Love this site...just what I was looking for!!! I am training for a few sprint tri's this year...I did them all last year so I would look forward to seeing better times this year...but most of all... the training leading up to these events keeps me fit & healthy & that is why I love my NB...fresh veggie juice...post run recovery fruit blasts....I only have positive things to say about my NB...I feel it is my best training partner this year!!!! Oh...& I am 55 years old...no wait ...let's make that 55 years young...& I just started doing tri's last year so there....it's never to late!!!!! Thanks for this forum!!!
Music to my ears Heather! Tell me what your goals are this year and hopefully I can help you acheive then - from the nutrition end of training! It has been said that training is 20% and Nutrition is 80% of the plan :) Jenn

How is the training going everyone? Tell me what you have done thus far and what is yet to come this season! Heather-I agree that the NutriBullet is the best training partner there is!! I even take it with me when I travel for races :)
Hi every one I' m new to NB and very exited can some one provide feedback for ABs exercises and combined with very good nutritious nutriblast proteins Thanks in advance Ruben Aldrete
Hi Ruben! Welcome toHi Ruben! Welcome to NutriBullet and to NutriLiving! Be prepared for a major positive life change! Core exercises are extremely important for a variety of reasons. Among my favorites are planks. Performed correctly and regularly they are a very effective way to build core strength. I suggest both front planks and side planks. Begin with holding a plank for 10 secs at first and increase each week until you can manage 60 seconds or more! Perform 3 sets of each allotted time and try and do them every day! As for protein packed NutriBlasts you will find many recipes and ideas on this site but to start you off on the right track try this one: Cherry Vanilla Blast 1/2 cup almond milk 1/4 cup frozen dark and sweet cherries 1 banana 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder 1 tbsp ground flax seeds Combine all ingredients and blast. This blast provides you with the necessary protein, complex carbohydrates for before or after a workout! Enjoy! Jenn Giles
