  1. After you are all done, just grab the 30kg DBs and see if you can get a 1 max rep out of them. If you can, then it won't be long before you can do them! If not, then you have some work to do ahead of you. No big whop, cuz you will get there. Still, to know that you can at least do 1 rep, the prospect of doing 8 or 9 are just around the corner (and that would do wonders for your mental esteem - and where the mind goes, the body follows). Thanks for sharing that, I will try that next week!

As you may know, this is my favourite routine out of all 5 days of Layne Nortons P.H.A.T. and I was really happy with todays workout. The highlight was going up in the seated dumbbell presses. (I hope I can reach 30kg dumbbells, correction: I KNOW I WILL REACH THEM, as long as I stay determined).
  3. I don't know what kind of protein powder you get, but this would be HORRIFIC with Gemma protein powder... Mine is really nice; it is also like a pudding (thick shake) texture even when there is like 500ml (16oz) of water mixed with the one scoop!
  4. Hi welcome Ceri, it's great to see another fellow Aussie on the forums!
  5. Good to see you back on logging your workouts Rob! I couldn't imagine having to come back from an injury, it must be dreadful. All in all, I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery!
  6. I agree with Baby Hercules; television shows LIKE Captain Planet taught me to care for the environment and the animals in it, thus planting a seed of compassion in me, which has lead me to become vegan.
  7. Strange. the 80/10/10 diet is about performance. I can train 2 times a day on it and it's the only way to recover from a 2 hours judo training in a couple of hours (to train a second time). May be the fruit you ate was not sweet enough? Or you underate? It's easy to undereat on this diet because it takes a great amount of fruit to match the energy equivalence of dry food. Yeah, I agree. The 80/10/10 diet (actually a lifestyle and not a diet) requires you to consume a MINIMUM of 5 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight. If you don't get this you can become glycogen deficient rather easy!
  8. Hey guys, it is the new year now (where I live) So Happy New Year to all the great people on this forum; I wish you all the best in this year to come and all the years that will follow it!
  9.

  13. Today: New Year's Eve and also happens to be my rest day!
  14. Macros for the day: 3,216 calories, 259g protein, 73g fat, 355g carbs, 77g fibre, 3,359mg sodium They are really low because all i did besides train was sit at my desk and watch The Simpsons.
  15. I wish sports nutrition shops and shops in general for that matter sold Clif Builders and Vega Bars over here in Australia. It would maake life (well eating) so much easier and convenient. They manage to have every other protein bar in the world over here, except for vegan ones

  19. Thanks! My mother is doing pretty good, every now and then the thing pops up, but since i have been eating more food it hasn't really bothered her. I think it had something to do with me undereating and undersleeping, however now that i am eating big, sleeping big, and taking flaxmeal things are looking less bleak.
