  1. Thanks for your ninja and guitar complimentz! Thanks for examining the site

     

    Shucks I haven't played Ninja Gaiden yet. I hear it's really good. I played Tenchu 3 on the PS2, but found the combat to be rather poor so I stopped playing it, the AI isn't very good either sadly. MGS3 was ace, and he is kind of a ninja. My main game is the Tekken series. I also really like Devil May Cry 3, Manhunt, the old Zelda games (new ones are getting a bit cheesy), Soul Calibur, Resident Evil 4 (the old ones are dry as hell but RE:4 kicks ass)... What other games are you into?

     

     

    I love Dead to Rights for X-Box, My favorite game.

     

    My second Favorite game is The legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64. I have been playing the zelda series since the first one. I stopped after I beat Majora Mask though, they did seem to get a bit cheesy. I think Gannon is cool, I guess I always liked the bad guys, go figure.

    I love Ninja Gaidens too, I have beat them all from the first one on the classic nintend to the newest on the x-box. Great stuff.

     

     

    I also love Mario Brothers, I think Mario is a pimp. Luigi too. My girlfriend like Yoshi. LOL.

     

    Halo is another great game, I can't wait for the third one to come out. Okay I bet we have everybody in the forums calling us geeks by now.

  2. I've actually dislocated a little over 10 times...maybe more but some were sublocations...some from lifting, one time lifting up my cousin and another time wrestling...its not so bad though since it hurt less everytime you do it, but then its more likely to happen again. The last one happened on the lat pull and that was my first dislocation after coming out of an almost 2 year athletic retirement...figured the rest would have strengthened it and it might have but obviously not enough...how do dumbells feel for you. I could only really do the bar on decline...other then maxing out everything was dumbells

     

    Wow thats crazy. I read your myspace and I can see how your shoulders got so banged up, you are a beast in the gym. Very impressive lifts bro!

  3. I had the same problem with the shoulders...my cure was to only use a flat bar on decline and my monthly attempt at bench maxing...the rest of my chest workouts consisted of flat dumbell presses and dumbell incline presses(45degree bench). When I wanted to bench max I'd season in an easy bench day about 4 days before my max...then two days before I'd do a fairly heavy day(meaning I would do about 2 reps less per set from what I would rep out at)..I also rarely did lat pull which helped alot. I focused much more on bent over rows and really only did lat pull to warm up and impress little kids...oh and do dislocate my shoulder(I've dislocated 3 times on the machine)

     

    I tell ya, its not fun watching out for your shoulders!!! I can't believe that you dislocated it three times, that is nuts!!! I think I might start benching on the flat bench once a month, just to see if it will help improve my chest, but so far doing inclines and weighted dips are really producing some good gains in my chest.

  4. Richard,

     

    It looks like you are about to kick that woman directly into the building. It's like it is a freeze-frame from a movie and if I were to un-pause it she'd just go flying.

     

    Not that I wish for that to happen, just looks like she's on the verge of being dealt wit.

     

    Haha, I saw that too, and when you pointed that out it really cracked me up.

  5. Hey dude, welcome to the site. I know what you mean about regretting not changing lifestyle sooner, it sucks to look back at myself at how ignorant I was really and how different I am now. But you live and learn or whatever booyah. Within mixed martial arts, which areas are you specialized in? Or is it MMA as a single technique?

     

    Hey man, its nice meeting you. I guess there is no looking back, at least we are in the right now… now if only the general population could follow our lead then it would make life a lot easier!

     

    The MMA I am learning is at a center where we have like multiple coaches that specialize in different disciplines. I basically learn wrestling, judo, jiu jitsu, boxing and kickboxing separately, and then we tie it all together in the ring for MMA fights. It gets kinda physical there, but we are all just doing it for sport, I am big into anti-violence outside of the training center.

     

    Are you into MMA at all?

     

    Kick ass man. I am into martial arts of basically any kind, I am fascinated. I haven't had any real training, and I can't really fight for shit. But I do stretching and practice various cool techniques just for fun, and I have a slam-man for beating hell out of. I would like to learn actual applied self-defense techniques to help out in a real dangerous situation. I mainly do what I do for the hell of it / fun of it. I am big anti-violence too, which many people find ironic given that I am so interested in it (martial arts, videogames, movies blah). Here's an example of my stupid-ass 'martial arts'. I guess the kicks I practice are tae kwon do inspired more than anything right now, although I like to practice some thai style push kicks and knees and elbows, they look awesome.

    Man thats awesome! I checked your website too, you are awesome on the guitar. Your kicks are awesome, and its awesome that you have a ninja outfit. I play a lot of video games too, have you ever played Ninja Gaiden on the x-box? I have played all the Ninja Gaiden games for the classic nintendo as well.

  6. Welcome!

     

    I echo the others when saying you're huge!

     

    Could I just ask a few stats? What are your numbers in the big three, and how tall are you? Over on www.veganfitness.net, in the power and strength section there is a strength table, so if you post your numbers, I'll get them chalked up

    Actually I haven’t done any flat bench or squats in some time now, my shoulder was nagging me on flat bench so I switched to incline press, and I stopped squatting because my leg development was where I wanted it. I put my workout in the link below, it has the weights and such. I do my benches and rows and deadlifts on a smith machine to help my joints. Its not a nornam smith machine, its a rotary smith machine, so its a lot hard then the normal, more like free weights just safer. Seems to be working well so far.

  7. Yeah, totally. I've been hoping for many months that more forum members will start getting together. I've had GREAT times with veggymeggy, vamprilla, Hero, loveliberate, VeganEssentials, andesuma, and others over the past year.

     

    Let's get more people hanging out! I met some of wannalift's friends here in Eugene, and she said he was pretty cool. He was also one of the first guys ever to write to me when I started my website 4 years ago.

     

    There are others in that area too I believe. Have fun!

     

    Its cool to meet fellow Vegans in the area.

  8. joey,

    I live in the Pittsburgh area and Powerlift and teach (used to) martial arts. we should hang out. welcome aboard.

    ~david

     

    I actually live about an hour out of Pittsburgh. Have you heard of Indiana University of PA? I live around that area. Its just generally easier to say pittsburgh because everybody knows where that is. I may be going to Pitt in the fall for a Masters, so if I do I will definetely have to hang out.

     

    Go Steelers!

  9. Welcome, man. You're huge.

     

    Thanks man, its good to be here! We gotta prove that meat doesn't build muscle. When I am at the gym I get stuff like, "he must eat meat to get so big" and "he must take steriods since to get that strong without meat" and its nuts. I try to tell people in the gym I eat lots of soy and veggies and fruit, I lift 5 days a week of compound, multijoint lifts, and I sleep well. Its all about dedication and people on here are living proof that meat free builds beautiful bodies!

  10. Hey big is that a picture of you (on the bottom) now as a fruititarian?

     

    Yep, the video in my post is from a couple of years ago when I first was I just became a Vegan... I weighed 280 then. The picture in my avatar is from me a month ago where I my weight is 233. I was a powerlifter but I switched over to bodybuilding because I want to be strong and lean. Right now I am about 228 and my goal is to get down in the 195-190 range.

  11. Welcome! Nice Bench!

     

    Thanks! I am glad you checked out the video! Its was cool we used bumper plates. That video was taken a couple years ago, so I am much leaner and stronger now.

  12. holy cannoli nice vegan guns!

     

    pleasure to have your guns (ehem, i mean you) on board.

     

    Why thank you!!! Glad you like my veggie powered arms!!!

     

    Is that you in your avatar? You are one very attractive vegan!

     

    Its very nice meeting you!

  13. Welcome to the site Joey!

    Thanks man, I love it around here already, it rocks. I am excited to learn from everyone here and lend some of my knowledge as well.

  15. Hi my name is Joey and I am from the Pittsburgh PA area. I stopped eating animals 3 years ago, and to be honest, I am sad that I didn't do it sooner. Just a little about myself, I am into bodybuilding, powerlifting, and mixed martial arts. I am between jobs now, but I have a grad degree in business. Below is a video of me hitting some bumper plates in a bench contest at my college.
