Re: Post-injury single-arm training and food log!!!

Did a few sprints this week. Did some single-arm flexed arm hangs and some single-arm inverted rows. Started doing uphill sprints. On Sunday I did a 400 meter sprint with the incline on 6 in 72 seconds. I about passed out. Then I did 30 single-leg pistol squats on the bosu. On Monday, I did a 2 mil...

Re: eating before bed and weight gain (fat)

I've never heard of the Warrior Diet. I just looked it up. It looks interesting and seems to be consistent with my anecdotal observations. I will have to read more about it! I usually advise clients to eat when they are hungry, to choose nutritious whole natural foods from the Earth, and to make sur...

Re: training for a 2 day 170 mi ride

I wish I had the bank to donate to your ride! But I'll post some moral support. I think as a vegan, you will already have an advantage in this type of long-distance event!!! The longest ride I ever did was 100 miles. That was about 6 years ago when I was vegetarian, but still ate a decent bit of jun...

Re: Post-injury single-arm training and food log!!!

It has been about a month since I injured my right infraspinatus. Things like taking off a shirt, taking off socks and shoes, brushing teeth, picking up anything, et cetera still result in shooting pain. But I'm making good progress with cardio and legs I think. Did a 400m (0.25 mile) sprint in 72 s...

Re: eating before bed and weight gain (fat)

The quantity and quality of your food intake are of vastly more importance than the timing and frequency of your food intake. Do you keep a food log? What types of foods are you eating? Are you getting enough vitamins and minerals? I don't like to eat much during the day because it makes me feel slu...

Re: Soy Protein. Good or Bad?

Exactly, yes. That's my point. There's no evidence, so don't claim it's unsafe. Be honest. Say that we don't know for sure whether it's safe or not. The fact that there is no evidence is precisely why it is unsafe. Absence of evidence of harm does not = evidence of absence of harm. It is perfectly ...

Re: Soy Protein. Good or Bad?

Recent comprehensive literature reviews have concluded that there is currently no scientific consensus regarding the safety of genetically modified organisms. There are numerous concerns with GM organisms and the scientific community remains divided on many of these issues. While the nutritional val...

Protein: Brassica, Not Whey!

Hopefully none of us here consume whey! I read this nifty article that Fallen Horse posted. Thanks, Fallen Horse! http://www.suntimes.com/lifestyles/12891917-423/our-preoccupation-with-protein.html I decided to post a comment, which then turned into me writing a book, so I decided to post it here i...

Re: Squats

Right on! I recently started incorporating squats into my leg workouts as well and am enjoying them! I had tried heavy barbell squats when I was younger, but then I heard a lot of horror stories and became worried about back problems and hernias, so I stopped doing them. Now I do a lot of body-weigh...

Re: What is the best health drug

Smoking anything is bad for your heart and lungs though. Smoking will negatively impact health and fitness, so if you know anyone who smokes cannabis, you should encourage them to switch to edibles instead. By the way, what was the point of your post?

Re: Post-injury single-arm training and food log!!!

(This is actually yesterday's entry, I just didn't have time to post it yesterday): I ran 800 meters (0.5 miles) in 2:25!!!! Then I attempted some close-grip pronated chin-ups, but I could only do about 15 because my muscles have seriously atrophied. I ended up completing 30, but it took 3 sets. I d...

Re: Post-injury single-arm training and food log!!!

I spent the weekend swimming and climbing some trees and rope swinging out over the river. It was a pretty good workout. Today I taught a bunch of abs classes and did lots of planks with clients. My own workout today: 500 meter sprint in 1:28 Single-arm dumbbell squat to shoulder press on bosu: 15 ...
