  1. So it's been a week since I last worked out, and my diet has included a lot of Polish chocolate. I hate when family visits from the homeland lol Been walking and driving a lot around the city showing him around, so there hasn't been much energy for a workout. Tomorrow I'm definitely gonna get a workout in though In general, pretty well. Ever since I added stretching after every workout, it's been feeling nicer. Although last week after deadlifting, the next day it was bugging me. The time before it was fine, so I'll chalk it up to bad form In what way? Stretching, squatting? I have no idea man lol How do people ride such long trips (50km+)? After about 10km my ass hurts so bad
  2. On Wed I did legs, which was mostly squat, sumo squat, lunges, wall sits, calve rasies, a touch of plyometrics, and afterwards a short bike ride. The next 2 days, my calves, hamstrings, and groin were on fire. I don't think it's ever been this sore. I couldn't flatten my foot when walking, so basically I walked around on my toes. It was definitely interesting going to the toilet. On Sat it finally healed up enough that I could walk, but calves still hurt with every step. Even today they're still a little sore, almost a full week later. Had no idea my calves would get this ruined.
  3. I lived in the Bogatynia area until the age of 6 before moving to Canada I assumed he meant iHerb, but I could be wrong.
  4. Yay, another vegan Polak I was so surprised to see how vegan friendly Poland has become. Even a tiny village of 2500 where I lived had meat substitutes in a small corner shop. Where abouts in the motherland are you?
  5. The thing is, it happens even with no weight. Even if I do a simple stretch (like the image below), I still get rounding. http://www.concept2.com.au/app_cmslib/media/lib/0705/m9192_v1_stretch2.jpg Found a few videos on YT which seem to be decent advice.
  6. I was literally just about to say the same thing. I don't live in Finland, but I know someone who does and she told me about how good iherb was. I've made about 6 orders with them (I'm in Canada though), and have yet to have an issue with them
  7. I never really checked how my back looked during a squat in the past, but recently I did because I was curious, and noticed my lower back curves when my ass gets to the grass. I've read it's because of tight hips and hamstrings. For about the last couple months I've done a lot of stretching (not just for better squats, more so for general health), but it's still curving. I've also tried to widen my stance, but no luck. Any ideas what can be done to prevent the curving? http://www.eatdrinklift.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/butt-wink.jpg
  8. Ok I'll post recent happenings, since someone did ask 1. Went back to a workout I did over 10 years ago, because it seemed to work for me back than. I did the traditional chest/tri's, back/bi's, legs, shoulders/forearms, rest. Later decided to switch it up a little. I read how Schwarzenegger would superset with chest and back exercises, so I decided to give that a try. Now I'm doing chest/back, tri's/bi's, shoulders/forearms, legs. 2. I've started jump rope again, unfortunately my right knee has not been kind ever since I injured it out 2 years ago. I make sure to land soft, but after a 14min jump, the knee hurts the next day, and still hurt about a week later. The other day I managed to do 16mins, the next day my knee is fine, but a few days later it starts to hurt. I'm definitely not jumping as much as I'd like because of that. 3. I have been biking a lot more too, easier on the knees I noticed. Went for a ride, got lost a couple times, ending up doing 20km (which is a lot for me, I am a fat ass and all lol) 4. My leg workouts are very light, mostly plyometrics. Burpees, jump squats, jump lunges, swiss ball squats, and wall squat isometric, etc. I'm slowly adding weight to my squats, but my priority is getting my hip and core area more flexible and strong before attempting anything crazy. 5. My heavy bag has unfortunately been in storage. I moved into a condo and can't really hang it anywhere, but can't seem to sell it either (I got a great deal and went through a lot to get it, so I'm a little attached to it). 6. I'm stretching a lot more than usual. I've come to the conclusion my knee and back issues are because of tightness and my body doesn't perform to it's full potential because of that. I'm mostly sticking with traditional yoga poses, pigeon pose is my favorite 7. Nutrition wise, I haven't been eating too well in the past, probably one reason I've become such a chubbo. A lot of bread, processed crap, eating heavy late in the day. But ever since I got back into the gym, I've been eating more clean. Usually around 1-2cups of beans and/or lentils with 1-2cups rice, protein shakes, apples, bananas - all daily now. Began taking 5000iu vitamin D because the recommended nmol/L is 75-250, and mine was 28. B12 recommended is 198-615, mine was 458, but I'm taking 2000 mcg daily just for a little kick.
  9. Pretty interesting article I came across today. http://www.ergo-log.com/rice-protein-works-just-as-well-as-whey-for-bodybuilders.html
  10. Peanut butter is something you shouldn't eat?! Blasphemy.
  11. Oh ya, I forgot about soda. There were many times I'd drink 2L by myself in a day.
  12. I bought cake frosting the other day, ate about half of the thing that day - I regret nothing
  13. Here are 3 videos I came across tonight. Gonna get these are mp3's and listen to them while I workout This is my 1000th posts.... woo
