  2. Hey all, Dropped of the last two weeks due to work and family commitments. Diet was kept on check until the last 4 days. I wouldn't say I ate unclean/bad, but I did eat a bit over my caloric intake. At the end of the first month I weighed in at 90.5kg, dropped down from 95kg so pretty happy about that. Now with xmas on the way and have some time off, I'm back to it.
  3. Day 20 Got home after work and crashed for a bit, planned on going to the gym a couple of hours later. Woke up so wrecked and didn't feel I had the energy for a full body session. Glad I went. All my lifts went really well. Flat DB Bench - 70kg x6 70kg x6 70kg x6 70kg x6 70kg x5 Squat - 95kg x6 95kg x6 95kg x4 95kg x2 Deadlifts - 100kg x5 110kg x5 120kg x4 I felt I could have gone 130 but back starter to curve a bit so left it for next week

Not life wise just workout. Diet is still on track. I felt really tired and honestly could not be bothered on some days. I let some bs embarrassment idea into my thoughts and felt uncomfortable with being a bit out of shape and really didn't want to be at the gym anymore. Stupid really haha. I think I'm just tired from work and the extreme heat here in Australia at the moment and let the miniscule crap bother me. Felt like dropping the diet for a day but did not Next week is a new week and will weigh my self at the start of it to see if I'm losing anything. Guess I'll keep on trucking!
  5. Day 13 - 14 Off. Should have done some cardio or something to keep body active but was to occupied with life in general Day 15 - DB Bench Press - 50kg x3sets x15reps Incline DB Bench Press - 40kg x3sets x15reps DB Flys - 12.5kg each hand x15reps x3sets Incline Cable Flys - 2x20reps x20kg each hand, 2x20reps x15kg each hand Cable Rope Pulldowns - 40kg x8reps superset with 20kg x 12reps x 3 sets At the end of this weeks cycle I'm going to start adding all the cardio and HIIT workouts I was supposed to do from the start of this journal. I'll weigh myself at the end and decide if needed. Started to really feel drained lately before workouts but I think it just to do with Summer starting over here and having to drink x10 bottles of water a day haha
  6. Day 12 Full Body - DB Bench Press - 60kg x 6reps x2 sets, 65kg x6 x3 sets Squat - W/Up - 60kg x3, 80kg x1, set: 85kg x6reps x3 sets Military Press - 40kg x8reps, 40kg x6reps, 45kg x4reps.

Day 11 - Seated DB Press - 17.5kg each hand x 15 reps, 20kg each hand x13 reps, x9 reps, x8 reps DB Side Raises - 7kg each hand x15, x15, x15 then 10kg x10 Upright Rows - 23kg x15, x15, x15 B/Over rear delt raises - 7kg each hand x12, x12, x12 Front Raises - 10kg each hand x12, x12, x12, x12 Shoulder Press machine - 100 reps at 27kg Did not do Military press today as I am doing it tomorrow for the full body Bench, Squat, M/Press workout.
  8. Day 9 Deadlifts - 100kg x5, 110kg x5, 110kg x5, 110kg x5 DB Row - 25kg x10 x3 Lat Pulldown - 50kg x15, 45kg x15, 45kg x15 Seated Row - 30kg x25 x2 BB Curl - 20kg x12 x2 My lifts compared to the other week for this day felt incredibly weak. I think it's because I added in deadlifts on back day this time. My program suggested having it done on Leg day, but I knew I would get better lifts in having it on back day.
  9. Day 8 Squats - 60kg x3 warmup then 65kg x12 reps x 3 sets Front Squats - 40kg x12 reps x 2 sets Leg Curls - 40kg x15, 40kg x15, 40kg x6 5 second pause then 40kg x2 then 30kg x 7reps Leg Extensions - 50kg x20, 50 x20, 50 x15 pause 5 seconds then 50 x5 Calf Press - 60kg x15 x3sets The fun part of the gym I attend is that it is three flights of stairs high. Walking up them is a pain, walking down them after a leg session is murder Felt reasonably ok today, felt a bit exhausted before I started but managed to push through it. According to the program I'm following, it's got deadlifts on this day also. From previous workouts I always throw them in on back day. On to day 9
  10. Thanks JMF To be honest I've stuck to these for the last seven days and still feel awesome. I red you're advice but I chose to continue with these current macros because it's a diet/training program that I am following. I promised to stick to this diet/training layout so I'm going to see how it works out. It's supposed to be for four weeks, so we'll see how it goes. Foods - Bananas Falafel Black Beans Brown Rice Oat Milk Oats Spinach Leaves Tomatoes Red Split Lentils Avocado Sun warrior protein Sugar Free RedBull Totals - Protein: 112.8g, Fats: 33.6g, Carbs: 273.4g, Fiber: 40.7g and Calories: 2096.5

  12. Day 5 + 6 No workouts. Day 5 was supposed to be a rest day. Day 6, gym closed earlier. Unfortunately my gym is not 24hr. Tried to get into a couple of 24hr gyms but because you need a keycard to get in at night, no chance. It's crap that some 24hr gyms require a key pass to get in, only because I couldn't get in to any for a one off session, but for safety it's great lol. Diet still on track, feeling quite well
  13. Day 4 - Full body compound day. DB flat bench press - warm up, 50kg x 6 - set - 60kg x6, 60kg x6, 65kg x5, 65kg x6, 65kg x6. Squats - warm up, 60kg x3, 70kg x2 - set - 80kg x6, 80kg x6, 80kg x6, 90kg x3, attempted 100kg failed. Military Press - 40kg x8, 40kg x6, 40kg x5. Was unsure how my squats were going to go as during the week of testing my maxes I was extremely sore for the following few days. It actually turned out alright. Four days into eating the exact same thing and tracking everything and I feel good. Felt really good going into the gym today.
  14. Day 3 - Today was supposed to be an off day according to my program. Did some light cardio after work just to keep motivated daily.
  15. Day 2. Military Press - 40kg x10, 40kg x8, 40kg x7 Seated DB Press - 10kg x15, 15kg x15, 15kg x12, 15kg x12 DB Raises - 4x 7kg each hand x 15 Upright Rows - 20kg x15 x3 Bent over rear delts - 7kg each hand x12reps x 3 sets Front Raises - 7kg each hand x12reps x 2 sets Ate a little bit under today.

Worked late and had just made it into the gym before it closed. Changing my workouts to mornings from now on. Change of food, tons of water, feeling good
  17. Spent the entire week getting my max lifts. I've worked my program around the main lifts. Was going to start my program seven days ago but since I have not lifted anything in quite a long time, I thought I'd get everything right. Squat - 122kg/268lbs Bench - 85kg/187lbs Deadlift - 150kg/330lbs Military Press - 42kg/92lbs Clean - 45kg/99lbs Feel like crap posting starting photos but hey.. needs to be done Sore as hell after the first week but pumped to start from scratch tomorrow
  18. Hey, Two years ago, back to the non vegan days, if I was not eating about 190-220g of protein Nothing would grow on me. I went a while around 160-170g mark and my strength suffered Greatly. This is the first time I'm going this low. The reason being is because every vegan lifter and every article/video I have viewed created by one have all stuck to a lower protein intake and a really High carb intake. Yeah I knew eating 1700 would be a bit low. My maintenance level is roughly about 2600 so I'm going to change it to about 2200. I guess it's impatience
  19. Hi, Finally decided to kick my butt back into shape. I am 28, 183cm tall and weigh 207lbs. Goal: Get weight down to 170lbs, get my overall cardio up to scratch. Hoping to hit about 180lbs by the end of the year. I guess you could say this journal is a must for me. There have been times in the past where I have put on weight but managed to lose it quite easily a few weeks after. This is the first time in years that I have got to this weight level. I've started breathing heavily more, getting tired/loss of energy extremely quickly and experiencing anxiety a crazy amount more than in previous years. I don't really have any specific evidence that points to my weight triggering these issues, but I have never felt like this before until I gained the weight Training will be 6-7 days a week. Some of those days will be just a light cardio session, the others lifting sessions. Will post as each day approaches. Also will be posting starting pics end of tomorrow night. Diet - Starting out at about 1800 calories, while watching body weight and energy throughout workouts to determine if I will be upping calories. Specifics - Protein:150.8 Fat:29.4 Carbs:189 Calcium:655.5 Fiber:36.5 Calories:1711.5 Do or die time
  20. Hey all, I noticed that there was another SOY post but did not want to hi jack it because it's main topic was the keto diet. I'm currently drinking soy milk. I've read the pros and cons and the articles that say I'm going to turn into a female. That would be a change ha! Anyway I would love to get info from real world people who have been on soy diets for quite a while. Any changes, feeling different etc My main concern was calcium hence why I am drinking Soy milk. I have found it the easiest way to reach 1000mg daily. So I planned on drinking 250ml in the morning with my shake and same thing at the end the day. 500ml for the day. Currently cutting: Age:28, Heights: 182cm, BW: 93kg Macros: Pro:134.1g, Fat:50.1g, Carbs:204.6g, Cals:1910.5, Calcium:1213mg, Fiber:41.25g. If I remove 250ml then calcium would drop to 813mg which is still pretty close to target anyway. Thanks !
