It would help, but you'll see it in other areas of your body too, so I'd be sure to work out on the entire body. How did this happen?

Had my ACL replaced....got the range of motion back now just working on rebuilding the muscle. I do full body workouts with weights and have finally gotten back to spin class. Just thinking it might help speed up the process.

I've already lost 5 or 6 pounds in a week and a day.

I agree with you, Infamous, that the protein shakes can be bad in some ways. I definitely don't recommend them unless someone's objective is bulking. I stopped drinking them as much earlier in the summer because I wanted to enter more of a leaning and conditioning phase... it has worked very well.

Now I have to get strong for the season...!!!
Thank you! Because a lot of people argue with me day in and day out and they swear by these protein shakes and supplements and they can't live without it etc etc. Unless you dont have time to eat protein and drink some calcium after a workout, then yes these shakes will be beneficial to you, but you must use it as a meal replacement! All the extra protein your body doesn't need turns right into adipose tissue...a.k.a FAT!

One protein shake I use (as a meal replacement) is optimum nutrition. You are getting straight protein without all the other crazy stuff thats in these things. Mix it with half low fat milk, half water, and you got yourself a pretty nutritous shake...Professionals are now saying that calcium after a workout is just as important as protein, if not more.

Yes it would help with recovery time after a workout, but my suggestion to you would be to add some flax seed oil to your diet as well. Yes sounds gross, but just take a deep breath, hold your nose and swallow it. Or you could just eat flax seeds (make sure they are ground flax seeds first or your body wont be able to digest it). Both of these natural foods are great for healing muscles and any injuries. Flax seed oil is also great for your joints. Look it up...It has so many health benefits! I know people think of bones when they hear calcium, but just like I said before, its also extremely important to your muscles as well. So take some calcium supplements also. Good luck!

Yeah, weight lifting is great for muscle and bone density, but only if you get the right amount of calcium.

There is a peanut butter called Naturally More that uses a flax oil base (also contains flax seeds) and I eat it almost everyday... good stuff... Naturally More - What Peanut Butter Should Be

Lifting has been a part of my life for 13 years now (am 27), was definitely into it before I was into snowboarding. There's some "interesting" advice in this thread.

When people ask me for advice, I simply tell them what has worked for me.

That's the problem, people come on here and state "facts" because they're in school or have worked out for a year or something... That's the first thing I tell people as well, I can really only tell you the facts about what I've done and what works for me. Actually, I guess there is one fact I tell people- genetics rule everything, and as such, what works for me or Ronnie Coleman or God probably isn't gonna work for you...

Ex. A person in this thread stated that any unused protein taken in from a supplement shake will turn to adipose tissue. They know, they're in school for this! Hmmm... Wrong. Advice like this is misleading and simply not true for everyone.

I agree with spirit. I get so tired of people stating things as a fact because someone told them it was. I have been working out for 22 years and I have had tons of training partners and we all have DIFFERENT needs. So somebody with a year or two school can go preach to somebody else because I have lived what you have only read about. I done all types of sports like wrestling, football, soccer, surfing (on a team), hockey, and snowboarding. They all there own challenges when it comes to conditioning. There is no right answer or magic pill it just takes hard work.
