  1. Okay cool thanks, I'll look in to it. Seen it mentioned but no idea what it is. Thanks
  2. Excellent, thanks. I have access to a machine so will mix up all the above. Thanks.
  3. Blimey, well you've obviously got natural tone which unfortunately I don't have. Another time consuming issue I have is trying to use free weights with the right technique. I'm okay with chest, legs but back is more difficult for me still. Can't manage pull ups yet so trying to master dumbbell row whilst keeping form. Also need to build the intensity, i'm fine with the first major muscle but after that i'm done and easily retire. One things for sure though, i'm going to reach my goal!
  4. Great thanks. I'll take this onboard and see how I get on. I've lost weight the wrong way in the past (i.e starving myself) but this time i'm determined to build muscle and it's a life long change. I'll do a photo each month to track progress. vegantri, how long had you been doing weights on those photo's? Even the first photo you've great definition, how long did that take and did you have natural toning when you started out? Fantastic progress though so thanks for the tips. Jay
  5. Sorry hadn't seen your message. I've been vegetarian for 15 years but vegan only two months since watching forks over knives. Been eating healthily for six weeks, was drinking/eating way too much beforehand.
  6. Here is the brutal truth of where i'm at today. I am 14st 10lbs and 30% body fat. I have been eating well for six weeks and initially lost 7lbs in the first two weeks but haven't lost since. I did change my diet after two weeks by introducing two protein shakes a day. My diet is usually: Nuts breakfast protein shake mid morning tofu salad lunch cashew nut green curry dinner protein shake 1 day off a week. I want to get to about 12% body fat and still build muscle so anyone who has done the same or can offer advice, it's really appreciated. Jay
  7. Here's the brutal truth of where i'm at. As stated i'm 27% body fat wanting to get down to 12% and build muscle at the same time. Tips and help is much appreciated. cheers The brutal truth

  10. So do you think my diet and programme fits to reducing body fat and gaining muscle? Could also introduce cardio? Or reduce my diet.
  11. Yeah that's the tricky bit, need to build muscles whilst losing body fat.
  12. Great advice thank you. I'll give all that a go and let you know how I get on. I definitely want to be defined but need to build muscle so guess it's a case if trial and error to get the balance. I'm 27% body fat so want that down to about 14% Thanks
  13. Great advice MF, thank you, ill take this onboard.
  14. Thanks for replying. Sorry bit confused. You referring to monday chest workout? Where does it have 4 reps? They're mainly between 10 - 15 reps with 4 sets on each. How does the diet look to you? To lose body fat and gain muscle? cheers Jay
