Re: Creatine Question

HCL is a waste of money. Get aNOPE creatine monohydrate product and save money and get the same results.

As others noted, a very safe supplement.

Re: Supplement advise, please

Thank you.

Yes, I would go with the same protein for women. This isn't about total daily intake, just a single bolus dose which helps to stimulate protein synthesis and provide the substrate for...

Re: Supplement advise, please

Really just a catch-all. With that said, BCAA intake pre-workout may help with energy for training (via reduced perception of fatigue etc.). Consuming a BCAA supplement will deliver them aminos...

Re: Supplement advise, please

The only difference is double the protein to 40g post-workout. Studies have shown that a larger dose is better absorbed and utilized by older individuals.

Re: Competition Nutrition for a multiple event day

Eat foods that are a part of your normal diet. Plenty of quickly absorbed carbs. You are good to go.

Re: Proper Body Weight Gain?

Yeah, no need for the shake if you eat a good breakfast. Listen, and I know it will be sacrilege here, but if you are pressed for time get a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel at McDonald's and a hash...

Re: Proper Body Weight Gain?

Based on your written diet a really easy way to up your cals would be to actually eat breakfast. A bagel and protein shake is not breakfast. I sell supplements, so I don't say this lightly, but...

Three Training Myths You Should Avoid in the New Year

1) You need to foam roll, stretch, and God knows what else to warm-up prior to training.

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

Right. That is one problem I have seen in the CF world in general. The crowd mentality and support of others really pumps people up and every training day becomes like a meet day. In other words,...

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

Well, it would depend on what you are basing the percentage off of. A meet max is a psychologically stimulated maximum and thus a true 1RM (for all intents and purposes).

Of course, if progress is...

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

Right, what I am saying is that the term in its strength training world "proper" definition is a measure of the load vs. individual one rep max capacity (1RM) in a given exercise. If your 1RM bench...

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

I'm confused, are you simply trying to wow us with your brilliance, or did you want an answer?

Intensity does not equal power. Intensity is a measure of load vs. force production capacity in a...

Re: Redefining the relationship between Power and Intensity

Want to know the facts as they exist in the strength training world?

Intensity = load percentage of one repetition maximum. Ex. trainee can bench 200 lbs for one repetition as a maximum. That is...

Re: Strength gains

Another answer to your initial question, given the right heredity you can get very strong very fast. Sure, to be the best of the best it can take years, but an average Joe can get to within 10-15%...

Re: post-workout

I think it looks just fine. Plenty of carbs for glycogen replenishment and some protein. If it was me I would probably add half a scoop of protein to the smoothie to up the protein content a bit.

Re: Strength gains
