    To be honest, depending on what goals you have it's difficult to over train as people say, as long as you're not training the same body part each day and you're splitting up what you're doing and mixing it all up it's all good. I know guys and fitness models that train twice a day, splitting cardio and weights. I might start doing that but I don't want my social life to suffer. so might only do it one or 2 days a week..! And the protein bar recipe I shall post up very soon! I've got some pics somewhere too so you can check if it looks right...

    Right so here's the recipe for homemade protein bars:

    250g Alpen (No sugar) or Dorset Cereal

    250g Natural Peanut butter (best stuff is in holland & barrett) otherwise go organic - whole earth is a good one. NEVER USE SUNPACK! or any of the other processed s***!

    150g Sultanas or Raisins

    50g Pumpkin Seeds

    50g Sunflower seeds

    50g Linseed (i used golden linseed in the end)

    50g Brazil nuts

    25g Sesame seeds

    5tbl sp honey - good quality

    6 scoops chocolate flavour protein powder

    275ml milk to soften - skimmed (red top)

    Directions: Simply put all ingredients into a big bowl and mix together, add the milk to soften. Put on tray and press out so about 1-2 inch thick - cover with cling film over night and ENJOY.


    Had pics but cannot access my flickr account to get codes or put them on there as I haven't been on there in so long they have deactivated my ID or something. anyone know any other good free image hosting sites I can put images on to work on here?

    I also have a sweet potato protein muffin recipe if anyone is interested??

    thanks. Here's the nutritional facts:

    (per 100g) - which is size of bars you should cut it into. You can also do 50g ones if you like.

    385kcal
    29g protein
    20g fat
    of which saturates - 2g
    6g fibre

    I should charge for all this! lol

    Your nephew is at Uni currently and wishes to join the Military after? if that's correct?

    A PTI in the Army is generally a lvl 2 and an NVQ qualification meaning It can be taken and used into civie street (it's the equivalent of a Gym Instructor). You can opt to do your lvl 3 but that requires you normally to be a Lcpl or above.

    Normally people who go to Uni first join the Military as an Officer, I'm unfamiliar with these routes.

    PTI course within the Military is approx 9 weeks long and requires no experience but you do have to be considerably fit as you are normally selected to go on the course.

    Hope that helps.

    the difference will be that when you join as an officer you're initial training is longer and more in depth - generally - also this should mean that he can get his lvl 3 sooner as he's higher rank than lcpl to start with. So lee, how long you been serving then?

    Thanks for the clear up :)

    Its coming upto 5 years now, 2nd time I have been recommend for promotion so fingers crossed!

    I have done 1 tour of Afghanistan based in Kabul.

    My intentions are to leave and take my fitness experience into civie street, hence why I am currently doing qualifications with Premier. Lots of other decisions to be made though on when I sign off or do I take the next tour?!?

    That's me, yourself within the military?

    I too may be able to help out here... I've done a little bit of weight lifting in my time (7 WR's).

    My good friend is a top sports nutritionist, does diet plans for premiership rugby players and the lads out The Lost Prophets. If I don't know the answer, I always ask him (he's also an international rugby player, so practises what he preaches).

    got a lot of respect for you mate having toured Afghan. If all goes well I'll soon be an aircraft maintenance mechanic in the RAF - got my final 308 interview on 2nd August. hence why I may know the application process for the military a little more since I've just been through it all recently! big into my fitness though not looking forward to basic training cos i can't train as much as i'm used to!

    Thanks very much!

    Good luck with your final interview, just a word of advice on basic training; regardless of how bull**** it is or how your treated etc. It is NOT the field Army or in your case RAF. Once you get to your first unit then it starts!

    I think that program was comparing recovery/energy type drinks which revealed that milk was a better option. Doubt that milk have the same protein content when compared to a protein shake

    Yeah, i think they were trying to compare hydration effects from milk compared to water/energy drinks.

    They didn't state that milk is better for muscle growth and repair then protein shakes.

    That whole program seemed pretty poor to me.
