Because those low cal foods cost more. You can buy 6 "whole grain sandwich thins" (low carb bread) for about $3, or you can buy a loaf of 20+ slices of regular bread for $1.49. Never understood how companies get away with charging more money while delivering less product. I guess there is more processing involved to get things low cal but still relatively tasty and filling.You don't understand the science behind it? Or you don't get why people do it? Regarding the first,...
Chocolate-covered peanut-butter filled pretzels. Meat. Pop-tarts. Utz potato chips hand-cooked in lard. Pepperidge Farm soft bake cookies.Y'all can have your shreddedness..... I've got my sights set on snatching 300lbs.
Eastbay evapor performance tees. Cotton/poly blend, tough fabric, tagless, $4 each.
Another vote here for True Nutrition. Besides the ability to customize the proteins in the mix, you can specify less sweetener for your mix, as well as avoiding sucralose or acesulfame if you don't like those things. I am almost done 5lb of 50% whey isolate and 50% hydrolyzed whey and it was the best tasting, best mixing protein I've ever tried. Then again, I always mix with milk which helps with taste and texture.
A lot of weightlifting (olympic) training programs lack high volume periods, and I agree that there is much to be gained from venturing into double digit rep territory from time to time. One notable exception is the LSUS program that does 10rep schemes for 3 weeks before moving to 5rep and 3rep periods of 3 weeks each. I'm probably going to run the LSUS program sometime this year, I will see if it is as brutal as everyone says it is.
I think this is good for all strength sports. With non-stick-ball sports becoming larger markets, it will make business sense to cater to these markets. More products, more media coverage, more sponsorship. Already Crossfit has helped expand the market for barbells, plates/bumpers, weightlifting gear, etc.Also, Crossfit in and of itself isn't that silly. The fitness concept does work and is useful for a large population of people who have no sport-specific desires. What is...
I feel like there could be an entire separate thread on Idiot Female Random Health and Exercise Thoughts. It's like they take broscience to the extreme... the more anecdotal and less empirical something is, the more women will believe in it.
I've seen these and others like them, and I'm curious as to how they taste. But $3 per bar is a bit crazy.
Bodybuilding Level: Asian -- two waifish dudes in stringer tanks, skinny jeans, and Crocs doing 50 rep shoulder shrugs with 15lb dumbbells.
So what you're saying is that powerlifters train like bodybuilders at times because it's a lot easier? Seriously, though... I think the reality is that there are similar training aspects across all three sports. People just refine certain parts to reflect their desired training goals.Plus, I think I've mentioned this before, but I believe anyone in any of the three sports could gain from incorporating aspects of the others. Snatch-style exercises are great for upper back...
