17-My "Barbarian" Post Workout Power Shake

This video is a quick look at how I make my own post-workout "Barbarian" Protein Shake. I throw alot of good stuff in there, including:
  • yogurt
  • whey protein
  • 'good' fats (ie- flax oil or fish oil)
  • baby carrots
  • an apple
  • a handful of spinach
  • oatmeal
  • grape juice
  • creatine
  • frozen berries
...and more.

Check it out, and leave me a comment with your protein "power" shake recipes.

If you checked out my post from last week, you saw Jeff Anderson's information on how to "Make Your Own Supplements". As he explains you don't need to spend alot of money on fancy, expensive supplements. I would argue that most of that extra money you would spend on "big name" supplements goes toward exaggerated advertising and marketing hype!

This makes me mad.

In most cases you can find nutritional supplements of the same quality for a much lower price, or you can purchase the ingredients yourself at a fraction of the cost! If you want more information on supplementing your diet, and how to save money by making your own supplements, check out Jeff’s site at, or post your questions below; you can also sign up to see a video on his site that shows you how he makes a great pre-workout energy drink.

I’ve read his ebook, and used some of his ideas myself… there is some good stuff in there.

Ok, I've been focusing on nutrition for a few posts now, and hopefully it's helped you all stay on track over the holidays! Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some great training information with you (ie- bodyweight workouts, core training, home workout ideas, etc). Stay tuned for that!

Stay fit,

Your shake looks awesome, but an awful lot of work. When I'm pressed for time, I throw together my shake with plain yogurt, a bit of milk, mixed berries, protein powder, and a bit of ground flax. It's a great post workout snack - filling, healthy, and delicious... YUMMY!
