      None of that research applies to participants of P90X, their bodies are too confused.

      Always started with a good greens + starch + fruit meal. After that, used to use Isopure Perfect between 2006-2008 (stopped because my lactose intolerance came back fulltime)...then I started using NitroFusion 2008-stopped buying when it was discontinued...for the past month i've been using Arbonne protein powder [that of which I distribute]. Looking forward to a swift return from Nitrofusion though. But with those powders, I always put in a teaspoonful of L-glutamine, with a pinch of cinnamon. Works wonders for me.

      I mix it myself with my own ingredients and never buy the prebottled stuff.

      Me also...skim chocolate milk is the best and its cheap....

      Check out this article by Dr. Casey Butt.
      He contrasting opinions to modern training techniques and recent developments like the pre-training and recovery drinks that you're supposed to drink less than 1 hour after lifting etc.

      Basically he points to the 1950's bodybuilders and the kinds of training they did before steroids existed and he believes that modern strength training information is polluted by the kinds of training regimes steroid using bodybuilders use because their pre-competition training regimes get so much attention in magazines.


      It's kind of interesting when you consider that these 50's bodybuilders don't look any different than modern steroid-free bodybuilders and yet they didn't have any supplements at all and their training was completely different. It supports this other article I was reading in the Journal of Exercise Physiology that said
      Genetic factors apparently have a very strong influence on how people respond to the exact resistance training protocol. That is, responses are primarily determined by genetics, not by specific training protocols.
      Basically their study just found that we are genetically predisposed and all strength training has the same effectiveness. Doing one set 3 times per week had nearly identical results to doing three sets three times per week etc. It's pretty interesting stuff.

      Yeah he talks a lot about compound exercises but the third section goes into a nice long rant about supplements.

      I can't count how many times I've seen guys in the gym wimp out on a set of squats and put the bar back with good reps left in them (if they even do squats), yet those same guys will whip out a bottle of some useless, overpriced capsules of God-knows-what when their workout is finished and think they're accomplishing something. Let me tell you, there isn't a supplement on Earth that's as anabolic as that one extra squat would have been had they been man enough to do it. But they'll sit on the bench with their hopes in a little bottle of pills of ground up weeds from God-knows-where and not supported by a shred of peer reviewed scientific evidence. These people need to wake up!

      A hearty calorie dense shake during my workout consisting of powdered oats, fats, milk and whey. Post workout it's milk and whey.

      I am going to give this a shot.. It sounds like it would be perfect in the morning when no time for a decent breakfast...

      In my opinion packed drinks are not more healthy and beneficial for the health and fitness.
      You should try to take some thing natural such as fresh fruits juices or fruits and milk shakes or protein shakes to get rich amount of energy and for the muscles recovery.

      My post workout drink is in the morning so it kind of doubles as my 2nd breakfast as well. It may look kind of gross but it's actually delicious and a good way to get some calories in since I'm trying to gain.

      I usually have to fill my shaker cup twice with this from the blender...

      2 cups of 2% milk
      a carton of all whites (equal to 10 egg whites) they are just pasteurized plain egg whites nothing else is added at all ie not egg beaters....
      2 scoops of whey protein powder strawberry cause pink is manly (usually whatever is on sale)
      1 Tbs natural peanut butter
      1 avocado
      1 tub of plain or vanilla greek yoghurt
      cup or 2 of frozen berries/fruit/banana/blueberries whatever I feel like that day.

      Gotta hand it to you- that is a hell of a good mix for weight gain. Gotta pay to play- looks expensive to drink twice a day everyday.

      Oh I didn't mean to say that I drink that twice....It's just so much liquid that it ends up filling an entire blender so I have to split it up into two containers to drink. I drink them both right away though.

      When I wake up around 350-400 am I don't really have time to cook a real breakfast so I drink some water w/ protein powder and eat a piece of fruit to get some energy (about 45 min before my workout) On my way to the gym I drink a cup of coffee.

      It's kind of expensive but it's the easier to follow for me since I have a blender at work...Everyone loves watching me dump random **** into the blender

      That was hilarious. Aren't those egg whites a rip tho, compared to just eggs removing the yolk?

      It kind of is a rip off...but I'm paying for the practicality I guess...I take them w/ me to work and make this at work every day. The other issue is drinking raw eggs from the shell (these are pasteurized) but the ingredients is just 100% egg whites.

      Oh and I hate the taste of eggs..never really been a fan so this way I can mix in 10 eggs and never notice the difference.

      I think you can get away with 6 basic movements, bench, row, squat, dead, overhead press and pull ups. I build my workouts around these but I usually sub a wide upright row for overhead presses because they seem easier on my shoulders.

      The only problem I see with that article is that T-Nation posted an article on intermittent fasting a while back that contradicts a lot of the info in that article.

      I always prefer water or shake(fruits or protein)And in my point of view this is the best option for this.
