    i kind of doubt it. other than it would suck just drinking all your meals. but physiologically, i doubt it

    you need enough protein to optimize anabolic signaling. I will have an article about this coming out in next months MD i believe

    HIT is garbage *braces for impact*

    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

    Also, I was checking out SciVation's whey protein on bb.com and I notice there is not much info on amino profile and such, especially when comparing it to other brands. I really want to buy the 10lb'r for $65 because that's such a great deal, but I'd like some more info on my purchase. Just seeing if you knew what was up with that?
    Thanks bro. Peace!
    it's no different really than any other whey. plenty of good stuff

    I graduate in may with my PhD assuming nothing catastrophic happens between now and then

    yea bro.. that's why i spend 3 months of column space writing about not to make any drastic changes LOL. what do you want me to beat you over the head with it LOL?

Especially on low carb days? I am on 1/4th cup off oats in the morning then 4 oz sweet potatoes and thats it for the day. I dont really get cravings but i just miss having a filler in between meals. I think not having this filler makes my meal cadence get out of whack as well.
    meal 1 - 6-630 am
    meal 2 - 930 am
    meal 3 - 1230 shake
    meal 4 - 130
    meal 5 - 330
    meal 6 - 7-8
    meal 7 - 9-930
    thanks for your help.
    not sure what you mean. i guess diet soda is guilt free because it doesn't have calories.

    but i'm not exactly sure what your question means. it's not clear

    yea. change it up and do something different than you are doing now.

    i mean you guys cannot ask such general questions and expect specific targeted answers

    rule of thumb, general question gets a general answer

    specific question gets a specific answer

    thanks
    1. don't know enough about estrogen to really comment on that; but in general you certainly don't want it too high

    2) you can increase mitochondrial density through high intensity cardio

    not sure about beta receptor density

    As someone who keeps a constant P/F/C rotation diet how often would you suggest throwing in a cheat meal OR just switching in a meal with Say a different more fatty meat rather than my typical chicken, eggs, etc.?

    I tend to get into the strict dieting regimen and it is VERY hard for me to switch things up EVER even though i have learned it is suppose to be very beneficial to do so every so often

    thanks for your thoughts bro
    i don't recommend cheat meals. I recommend targeted increases in specific nutrients with specific targets in mind but i do not recommend un monitored cheats.

    layne, what do you think of wendler 5/3/1 training ?

    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"

    http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/abstract/89/1/161

    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
