  1. Hi, I am looking for some body building books/articles to help me out with setting up a good routine (on a weekly basis and changing phases on a monthly bases). I have been reading up on "Serious Strength Training" by Tudor O Bompa and found it interesting and a bit upsetting (the high protein/high fat, low carb diet suggested). Any opinions on this book? Any suggestions on what i should buy/read? I need help with the following: 1) what i should be eating and when (and the opposite: what i shouldnt be eating, and times of day i shouldnt be eating certain foods) 2) what muscles i should be working on in combination and how often 3) what phase of training i should be in (strength building/hypertrophy/anatomical adaptation/muscle definition/transition) and for how long Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Do any of you add the flavouring or extras? Any recommendations?
  3. wonderful. Thank you soooo much. Ordering 70/30 mixture.
  4. 16lbs cost me $30.95 for shipping and that covers brokerage/duty fees, ordering in bulk (16lbs) can help you save 5% off and another 5% when you use a discount code (check their forums for that) cant find the mixture. Could you link that to me?
  5. Hello everyone, just wanted to ask what your take is on Pea Protein in general, and Sunwarrior protein. Ive tried out a whole bunch of different vegan (non soy) protein, and ive settled with Now Pea Protein which has 28g of protein for a 33g serving. I get it here in Toronto for $27 taxes in and it comes in 907g containers. This comes out to 770 g of protein in each container. I use 2-3 scoops a day (each time mixing a scoop with a banana, creatine, and L-Glutamine) Ive heard of sunwarrior protein, and have been relunctant to pay more for less protein. in a 35g serving of sunwarrior, there is 25g of protein, and it would cost me $50 (if i buy 3 containers). Each container is 1000g, of which 715 are protein. The Now Pea Protein comes to $3.5 CDN for 100G of protein The Sunwarrior Protein comes to $7 CDN for 100G of protein A few question: 1)Is Sunwarrior still worth it? IF so so why? 2)Is Pea Protein fine to consume by itself? Complete protein? 3)When i make after workout shakes, i add a banana, water and Pea protein, tsp of creatine, tsp of l-glutamine. Is this ideal? I consume a shake right after working out. My goals are to get larger (muscle mass), and when my leg heals (pulled my psoas muscle) get leaner (drop my fat deposits). Im currently 6'4" 227lbs Thanks for you help in advance.
  6. 1 Month Update! So, this last month has been a month of improvement. 1)I have gained some weight 210ish lbs to 220lbs 2)Today i bench pressed on my third set 145lbs (never did that before) at 9 reps 3)I can barbell bicep curls at 75 lbs (3rd set at 8 reps) (never was able to do that either) Some things im not proud of: still have belly fat (I have an excuse... i have bursitis in my hip (still hurts and its been 4 weeks) and cant do any cardio because of it) I guess there will be time to shave that stuff off. http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/front.jpg http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/back.jpg http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/side.jpg

  8. Hi, im new to the forums, and wanted to post photos of where i am at now, and my progress. Ive been vegan for 8 years and vegetarian for 7 years before that. Im 28 and 6 foot 4 inches tall. Today i am 213 lbs. Over the years, (especially in University) i have been going back and forth with working out. I would get busy with exams, or get sick and i would stop working out for a few months. I then would get back into it for a few months, and then id stop. Now, ive decided to get more serious, and have been going to the gym 5-6 days a week (alternating cardio one day, strength training the other day). Ive been at it since the beginning of the year, and want to keep going. I will keep posting some new photos along the way. Want to get rid of my little bulge, and build up some more mass (not too much, but more then now). http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/0001_front.jpg http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/0001_side.jpg http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/0001_back.jpg http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af189/veganTRUTH/my%20progress/0001_pose.jpg
  9. No, never heard of him. Where do you work out? Im in the High Park area.
  10. What's your daily calorie intake? Though if your injured I wouldn't be looking to cut fat. Keep taking your protein and glutamine; certain amino acids will help increase healing along with vitamins A, B, C, & D as well as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, & zinc. i havent broken down my daily caloric intake in a while, but i eat a lot. I eat a low fat (hardly ever add oils) to my foods. I avoid junk, coffee, alcohol (most of the time). Dont smoke either.
  11. oh, dont know if im ready for that... i have a bit of a tire around the mid section (not huge, but not ripped like some people here)
