  1. This is a great product http://ultimareplenisher.com/ No weird after taste
  2. Here is a list http://runvegan.wordpress.com/shoe-guide/ I use the Inov-8's, the L-lites and Roclites some of the best shoes I have ever used.
  3. Its a chance it is a pulled muscle and you keep irritating it each time you lift. This site is great http://www.mobilitywod.com he has a lot of good info, just type in what you are looking for.
  4. I've been following him for a while and ran into him at DC Vegfest, a really great guy. His recipe section have helped my wife and I when we are in a bunch especially http://www.nomeatathlete.com/cinco-de-mayo-tostadas/ We skip the yogurt and cheese of course. I usually put the avocado on mine then in the oven, gives it a good creamy taste.
  5. They are great. You wouldn't think it but using a kettlebell compared to a dumbbell makes a big difference.
  6. My wife and I are GF, here is a good one. http://www.glutenfreecookingschool.com/archives/finally-really-good-sandwich-bread/ I have only cooked it in the oven and not the bread machine. It stays in the fridge for a couple of days, then we freeze it
  7. I did the Civilian military combine http://www.civilianmilitarycombine.com/ It was an obstacle course race, my first and I loved it. I'm doing another race on October 22nd called Run for your lives http://runforyourlives.com/ Its a 5k obstacle race, but with zombies
  8. I just stumbled onto your log- 1st, sorry to hear about your town, that rain storm hit us hard too in Maryland and 2nd awesome job on the reults so far. I did an ice bath after a race I did in Tannersville Pa., not too far from your neck of the woods. That was look I had on my face, but it felt great after wards.
  9. I just did an obstacle race about a month ago, it wasn't the tough mudder but it was hard as hell. My training routine was preatty simple for the run portion. 1 mile run body weight exercise (pull-ups, push-ups, squats, sit-ups....). Sometimes I would do the run with push-ups and squats other times it was run and pull-ups only. repeat 4-5 times You have to find what your weak area is. With these courses, there is lots of pulling, rope climbs those things, so I would focus on pulling exercises if that is a problem. I can't recomend a rep count for you because everyone is different and has limits on there strengths. You need to work on your problem areas in a fatiqued state. My problem was up hill running and thats what I'm going to work on next time. Another good exercise is bear crawls, really burns out your shoulders, arms, legs. Good luck and have fun!
  10. My wife and I will be there. It was great last year, had a blast. Diet went out the window though
  11. I love putting frozen spinach in a smoothie, gives it a nice thick consistency. A "go to " breakfast of mine is from Thrive by Brendan Brazier, its his cereal. 1 TBSP hemp protein powder 1 TBSP ground flax seed 1 TBSP chopped ginger 1-2 dates chopped 1/4 C nuts chopped (I use almonds or a mix of almonds/cashews or almonds/walnuts) 1 banana cut up Soy, almond or hemp milk to the consistency you like I mix the hemp powder and flax together real well, usually in a shaker or blender. Then add everything else. Optional add ins - cacao nibs, blue berries... I'm actually eating right now, did it different this time and definitly a winner. I did the hemp powder, flax and took frozen blueberries added the soy milk and blended it then added everything else. Awesome.
  12. Rows on gymnastic rings -feet on the floor -feet elevated on a bench Band curls band rows up side down pull-up (holding onto a bar, go upside down-feet are up and head is pointing towards the floor)
  13. I've had their black bean pasta and the soy bean pasta, both are great! The soy bean pasta reminds me of Ramien noodles
  14. He posts a lot over here http://bar-barians.forumotions.com/ Lots of bodyweight stuff, mainly pull-ups, muscle ups and dips though
  15. I'll give my 2 cents worth of ideas from experience, none of which are science based. From my experience, number 3- excesse cardio, but in addition to that, a lack of calories. Once you burn through the carbs and fat only protein is left to burn. So eat up! I really can't recomend what would be a good amount. Almost every where you look, some say 20-30 mins a day others say 2 hours a week. HIIT is great, but rememebr there are other ways of getting cardio instread of running- i.e. swimming, rowing (a concept 2 is great), sled dragging (although not as fast as the others because your dragging a 70+ pound sled, gets your heart rate up in a hurry). You can also throw in "Finishers" at the end of a strength workout. Here are some good ones http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/seven_metabolic_finishers_to_burn_fat Good luck, glad to see that you are cautious about over doing. Better to be on the safe side, and slowly build up by doing short stints at first, maybe less then 10 mins and go from there.
  16. This site is really good, I've made some of the breads and deserts: http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/ Becareful with the tempeh, some of them use barley which contain gluten. I posted a few pancake recipes in the in the recipe section that are gluten free.
  17. Another one I tried this morning was: 2 bananas (the more ripe the better) 1-2 TBS of peanut butter (or any nut butter will do) 1 TBS of flax seeds+3-4TBS of water (or if you use an egg replacer the equilivent of 1 egg) Mash the bananas up very fine to like a pudding like consistency. Mix in the flax+water (or egg replacer) then add the nut butter (more if you want it to be thck) Heat up a pan, medium low (these burn very easily I learned ) add some oil. Pour some of the batter and cook for about 3-4 mins a side (so that it is cooked and light brown). I like to add peanut butter, agave and sunflower seeds on top.
  18. ^^I've done two of his workouts. Well not an entire workout, but parts. They are brutal. One was a front squat/burpee combo and the one I did yesterday was 5 burpees 5 squats 5 push-ups 20 jumping jacks 20 mountain climbers Do all of it in 90 seconds. The faster you finish, the longer the rest. 30 rounds I'm still feeling it today.
  19. This is one of my favorite ways to end a strength workout. Some of my favorites: 50-40-30-20-10 Push-ups Squats Do 50 push-ups, then 50 squats, then 40 push-ups, 40 squats...10 push-ups, 10 squats 50 or 100 burpees depending on were your level is at Sprints 10 x 50m (sprint 50, jog or walk back to start) Hill sprints Jump rope 60 seconds on/30 seconds rest 5 rounds then 30 seconds on/ 15 seconds rest Kettlebell or dumbell swings 15 reps x 3 sets rest 1 min between sets
  20. The way I make PB, almond butter (really any nut or sunflower seed will also do)- 1 to 1.5 cups of nuts peanut or canola oil Place nuts in food processor and mix for about 1 min. It will start to clump up and then I add some oil, a little at a time to smooth it out. The more oil you add, the more easier it is to spread. Takes maybe 5 to 10 mins to make, clean up is the longest part of that.
  21. From the Thrive diet by Brandon Brazier (with a littel twist) 1 to 1.5 cups of sol milk TBSP hemp protein powder TBSP ground flax TBSP ginger 1 big bananna .25 cup of almonds chopped up Homemade Lara bar* .5 cup of blueberries (frozen, but they thaw out in a min or two in the milk) I take the soy milk, hemp, flax and ginger and blend it up in a blender. Pour it into a bowl. Add the almonds, cut up the bananna and lara bar and add the blueberries. Not a quick breakfast, but tastes great. *Homemade Lara bar 3 oz of fresh dates (pit taken out) 3 oz of nuts (I used walnuts for this new batch) dash of cinnamon throw all into a food processor and run it till it mixes, maybe 30-60 seconds. It will look like a ball of brownish gunck. Lay it onto wax paper, place another sheet on it and roll it out flat, may 1/4 inch thick. Slice into bars, wrap it up in the wax paper, put it in a ziplock or frezzor bag and put it in the frezzor for storage. It will not get rock hard in the frezzor, but it will dry out in the fridge.
