  1. Thanks for the advice guys. tomorrow i am going to to start going more strict on my diet, i am going to do a simple version of the thrive diet i think.I ordered some more berry flavor vega shake (have tried natural and vanilla)..need more ground flax seed and of course the fruits and veggies...busy shopping day ahead for tomorrow.
  2. todays report.... Squats 50 pounds 5x5 Overhead Press 45 pounds 5x5 Deadlift 90 pounds 1x5 Chin/Pull Ups 5,6,3 couldn't do one pull up so i used the assistance chin up bar and spotted myself 120 pounds for these..need alot of work here. Prone Bridge 3x 30 seconds. 15 minutes of shooting baskets afterwards
  3. Today i started the stronglifts program, i am going to give that a shot.. Squats i did 5X5 @ 45 pounds (bar only) Bench press 5x5 @ 45 pounds Inverted Rows 7,5,3 Reverse crunches 12,12,12 Push Ups 10, 6 Mod push ups 10 My upper body is definitely the weak point, it will probably be a couple weeks before i start testing myself with the squats..Bench Press was pretty easy but like with the squats it is about developing proper form right now so so i just got go with the flow.Inverted Rows really showed me where my weak point is, my shoulder and back muscles.I am definitely going to love and hate doing these (and chin ups for that matter), because they are going to be a struggle but a struggle well worth it. Still need to work on my diet, I plan on getting the Vega Meal shake thing on Friday...I have Hemp powder, flax seed, wheatgrass powder to add to my diet.need to cut out the junk food and eat more veggies.drink more water and cut the soda.
  4. Just finished up an impromptu Dumbbell workout..just some basics like Bicep Curls, Squats, Overhead press, Tricep extensions and plank rows..did three sets each and feel pretty good after, even if i am fighting a cold today..

  7. I plan on using this to show my progress in the upcoming weeks as i lose bodyfat and increase muscle mass.I got a membership at LA Fitness and I have my own Gold's Gym Adjustable Dumbbell set for home to use.My overall goals right now are basically to get more healthy and to go almost completely Raw for my food intake.I have made mass improvements over the past year going from 250 on Jan. 1, 2010 (the day i turned vegetarian) to 174 (Late July).I have gained a little since then but i am eager and willing to get back on track.
