It's been a while since I've reviewed an item from the Vegan Box, but there's been a product that was in a box a few months back that was a real stand out, and I've been planning to review it for ages! So here it is... it's the Gentle Micro Exfoliant by A Bit Hippy, and it totally rocks! Here's why...
"Mod Blend Pro seamlessly combines beautiful design with innovative blending technology.

At least, that's what the website claims... Want to know what I think after a month of using it? Read my review below!
Phew! December was a busy one for me, and I didn't get a chance to review my favourite item in the November edition of The Vegan Box... which was the dazzlingly beautiful and equally delicious Freeze Dried Pink Pitaya Granules from Just Blends! Here it is, a month late!
Featured in The Vegan Box in October, The Chocolate Yogi's Frothy Toffee is vegan chocolate that changes the world... and not just because it tastes AMAZING!
I took to Facebook and asked my friends and followers for questions... here are my answers! If you have more questions, feel free to ask them in the comments below, or get in touch with me!
Every month, I'll be reviewing my favourite product from The Vegan Box. My top product from last month's box was... Cracked Candy - Warming Cinnamon!
I think this has to be my favourite workout... as it's mostly delts! Read on below...
During this workout, I struggled with an on-going knee injury that's been giving me grief. I lightened up the weight and chose movements that didn't cause pain. Keep reading below...

Does anyone else ever struggle with back activation? I often find it difficult to engage my back in a lot of machine and isolation movements. However, for the last few months I've been including pull-ups consistently in my routines, and I really feel my back working so much more than any other exercise! They are such a beneficial movement to include in your training - if you can't do pull-ups (yet!) try jumping from a step or box into controlled negatives, use bands, or have a go on the assisted pull-up/chin up machine.

Unlike legs, I LOVE training upper body, especially shoulders! So yesterday was a great day.
This week, I'm trying a push/pull/legs split, which is something I've never really done. I've tried a lot of training styles, however when it comes to frequency, I've been more a fan of the typical bodybuilding "bro split" (usually 1-2 body parts per session, meaning you usually only hit each muscle group once a week) or powerlifting training (workouts focused on improving strength in one of the main lifts, rather than focusing on muscle groups).
I want to see how my body responds to a training program that allows me to hit all my muscle groups twice a week. Keep reading below to see what I did for delts, pecs and triceps...
