    i'm out of whey

    cop trutein? cinnabun sounds good, but two years ago i was reading rave reviews about ON cookies and cream and that shit was so fucking gross and i had 2.5 lbs of it. i've stuck to chocolate ever since.


    nvm. found the samples they sell on their site. going to try all the flavors

    High intensity training can be done lots of different ways. Personally I am in favor of conditioning with weights. Do you have any legitimate injuries, or are you just worried about general wear and tear? If your technique is solid most things I'd program for you shouldn't create a lot of joint/tendon problems.

    Even then, bodyweight conditioning can be great. 20 minutes of pullups, pushups, and air squats will do you a load of good if done at sufficiently high intensity and with good technique.

    Every whey I've tried before has been "meh" at best. Trutein is actually enjoyable. :)

    There's a brand of whey out there that has a lot of flavors that actually taste great and I say that as someone who hates most whey. Can't recall the name offhand, but there had a birthday cake flavor among others.

    It's too bad Metabolic Drive is so pricey, because the chocolate variation is amazing. Chris Shugart actually sent me a free tub of it a couple years back for posting the "best" response to a prompt he posted on his blog. I was tempted to buy some after that ran out, but $37 for a 2-pound tub is obscene.

    As somebody that loves to cook from scratch, calorie counting is a depressing bitch.

    How so? I cook every night from scratch and I've found that it's even easier to count calories, you know what's going in each dish and you can weigh out exactly how much you put in your mouth.

    Which insoles are you using? My deuces just arrived last night and came with the comp (hard) insoles already in the shoes, but I was instructed to use training (softer) insoles to start. No workout today, but going to try them out tomorrow. Will be interesting to see how much adjustment is required after using running shoes for so long. I did hit a C&J PR the other day in my last session wearing running shoes, so I send them off with fond memories.

    My grand parents should be moving there permanently soon, parents wants to go in December so I can probably come around then. By then I will probably have went on dat der and acquired a decent bench.
