Scheisse! Sooooo long time without updates.

I've had nasty pain in my lower back every now and then which has kept me away from squatting and deadlifting, and because of that I haven't been training with weights for a while. Another reason is that I've been running my vegan company, http://vegetukku.fi , all days and nights and so far I've sold stuff worth more than 50 000 USD this year. I've sold hundreds of pounds of protein so at least I'm contributing to the Finnish vegan fitness scene all the time.

I actually am starting up with weights again now, since you can't go to the beach without being SWOL. So at least I'll pump my upper body every day if the sun is shining. :D

Another thing I've thought about is to start training more with own body weight, it is more convenient while getting my back back in shape. I'm not totally in crappy shape, since I've been bboying a LOT and I can actually do more with my body on the dancefloor since I'm leaner but haven't lost strength compared to my weight.

But now that I finally have time to promise people to start lifting again, I really have to do it. It will be interesting to see how fast the muscles come back!

Great to see you on here!

Congrats on your business! Wow! $50K so far! That is amazing! I need to learn from you. I end up losing about $50K a year giving away too many things like t-shirts :)

You promise to start lifting again....I'll hold you to it!

Welcome back to the gym...me too. Took 4-6 months off. Returned 2 weeks ago :)

See you around my friend!

Wow! I gotta get a few copies of the book asap! I planned to pre-order but for forgot to do that! Looks like it is selling pretty well!

Getting back in shape! Today I took sets in bench press @ 50 kg (110lbs). About 20 reps per set just to get familiar with the barbell again. After that a few sets standing shoulder press, bicep curls and bent-over rows. Feels good man!

To boost my return I am taking recovery drinks which have:

- Soy/pea/3-component protein (I don't cycle them in order, just take what I feel like.
- Creatine
- Megazell optimizer (loads of vitamins and nutrients)
- Algomed chlorella (super quality german tube farm chlorella which I sell)
- Beta-alanine

Tastes great! :P

I just ordered 3 VBB books, I think I'll give one to my business associate who also sells vegan books in her boutique and then one will be given away by Vegetukku.fi (my company) to some of my great customers.

Then some training:

I was really stuck after training and decided to rest since I knew what was coming. Another sports camp and loads of bboying lessons to keep.

10th June - 2h bboying
11th June - 3h bboying
12th June - 3h bboying

And in addition, loads of more bboying in the evenings.

14th June - another light training, just some bench presses and bicep curls ect. to get familiar with weights again. LONG sets, like 20 reps per set. Good pump!

Yeah, well, Zack, not that much to read. :D

Luckily I haven't been as lasy when it comes to training compared to writing about it. I am getting some strength back and I already took 12 reps @ 155lbs easily in bench press. Deadlifts and squats still suck big time but at least I got my legs totally demolished while doing squats. Hope they will recover by next week since I'm going to Germany to see the big vegan guys from all around the world.

My usual workouts now have been quite simple. Just bench press, overhead press and bicep curls, or stuff like squats and deadlifts and bent-over rows. As soon as the weights are again somewhere worth mentioning, I will start writing detailed stuff since it helps me to track the progress.

+3 years without updates, now training only with own body weight. Still vegan but now even more raw, body weight less than before but also fat % less than before!

My normal routine consists of 100 pull-ups (sets of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) and as much pull-ups as I can do with legs raised ~2 feet up from ground.

Also breakdancing many many hours each week. My waist circumference is near to female supermodels, so I think I am tightest I have ever been.
