  4. What's that? A lot of places in Chch are gone now after all the earthquakes, if you have been here before it looks completely different now to what it used to be. Not all bad though, the temporary city centre is pretty funky Ah I think I actually meant the Lotus Heart... Haven't been to Christchurch since before the Quake, looking at Google Earth I can see that there are still whole blocks that need to be rebuilt
  5. David Wolfe is a Charlatan, that is only interested in selling you, ridiculously expensive supplements which he justifies with Myths and Legends... Ormus is a perfect example of this. He also isn't vegan, Ants, Deer Placenta and Colostrum are all part of his world. There are plenty of Vegan Dieticians out there, Jack Norris for example, who give excellent advice Personally I think it is a lot of hard work to get enough protein on a raw diet, unless you consume a lot of nuts and Spirulina etc, but from the posts you have above, it sounds like you are pretty into the whole raw idea.
  6. Monday night was hockey Training Tuesday night Training was as follows Incline Bench Warm up (Stretches, reps with the bar, reps with 60kgs) 1 x 8 x 100kgs 1 x 8 x 100kgs 1 x 7 x 100kgs 1 x 12 x 60kgs Lat Pulldowns wide grip Warm up 1 x 8 x 80kgs 1 x 6 x 100kgs 1 x 8 x 80kgs Dumbbell pullovers 1 x 8 x 27.5kgs 1 x 8 x 27.5kgs 1 x 8 x 27.5kgs Reverse Flyes Rhomboid version 1 x 10 x 15kgs 1 x 10 x 15kgs 1 x 10 x 15kgs Rope High Pulls 1 x 10 1 x 10 1 x 10 On the Advice of a couple of different Exercise physiologist I always do 4 times more back than chest... Helps keep my shoulders moving in the right plane etc Eating a lot more lentils (Dhal etc) and whole foods if it's good enough for Avi lehyani, it's good enough for me... Supplement wise, a bit of Nitrofusion with some berries and low fat soy or nut milk and BCAAS
  7. Peanut butter is something you shouldn't eat?! Blasphemy. Ha ha... Everything in moderation... Put it this way, if you lock me and a jar of peanut butter in a room, only one of us will come out... Trouble is, this can happen in about 15 mins...
  8. Fried potato products.... Hot Chips, Hash browns etc Peanut Butter, a little is ok, but I struggle with a little....
  9. Definitely! Is there Still loving hut etc in Christchurch?

  12. Being doing a weird split lately which is Day 1 Chest and Back Day 2 Arms and Legs So my week looks like this Monday - Field hockey training Tuesday - Day 1 Wednesday - Day 2 Thursday - Day 1 Friday Day - 2, plus stabilizers Saturday - Hockey game Sunday - Rest Been struggling with motivation lately as the injuries have kept flaring up (Legacy of Rugby) So lately been working hard on my Adductors and Quads etc to overcome Patellar Subluxation Feels like I've turned a corner and some great advice from an Exercise physiologist is keeping me together. Anyway here is last nights workout Only managed 2 visit to the gym so far this week as I pinched a Nerve at L3 at hockey on the weekend (I knew I shouldn't have twisted like that!) I've been wearing a TENS most of this week (Figured legs probably wasn't a great idea) so just did arms 3 x 8 Tricep Extensions SS Tricep Push downs 3 x 8 Flat Bar Push downs 3 x 8 sets 1 arm Tricep Push down Hammer Motion 3 Sets of body weigh dips 3 x 10 Rope Curls 3 x 21 Dumbell 21s (7x 17.5kg SS 7 x 15g SS 7 x 10kg) Then lots of Stretching, cobras etc
  13. Ah VE, so glad you still take the time to post, you have been a voice of reason and logic on here for years, when many of us, have given up and left it to the crackers!
  14. Wow I really don't post much these days, lol. Well shoulder is feeling better than it has in a long time, so pretty stoked about that. Still lifting of course... guess you could say I'm lifting smarter these days Still getting in about 4 gym sessions a week, mixed in with Mountain biking and Hockey (field) I'll post a few workouts when I get the chance...
  15. My only advice would be to mix in some stabilizer work every few weeks... Will help prevent injury and help save the joints when you get heavy. (Speaking from experience, having spent 2 years rehabing injuries which were made a lot worse by lifting heavy for years)
