Maybe a stupid question but can you break/fracture a rib without realising you have done it at the time?

Done a light/speed squat sesh on Saturday (with a belt) and then all week have felt a little uncomfortable (moving and breathing) on my lower right rib. Stupidly I did heavy strict OHP yesterday (felt fine at the time) and then couldnt sleep due to the pain and struggled to get out of bed this morning. I am in pain breathing, walking and generally any movement (its amazing how much you use your core in everything you do).

There is no visible bruising or swelling so im confident its just something minor but just wanted anyones opinion.

Cheers guys I'll give it a go and hopefully push on for the 140 goal I set for this year 😀
» Log Press routine (Go to post)21-01-2016 @ 15:42 
I currently have a 130 max log and just wondered what routines people follow to improve this lift?

I currently just work up in doubles to around 110 and then do singles up to 130 when im attempting a max. For all other pressing I follow 531 and wondered whether this would work for log press? Also, when you rep the log, is every rep FTOH or would you just clean it the once and then rep from your shoulders?

Any particular reason?

Because I dont want to give him any of mine lol

In all seriousness though I just feel that at 14 he should be able to absorb enough nutrients through eating and drinking 'normal' foods that I dont want to start supplementing his diet just yet.

Some really good advice here thankyou, I will take on board all of your comments and come up with a few different recipes for him to try.

Just wanted to let you all know though that he was successful with his trial and has been selected for the academy team now and has since played a number of high profile games against big clubs including Man U and Chelsea. The academy deliver various educational lessons including nutrition, so im sure he will be given the best advice possible regarding what he should and shouldnt be eating.

McMuffin_Gains said:i second oats,

If you have a good blender/smoothie maker you will barely notice them. I have one of those nutribullet things which does a good job, my old one was crap and used leave big lumps of oats in which were less than pleasant to 'drink'.

I'd leave the eggs, you're not going to get a huge protein or energy hit out of a couple and you always risk salmonella which could prove catastrophic if he has important games in front of scouts etc.

As Paul said, dextrose would be a good addition. That way you would have a variety of energy sources from lactose, dextrose, fructose, complex carbs and fats. Not much need for protein 'pre workout' in this case.

Good luck to your lad Happy

Thanks mate, I've got a nutribullet also so will add the oats from now on and forget about the eggsHappy

ok mate thanks

yeah thought about oats, ill try that tonight. I just wanted to have a couple of different recipes so that he didnt get bored with flavours etc

If I removed the whey protein (to keep cost down) do you think it would be okay to crack an egg or two in there also?

I know its not strength related and I apologise for that but I am after a little advice and I know there are some nutrition gurus on here.

My 14 year old son is currently having trials for a football academy and things are looking promising. Due to the higher intensity and frequency of his training sessions I have increased his food intake to cope with the demand. I ensure that he eats a well balanced diet but understand he is only 14 so dont do silly things with his diet like macros etc.

Due to my work hours and his school we only really get around 15 mins to change and then get him to his training. I ensure that he has something to eat before training as it usually lasts around 2 hours. For convenience though last night I made him a shake (milk, peanut butter, banana and a little whey protein) which he gulped down and said that it gave him better energy and concentration at training as it didnt sit so heavy on his stomach like a meal would. So my question is this; what home made PWO shakes would you recommend for my aspiring pro footballer? I would like to avoid using whey protein and would listen to any recommendations.

Thanks in advance

Portsmouth, but I live in basingstoke so I don't get down too often - tbh I mostly catch them over in tidworth for trade and pirbright for shooting.
Is it Wednesday afternoon stuff mostly, or are there weekend comps?
Are there association/club fees?
Can I get paid, or at least claim fuel? I went to a navy powerlifting comp a few years back out of my own pocket but duty rumour is it counts as duty if it meets some (mythical) criteria

Unfortunately as a relatively new sport in the Forces there is no funding for individual athletes expenses, we only get funding for kit and equipment at the mo. That being said though, we are a recognised REME sport so if you have an MT department you should be able to get duty transport using our admin instructions as your authority.

The majority of comps are held on Wednesdays and because I'm based in bristol the majority of our comps are held down south. As a REME soldier you will be classed as 'on duty' whilst competing.

Drop me a pm with your DII address and I can send you more info matr
