    I need whey protein. Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard or Muscle Milk?

    IIRC, Muscle Milk is still banned by the NCAA, although the quantities of the banned substance within are insignificant. Just so there is no confusion, the protein within muscle milk is a mixture of casein, milk protein (Milk protein is not a category of protein types [whey, casein, etc]...

    I need whey protein. Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard or Muscle Milk?

    Of the two, I would pick ON. However, for my next order, I am picking up a 25 pound bag from trueprotein.com for dirt cheap. I emailed them and asked for a sample which they promptly sent out and I liked it. Win.

    I did not expect this when I signed up for Online Tennis

    6 hours later I am more than halfway done, although I don't think I will ever fully recover.

    Which colleges have YOU been accepted to?

    Glad to know I am not the only Stanford reject. So far, accepted to UW+honors, rejected by Stanford, waiting on Rice and Princeton. I will probably not take Rice over UW at this point because of the availability of bioengineering/related internships and jobs in the Seattle area, so I've pretty...

    I did not expect this when I signed up for Online Tennis

    In order to graduate from high school I have to take an extra semester of PE through a BYU independent study course. I am extremely frustrated just minutes into starting it because I have fill out the assignments as if I am a crazed coach spitting dogma from the 60s. Here's an example:

    Light and Lean vs. Big and Strong

    Hmmmm, it's odd that the title rules out the possibility of being light and strong, lean and big, or lean and strong. IMO, it's all about your strength-weight ratio. Nothing else really matters--if you're 6'0 without any flexibility issues and have a 5 minute mile along with a 36" vertical...

    does HIIT (high intensity interval training} really work?

    All this talk of people doing HIIT with 1 minute intervals is cracking me up. That is interval training, but certainly not high intensity interval training. HIIT involves maximum effort intervals. Even world-class athletes are not capable of sprinting for 1 minute straight, and they certainly...

    workout schedule for those playing 4-5 times/week?

    If you're going to be lifting on days you play tennis, always lift after you play. Same goes for sprinting, unless you are training to play while exhausted (some coaches think this is helpful occasionally.) If you're just beginning to lift weights you can probably handle lifting 3 days a week...

    Don't let your kids lift weights!!! DANGER!

    his bf looks to be around 8% or lower, but he does look healthy. IMO, if the kid likes to do it, let him (but it should be done with a little more safety in mind...) He seems VERY happy in the videos.

    Difference between military press and shoulder press

    That's what I've heard, but it doesn't really matter. After all, people call bent-knee goodmornings "squats", so you know there is much worse terminology confusion out there.

    which is a better weightlifting strategy?

    I'm lifting full body 3 days a week. I don't see why anyone interested in athletics would choose a bodypart split (aside from upper/lower) because in an athletic, compound movement, isolation is impossible (i.e. no, benching does not just work your triceps and pecs.) I would start with...

    How good is a 3 star recruit

    Sounds like walking on to me, so you're only trying for a spot on the practice squad? Ranked players on tennis recruiting always have a star. Otherwise they are unrated/unranked. I've never seen an unranked player beat a three star without later getting a much higher ranking (A foreign...

    How good is a 3 star recruit

    I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but if you are an unranked player, there is virtually no chance of you walking on to that team (if the lowest recruit is a 3 star). And chances are, if you don't know how solid a 3 star is, there is probably an even smaller chance that you would be able...

    Endurance training without losing weight?

    Add endurance training and eat as many extra calories as you are burning with the added endurance training. Bam, no weight loss. Edit: for the endurance training I recommend HIIT. Start with very little volume and work your way up (your first session might not even last two minutes if you're...

    Please Help with Staying Awake...

    1. Shorten your practice. There isn't any way that you're effectively using 5 hours. 2. Shorten your running session by switching to sprints, which in addition to taking less time are also MUCH more applicable to tennis than long-distance running. 3. Convince your "weights" teacher to let you...

    How many miles run in tennis?

    There isn't any carryover for this statistic to training because of the rest intervals in tennis, as well as the difference in movement patterns. Running forward in a straight line at a constant speed for one single period of time will not condition you to move laterally as quickly as possible...

    Anyone Know A WEIGHT training program for increasing speed?

    Firing of fast twitch muscles is not dependent on the speed at which they contract (which you would assume by the name) but by the force which is required to move the load present. When you sprint, you are moving faster than when you jog, so the total force required is higher, thereby requiring...

    People to People Sports Ambassador Program

    I'm sure you could get 2-3 years of twice-weekly private lessons for less than the cost of a p2p program.
