    What kinda protein do yall use?? I've been using Whey Isolate, but ive been considering switching it up to a veggie based protein. Found some at costco that is Pea/Hemp Protein and seems to be made with some decently clean ingredients and its decently priced. Would love to see other ideas though. Sorry if ive asked this already.

    Hemp protein is good, I haven't found any that tastes decent lol, but it definitely is a quality alternative.

    Lol thats what im worried about mainly is the taste. I've heard that vegetable based protein is better for the body than Whey protein, but who knows. Figured id give it a shot though. The one at costco is chocolate flavor and im already not too crazy about chocolate flavored protein.

    You can mix it up or blend it with other stuff, I'm lazy though, I'll mix some aminos or BCAAs with it in a shaker, and that helps a little .

    I'm not sure what type of protein is better, but I'm hearing hemp is more efficient, and easily digested.

    i work out my whole body 4-5 days a week

    If you’re able to do that consistently without needing rest days due to soreness then you need to up the intensity of your workouts.

    i have soreness on m,w,f cause i do some extra things on those days but in my mind i need to do it that much because i want to lose weight since i cant really do cardio because of my knee. and what do you mean by intensity?

    What type of knee impairment do you have?

    i tore my acl and meniscus in august

    You can always hit the battle ropes, mixing that up with some core exercises can get the heart rate up. I like to go 30 seconds on the ropes, do a min plank, throw in some legs lifts or Russian twists, rest for a min and do it again 3 or 4 times.

    @Lou_Cypher a lot of them taste bland but the one's with the best taste have a lot of carbs. Just remember protein really only helps repair muscles. If your looking to build muscle go heavier and increase your protein but that is not good for the keto diet that you've been on.

    Yeah I've been working on trying to eat more. I think lately my protein has been pretty high, fat still higher, but probably not by much. Hard to eat more on keto though as all the fat and protein keeps you full for hours haha. I only eat one big meal a day with a bunch of snacks in between most days, but food intake has definitely been on my mind lately. Maybe I'll just add more salads with nuts and meats since it's lighter than most stuff I eat.

    Man, I love hitting that heavy bag! Still doing my power and strength training, along with the bag. Went to the gym the last 2 days after missing all of last week due to my Ulcerative Proctitis condition flaring up, and some pain in my left shoulder.

    Hemp protein is a little too gritty for me, the veggie/pea/rice/plant shit is all good...anything that i cant pronounce or understand its purpose to the ingredients I leave alone

    They also dont create that fake muscle look like the whey and soy do

    If you have a Vitamin Shoppe or Vitamin World they usually have the best qualities, GNC too but they price their shit too high

    Yeah unfortunately gnc is all we got up here lol. Couple indie supplement stores, but they ushall over price too. Will try that costco brand first but probably do some more research and order some online.

    So afteemr three years of kettlebell training i have came to that conclusion.

    Once you want to wield 50% of your bodyweight you need get really stronger in the shoulders, lats, abs and arms. That means that i will have to go back to the gym in order to target the shoulders and back region.

    Still on that 88 lbs kettlebell. Its more than half my weight. In order to snatch, clean and TGU it i must be able to do a clean one arm pushup and shoulder press 90 lbs and deadlift 180 lbs minumum.

    I have to go back to the gym.
