  1. Did you actually paint the last one? Either way, it rocks. Absolutely.
  2. I definitely can relate. Most of my classmates still play those jokes on me, quite maturely. Luckily its more for the laughs than viciously.
  3. And twice as hard it was Felt really good on todays training. Switched my cardio to not get bored, and had my gms trainer prrmise me to begin squats and bench presses next week, together with legs. No bad day even if my stats still suck. 12/02/08 Cardio: 45 minutes on treadmill Weights: Pecs: 3x12-10-8 (8-10-12kg) Triceps 3x8 (8-7-7kg) Biceps 3x8 (7-7-5 kg) Shoulders: 3x12-10-8 (8-10.-12 kg?) Back machine 3x 12-10-8 (25-30-35 kg)
  4. Now I definitely feel like getting a couple of them for going to the gym... Pondering.
  5. I sleep on my back, my arms usually at my heads sides (as if I was surrendering to the cops in an action movie, to be clear ) While I still have some issues with my ack if I stand or run without sitting for a while, everyone is amused when seeing me sleeping.
  6. Still havent built my body at all, but I had some fat loss, and a strength increase since I went veg. Does it count as vegan built?
  7. 09/02/08 Cardio: 45 minutes of cyclette, diff. 5/12 Felt like crap afterwards. Had a fever on Sunday, so I skipped training today, even if I feel better already. Tomorrow I will have to train twice as hard
  8. Well, wasnt hoping for such a warm welcome but, being one of the newest around (and the first to see the post)... Thanks man!
  9. 08/02/08 Cardio: 20 mins basketball game (4vs4) 20 mins resistance running in the morning 24 mins cyclette in the afternoon
  10. You mean a soy protein based diet works, when taken from tofu and the similar? While Im cutting now, I think thats the choice I would do later on.
  11. 07/02/08 First posi sign of the training: a girl I barely know (friend of a friend) called me today for a date While I dont know how much of it depended on the bare 1 or 2 kg I lost (but it seems to look like more. I had a male friend of mine ask me if I was eating flesh again because of my arms. Felt nice as well.) Surely its a major psych boost. 45 mins cardio cyclette elliptical (diff 5/12) This time I managed it some better. Still, if Im not keeping concentration somewhere else, I feel my legs exploding. When I leave the cyclette I barely feel to have done some training. Abs: 3x8 on an inclined bench blocking my legs. 3x12 vertical, legs bent. 3x10 vertical, legs straight.
  12. Cant help you much with the fats in itself, but I think with most products sold in the US you can read their content here: http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/ Depends on how much you trust your gov then
  13. Well, I know its proably a question you have heard 1000 times Robert, but does Vega have a EU seller outside of the UK? I have begun my cutting fase quite well and this already got me thinking on bulking...
  14. 06/02/08 Cardio: 45 minutes cyclette, diff. 4/12 Pecs: 8-10-12 (12,10,8 kg) Bic: 10-8-6 (4-7 kg) Tri: 12-10-8-6 (4-7 kg) Shoulders: 6-8-10-12 (up to 10 kg) Back machine 12-10-6 (25-35 kg) Spent the whole day running from a place to the other, so that should add to the cardio
  15. 05/02/08 Got to cardio completely relaxed today, as I overslept lessons and stayed home for once - probably tomorrow as well, since I had to do a work on an author that was explained today. As I felt good, I incresed the difficulty on the elliptical. While I do my training I can go to feel quite sore in the legs and back and fear walking back home, but I always feel perfect and fresh when I finish. Thats annoying, I think I could do more if my body wasnt so undecided whether it hurts or not. 45 mins of cardio, cyclette, diff. 5/12 3x12 abs, vertical, legs bent 3x10 abs, vertical, straight legs
  16. 04/02/08 Got to the gym somehow late, and that damaged my meal frequency - will have to get dinner at 21.00 at least. I finally managed a cardio training I was happy with, and since I got out without any sores or pains (until now) I can plan on getting it to 1 hour in the days I dont lift. For squats and bench presses, today I had problems lifting 7 kg as doing biceps, so I guess I better hide somewhere. I only have problems with my right arm, and thats kinda strange, since its my main arm. With my left I can go up to more, but I dont feel like growing only a side of my body 45 mins of cardio on the cyclette, diff.4/12 Biceps 3x8 (4kg) Pecs 3x8-10-12 (12-10-8?kg) Triceps 3x8-10-10 (7kg, stopped the last series as it hurt) Shoulders 3x8-10-12 (7-9-12kg) Back machine 3x8-10-12 (25,30,35kg) As soon as I get rid of the weights under 10kg (probably after the cutting) starting squats and a serious strength training, this is mostly to hinder muscle loss.
  17. X2 For myself at least, t was way more comfortable to begin with excluding what I could exclude, and work my way towards 100 percent vegetables, at my personal pace, of course. Said that.. Welcome
  18. As someoe wh is, like Rob said, new to vegan and BBing, a warm welcome
  19. Well, from my point of view such a law could be justified for the aing or for people with certain diseases. I can understand how a gym owners life is less of a stress when he doesnt have to worry about the health of every aging or severely obese person in his environment. But then, its applied badly. Thanks for the suggestions, I seriously appreciate some input Bodyweight squats would be lifting my own weight? @Gaia, I kinda need the fat loss, at least psychologically, but I surly liked the idea of the goal being set every time you get to the gym, and I think I am going to do that as well - have only four to six weeks of cardio if I work properly. Thanks to everyone, btw 02/02/08 Training: pure cardio (45 minutes of cyclette, diff. 4/12) Actually a personal record, but I didnt manage it that good, I was distracted and went slower than I wanted to. Spent the rest of the day, up to 2 am, running and walking from a place to the other still, so I guess it still counts.
  20. Compliments on the training program Uh, I wish we had all these vegan specialties.. I actualy cant buy anything made from Hemp here. Is it meant to be a good source of nutrients, or just a variation on taste?
  21. Gyms wont accept you without a certificate from a doctor which attests to your health in Italy. Since its quite hard to die with 18 in a gym, the only use of this law is to get money to doctors - and the doctor really didnt visit me before handing me the certificate, or even see me before. I just handed the money to the secretary and got mine, written nd signed from her. Im not happy with Italy at all, I am planning to move to Germany soon.
  22. Thanks for the replies, just needed to know I wasnt going to need new kidneys anytime soon
  23. Thans for the support I fixed a goal every three months, the next one being losing 5 to ten kgs. I know a body fat exam would be way neater to know if the program works, I just cant afford 50 euros for that by now.. The ultimate goal would be a BFP in the single digits and strength enough to follow a complete program of squats and weights, as my strength is quite ridiculous now. As I say that I just lost a days worth of cardio because I needed a doctor certificate to train - whch is really just a bureaucracy excuse to give a doctor 100 euros without even being visited. Crap.
  24. Hello to everyone. Just having a doubt: I am following a 2400 cal diet, and since I just started out, I was following a classic 50c-30p-20f. Still, when I get around my 2400 calories, I always manage the percentual, but I get about 130 plus proteins a day, today even 150. When reading around the forum I found out most stay at 100 when in a cutting phase - am I either counting wrong, or hurting my organs badly? Should I just go on "empty" calories at some point at the day to manage to get to 2400 and getting the right percentual without getting double as much protein as most say I should? Edit: corrected a typo, it was 150, not 170 (luckily)
  25. Chumbawumba - Unilever Voice of A Generation - My Generation Good Clean Fun - Vegan Revolution Draft Dodger Anthem Plus a lot of italian punk, and I mostly train when listening to Mogwais old post rock stuff, or Port Royal. Strange as I always prefer energy-laden songs except when I actually use my energies
