Re: Strength Gains With Creatine

It certainly isn't useless. But in my training world, efficiency is the name of the game. 5 days x 20g = 100g; 30 days x 5g = 150g. But I suppose diarrhea isn't anyone's idea of efficient. Although I...

Re: Progenex vs. Creatine or both

This. I'm surprised the creatine "water weight" misconception/myth is still running rampant.

Re: Strength Gains With Creatine

I remember reading a study (I'll try to dig it up) which found that without using a loading phase, and dosing 5g/day, it takes in the ballpark of a month to reach peak saturation. However, using a...

Re: pan-am games oly coverage/news...

My understanding is that for Donny to edge out Kendrick for the top spot, Donny needs to hit a 388 total. That's an 18kg PR for his competition total. He would realistically have to hit a lifetime PR...

Re: pan-am games oly coverage/news...

You can't compare snatches and C&Js in a Crossfit competition to those in an Oly competition. Many of the heavy lifts in Crossfit comps are pressed out and wouldn't be successful lifts in an Oly comp.

Re: Please Butcher This Power Clean/Press

Re: Putting on weight

Stay away from steel cut oats for shakes.

If you have a coffee grinder, throw the oats there for a few seconds before mixing in the shake. It goes down a bit better.

Re: Goals for 2012

I haven't re-tested any of the lifts for a max single, but 3 months into the year, these goals definitely still seem attainable. Well, bench, chins and press, anyway. I haven't trained any of the...

Re: Oatmeal?

Fixed it for you. I wouldn't want to see you try to fight infection or injury without an acute inflammatory response.

I've been doing dips every training day, alternating between 5 ascending sets of 5, and 3 straight light sets of 8. I've been having a lot of success with that model. Play around with it and see what...

Re: Magnesium for muscle tightness

Calcium and magnesium compete for intestinal absorption. So you can conclude that ingesting both simultaneously would result in less absorption of magnesium than if you avoided calcium, and vice...

Re: Alex' Westside Log

So I had X-rays today and a follow-up appt with my sports med doc. The acute injury looks like a groin tear and sports hernia. The chronic stuff looks like FAI (femoroacetebular impingement) and a...

Re: Alex' Westside Log

I tore my groin in a hockey game today. I guess I should've taken it easy on my groin after all. Live and learn.

Hereby on hiatus until further notice...unless I can manage to bench in a few days.

Re: What's your no-fail pump up playlist?

My go-to song for a heavy pull is Apocalyptic Havoc by Goatwhore. Really helps build up some rage.

Re: almond milk bad? re: omega 6

I might actually give that a shot. I used to just throw a handful of spinach in the blender with my fruit and it wasn't all that bad, but I like the idea of little veggie medley ice cubes.
