Whats your favorite pre workout meal for hockey?

I feel like I have unlimited energy if I eat chicken with mashed potatoes about 2 hours before... on the flip side if I drink beer I can barely skate, or have a heavy pasta same thing.

I like to eat about three hours before so I'm not too full. I Don't really have a favourite but I definitely feel bloated with pasta. Chicken and veggies works for me.

Hockey and beer just don't mix with me. It's like I just can't multitask even after one or two.

I just planted it to make it quick stop and my knee gave out, that's it. Damnit. I'm icing it and stretching it. Feeling a bit better. So frustrating, I was just getting back into heavier squats again. I hope I can recover quick from this.

What part of your knee? Front back? Acl/mcl?

Take it easy. Stay off it. Tomorrow it will get much worse.... Hopefully it's nothing too serious

Same injury as before. Tendons below the patella. Walking today is difficult. Knee gives out under any load.

I've been icing a few times a day as well as using Dr. Ho's massage pads on the swollen area and plenty of stretching. It's better than I originally thought. Hoping to start recovery in a few weeks.

My knee has been feeling much better than I expected at this point so I decided to throw on my knee brace and get in some legs with my workout today. Went very well, no pain

Notables:

Dead lift: 8x135, 8x185, 8x225, 6x245

The 225 actually seemed pretty easy surprisingly so I threw in an extra set at 245.

Front Squat: 10x95, 10x135, 8x135

I definitely find that a 4-5 or so rest sometimes helps me to come back stronger at times. Was putting up some good numbers after the rest.

Yesterday, Random

Treadmill 3 mins
Med Ball Sit ups 50-50-50
Chest Press- 8x60, 8x70, 8x75
Dead lift- 8x135, 8x175, 5x255
Front Squat- 8x135, 8x135
Tricep Dips- 15,15,15 (I need to add weights I think)
Hammer curls w/30's x10x3
Other random stuff

I hit a bit of a wall probably because I ate crappy in the day. Looking forward to back squatting and changing up my routine next session. I have been trying my best to eat a lot of healthy food but I haven't gained a pound. Oh well, I guess staying at 155 is fine if my numbers are slowly improving.

Update:

I haven't updated this thread in a while but I've been keeping on track for the most part. I've pretty much given up on soccer for the season after my third injury over a month ago. I'm playing hockey 2-3 times per week and hitting the gym about the same. My numbers are slowly climbing, although I'm staying light on squats until my knee injury is 100%. I hope to be putting up PR's on upper body exercises by January.

As for nutrition I still have cheat meals occasionally but I stay on track about 9-10 meals.

Hey guys. I know it's been a while since I've been on here but I will be making a comeback once my work sched changes back to normal in a few weeks.

I have been recovering from that knee injury for the last few months and it has been frustrating. I have stopped playing soccer which really aggravates it and have been using a patella stabilizer for my hockey games.

I have been going to the gym a few times a week for months and I'm fairly positive I am at a point where I can finally start squatting heavy (for me) again. Next week I plan to get into the 200 mark.

My question is; If I feel any discomfort in the knee should I stop? Or should I just stop if I feel pain? With my recent squats I have noticed that leg is weaker and there is a minor discomfort in the knee. I am unsure if this is normal with recovery from a torn patella or if it is not fully healed.

See a surgeon. Take x-rays. My friend and I play soccer, same thing happened to his knee last year. In 2 months he had to get a surgery.

What were his symptoms? I should prob go see a doctor I guess (especially with our free healthcare) , I just assumed it would heal itself but it has been a slow process
