    Thank you very much for your educated answers. Not only did you answer my question, but even threw in the routine to utilize it. Thanks again.

        i do higher volume as well. not super high. but this is the thing. dont limit yourself to a certain amount of sets or reps. imo these are just barriers. how many times have you done 3 sets of 10 reps but probly could have done 5 sets of 11 or 12? whenever i go to the gym the only thing that is preconceived is what excercises im gonna do. sometimes im not feelin that great and i'll only do 2 sets other times ill be flyin high and do 10 sets for things like legs. just listen to your body. be instinctive. thats what this is all about. remember your muscles dont count your brain does and if you wanna work that out theres plenty of love novels out there for you to read. or maybe you can do a nice crossword and have a cup of tea and crumpets

        • yea i agree that you need to not get TOO hung up on rep/set schemes. In the end the one question you need to ask yourself is "am I working harder than the guy who will be onstage next to me"

            • If anyone cares...My post about 'Hot Rox Extreme'. I heard back from the INBA. They said it was ok. I really feel like the old days when ephedrine was 'ok'. It feels like the ephedrine/caff/asprin stack used to...if anyone is interested. Not sure if it is really working though...I am losing a little fat.

                in your opinion would you say that high volume training stimulates the metabolism more than say low volume.i don't understand how someone training dc or low volume could be stimulating the metablism only working out 30-45 min a few times each week

                  if you have researched dc (intensemuscle.com) at all you would know that there are other things to the program as well besides the rest pause sets. for instance cardio is recommended every morning on an empty stomach. high doses of green tea extract. carb cut offs. things like that. there is alot more to dc than everyone thinks. i suggest going there and reading as much as possible

                        leucine is what stimulates protein synthesis but isoleucine also stimulates glucose uptake, so it does have benefits, but if you are on a budget pure leucine will work fine

                          yea more or less. If the bodypart is a weakpoint (back/legs) it will get more sets, if it is a strength like chest, I do probably half as many sets as I do for back

                              • Layne, since we're on the subject of bcaa's. When is the best time to supplement with them? I.e. pre-workout, during, post. I just started taking Xtend (grape flavor). That stuff tastes like Cool Aid! By a recommendation I was told to drink it during my workout, But the directions say immediately post workout. With 16oz. of post workout whey protein (ON), maltodextrin, and creatine. Another 16oz. of bacc fluid seems like a bunch of fliud at one time. Would you suggest combining them?
