Today was a full bicep/arm day and a half shoulder day. Tomorrow will be full shoulders and half chest. The following will be full chest and half back then full back and half biceps/arm etc. That’s the bare bones of my new program. I am excited to see if it is a success!
Dumbbell Curls 3(x2)x10
Cross Body Hammer Curls 3(x2)x10
Full Extension Concentration Curls 3(x2)x10
Reverse Curls 4x10
Concentration Reverse Curls 3(x2)x10
This concluded the Bicep Workout, for shoulders:
Behind Head Military Press 3x10
Alternating Dumbbell Forward Shoulder Raises 3(x2)x10
Full Rotation Shoulder Raises 3x10
(For these, you start with a dumbell and keep your arms straight at your waist-level, then raise them all the way up over your head. It hits the traps a little bit too.)
Another little tip for shoulders? When doing Alternating Forward raises, throw in a little shrug at the top to hit the traps.
So I thought I would answer. I am usually not picky about my proteins, as I am a strict vegetarian and not a vegan; however, whey proteins still give some digestive troubles. So I primarily have been using this brand’s protein powder. http://www.veganproteins.com/ I know it provides me with the vegan nutrition I need after after a hard grind and it tastes a lot better than some of the non-vegan proteins I have used.
Of course, I firmly abide that if you have a complete and well rounded daily diet protein powders are really not a necessity; however, if you do supplement with proteins powders, I strongly suggest trying a vegan substitute at least once (pea protein, hemp protein). It is great stuff!
The goal of this run is to perform at your peak competition speed for 15 minutes. Best done not on a machine so your pace can vary at will. Best topped off with a little sprint at the end (bursting at the end of a run has boosted testosterone in scientific trials).
After the 15 minutes of grinding a nice little cool down is good to get back to your start point if you misjudged your loop and pacing. Hell, a cool down is good anyways. And to complete the work out a nice little ab session!
I personally am not sure if i’ll see the inside of the gym for weights today, pretty sore still so Tuesday may be my day off this week.
Weights was a glamour day. Chest, biceps, shoulders and some quick abs.
The run was a quick 3 miler. I hope everyone is enjoying their April Fools Day!
And Spring is so officially here in my little Oregon town! Happy Pagan Fertility Celebration/ Easter!

Seriously, from removing warts (unrelated) to gargling to sooth a cough and a sore throat I swear by this stuff and can only boast about its health benefits. Research it for yourself and do your body a favor by buying a bottle.
After a french press of coffee that was blacker than the love child of Tupac and Biggie Smalls I was ready and raring for a 50 minute run! No idea where it came from, just plopped the noise cancelling headphones on (a great investment for zoning out while running) and took off into the farmland surrounding my college’s city until it felt time to twist on turn on the windy roads back home for a shower. Wonderful.
The sights one sees while on a great run can be absolutely inspiring sometimes.
Sigh. Time for class!
Hey, there! Well, I am actually a pretty strict vegetarian so I stay away meats. I stay as raw as as possible and get a lot of my nutrition from grains, salads, fruits etc. And some cottage cheese here and there. I mean, my diet is a hard question to answer without getting a bit more specific with a question, but those are what I would say the staples are. If you want personally tailored information I would be happy to offer some directional advice there too!
