Nice, Gastank! Have you done a Marathon before?
My Promax from Predator should be here soon - I've never tried any Protein drinks before. Let's see how it goes. As I said before, I can't run at the moment, but nothing's stopping me doing upper body weights.
I had to post this:
Yeah, I usually combine my workouts with my runs - sometimes before, sometimes after the workout - but I'm not running at the moment because of this stupid knee. It's not even that cold at the moment! I know what's going to happen: I'll be better by mid January or February, by which time it'll be averaging 2 degrees. I've just had my session for today - no legs at the moment, but lots of upper body and abs work.
Predator Nutrition still haven't sent me my ProMax! I hope this is just down to Christmas post or something because I made the damn order on Dec 21st. If they don't reply soon to my email, I'll have to phone them.

RR post workout is really all I use it for but if your a bodybuilding nut they take on a variety of ratios according to the "anabolic window" i.e pre post and during but the real window is post and therefore is the most important when trying to build muscle Ideally you should be shooting for a shake within 20 mins max of finishing a workout and then eating a whole food meal an hour after that (I never can manage it, but that's the theory!) Here's the anabolic window macros if you're interested Pre workout - slow carb - oats... 56 carb (slow) 28 protein = 336 kcal Post - sugar based - maltodextrin (sp?) honey, blackstrap molasses, natural syrups 85 carbs (fast) 43 protein = 512 kcal I'd probably go Myofusion banana perfection + honey for post workout and maybe a real banana as well for the added potassium
Edit: We've definitely got a spambot here.
I was wondering - if I go for a run before my TT workout, do I still need to stretch in preparation for the TT session? If not, I can save a bit of time.
Myofusion ordered - chocolate, as they had no 2lb banana. Should be here within the week. Just had a session in which I upped the ante on several exercises - nice post workout soreness now. We are nuts, aren't we?
-Gastank - is Myofusion supposed to come with a scoop? I received my Milk Chocolate 2lb today, but there's no scoop.
Edit: My bad - there is a scoop, it's just buried within the powder - I read that on another forum.
OK, just had my first glass. Nice! It's like a creamy chocolate milkshake. Now as long as it doesn't make me throw up, we're good to go.
I've changed my abs routine to:
20 x Advanced Crunch (crunches with resistance)
60 x Decline Crunch
20x Reverse Crunch
I'm assuming this is having the desired effect because my abs are afire after that lot!!
I've also been doing some reading and something that's cropped up quite a lot is if you want to build muscle as an 'ectomorph', then you should forget cardio for a while? I'm not sure how sensible that sounds - after all, cardio is the best way to burn fat off isn't it? Cardio burns fat - not muscle.
