These I shall post later. For today's entry: 2.05 miles in 14 minutes 45 minutes on a climbing wall (mostly doing easy stuff) 3 sets of 30 on those "perfect push up" devices (the ones that force your hands to rotate) Anyway, feel free to offer suggestions, advice, questions or anything else.
  5. Good stuff. What particular topics have you researched? Also, I like the quote in your sig; sadly I fall into the former category... Anyway, becoming vegetarian is most assuredly a good call from any perspective. I hope it works out for you and that you eventually decide to go vegan. I know that both choices were some of the best ones I've ever made. Best of luck!
  6. http://users.tinyonline.co.uk/richieev/tp/ I found an article on this in an old national geographic and was wondering if anyone had done it/heard of it.
  7. Indeed, working out early makes you feel utterly jacked. I used to wake up at 5 am and either play tennis or lift; it always gave me a buzz lasting at least until noon.
  8. Greetings all, just thought I'd say hi. I'm a borderline vegan (read: my supply of soymilk was temporarily severed so I've been seduced back to the regular kind) who has been weight training for two years and running for 6. And now for some random trivia: Favorite film: Star Trek First Contact Favorite band: Beatles Favorite exercises: hammer curls, pull ups and long distance runs I look forward to joining such an awesome collective of people. Kudos to anyone who can identify the cult TV show my screen name is a reference to... EDIT: for those that want to know now...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFHlJ2voJHY
