      • Dave advocates less volume, doing about 2 working sets per exercise and stopping just short of failure
        I min/max my physique

        • on keto your stamina would be reduced so you won't be able to do as much

          • Layne,
            What do you think about an Arginine and Orthinine combo like NOW's

                hej layne thanks for the answer

                yeah i known it is alot dont known if it is to much trying to grow
                i am a really hard gainer

                i went from 207-221 in like 9 weeks i think

                the bad thing is that i am not as good looking when i was on a diet hehe i was like 197

                • well I think that putting on 14 lbs in 9 weeks is just too fast. you can only synthesize muscle tissue so fast. Max rate of fractional protein synthesis in humans is around 0.5% per day; so even if protein degradation is minimal that means a person who has 150 lbs of skeletal muscle tissue is going to have a hard time putting on more than 1/2 lb muscle per week max.

                    • honestly i would back your fat off and your carbs off. 140+ grams of fat is entirely too much

                      • Layne what do you think about the setpoint theory?

                        Lately I've been mini cutting/bulking and trying to keep myself around 10-12% bodyfat, but I notice my metabolism likes to slow down right when I get to the 12-14% mark, and when I begin a bulk, I tend to add a good chunk of fat and can easily get into the 14-16% range...and then all of a sudden I'm always hot, sweat and get my HR up a lot more during exerecise and basically shows signs of my metabolism speeding up....

                        point being it seems that my "set point" (if this theory is valid) is around 12-15%....am I spinning my wheels trying to stay 10-12% in the offseason, and spending too much time cutting when I could be bulking in the 14-16% bodyfat range?

                        I'm down to about 12% after a good month and a week of cutting, and I'm giong to keep cutting for about another week or so and then try a solid, moderate carb bulk with sesamin, ala, and some other "keep fat at bay" supps trying to gain .5lbs/week in attempt to gain mostly lean body mass...maybe my lack of diligence and willpower is making me think my set point is higher than it is...well we'll find out after a little while into my lean bulk

                        thanks

                        • this will seem out of left field but humor me. How bad did you binge after your show and how much weight did you gain in the first 2 weeks?
