Workout and BEST NEW WAY TO TAKE PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS!

Saturday, June 2, 2007 3:10 AM
First, the workout:

Bike
5 min warmup
10 1:1 (lvl 1 @ 140 RPM, lvl 20 @ 50 RPM...those were my goals anyway, and as long as I hit that for 75% of the minute I was happy)

Weights

20 side raises @ 30 lbs/hand (-10 reps)
20 straight raises @ 30 lbs/hand (-10 reps)
20 military press @ 30 lbs/hand (-10 reps)
20 bent over rows (modified) @ 30 lbs/hand (-10 reps)
30 straight arm pulldowns (triceps) @ 55 lbs/hand
30 bench press @ 30 lbs each hand
30 bench flies @ 30 lbs each hand
40 leg press @ 240 lbs (+10 lbs)
30 hamstrings @ 190 (-5 lbs Didn't realize it was 195 last time)
30 row @ 105 lbs (+5 lbs)
40 shoulder shrugs @ 40lbs/hand (+5 lbs/hand)

So obviously this was my first workout in a week, and it showed...I'm kicking myself for not finishing another set of 10 clover reps (the side raises, straight raises, military press, and bent over rows), but if I can hit the gym 3 times this week instead of just the once I did this last one, I should be alright. Haven't done many crunches lately either...hmm...

And now...

THE BEST NEW WAY TO TAKE PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS EV-AR!

So I got home from the gym, got out my jug of GNC-brand chocolate flavoured whey-protein, and my L-Glutamine, and proceeded to open the fridge to get the milk out. EGAD, there's no milk!!! Curses...what do I do? Being a solution-minded developer, I consider what other beverages implement the IBeverage interface in my fridge and in doing so create a beverage so amazing that EVERYONE will be drinking it after workouts. It combines muscle building protein with mind-alerting caffeine. So here's what you do: in a blender combine 1 scoop chocolate flavoured protein, teaspoon of L-Glutamine, and the secret ingredient...

Cherry Flavoured Coke One.

I kid you not...crazy delicious AND good for you! It tastes like a coke float, but chocloate-cherry flavored...and it goes down way easier than if you mix with milk.

Try one today, I swear you'll be a fan.

the sugar in the coke offsets the protein....also the caffeine will mkae your pump not only go away but shrink your muscles 6/5/2007 12:53 PM | Corey

No no, its Coke ONE, not regular Coke. Coke One = new branding of Diet Coke (although you can still get Diet Coke...but Coke One tastes better, and no sugar).

Hmmm...another reason to not like caffeine...maybe they'll come out with Caffeine Free Coke One...then everything will come together...
