  1. Those pictures look great, now I really want to catch up with my forearms as well. Not sure how I'm going to train them though... Dorian Yates advises to NOT train them because they will get trained enough while training your other muscle groups. I have a wrist roller which gave me an extreme pump, I think I will pick that one up again. How many times a week should I train them?
  2. Hi Carre, What is your height, weight and calorie intake?
  3. Hi all, Do you use pre-workout supplements? Why? Is it good for you, bad for you, or neither? I use pre-workout supplements at the moment, but I have a feeling they can't be healthy...
  4. Hi Chris, I'm from Eindhoven. Look up the vegan groups "Vegan Nederland" and "Vegan Nederland en Belgie" on Facebook and get connected!
  5. I wanted to comment, but Manatee basically said it all. However, I would train more than 2 times per week (make it 4) and I don't ever do cardio after my weight training, always on resting days. Count your calories and make sure you eat like 500 calories more than you need to make sure you grow. If you don't grow, eat a bit more.
  6. I have the same problem, I'm so happen you asked this question on this forum and even more with the answers. Gonna start making those diet changes! I was already quitting coffee after this week and cutting down on gluten. I do not eat a lot of salt and I'm not sure about cutting down on raw veggies and soy...
  7. Hi K., Welcome! Did you find what you were looking for?
  8. I also don't do anything special after a junk meal. In some diets it's even recommended to have one junk meal per week or even a whole day of carb loading. Therefore don't sweat it when you eat something "bad" once in a while
  9. What is your fat percentage? Your overall body weight is not precise enough.
  10. Hey man, Whats up? Great to read that you're from The Netherlands (like me) and that you turned vegan after watching Gary Yourofsky on Youtube. I actually saw his speech last Saturday for the first time. Loved it! How is it going with your goals? I can help you out.
  11. Thanks a lot for posting this, he's pretty much my hero. Ill check it out when I'm at home. BigRed, are you the same Big Red from bodybuilding.com? If so, then you're the first bodybuilder I spoke to in my life
  12. Hallo Leo, Herzlich willkommen! How are things going nowadays? Did you "convert" any colleagues of yours?
  13. Thsi pretty much explains it all: http://www.vegetus.org/honey/honey.htm
  14. Never had it, but am definetely interested in trying it if I can find it...
  15. Hi all, What do you eat/drink before going to bed? "Normal" bodybuilders usually take in slow digesting protein, like casein. I currently drink a shake which consists of a banana, aloe vera, noni juice, soy protein powder and soy milk. I'm interested to read what you eat/drink to stimulate testosteron and prevent muscle loss!
  16. Never had that situation, may I ask what causes this?
  17. Hi Greg, Interesting story you got there. I'm also interested to know what your reasons are for your choices in the past . Any way, welcome to the forums!
  18. In theory it would be possible, just very hard to do. You would have to eat A LOT of food like tofu, tempeh and other bean and nut related foods. I choose not to make more of a hassle of my protein intake, so I use protein powders. Why shouldn't I?
  19. I also used it in the past before I was vegan. Back in the days we only had creatine monohydrate which wasn't a very good supplement. Nowadays you do have great creatine supplements and it's also added in a lot of other supplements (pre-workout, post-workout, etc.). I won't buy a creatine supplement, but if it's added in a supplement I would take for the other benefits, I take it as a plus!
  20. Hi Minna, good to have you here. I admire your strong personality and I hope you reach your goals!
  21. Hi everybody, I keep reading contradicting statements on protein intake for bodybuilders. The most common two I found are: - 1.5 gr protein per pound of body weight - 2 gr protein per kg of body weight Which is correct? I follow the first rule btw.
  22. Interested read though... Thanks for mentioning!
  23. Sounds great, I never had almond butter though. How much protein is in this sandwich?
