  1. you can order bulk soy protein from proteinfactory.com for $5 a pound, or thereabouts, real cheap, and different flavors, etc
  2. I have been relying on the heavy overhead work I have been doing, as well as benching, and close grip benching. I throw in some occassional dips or other work, but the heavy compound lifting is working my triceps hard enough.
  3. No tattooist I have ever spoken with or gotten tattooed by knows anything much about veganism, but from the discussions I have had about tattoo ink I have never heard of anything non-vegan in it. I HAVE however heard of other vegans talk about non-vegan inks, but I am not sure which brands these are. Most of the guys I get tattooed by mix their own inks from the base pigment, and I don't think that there is anything animal based in the mix. I love the history of tattoos, getting tattooed, and being tattooed, and if there was something non-vegan about tattooing I would have to say that wouldn't stop me from getting tattooed. Maybe that makes me a bad vegan, but it's the truth.
  4. I don't think it is a bad font choice, it is fitting, looks like the type of style you would see for a HC or emo band. I would have used something different, but that is personal preference.
  5. that is impressive, the middle-finger-only chin sounds tough and a bit painful as well!
  6. I have been working my arms specifically, though I never used to, and am getting gains, mostly in strength, but in size as well. I am 6'6", and my biceps are a bit under 15", so they could be alot bigger with no problem. My triceps definately are the weak point, I have been working them and gaining much more strength and mass, but it is slow going on my long ass arms to get any real size. I am not too concerned though, as long as my strength keeps going up!
  7. I was under the impression that the ice will increase blood flow to the area, in order to warm it up, speeding up the healing process
  8. they are called supplements for a reason though, for those of us who can't get alot of sun (like me here in grey Cleveland, Ohio, with only a few months of beautful weather ), you can supplement your natural vitamin D production.
  9. Haven't done power cleans yet, though I have done hang cleans, though the most I have attempted has been 165 lb or so. Jerk 185 lb Push Press 145 lb 3x6 (never maxed out on this) Strict Press 135 lb (a while back, haven't tried this in a while) I have been working my overhead pressing, and I know I have more in my jerk, and plan to hit 200 lb in the next 4 - 6 weeks.
  10. I agree, though I am very skeptical of the current administration, so that tends to bend my beliefs a bit
  11. I like stonewall better, but in my experience it is love or hate with stonewall's jerquee. Some people love it, and others think it is gross.
  12. Here are some before and after pics, though the after pics are from 5 months ago, and I have gained at least 10 lb since then. This before pic was just over a year ago, when I had first started working out, and this was after I had gained a good amount of weight I used to be really really skinny. http://www.astepabovesigns.com/veganfitness/oldfront.jpg http://www.astepabovesigns.com/veganfitness/tfrontone7_05.jpg http://www.astepabovesigns.com/veganfitness/tback7_05.jpg Since the more recent photos I have gained a decent amount of muscle in my triceps, shoulders and chest...
  13. I agree, my mom drinks silk now, for christ's sake. And my sister too, both omnivores. I know lots of people who drink silk even though they don't give a rat's ass about animal welfare. Also, it is nice that it is non-GMO, and also that they support renewable resources (wind power).
  14. I understand what you are saying, but it isn't the point that you happened to be innocent, the point is you have a right to privacy.
  15. If they are tough, they are stale. When they are fresh they are real chewy. I love that stuff, I ordered a 5lb bag from veganessentials and it was gone within 2 weeks.
