  2. I think it would work. You may want to make some handles out of PVC. Handles might be easier on your hands. For more ideas look here. http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/shenandoah/Grunt/Bodyweight.html http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/shenandoah/Grunt/Misc.html I made some adjustable ones out of webbing for about $10-$15.

  4. Here are a couple of good sites: http://pushups.yuku.com/ http://jackkingsgym.wordpress.com/
  5. I have been debating this w/ family and friends and would like to get your input. Is it better (kills less animals and harms the environment less) to buy shoes that use recycled leather (supposedly processed in an environmentaly friendly way)...or to buy synthetic shoes? Which do you think would result in the most dead animals and harm to the environment? Thanks
  6. Hey guys, Do you know any good sprouting resources? I have read good things about sprouting, but have also read it is dangerous, so am looking for some good, trustworthy advice? Thanks
  7. Glad you are trying veganism. To be honest you do not sound like a hardgainer, but you can find lots of infirmation about hardgainers at ironaddicts.com Good luck, Veg
  8. I feel your pain. I have been at it for approximately 20 years w/ nothing really to show for it. I have gained and lost 20 pounds or more many times, but always end up where I started. The gain was usually half muscle and half fat. Whe n I dieted off the fat the muscle would go w/ it. But I enjoy working out and the search for the "holy grail" is kind of fun. You might find some answers here: http://www.ironaddicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9696&highlight=skinny-fat search "skinny-fat", hardgainer, and ectomorph on that site. There is a ton of info. or here: http://www.higher-faster-sports.com/skinnyfatecto2.html I made as good, if not better gains, w/ bodyweight training than weights, so I would say either can work. I am currently experimenting w/ VRT/DVR training. My results so far are promising.
  9. If someone just wanted to add 10-15 pounds of muscle and lose some fat would they eat the same way as someone who was trying to get "magazine" size? Would they need to eat a lot more protein, etc. in their diet, or could they achieve their goal w/ a more moderate approach?
  10. I have not seen him posting and he has not updated his MNP site since December. Thanks, Veg
  11. To hear some tell it hemp protein is the gold standard of proteins. Is it any better than other vegan proteins? How much should you consume a day to get benefits from it? I just got some and like the taste, but it costs a lot more than rice or pea protein. Have you guys found it is worth the extra cost? Have you found you can lower your overall protein consumption because hemp is better used by the body? Thanks, Veg
  12. Thank you for the replies. J-Roc, I do not train to failure, but approach it. I am adding reps on a near weekly basis.
  13. Thanks for the replies. J-Roc, I am 5'10 140. When I have cut before I have sometimes limited fat, but mostly just eat less. Looking at my first post I am not getting a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.
  14. protein - 100g - 125g fat - 75g-100g carbs - rest carbs
  15. Meal One: I usually start off my day w/ fruit (various kinds) and about an hour latter have a protein pudding (usually pea and rice protein, but sometimes hemp) that has ground flaxseed and/or shredded coconut in it. Meal Two: Some type of beans or lentils, some type of nuts or seeds and veggies Meal Three: See Meal two Meal Four: Similar to Meals Two and Three, but w/ different legume and nut/seed choices. I also might have potatoes, bread or some other carb at this meal. Meal Five (don't always eat this meal): Sometimes a protein pudding, but more often a meal similar to Meal Four. I probably am getting 110-120 grams of protein and 60-80 grams of fat a day. The rest is from carbs. I usually workout every other day. I only use bodyweight exercises along w/ some DVR's and Isometrics. And I know it is coming, so let me tell you I lifted weights for approximately 14 years w/ little or no results. I actually have gained more muscle since dropping the weights. I am not looking to get HOOOUGE. A 10-15 pound gain would be great. I have bulked in the past. I gained approximately 20 pounds. I figure half of that was muscle, but when I tried to cut the fat I lost the muscle, too. Thanks again for any help.
