Re: Joint health? What really works

All I've ever taken is MSM, so I can't vouch for anything else. My knees have always been a little dodgy ever since I was a kid, and they would hurt even after walking for an hour. Since I've started taking MSM, they don't hurt at all, even after 3-hour runs! I would totally look the stuff up. It's ...

Collecting Advice from Successful Entrepreneurs

My goal is to enjoy multiple sources of revenue from my own businesses and projects. My first step is to find successful, positive people who have already accomplished this goal (authors, motivational speakers, bloggers, business owners, etc.) and to send them a brief list of questions about how the...

Re: Joint health? What really works

MSM!!!!! I love this stuff. Almost everybody who has ever tried it has benefitted from it, myself included. It's awesome for the joints and also for your overall health.

Re: high, moderate, or low intensity? which works best?

It depends how intense your Pilates sessions are. If they make you energized and ready for more, I would do high intensity cardio right after you do your Pilates and do low intensity cardio on your off days. If Pilates really kicks your butt, so to speak, I would do the low intensity after Pilates a...

Re: high, moderate, or low intensity? which works best?

A general rule of thumb I like to follow is to not do high intensity workouts two days in a row. I'm not sure what your overall training looks like (if you're doing weight training, etc.), but I would think you would be fine doing high intensity interval cardio on Mon, Wed and Fri, and low intensity...

Re: high, moderate, or low intensity? which works best?

Personally, I've had better luck with low intensity, long duration, but everybody is different. Whenever I do high intensity, I find it harder to recover without eating way more calories than I burn. Personally, I run slowly for what averages out to be an hour a day, six days a week. After a couple ...

I totally agree about the squats! I'd add them as an overall leg exercise (an overall full-body exercise for that matter :wink: ).

Personally, I'd sub Romanian deadlifts for the leg curls and front squats for the leg extensions.

I could not agree more about the belt. I can see using one if you're a powerlifter trying for new max, but otherwise it seems like a good way to get a weak (and eventually injured) lower back. Personally, I've always liked pulling from the floor, but I don't think you're risking injury pulling it ou...

False alarm on the carnitine: it turns out that the only concern is that vegan foods often contain less, but there are plenty of sources (peanut butter, nuts, legumes, wheat...). I agree about supplementation. A few drops of a B-12 supplement tastes way better than dirt :lol: . By the way, hemp is a...

Hey Beth! I'm glad you're here :D . I actually grew up in Tucson. I live in Prescott now. It's funny that you mention that perhaps humans were designed to consume animal products from time to time. My gf and I were just having this conversation the other day. I can see where you're coming from consi...

Vegantimes.org

A friend of mine has a cool vegan-related site I thought some of you might want to check out. It has some great articles and videos that relate to veg*nism and other health topics. The easiest way to navigate away from the home page is to scroll down until you reach the categories/pages sections. Th...

Lena, I bet those high-rep squats would be great for endurance. I'm getting winded just thinking about it! I imagine that would make a person's legs burn like crazy, but in a good way. :D

I like Bill's take on this subject, but I also like Potter's political stabs :lol:. When I made the comment about following the money trail, what I meant to say was that, if politics are involved, most likely these politics are in some way influenced by financial interests. That doesn't mean that po...
