Re: solid supplements to take

I quit taking creatine, and am still maintaining strength levels during a hockey season where I'm playing 4-5 nights per week.

No reason why I quit, really. Ran out and haven't bought any new...

Re: Mobility - How much time do you spend on it.

Best mobility in my mind is staying active. So I try to do that as much as I can.

From there I do lots of lacrosse ball, foam roller, stretching work. The lacrosse ball works wonders. IMO the...

In my experience, people would be MUCH better off in just figuring out what foods give them issues, and staying away from them rather than just avoiding everything gluten.

There is definitely an...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

If you want to test strength based on the big 3, then yes, I am stronger than he is.

If you think there is a better way to test strength, please share.

Why not just admit that Lebron doesn't...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

Lebron shouldn't even be part of the fittest athlete list is my point. Doesn't take much to be 'stronger' than he is.

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

Well to be bluntly honest, he's not even as strong as I am and I don't play a professional sport. :yikes:

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

Endurance is a tricky beast. Adrian Peterson probably has a very high V02max, as does Steven Stamkos, but neither would do very well in a soccer game.

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

The reason Froning would rank higher than most is because he might only get an 8 when it comes to strength, but he would get an 8 with endurance, and 8 with speed. Therefore he would test out higher...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

All of the above are certainly fit and would be considered top tier in their respective sports but the list is for fittest athlete in the world and there has to be a better evaluation than just 'fit'...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

Basketball is not a contact sport, so no, pound for pound they won't be as strong simply because they don't have to train for it.

NFL players have to train for contact, and therefore are stronger. ...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

Basketball players do have some component of strength as well, although it is nothing compared to NFL players.

Soccer is a huge sport. Lots of people watch and are probably amazed that someone can...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

For the most part players have pretty strict fitness standards. But I agree that most wouldn't be considered elite at all those categories.

I do however think it is a sport that benefits from being...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

You are right that junior players generally aren't that strong, but in order to be successful in the NHL you have to be strong.

Stamkos is probably one of the best players in the NHL. Use his...

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

It was a 50" box jump then. Saw it on a video a year ago.

Either way, he is still strong, fast and has great endurance. All 3 should be required if you're on the list.

Re: Sports Illustrated's 50 Fittest Athletes

Does it really matter? The point is top tier hockey players have speed, strength and endurance. It is part of their job description these days.

Hockey players are strong. Steven Stamkos has a 50" vertical and can deadlift over 500lbs.

12 hour shifts break your body down as is.

The argument was that you can't do both at the same time. I have done both at the same time, as have many others.

There are a variety of ways to do it. All involve eating right and properly timed...

Re: how much is too much?

That was what my original point was about. I would never squat more than 2x per week. Once for 1RM work, once for light/high rep work.

Maintain what? Body fat percentage? Muscle mass? Weight? It isn't that simple at all.

Re: how much is too much?

I know it is low, but for inexperienced lifters it is a good number to stay at if you're squatting 4-5x per week. Most people would never recommend squatting that much to begin with.
