  1. Thanks a lot for the advise. I probably can't take protein before I work out because I usually go straight from class to the gym. As for after, It's probably closer to 45 minutes that I get home by bus from my campus. Free weights are awesome but intimidating for me because it's laughable how much I can currently lift. Last time I checked I think it was maybe 60 pounds or a little less bench pressed.

  2. Vegan with a Vengeance is really good. I also make a lot of things out of "Vegan World". Also, my mom bought me Alicia Silverstone's vegan cookbook "The Kind Diet". Some of the ingredients are a little exotic, but the recipes sound really good and there are some macrobiotic recipes thrown in too.

  3. Let me preface by saying that I'm glad I found resources connected with becoming strong while sticking with your ethics. I am sure many people here were tired at one point of hearing "Where do you get your protein", followed by "You'll turn into a twig". This isn't a problem for me because I was already pretty skinny ("Scrawny" if you're an asshole) before I went vegan close to a year ago. I joined this forum for help with getting into weight training and making progress in looking and becoming physically stronger. I'm not really interested in bulking up like Arnold or anything, just to get in very fit shape.

     

     

    The only questions I have so far are:

     

    1) when's the best time to take a protein supplement?

     

    and 2) Is there a big advantage between choosing free weights over weight machines? There's a gym at my school and I've mostly been using the machines so far, because there's less of a risk of me performing the exercise wrong and hurting myself.
