Best trainer certifications2008-04-23 06:50:51 by Trainer1960
In my experience the best trained trainers have one of the following certifications:
American College of Sports Medicine ( Strength & Conditioning Assoc. ( Council on Exercise (ACE)
They all have varying "levels" of certification and pre-requisites. Clearly, a certification which requires you to study for 6 months take sereval muti-hoiur exams and then requires continuing education after certification is better than one that certifies you one in a weekend course and never requires you to do continuing ed again (there is one like this out there!)
Carbs & Protein2008-05-26 18:56:30 by Arelem
I have read in several places that to maximize muscle R&R/building, after working out, its best to take in carbs and protein. One study I found from the American College of Sports Medicine's journal talked about taking 10g of protein and 7g of carbohydrates immediately after exercise proven to help increase lean muscle mass.
My question is about the nature of the protein and carbs. I've tried some the supplements aimed at weightlifters and they taste like crap. I did find Boost High Protein supplement and it tastes pretty good. Does anyone know if this is the kind of P&C that would fit the bill?
