comment Whey protein recommendation
@Teusz If you spend some time looking for (more or less) trustful sources of information about protein & training (biomedical research papers, training guides for the army written by military doctors) you will have a surprise. The importance of whey may be overestimated due to commercial interests. That does not mean you should or shouldn't avoid whey. Try and see how it works for you. But be aware of this fact: protein contains as many calories per gram as carbohydrates. The protein excess you take will end up as fat tissue.

comment Whey protein recommendation
@Teusz I don't know what to tell you about the whey protein, I just think it is important to have some carbohydrates before your cardio class and avoid being on an empty stomach. People doing heavy barbell work and bodybuilding seem to benefit from a higher protein intake, but I have no idea about your situation. To me, casein taken before bedtime in addition to a reasonably good diet seems to help: I sleep better, don't wake up craving food any more, and I think I have a better recovery between workouts. But it is a very different situation.

comment Whey protein recommendation
I don't think an intensive cardio class on an empty stomach at the end of the day is a good idea at all. You might be now underperforming, taking away much of the fun of that class, and creating the conditions for a later night craving that may impair your sleep or make you gain fat in the long term. At least drink a fruit juice at the beginning of the cardio class. Or take with you a light sandwich when you depart from home each morning and eat it on the way to the gym. Two slices of whole corn bread and some cheese for instance. It takes 5 min to prepare it at home, and occupies little room.

comment I lost wight a lot but my waist size is exactly the same! Why?
Dieting without exercising = loss of muscle mass. Your body was programmed thousands years ago, when having energy reserves to survive was far more important that having a beach body. If you simply starve it without sending powerful signals that you need your muscles to survive, it will happily eat muscle and keep the fat. Yeap.

comment Frequency of shoulder rehabilitation exercises
What were those rehab exercises? Internal and external rotations standing? Please this is a very interesting question.

Be sure to throw together some honey into your shake. You probably need carbohydrates between leaving the office and your cardio class, more than protein (a light, whole wheat sandwich is not a bad idea either). As for whey, I have found casein more useful at my age (42). It is supposed to release a more steady supply of amino-acids during hours.

comment Walking very fast for 30 minutes, twice a day. In which measure is that “aerobic exercise”?
I did the C25K program months ago and approached the 40 min, but not daily. Are you sure that running every day is not dangerous on the knees? It seems to me a bad idea, excepts for those who are under 30 and fit.

comment What exercises can someone with Ligamentous laxity do for supple and strong muscles
@JohnP It is in fact one of the options I am pondering for myself. With the hidden hope of switching to Kung-Fu after a while if I feel confident (e.g., some months training without those "injury approaching" alarms I become now so often from my stupid body...)

comment What exercises can someone with Ligamentous laxity do for supple and strong muscles
I have been doing this exercise for my back for some time, lowering the bar progressively, and also the opposite (pushing with my body on top of the bar), I also have been doing bodyweight squats and those single-leg deadlifts. But I have to change something, because I am very often close to injuring myself. If you have loose joints, I recommend you engage in a good Tai Chi class. From there you can switch to Kung Fu later. Designing your own training can be frustrating and ineffective if you are prone to injuries.

It depends on your age and conditioning level. Ask here, I shouldn't give advise on that because I am trying myself to use calisthenics but my training does not work well. Beware of a famous book written by a fictitious convict. The general idea exposed there is good, but some of the exercises can be dangerous (stupid shoulderstand squat for a complete beginner) or simply unreal.
