    • I am actually in the process of working something out with a gym teacher to come speak to his class here in champaign. As far as x-factor goes i have not used it; there seems to be some evidence that it may work for some people, my guess is that if you happen to be on the lowside/deficient in arachidonic acid then you would notice big time benefits; but if you have normal levels of AA you probably won't notice much

        • If there's a lat pulldown you can always do old school ham curls. Put your back to the machine and hook your heels under the knee rest with your knees on the seat. Keep your back straight and your arms across your chest and lower yourself down bending only at the knees until you're almost parallel with the floor, the squeeze the hams while still only bending at the knees and curl yourself back up. I like to do it with either a bench set at an incline in front of me so I spot myself and set how low I'm going to go, or better yet I hook up a closegrip or rope to the lat pulldown and set it at a low weight and hold it behind my head as an assist.

            1. i think your protein intake is too high. I have literally spent the last 8 years of my life studying protein and more recently my studies at the graduate school level have been spent studying protein synthesis and metabolism in depth. There is just no evidence that anything over 1g/lb is beneficial for anabolism and there is evidence that going too high can actually reduce the anabolic response. I would mitigate your intake to 1.5g/lb.

            2. shakes are not 'needed' persay but there is also no reason to cut them out

            muscletech does not put out bad products, they are just expensive and their claims are a bit outlandish
            I find that all protein products are pretty much useless as it is simple to get adequate amounts in a 2000-2900 caloric threshold. Most people overconsume protein for no apparent reason other than paranoia.

              Legs days are what seperates the men from the boys. Hell arms... joke. Chest... that's for fun. Back... not even close. Shoulders? Walk in the park. Legs are what seperates the recreational lifter from the truly intense. Just keep that in mind whenever you feel like skimping on leg day.

                i agree that most do overconsume protein out of paranoia but protein powders can be useful for convienience if nothing else, or if someone is a vegetarian, or has certain food allergies that may prevent them from getting protein from typical sources

                    • Hi Layne

                      Hows this for a fat loss diet? My goal is to lose 15% BF or about 43lbs, and bring my stomach down to about 36inches to start.

                      Right now i'm at 238lbs 30% BF.

                      I lost 100lbs last year.

                      I weight lift 4-5 times a week and do cardio on my days off, sometimes after weight lifting and sometimes in the morning on the day of weightlifting.

                      7:30am:

                      Shake
                      1 cup pasturized egg whites
                      1 23g scoop of whey protein isolate
                      5g gulatmine
                      Half a banana
                      half a cup of red river hot cereal (raw)
                      dash of milk for texture
                      1 scoop of daily veggie

                      10:30am:

                      1 can of tuna mixed with olive oil and a whole carrot

                      1:30pm:

                      140g cooked chicken breast
                      1cup of veggies
                      1cup of whole wheat or bean related carb source.

                      4:30pm:
                      140g cooked chicken or fish
                      1cup of veggies
                      1cup of whole wheat or bean related carb source.

                      630pm workout

                      Post workout protein shake + 5g of gulatmine.
