    • 1 What is your opinion on CLA? Is it worth considering? If so how much serving would be beneficial?

      2 What is your opinion on heavy floor presses in chest training?

        I agree that they will help with power and explosiveness, however I would have to disagree with your rep recomendations. I would say keep them at 4 reps per set or less. I would also add that they should be done first during the routine.

        If the reps go much higher than 4, the muscle will start to fatigue and comprimise A) Explosivity (which is why you are doing them in the first place) and B) Form, due to fatigue.

        They should be done first in the routine because of their complexity. If a given muscle group is already fatigued from prior moves it will prevent you from getting the most out of the Oly lifts for the same reasons as above.

        Just my .02 Hope you didn't mind.

          • actually 1-3 reps would be a lil bit better for the o lifts.

            Once your form starts to compromise in these lifts your really risking serious injury.

            Its all neural with oly lifts not muscular so 1-3 reps is perfect for training the nervous system, anymore than that and u defeat the purpose of doing the lift.

                haha thats a good one man. How about this:
                "Bodybuilding in the Norton Layne"

                Got a question Layne.
                For the pre-workout meal (which is about 100-110 g Carbs for me), which is the better scenario?
                1) eat all the carbs 1.25 - 1.75 hours pre-workout and then 15-30 minutes before, have a shake of BCAAs and citrulline malate
                2) eat 3/4 of the carbs 1.25 - 1.75 hours pre-workout and then 15-30 minutes before, have a shake of 1/4 of the carbs (in the form of oats and dextrose, mostly oats; only like 8 g dextrose), BCAAs, and citrulline malate

                I've been doing scenario 2 for some time and i think its unnecessary to have carbs that close to the workout. And if i start doing scenario 1, whats the best time to have that shake to reap benefit of citrulline malate... right before workout, T-minus 15 min, or T-minus 30 min??

                I appreciate any help Layne; I wanna optimize nutrition now while i have time 'cuz when first yr uni comes in September i wont have time to think about it; just execute.

                • Layne (or anyone else who may be able to answer), I was prescribed Hydrocodone for pain after I broke my finger. I only plan to take it for a short time, but was curious if it has any potentially negative effects on testosterone levels. Thanks in advance.

                      • Layne would you use for a weight gaining shake?
                        I heard of the old school jug method but wasn't sure if it was a good idea?
                        ????
                        I guess it what old bodybuilders used before weight gainer were sold as supplements?
                        1/2 gallon whole milk
                        2 cups no sugar added ice cream
                        2 cups heavy whipping cream
                        16 oz cottage cheese
                        2 bananas
                        6 whole eggs
                        6 scoops of whey protein
                        4 TBSP natural peanut butter

                        Drink it 3 times day WITH meals not as a replacement

                              • Holy crap, that's at least 12,000 calories a day!

                                Hey Layne, I've shied away from sups and pills, not sure what actually works and what's hyped, and even read that things in pill format don't readily absorb as good as food does. I've probably read too much (your articles are quite good though), is there any good round multi out there you can vouch for? I feel kind of dumb with these questions, I've read quite a bit, but it seems EVERYTHING is good for ya, and I really don't know what to worry about specifically...
