What bars are you eating?

Pure Protein (probably the worst out there) 20g

MetRX 30g

Gatorade (again, probably terrible) 20g

Builders


I also drink a lot of Fair Life protein milk.

Do you guys try to hit the protein (like protein shakes specifically) on days you don’t lift? I’ve never known if it’s important on cardio days as well. 

I don't life enough to make me want to take them every day.  I lift 3 days per week and try to play bball 2x per week.  I do 1-2 protein bars every day.  On days that I lift I try to put as much protein in my body as possible. 

BR would probably be a better one to answer.

This is something we're really focusing on as well. How much do you weigh? It's something like 0.6-0.8 grams per pound of body weight. Needless to say, it's hard af consuming enough protein in a day.

I hate weighing myself anymore, b/c I'm putting on weight, but it's good weight.  I had lost 60 lbs. when I stopped drinking, and it stayed off for the most part.  I put 10 of it back on over the year, but since I've started lifting, another 10lbs.  I hover 178-180.

I've also really picked up on my protein.  Trying to make sure I eat 100+ grams per day (I honestly have no idea what I need... I didn't research).  I have noticed greater gains when I picked up my protein.  Rocket surgery, I know.

I've been using the "Fitness Online" app, and I really like it.  I pick my focus for my workout series, and it tells me what to do, and it mixes up the muscle group.  Right now I am doing a chest-centric workout, so I will do something like: 

1) Arms

2) Back + Shoulders

3) Chest

4) Legs

5) Chest

I really like it.  Half of the battle is always finding different exercises to target different muscle groups. This app does all of that for you.

So weird that Justin and Brutus both got similar plates with a version "Sample" on them!  Small world!!!!!!!

Kyrie Irving might be one of the stupidest bastards to come along in awhile.  

What'd he do now?

My mom and dad went to Wednesday's game in Chicago, and my GF and I joined them for Thursday's day game.  Thursday was UGLY and the first few innings were boring as crap.  Friedl played awful, but they got the W, and he got a little redemption late.  Center field bleachers were ruthless on him, and it was deserved.  It's probably the first Reds W I've been able to witness in my last 5-6 times seeing them.

Some schools are still requiring masking, which is wild. Is is that hard to admit you were wrong for 2 years? Still laugh seeing people wearing masks at the grocery store. Losers. 

2 years!?  Seriously?  I have an ex-wife that is going 42+ years strong!

We’ll done.  Still think you should have followed Spock’s advice.  It’s always sound.

The last two Saul's have been masterpieces. Breaking Bad level. 

They have been.

That said, not a big fan.  I feel like the series could have easily been condensed into 2 seasons.  I said early in S1 that it was an indulgent, slow burn that would never have happened if not for Breaking Bad.

What a damn awesome movie. It’s rare to have anything these days that pretty much everyone loves and no one complains about. Maverick is easily on that list.

Stick around.  Give it time.
