Tuesday Workout & Vegetarian Protein Update

Wrote up a quick and possibly controversial vegetarian protein update, including the most recent vegetarian weight loss study results.

Visit my other blog at www.TTFatLoss.com to learn more about it.

And now for today's workout...

1) Overhead Squat – 95x5

2A) Medium Stance Parallel Squat – 315x2x5, 325x3
2B) Inverted Row – 22, 18

3A) Olympic Squat (full squat) – 185x3x10
3B) Eccentric Cable External Rotations – 2x8

4) Back Extension – 3x12

Pretty good.

Off to Cali, but will deadlift on Thursday. Hopefully will find a Gold's Gym near Newport Beach.

Stay strong!

And just say NO to protein shakes,

Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Mr. Ballantyne,

I realize that you're a very busy man, so this may be a long shot........you should check out some of the ideas being espoused by Christian Thibaudeau on the T-Nation forums about protein pulsing, optimal para-training nutrition, and maximizing hypertrophy.

I am not sure how you'd feel about this, since even on the low end they're still favoring the use of more protein than it seems you'd support under most circumstances. ANd you'd likely scoff at the use of protein shakes. But you seem like an open-minded and well-educated man who would examine things critically and put them in the proper light.

A future nutrition-related post on some of the above topics would be excellent. But if that's out of the question, I understand. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. It is much appreciated!

Craig - One thing you've got to do in the future is post a video of one of your 375 lb. deadlifts!

I'm with you on those protein shakes. Used up the last of my protein powder this week and am not planning on getting any more.
