What are some great things I can add to a protein powder shake to ensure I am getting about 10-15% of my daily carbs and (healthy) fats in the shake, too?

Aiming for the 5-6 smaller "meals" a day thing, with 2-3 meal replacement shakes a day.

Cheers.

Sometimes when I'm not lazy, I'll add in frozen bananas. (Peel them and put the in the freezer, in a ziplock bag). Then blend it in.

Yeah my favorite shake is frozen banana, frozen blueberries, spinach leaves, protein.

I got my first 10K tomorrow, don't feel ready for it like I should so I'm hoping it goes well despite that.

Just bought the Gold's Gym 7 in 1 Body Building System (the door frame pull up bar/perfect pushup/shake-weight set). Pull ups are harder than I remember since the last time I did them 5-6 years ago, but this should help me get in better shape (which I have progressively been doing for the last 3 months since surgery).

I had the goal of dropping weight at first when I started getting back to fairly intense workouts. I dropped 10 pounds (from 190 to 180) and then stabilized. I was thinking get under 170lb, but now I'm concentrating less on the number on the scale and more on the general improvements in performance and body shape. I have been 180 for about 2 months now, but I have a much better "V" shape and I'm just more toned in general, so I am at least substituting fat for muscle, and thus the not caring about the number anymore.

If you have the mental fortitude to stick with that schedule, props to ya. hahaha

Anyway, I remember when I was desperate to gain mass, I used to add 6-7 bananas with my 2 scoops of whey and 500mL of milk. You could also do what sunsfan suggested. Very healthy and incredibly tasty (just make sure you could get a good powder. I suggest Dymatize.). All types of starchy fruits, berries, and even leaves should do you good.

Myth: You wanna trade? I've been steadily going up in weight and my goal for the year is to break 180 lbs, which I'm 8 away from. Started my journey at 158 last March. And yeah, I really think the mirror is your progress measurement tool.

Anyone got any tips for jumpers knee? (Patellar tendonitis)

I started getting in to good shape playing bball/football and the occasional weight session. Felt a niggle in my knee and kept playing on it for a while, got progressively worse, doc gave me the diagnosis and yea, basically all I got told was rest and ice. Done all the research I can on the net, but want to see if someone out there has had it/got it and if their methods work.

I hate not being able to run or play sports.

For me, icing after has been huge. I also stay as flexible as possible. Lots of yoga and stretching. My physio showed me a great hip flexor stretching exercise that has really helped. I can try to explain it if you really want...

Sure man, I'm all ears at the moment. It's been an on-going issue for me for 3-4 months now, and just ain't getting better. I've read doing squats to strengthen the quads etc and calf raises to strengthen the calves and lunges etc but just can't seem to find anything to help. I read the tendonitis is usually caused due to a muscle in-balance, and to fix it, you have to find out where the inbalance is or whatever. I've tried numerous things, mostly ice & rest, but I start getting a bit active again, like a slow jog or whatever, and immediately after I stop, I can feel it flaring up again.

I've had it. It took me a while to get over it. I bought a brace but it didn't really help. I didn't feel like going to a professional so I did some research myself and read what you just said. I bought ankle weights and started doing various leg workouts and it has worked for me. This was back in highschool before I started legitimately working out.

Stretch and try to find some exercises you do at home, it helped me more than the doctor who told me that there was nothing wrong.

Start doing front squats. And trust me when I say this, start light. I'm talking ridiculously light. I started squatting a quarter of the weight on front squats that I usually would on back squats. It'll target all your weak spots and help immensely with your posture. By the 4th week you'll start noticing a few changes in your strength distribution when playing sports.

Thanks for both replies. I'll def. look in to both. Never considered either ankle weights or front squats, so ill look in to both and try incorporate them in to some routine. I try to ice a couple times a day, and stretch before a game or workout. Usually stretch the calves/hamstrings and that's it. Prob be a good idea to google some stretches and start doing them every day I guess.

Moving along nicely.

Knocked down 12 chins with +45, and 5 dips with +115. Sprints are progressing as well. It takes a lot to get fatigued.
Did 42 reps of 135 @ 161 lbs earlier with no food. Not full range of motion though lol. Probably half that then.


Road race coming up November.


Right now I remind myself of:

Vernon Davis
Nate Robinson
Ashton Eaton
David Goggins
Michael Jai White
George St. Pierre

and the greatness they were capable of.

WORK THAT ASS. Literally.

Most people have knee problems that are partly due to their inability to fire thei glutes. I suggest doing some glute bridges, bowler squats (basically a one-legged deadlift), and planks with maximum bodily tension (i front properly, you'll feel it even in your quads and glutes). The previous suggestions should also do you good.

Good to see Front Squats getting some recognition. This is my favorite squat (mainly coz it's the only squat I can do hahaha) and it teaches you a lot of good habits needed for pretty much all lifts.

Also be sure to get on some whey protein, drink one shake a day with milk and that should be around 28-40grams of protein alone.

Tuna is good, but I am not sure about adding mayo, kinda adds alll the fats you don't need into it...
