So I was doing deadlifts this morning and nearly passed out. What the hell? I hadn't had any caffeine, just a few swigs of a protein/creatine concoction and I don't think my blood pressure was up or that I was holding my breath.
Am I going to die?
It could be by a bus tomorrow or in 50 years time surrounded by satiated, satisfied nymphs, glowing from your masterful efforts and awash in empty chocolate wrappers.
But it's going to happen to you.
(Though hopefully, not to me).
So I have a film shoot in about a month and I wanted to tone up my arms. A while back one of my friends was on this push-up routine, something about adding more push-ups consecutively everyday. any recommendations for such a program?
i found this thread: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=88415
after reading it i got a little nervous with emevas talking about shoulder injuries from too many push ups without pulling; would doing a couple sets of body rows every day counter-balance all the pushing?
Can you work trigger points out of your muscles completely, or is massaging them until the symptoms and pain and all subside enough?
I've recently read into what they are, found some in my shoulder that have been fucking with it for years. I've worked on them for a few weeks, no pain anymore but I can still feel them in there. Just wondering if they actually completely dissipate or if painlessness is the total outcome.
The short version is that "trigger points" as described by Travell and Simmons are at best a useful construct for thought, but very inaccurate in terms of actual physical processes.
Some good research has been done showing that areas of firmness do not always (or even often) correlate to areas of tenderness, so hunting for lumpy stuff in hopes of resolving pain may not make sense. If you feel good and are able to perform the tasks you like, hunting "trigger points" is going to make you worry more than anything else.

Thanks Jazz, I had a feeling it went something like that. I'm about to read the links now.
I have a few questions. Pea protein is at about the price that whey used to be, $5/lbs or so. Is there any reason not to stuff myself full of pea protein as opposed to whey?
What the hell happened to trueprotein? That site used to be tits, is there something out there that works like how trueprotein used to work? (make your own mixes and also well priced)
I find most questions about when to ingest things kind of silly, but there's a lot of info out there on how and when to take creatine. If you mostly build muscle while you sleep, and creatine is supposed to help facilate that, wouldn't it be best to take creatine a bit before going to sleep? I suppose I'm having the same thoughts about any "recovery" supplement.

And it's all different, and different scares me. I remember there being a ton of variation available in the mixes you can make, where now it seems to be just protein and carbs.Quote:
Have you tried Google? It forwards to their new site.
That makes more sense. There's way too much non-info out there on creatine.Quote:
Creatine's big benefit in muscle gain is increased ability to recover between sets. It stays in the system after you've been ingesting sufficient amounts long enough. It does not matter when you take it.
