    not sure if it will cause intracellular swelling, but it does seem to force more fluid into the vascular system which may be useful to a bodybuilder on contest day. Not sure of the timing or dosage as of now though.

        you should wait for Layne's response but I just wanted to suggest being careful with that because some fat burners have capsaicin in them which tastes really bad and or can be hot(spicy).

It takes about a month to get your system to 100% (no loading required) train with it at full capacity for a month, and then it takes about a month to get everything back to normal.
            thank you.

            • Hey guys, this is my first post here, but I've read about 47 pages of Layne's thread and I gotta say holy crap what a motherlode of information!

              First off, I'm not what you'd call a bodybuilder as of yet, I've just started training with a buddy of mine last week after being away for quite a while. Anyway, my question-or problem is this-when I used to wrestle in high school we did a very limited amount of weight training, and although I did gain strength, I did have a persisting thing with my arms shaking. I went from benching 125 to 165 for sets of 8 fairly quickly, weighing 155 during preseason. Anyway, we really did not focus on strength, mostly endurance-but I was wondering if this problem had anything to do with any deficiency of anything vital. I have to force myself to drink water, but I try to keep that up, and food for me is a very uh, erratic thing... I'm getting good amounts of food, I don't count everything up but I make sure protein is a main priority in all my meals.

              Hope I'm not too vague or anything, just wanted to ask before I forgot my question! I'm a weakling to begin with, just wanted to know if I have any nutritional things to worry about.

              Thanks for all the stuff you've written and researched yourself, it sure clears up a lot of muddle that I've been reading, been reading all the mags for quite a bit too...

                Pretty sure I used to get that too. I think it's a coordination kind of issue (for me at least); it soon disappeared.

                • Ah yes, I figured it would. We didn't train with exact regulation as some of you guys do. I wasn't so dedicated at building muscle as I was with school and wrestling at the time. It just bothered me that it persisted even when I gained enough strength where I figured it would have went away. I figured it was most likely a training issue, just wondering about any nutritional problems...

                    only kind of nutritional deficiencies I can think of would be something that has to do with cell turnover since the CNS turnsover relatively fast... something like folate or something like that or possibly a neurotransmitter issue but if you are getting enough protein you should have ample substrate for neurotransmitters.

                    do you take a multi?

                    • Max-ot training

                      layne,

                      im sure you get this question asked alot , but what are your thoughts on max-ot type training. they make good points on paper but how effective do you feel this type of training would be. here's a interview of jeff willet saying that max-ot is the best way to achieve maxima muscle and giving his points. i mean the program sounds semi soild but everyone who uses max-ot sounds like they have been "brain washed" , not sure if its a effective program or did ast make a program that even the biggest idiot could use the program and gain muscle and not screw it up then buy there supplements.

                        • I have a question for you Sir -

                          1 Would a bodybuilder benefit by including certain Olympic movements in his training? If so what rep range would be the most ideal?

                          Comment


                          • I have another question for you :

                            Past champions like Eder, Park, Grimek, Nubret, Columbo etc were very strong when it comes to bench pressing yet in that era nobody really heard much about pec-tears, which has been quite common recently in the pro circuit giving a bad reputation to bench press .What gives?

                              I think anabolics are partly to blame simply because they cause muscle tissue to turnover faster than connective tissue, thus in many cases the muscle gets much bigger and stronger before the connective tissue has a chance to 'catch up'. Much of it is also simply big egos trying to use more weights than they are ready for and finally there is always just freak accidents. You hear about more tears nowadays but remember there are also many many many more bodybuilders now.

                                I'm sure olympic movements could be beneficial if done with proper form to build power and explosiveness. I would stay in 3-10 rep range
