    I drink milk after every workout. I usually just buy a half gallon and down it shortly after a workout. Milk has natural sugars, some ions (Na+ Cl- K+, etc), vitamins and minerals, and a bunch of protein. Its also pretty cheap in comparison to other drinks/supps. I'm surprised more people don't drink it after a workout, instead of gatorade.

    When I was in college I was into protein powders, but now I drink slightly soured (clabbered) raw milk. When you sour raw milk, the bacteria digest some of the lactose into lactic acid which reduces the stress on the pancreas. I keep my gallons of raw milk refrigerated, pour a pint of milk in a glass and stir in a teaspoon of a good quality plain yogurt as an inoculant, then let it sit out in a warm place loosely covered. It's ready when it slightly thickens 8-24 hrs depending on the temperature.

    .....to look at Old Time Strongmen/lifters of the pre-roid era. Its this topic of drinking MILK that brought me full circle to articles I used to read about training and nutrition based in the early 1950's. We should also look at exercises and repetition schemes combined with periods of rest that a generation previous to us had pioneered. It has been long ago forgotten as PED's entered the mix. Things like dessicated liver tablets, Brewers yeast, and powdered milk may still have merit today!

    A look back in time may yield some valuable gems of information from athletes of the past. Perhaps someone here on the ring as access to this kind of information.

    "It was an (option)- (...quart of "Power" Milk- "Mix" not Milk to make a quart not qurt. "Throwing" not theorwing. I am usually a better speller. Old fingers, arthritis and shortened finger have created problems over the years. Will promise to do better in the future when I send a message. Thanks C.B. Nebraska - N2thros

    While I'm not saying Schult is one of the all-time great discus throwers and technicians, I don't think you can conclude he's the best ever because of his WR. He himself said in an interview after that meet that he just caught a lucky gust of wind on that throw, and added something like "please don't expect me to throw this every time." He also only threw over 70m one other time in his career. Maybe he is the best technician ever anyway, but his 74.08 was a freak throw that I don't think you can really count in matters like this.
