  1. The sledgehammering is going well, my technique is getting better and my forearms aren't completely dead anymore, like they were the first couple times. This is a killer workout if you go all out on every round. Best of all it is incredibly fun. Just go in to the woods and find some fallen trees, mounds of dirt, etc. I bought a sledge at Home Depot and it broke the first time out, so I went to Sears and bought a fiberglass one that is guaranteed forever.
  2. Hi. Welcome to the forum. I'm in Bucks County. I don't know about NO Xplode, but I did read some pretty negative stuff about NO supplements over at T-Nation. Maybe uou could try calling the company to find out if it's vegan?

  11. Cool. What type of training do you think you will start doing?
  12. Tamales are really good. They are a lot of work, but just make a few dozen at a time and freeze, you'll be alright.

  15. Hi. Congrats on becoming vegan. I would suggest reading Brendan Brazier's book Thrive. Go to your local bookstore tonight and buy it for fifteen bucks. It is well worth it. Try and focus on eating whole foods. I know from experience that it is way too easy to get caught up eating a lot of processed stuff that resembles food. Rippetoe's program looks pretty good. I do think that Mahler is the man, though. Right now I am doing HIIT with a sledgehammer thanks to a couple articles he wrote. I'd say pick something that you're gonna enjoy and be dedicated to. As long as your consistent I'd bet you'll make progress. I don't know anything about supplements. Maybe someone else can help you out there.
  16. Hi. Shana. How long have you been raw? Eating raw, or like 90% raw is something I aspire to, so thanks for the inspiration. If you don't have much equipment than you might as well focus on training with bodyweight skills or simple equipment like sandbags or sledgehammers. My girlfriend and I started training with an eight pound sledge a couple weeks ago. It is a lot of fun and an incredible workout. If you have access to a gym, then squats are the best IMO. If not, just do bodyweight squats. My gym only has Smith machines, so I opt for bodyweight squats, lunges, and step ups, as well as dumbbell squats and lunges. For muscle growth, try doing squats, pushups, pullups, dips, and bodyweight rows, and then progressing to harder variations of each. Or if that gets boring, experiment with more fun exercises like bearcrawls, tree climbing, sledgehammering, farmers walks, pushing a car around an empty lot, or whatever you can think of.
