DC training has some good elements but what I do not like about it is that it focuses solely on strength increases (as well as some rep increases) as a means of increasing overload and does not take advantage of periodization (other than the 'cruise' periods which are not exactly ingrained in the routine from my understanding) or changes in volume as a means of increasing overload
Decide on a show yet for this year?
Gentlemen, you have two choices: Mamma Mia or Jersey Boys.
i forgot to ask this
what do you think of this study ?
"Ingested protein dose response of muscle and albumin protein synthesis after resistance exercise in young men"
saying that 20g of protein for people with a mean weight of 86.1kg is sufficient to maximaly stimulate protein synthesis after resistance training
they say it's probably best to eat 20g of protein 5-6 times a day.
This is what i did before i started to take bcaa's in between meals after i read your study
well actually the 40g dose did increase protein synthesis 11% more than the 20g dose; it just wasn't statistically significant. If you pumped up the # of subjects in that study you might have gotten it to be significantly different and then it's a whole different ballgame. Also, that study was done post workout when you are MORE sensitive to the anabolic effects of protein, so extrapolating this out to ALL meals of the day is a stretch. maybe 20g maximally stimulates post workout but what about other meals? Our data suggests it may take 30-40g in adults.
It's a really good study and I like Dr. Phillips a lot, but it is hardly the final word on the subject
