    • do you think it is better to take beta alanine or carnosine. I read that carnosine breaks down into beta alanine and another amino. Just wondering which one you think is better? also do you take it pre AND post workout?

      • carnosine is made from beta-alanine & histidine, since on a high protein diet you'll have an excess of histidine, taking beta alanine is just as good as carnosine and it's about 10x cheaper than carnosine

                Understand, kind of sucks, but I know what you mean. I probably shouldn't even be prepping right now (2 jobs, child on way!!!!!, chance of getting head coaching job in spring, new curriculum at school).

                Keep at it bro. You are such an inspiration and a help to others. It's really cool to see someone like you doing so much for people and the sport. I wish there were some "natural" conventions for us guys to go to and hang out, talk, watch natty bodybuilders...the pro shows/expos are great, but lets be honesty, someone like me is pretty damned insignificant at one of those and it's impossible to get a chance to actually talk to someone at those huge shows.

                    the goal is to get mine out by christmas or early 2008. As far as academic books, there is a good textbook out there written by stipanik that i would recommend. As far as kinesiology i am less knowledgable about good books but one i did like was Skeletal Muscle: structure, function, and plasticity.

                    as far as pros' books/DVDs I am hard pressed to think of good one's. I know Justin Harris has a DVD out, I watched it and thought it had some good nutrition info in there. The DVD is called "project superheavyweight" My friend Jason Wojonowski (i think i butchered his last name) has a DVD coming out and he's pretty well educated (PhD in immunology) so that might be a good pick up as well.

                    John Hanson, John Harris, & Rob Hope are all natural champions who have DVDs out right now, though I have not seen them yet.

                    -Layne
                    how funny was that when justin harris cramped up on his dvd. I cant beleive that didnt edit that out. so what did you end naming your dvd?

                    • Layne. I am a competitive athlete (baseball) and starting monday we will be having weights @ 6am (intense olympic lifts and complexes) as well as practice @ 2pm. What would be something I could eat when I wake up @ 5 30 that will be quick and provide sufficient energy to lift? I will sip ~ 6-8 scoops Xtend during training if that matters. Also, because I have the Xtend for during training, do I need the insulin spike PWO or should I just have a regular meal with P + C + F? These are kind of scivation diet questions but I was wondering your advice on the subject.

                      • I'm not Layne, but my suggestion would be whey protein with some type of carbs or EFA's. You could use honey, ezekial bread, fruit. I personally would go with Flaxseed oil, but that is because I get nauseous eating carbs early in the morning before a workout.

                        BTW, GOOD LUCK! I played college baseball and a ;year of semipro. Hope you have a great seaosn!

                        • Layne, couple of quick questions.

                          1. I'm a little confused by trying to read some of the literature right now on the difference between a protein and a BCAA. My understanding is that a protein was a BCAA. Can you clarify the differences for me? What makes one better than the other in certain time frames?

                          2. One of my friends in the office where I work has asked me about how beneficial high levels of protein would be to a person who lifts only twice a week, but does triathalons. I could only tell him about the fat I lost using a high protein/low carb diet and lifting because I limited my cardio to the minimum I needed for my unit PT. Do you have any advice references for me to give to him?

                          3. I made my goal for meeting weigh in requirements for the physical fitness test, and want to add carbs back into my diet. Actually I have started putting carbs up varying 100-150g/day for the last several days. Is there a happy mediuum between mass building and dieting such that I can continue to lose fat/lovehandles and build some crazy muscle?

                          Thanks for your time, Layne. It means a lot to us little guys to be abe to get advice/knowledge from the people who are the top in this sport.
