Re: Programming questions

I can't speak for the boxes that do this, but I frequently do a "mini" strength session before a met con workout because I want to get the benefits of both. I want more strength gains than just the...

Re: What kind of cereal do you eat...

Frank - can you explain why you soak the oats? (serious question...feel I need to specify this since my last response to one of your posts was a little smarta$$y...:D). Does soaking take the place...

Re: Gorging and Purging and Benders

I have a similar problem. I chalk it up partially to my personality - I essentially do very few things in life in moderation, whether good or bad. I also believe there is somewhat of a biological...

Re: Sodium in deli meat

Agreed...

In this particular instance, the ingredients were listed on a small little sign for the whole stock and the individual labels on each package did not list the ingredients. Still, that...

Re: Milk

Wow...really encouraging...

I'm guessing $6 per quart is the "OTC" price in CA (one of the few states it is available that way). I pay $6.75 per gallon through my cow share/co-op. I would still...

Re: Energy drink calorie count. Funny math?

I gave up coffee to devote more stomach space to beer (not to imply I doubt your wisdom)...:D

Re: Milk

Ok, I agree (mostly - I feel like a half a pound is too small). Let me rephrase that then...I gain 3-5lbs of "appealing" mass in a week. Muscles look fuller and no water retention to the point of...

Re: Milk

Yes, it really amazes me every time. To be fair though, I haven't "experimented" with an equivalent amount of commercial milk but I have no desire to try considering my poor tolerance for it, and...

Re: Milk

Try raw milk if you can get it. I have digestive problems with commercial milk in small quantities but have zero digestive problems with raw milk (I've only had as much as a 1/2 gallon in a day,...

Re: What kind of cereal do you eat...

None. Unless I feel like getting light-headed, then sleepy, then ravenously hungry for more cereal which leads to the whole process being repeated.

I've even tried eating the organic, supposedly...

Re: Sodium in deli meat

Be careful with some of the pre-roasted chicken at grocery stores. I've been duped by them before when I grabbed one in an attempt at a quick, healthy meal. After finishing it, I was a little...

Re: Chigger attack!

For a natural approach, I would suggest any kind of product with neem oil in it (or just pure neem oil itself). Neem has some anti-inflammatory properties for the itching and redness and it is also...

Re: Keeping earphones in ear during WOD

I did, in fact, use the word "normies". And if you have a normal amount of sweat glands and sweat above your neck, this means you too, Robert...;)

Re: Keeping earphones in ear during WOD

I sure do. I probably only use a 1 1/2 to 2 inch piece of clear cellophane tape however, so it's not THAT obnoxious. I'm sure it looks goofy though, but I like to think I get a little bit of...

Re: Keeping earphones in ear during WOD

If I am using my iPod, I actually do tape the ear phones in with cellophane tape before the start of my workout.

A couple of caveats: I couldn't care less about the fact that it looks a little...

Re: Gatorade question

"chick logic" is more of an oxymoron than "emotional dude".

Re: How do you say "Tabata?"

Mark - I have to assume that by the fact you said "I slay me" you do a good job of making yourself laugh so you probably don't care if other people laugh at your jokes (how I feel as well), but for...

Colin -

I think you will get the best "scientific" evidence if you just try raw milk yourself. It would be the most unbiased, specific and delicious research you could find. Use the same logic...

Re: Knee pain... tendonitis?

VMO = vastus medialis obliquus. It's the tear-drop shaped part of the quadricep on the inside of your knees.

The VMO is implicated in many cases of knee pain (patellar-femoral pain syndrome, knee...
