Anyone have suggestions for a good protein powder to add to oatmeal that doesn't taste horrible? I used to use PE Science Snickerdoodle years ago but I'd rather not purchase that again.

Anytime i mix whey with hot oatmeal, the texture is really weird or it doesn't mix properly. I've found vegan protein mixes best but thats just my personal opinion!

Hm, ON double chocolate is always my go to protein powder but I thought it might be weird in oatmeal. I'll give it a shot. If not I'll go with the myprotein one. Thanks all

I remember on page 8 someone posted an Amazon link so some good cheap wireless headphones but the link is gone; any other reccomendations?
I gotchu boo. I've since upgraded to Bose wireless headphones but tbh, these are seriously almost as good for a fraction of the cost...


THANK YOU BOO!!!

So I just saw on a random fit person's IG stories, a post saying they cry while lifting. And then a video of her crying while hip thrusting??? I'm just curious if y'all have ever done this yourself or seen this before?

lol, i've never cried while lifting...i guess i can see how pain would make you cry, but at that point, you should probably back off.

Yeah, I almost cried after a set the other week because I had a lot on my mind, but that was my cue to leave. The gym was just not happening at that point. I'd argue crying could distract you on certain lifts and put you at risk of injury.

100%. I've had multiple workout sessions completely wrecked before because of work texts and I wasn't even crying! When something (whether it be emotional, work/life stress, etc) gets you out of the "zone", I completely believe it could lead to increased risk of injury. You have to focus when lifting weights!

I've definitely been there (get completely distracted/something takes me out of the "zone"), I've just not personally experienced crying while lifting, so it seemed odd to me, seems like maybe I was wrong!

It's basically a MLM for supplements.

Quality is mediocre, products way overpriced.

Stay away from proprietary blends

Has anyone here actually noticed a difference in performance drinking pre-workout vs no pre-workout?
I feel like all I find in google is people raving about them because they're sponsored or PT bashing them and saying they're a waste of money but I haven't heard any reviews from people who take them.

I mean, if I'm completely dragging it definitely helps wake me up and feel more ready to workout, but it's nothing a coffee and a light meal (or getting a good night's sleep) couldn't do. I hate that itchy feeling most of them have so I don't take any anymore. I feel like if you like the taste of one and don't find it too expensive go for it, but it's nothing more than an energy drink at the end of the day. Whatever else they put in there doesn't do much other than make you feel like you want to jump out of your skin. Your nutrition, sleep, and actual workout matter much more than any supplement.

I feel like they are a little cult-like.... What do you mean proprietary blends stay away?

It means they have their secret blend, so you don't get to know the exact amounts of the ingredients in it. I agree, it's sketch. I also get super weird vibes from the whole company. They're definitely cult like and I get mlm vibes. People will shout at you if you question it though (again weird). I feel like if you have to put on your FAQs that you're not a MLM there's something wrong with your business model. I think the difference is they don't make you buy the product to sell to others, you just buy your own product (probably a min order) and get commission off of what people buy on your recommendation. Which is better than a normal direct sales company I guess, but that's why you get all those ig people pushing products 10x a day claiming the greens will cure you of everything. I think they have very low level "legionnaires" who aren't PTs or IGers, but I'm guessing they barely make any money and just annoy friends/family/acquaintances to death.

I agree with Treelee, except for the personal physical response to pre-workout. The ones I tried so far (3 diff brands) gave me more pre-lifting anxiety than "power" to do it. Or a sickening/nauseating sensation. My bf for instance, never feels anything other than nausea when he uses pre-workout.
I lift after work, when I'm usually tired so a short espresso does the trick for me, being that my nutrition is on point and sleep, well... I try :)
Sorry for what I say when I'm hungry.

I stopped drinking pre-workout a couple years ago and just have a coffee before the gym. Great for my coffee addiction, probably not great for my sleep but I only get like 4 minutes/night so oh well.
