Quick question for you Chris, how often do you take protein shakes? When do you take them during the day? Is there a difference of how many your taking on your bulking stage?
I was always told that after a certain amount of grams of protein (I wanna say 24 grams.... don't hold me to that) and your body just flushes it out and doesn't absorb it properly. That's why I only take one protein shake, always post work-out.
Read the article Chris posted at 7:09, it's directly related to this.
There's all sorts of unreliable and contradictory information on the web regarding supplements and fitness. Even in magazines. I always take them with a grain of salt, as should everyone.Ken/Flemith, share this 5X5 workout!
Not when the information is backed by research, and references to different studies that were published are listed on the bottom of his article. Layne Norton is one smart guy, he's constantly doing research related to sports nutrition.

Especially with how lacking in nutrients and whole foods a majority of people's diets are. It's not easy to get all that you need from food alone, hence why vitamins and shakes are beneficial.
Where does everyone lift at?? Myself i go to the gym at work (pretty sweet since i can drop weights and has a power rack, which is where 90 percent of my exercises are.
I'm starting to get the itch to go back to the gym... This thread hasn't motivated though, I just know that for every 30ish pounds you lose, guys gain an 1" hahaI've always been curious of lifting, and the idea of burning fat and building muscles at the same time sounds kick ass...I'm definitely going to read more about that.
what kind of motivation are you looking for? The idea of gaining muscle and burning fat is simple. The higher the muscle mass you carry, the more calories they need for everyday function, therefore increasing your basal metabolic rate (which you can calculate here http://health.discovery.com/centers/heart/basal/basal.html)
