  1. I've been watching so many videos of Ronnie, Jay, Evan Centopani etc lately. Love them!
  2. I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of tofu or tempeh either. I don't mind tofu with BBQ or satay sauce.
  3. You must eat a lot of fruit. Oats, sweet potato, beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, peanut butter.
  4. ZMA supplement helped me. Also gives you pretty crazy dreams..
  5. Training for the busy person - http://www.jimwendler.com/2011/12/training-templates-that-kick-ass-2-daysweek-part-one/ http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/2_times_a_week_for_twice_the_gains
  6. Soooo. Hello Currently following Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 and loving it. I'm doing more assistance exercises, especially for upper body, lately. The focus is and always will be on strength, but having a big set of guns can't hurt Body weight is still around 108 kg. Maybe less fat these days though. This year is going to be all about consistency and maxing out hardly ever. Just going to stick with this program for as long as possible, because I think it's great. I've already hit some rep PR's in a few lifts. Things are going well.
  7. If you write what you eat in an average day, we can offer suggestions on how to make it fully vegan so that you still get the same calories etc.
  8. Yeah the main priority is strength, but lately I have been doing more assistance/hypertrophy work to gain some more muscle. I can still see abs, so I either have big abs, or my fat level is still reasonably low.
  9. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v52/essjayyell/10to11.jpg Photo on the right was today.
  10. I'm doing Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 so deads have their own day.
  11. Yeah something like 5x5. Google "Greyskull LP Routine". I could send you the e-book if you want.
  12. This is a photo of a gym buddy of mine. Notice how big his abs are. He is a super strong guy, does squats, deadlifts, bench etc with heavy heavy weights & fairly low reps, plus a few assistance exercises. He is also very meticulous when it comes to diet and it shows with how lean he is. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v52/essjayyell/317756_2463115068353_1566536388_2569723_1201077879_n.jpg
  13. When I do direct ab work, I usually do things like hanging leg raises and ab wheel rollouts. Usually 3 sets of 10-12.
  14. When I was in the States a couple of years ago, I made a nut loaf, which everyone loved. We also had green bean casserole and other vegies. I think I also made smoked tofu, or maybe that was at Christmas.
  15. I like djshrew's advice. I would try learning some good vegan versions of the traditional Southern recipes and as long as they taste great, maybe make some to bring along to share with your family. I think one of the best ways to approach it is to show them all the things that you CAN eat as a vegan, as opposed to looking at it in terms of what you can't or won't eat now. For Vegercize, regarding your grandpa cooking spag bol for you - there's lots of veggie mince options over here. You might know about them already. Sanitarium make a good vegan one, which you can find in the fridge at most Coles or Woolworths. You could buy some of that and offer to help him cook and show that you can still have good old spag bol.
  16. At home Pros Can train any time of day Never have to wait to use equipment Can train without a shirt etc Cons Atmosphere might be less motivating Might have to keep buying weights as you get stronger Might not have anyone to spot you Gym Pros Large range of equipment Plenty of weight plates Always someone to spot you if you need it Atmosphere might be more motivating Cons Gym idiots Shit music Have to wear a shirt
  17. I'm 110.5 at the moment. I eat lots - 6 meals, 200g protein average, 3500-4000 calories. Lift heavy. edit: I tend to gain weight easily, so I don't go crazy with the calories. some days might only be 3000.
  18. Did you not notice that he incline benched 505 lbs? This was at the end of a workout after flat benching 600 lbs for 3 and close-grip benching 500 lbs...
