    Protein Bars?

    I'll check out the rise bars. I might do some reading on how working with whey is different than flours and such and maybe try to science some bars that I can at least choke down that are in the area of 20-25 g/normal sized serving. Also, sorta related. I got from myprotein salted caramel and mocha flavored and both of them are pretty good. Caramel is a bit sweet but good tase

    Protein Bars?

    As far as commercial bars go, these have been my goto for about a year now.... Basically just whey protein, almond butter and honey. They have the familiar C4 consistency we've come to expect from protein bars but they taste good.

    Protein Bars?

    If you find a good protein bar recipe, let us know. I haven't found a good bar recipe yet. I had the same experience you did: Most of the online recipes seem like they're built around taste or Instagram worthiness, not macros. It might help to open your search up to "ball" recipes. It's trendy to have "paleo balls" or "protein balls". When I go keto, I think 20% of my diet is "keto balls".
  7. I think it was elite fitness. Looks like they don't sell anything anymore. I can't really even find mixes on Amazon. Lots of recipes, though.
  8. We are doing every possible vaccine and doing them on time. The immune reaction to the vaccine pales in comparison to getting sick. The gym was closed Monday and Wednesday for basketball games and i teach all day on Friday, so no gym for me this week.
  9. If you are looking for a bar to tide you over while you find a recipe, I have a soft spot for Robert Irving's protein bar. It's probably the best I've ever had, and I long ago gave up on finding a good bar, so it was surprising to me when they were good. Macros are pretty much as you would expect for a serving: 190kcal, 16P, 8F, 14C I remember buying a protein bar mix from one of mind and muscles vendors that was pretty decent, but I can't remember their name...rhey were the assholes who we selling canned air as a performance enhancer. Lol
  10. Like ras said, it's a dense superset of 20 x 2 overhand push downs and 20x2 underhand. It's best done with a partner and short rest periods just so you can truly know pain.

    Protein Bars?

    Hey guys, Checking to see if anyone knows of any homemade recipe bases that have a proper amount per bar. The recipes you find online are all between 5 and 8 grams/serving. Granted, they're for recipes of 12 so I could just eat 2-3 of them but that comes with lots of fats and carbs since most of them have a pretty large amount of peanut butter in them. I'm looking for, ideally 10-15+ grams/bar that you could modify as needed to give some variety. Obviously I could do something like the metrx bars that are 30-40 grams but those are garbage. If not, I may hyave to make some of my own even though my experiences with cooking with protein powder have always ended mediocrely. Also, not a huge preference re: cooked or uncooked
  12. Sam's IP. IIRC, it is a superset of over/over and then under/under tricep pushdowns @ 20 reps.
  13. What's Triceps Hell? Google and YouTube were more confusing than enlightening.
  14. TOday's workout went a little sideways and I followed my tried and tested bench session outside of the 8x2 bench format. Bench 45x20 135x10 185x10 225x5 255x1 275x2x8S Pec-deck 140, 150, 160, 170x8 Reverse flyes 4 sets of 8. I think it was 120, 130, 140, 120x10 Triceps Hell Over: 80x20 85x20 Under: 65x20 57x20 Great set: DB Hammer: 50x8x3 EX Bar curls: 70x8, 60x8, 60x6 Skullcrusher machine 3 sets of 8 Ellipticalx10minutes
  15. The hand has been forced. Now that it's impacting my other eye (I didn't mean my other eye when I said my other eyelid above; I meant the upper half vs lower half) I have no choice but to take some time off.
  16. DTaP is relatively safe and well tolerated (today). DPT of yesteryear was not, and that was the vaccination that caused my encephalopathy. I think most kids experience the most *pain* from MMR. My kids said it was the worst vaccination for that reason. Flu shots can be shitty for me, but the folks in my family are fine with them-and this year I was OK.
  17. IIRC, the main culprit is the Dyptheria Tetanus Pertussis (DTaP) shot....this is, of course most important one too because of the near 100% mortality from a tetanus infection. i don’t recall any of the other vaccinations causing anything behind a quick upset at being stuck,
  18. I am not at all sad that I delayed my children's vaccinations. We got momentary unhappiness which was almost always ameliorated by a trip to a candy store...
  19. Damn. Might just be time to take some work and gym time off and recuperate.
  20. OK, so realizing that I need to get more work in, I've opened myself up to this "offseason" program. It's a lot of work, and I'll need to see how I can fit it all in on days that I am working and my kids are going to school. I think that without interruptions, and with some creative supersetting, it can be done, and I hope to also get some cardio in with it. Today: Week 1-3 SxR Weight Day 1 Squat 6x3 75% Backwards Sled Drag 8 Heavy Leg Curls 8x6 15 rep max Leg Ext 8x8 20 rep max Pull Throughs 8x8 Heavy Leg Press 8x8 Heavy Squat 135x8 185x5 225x5 275x3 315x3 375x3x6S Sled Pulls 145x2 195x2 245x2 295x2 Leg Curls 35x6x8S Superset Leg Extension 115x8x8S Leg Press 270x8 360x8 450x8 450x8 450x8 450x8 450x8 270x8 Ellipticalx12m(in) I skipped pull throughs, because I couldn't figure out how to do them to make them work. I'm thinking I might attempt to do this in a superset with the leg press, but basically do good mornings on the Rhino/pit squat machine.
  21. Concentrate not on the drop during treatment, but the 20 day recovery to normal...
  22. My wife likes Garfunkel and Oates too. I find some of their songs amusing. This one is ok. My daughter got her first round of shots on Friday, so she's been pretty surly all weekend. Had to miss the gym on Friday because of that and haven't gotten much of a break all weekend. Going to try to go to the gym today and Wednesday this week, but I'll have to miss Friday again because I teach a 3 day course over the weekend, starting Friday.
  23. He's very old and broken like me so I think he'll write a good program for my specific geriatric needs. I haven't talked to him in forever so we're gonna catch up and do some game planning tonight. I told him I'd like to start with some movement pattern work and some moderate lifting so we'll see what happens. He's also the type with the same tendencies as me wrt intensity but I think between the two of us we can keep it in check if we're mindful of it
  24. That's a nice deal from your friend. I'm interested to follow along with your workout program
  25. Started my gym membership with Adrienne today. Gonna start lifting tomorrow. I'm thinking I'm gonna let a buddy write me up a program because that's what he does now and I'm afraid that if I jump right into something hardcore that it'll end up breaking me down again and forcing me out in a couple of weeks. I know that'll be my natural tendency so I need someone to write me something that I won't have to think about and can be a gradual buildup. He seems like he's pretty good at it too since he's shown me some stuff he's done for old friends of his. Plus we go back like 25 years so he's offering free of charge. I'm gonna start the peloton again tomorrow as well since I enjoy it and I'm trying with the idea of Pelotonia (a bike riding fund raiser for cancer research). Maybe something like their 35 or 50 mile route, depending on how I feel by signups. Started today with just a walk. 30 minutes, 1.75 miles. Felt good to be moving again even though it wasn't much.
