10 bottles of muscle milk per day. Thank me later for the advice, after you can karate chop through a cinder block.

deena kastor drinks muscle milk, so i'm on board with this plan.

From emruns on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 10:10:03 from

EWWW. Muscle Milk has a nasty aftertaste. How about a milkshake instead? Oh wait . . .you wanted to build MUSCLE, not fat. Guess you're stuck with the aftertaste.

Also, Josh Cox is sponsored by Ellipti-Go now... I refresh their website every hour to see when James' profile is going to appear on their elite athlete list. Tell him to get on it!

From Jake K on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 10:12:19 from

For the record Emily, I think muscle milk is gross, and I go w/ ice cream / milkshakes 100% of the time... and I can pretty easily lift like 5-10 pounds STRAIGHT OVER MY HEAD, so that pretty much tells you all you need to know about how buff I've gotten on my plan.

From allie on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 10:17:20 from

my secret is greek yogurt. i can do one pull-up.

i already made james an ellipti-go singlet, but we are still saving up for the actual device. he's more into race-walking now anyway...

From Chad Robinson on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 10:22:50 from

FYI - Protien powder, yogurt, a banana, and apple juice all blended up make a decent smoothie/drink with no after taste.

From Carina on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 10:26:53 from

I love greek yogurt, but I still can't do a pull up. Hmmmm.... Maybe I should beef up my buff plan!!

From Rachelle on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 11:57:30 from

You better share all of your muscle building secrets with us. :)

From rAtTLeTrAp on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 12:04:52 from

Greek yogurt must go straight to your knees.

From Kam on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 13:24:41 from

Are we back to pull-ups again? You should consider doing targeted training to avoid further increasing your massive knee muscles.

From Lily on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 15:27:32 from

Muscles shmuscles. I had some once upon 3 months ago. Now I am just running it all off.... oh well.

Run. soon. Allie-cat.

Nice miles.

I was thinking about asking for some nutritional advice. I may come back and ask you guys.

Considering a Tough Mudder for July 14th. And upper body is what I will need to work on!

From Jake K on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 15:49:36 from

PRE - Dolphin and eagle are the best sources of protein.

From runningafterbabies on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 22:11:43 from

I thought Gaston's method of downing raw eggs was worth trying at least once. The next time I see you I'm gonna ask you to flex.

From Dan on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 22:40:41 from

Nice 8. Just put protein powder in your cookies hulk. Works great.

From Tara on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 08:16:05 from

Jake you have led us all astray, there is a secret- muscle milk!

Allie I'm not so sure Deena drinks it, let me ask her sice I'm friends with her. Oh! Yep she does. She just messaged me. Carry on with the lifting and milk plan. And sice there's talk of targeted muscle groups it seems only obvious that you should inject muscle milk right where you want it. I'm pretty sure it turns into pure muscle once it enters the body. I hear Greek yogurt makes you work for it.

From Lysa on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 11:24:21 from

allie, you're muscles are Huge! One pull up is big. I tried to do it at my son's soccer game the other day bc it was in a Jr.High gym with bars, and it was pathetic. Funny when you think you're all cool and you can just walk up and do pull ups like you used to when you were young, and you get a sad reality check. Maybe I need to buy the muscle milk.

From allie on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 12:24:54 from

dolphin is $34.99/lb at costco. forget it.

From Toby on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 19:05:08 from

Ms. A (instead of Mr. T) need to post pictures of these muscles. The people need to see what eating dolphin does!

From Kam on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 20:42:43 from

Sometimes costco includes a $4 off coupon in their monthly mailer for dolphin.

Bigger savings can be had if you just eat tuna that isn't dolphin free. Look for the cans that have nets and harpoons on the logo, or find a tuna manufacturer that doesn't have separate processing equipment for the tuna and dolphin. You can be sure there will be plenty of cross-contamination.
