The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Whey is good after trainning - absorbed nice and quickley and does the job.

    You may want to take some simple sugars after trainning, it's the best time although you don't actually have to. I currently take Grape juice (with some creatine) followed by a whey shake.

    When i get home i have some Glutamine.

    Within an hour after trainning, i eat some more complex carbohydrate, some more protein and some good fats. Then i go to sleep for a bit.

    I also take Glucosamine sulphate after trainning, along with some vit C, B and E. These extra vitamins are not necessary, but they help with recovery. The glucosamine is for my tendons. Also, you may want to try cod liver oil for joints - keeps them nice and lubricated.

    These are only suggestions for you, not necessities.

    Good luck.

    Here's a tasty one

    8oz water
    16oz milk
    1 banana
    4 egg whites
    Nutmeg
    Cinnamon
    1 tbsp Vanilla Extract

    If you have Vanilla flavored whey, just add a scoop to the shake. If you have strawberry whey, leave out the spices and vanilla extract.

    im glad you mention the glucosamine, when you train heavy this is a must, sometimes eating alone is not enough, and supping with this is a great idea.

    ive been doing this for a while now and i feel 100% each time i hit the iron. im glad others have decided to take care of there joints.

    btw, what brand do you use?

    Shake for me is a good opportunity to get stuff I normally don't like (eg. fruit, I like it but I'm lazy)

    What I have

    1 cup milk
    1 pear
    or 1 apple
    and/or 1 banana
    1/2 cup blueberries or strawberries
    2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
    3 scoops whey protein isolate


    throw it in a blender and drink

    this is my first meal in the morning and my post workout drink

    i also try to vary the fruit (peaches, plums) all with the peel to get you enough fiber. Make sure you wash'em and get organic if u can.

    Gino: Eww...

    Kato: i use a cheap supermarket brand. It costs about £4 for 30 tabs. I think this is an excellent investment, cause they really do work.

    You cannot taste the difference between a shake with or a shake without egg whites.

    I like fruit shakes

    Example:
    1 cup ice
    1/2 cup strawberries
    1 cup pears
    1 banana
    1/2 apple slices



    Blend this all up...you can add as much or as little fruit as you want..taking certain fruits or adding will obviously change the taste a lot, so find what you like and stick with it. Fruit shakes are cheap and taste very good. Sometimes it's good to pour some yogurt in to make the blending easier.
